This was paired with a Gewurztraminer. Not the usual crisp bite of a cider, or carbonation, more a mellow sweetness with just a slight bitterness. Easy on the palate, and a soft body as well. Such an amazing cider. Different but one of the best.

Pours golden. Smell is lightly of apple and maybe almost oaky. White wine like smell and taste. Dry, and lightly tart with enough sweetness to balance. Low carbonation. Really reminds me of a nice balanced wine and cider mix. Very nice.

matta (1140) - Tampa, Florida, USA - MAY 28, 2009
750ml - A bright golden body with very little head. The aroma is crisp semi green/red apples, you know the apples that have the blush streaks of red and green; hell, I don’t know much about apple varieties, I’ve just eaten a lot of them. The flavor is rather dry, an awesome earthy and grassy tartness, a bit mineral-y. Taste like a crisp juicy perfectly ripened apple, but also reminds me of a lightly carbonated French Chardonnay. My palate picks up more tart than sweet. Nice mouthfeel, perfect carbonation. I’m a huge fan of boutique ciders… Very complex and artisan!

Bottle. Pours clear straw yellow-gold. Aroma is medium-sweet honeyed apples with faint straw, dry grass notes. Pleasant apple flavor with a good sweetness and faint ginger notes. Smooth, lightly dry, lightly sweet with a hint of tartness at the end.
Earlier Rating: 4/24/2006 Total Score: 3.2
Pours clean, crystal yellow, some tiny bubbles lazily erupt from the glass bottom. Aroma is floral, sweet light malt (hay) and a green apple, grape nose. Tart green apple, slightly sweet and moderately acidic flavor that makes your mouth water, even as you drink, alcohol notes near the end. Light but firm body, clean palate.

Pours straw golden with tiny bubbles present. Nose involves green apple skin, dust, earth, and tart citric notes. Lightly sweet, quite a bit tart. Light bodied, fairly active, with a long dry, tart apple skin finish. I enjoyed this quite a bit, nice and refreshing, well put together.

JB175 (1665) - Bucks County, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 22, 2008
Golden pour with a thick aroma of tart apple, spice, and a light woodiness. Flavor is slightly sweet with a nice degree of carbonation that plays well off some sweet/tart apples. Quite flavorful. Nice cider.

Bottle courtesy bu11zeye. Clear light yellow color with very little carbonation. Aroma is fruity apple. Light bit of honey. Flavor is flavorful apple with a light tart crisp. Easy finish that remains sweet fruit. Good.

MicroGrog (303) - FT: Stale Polotmavý in Queens, New York, USA - JUN 22, 2011
UPDATED: JUN 23, 2011 Bottle from New Beer($5.50). 6.9%abv. Unbranded tulip pour. Pale golden body. Spritzy soda head. Heavy nucleation coming from an un-etched glass. Yay! Smells oddly like a blend of whit beer & champagne. Green fruit, yeast, & something similar to coriander. Intro is crabby/tart & a bit yeasty, moving further into sour candy tartness. Bittersweet throughout, fruity, nearly brut, but not all the way. Acid seems kind of mild overall, as it turns floral, dry, & seemingly grain-like middle end on. Lemony, leafy green, & almost bone dry finish. Missing ginger that was advertised. Remains a bit simple. Glassy texture. Champagne-like carbonation. Thin & somewhat numbing. Pasty & dry. Alcohol is in check, preservatives are used sparingly. At half the price, this is a better dry then most of that Farnum Hill stuff you boobs swoon over. Yeah, it doesn’t seem to undergo a second fermentation, but there is more fruit, & the alcohol is well hidden. I have high hopes for that $15 bottle of Kingston Black though. Hmm...

auerbrau (3146) - Peace Dale, Rhode Island, USA - NOV 6, 2011
22oz Bottle, poured at CiderDays 2011. A nice sweetness and a clean flavor palate. A touch of spiciness compliments a good balance of sugar and acid. Not overly complex, but quite palatable.
