I love the level of sweetness of this cider - quite dry. I didn’t find the "spice" very noticeable, thank goodness. There are better craft ciders out there but usually at twice the price or more. Wanderlust is well worth a try.

Bottle @ home, picked up at Supermarket Foco. Pours a super light, just slightly tinged yellow appearance with no head. The aroma has apple sauce, lightly burnt wood, cinnamon, and nutmeg. Fairly dry but also kind of boozy. Bland red apple flavor with a little bit of spice. Very juicy. Boring but drinkable.

Danyel (1074) - Colorado, USA - OCT 23, 2014
Bottle. Pours very light, clear yellow with white head. Aroma is very apple, yeasty, very fruity. Taste is dry, tart, fresh apples, light, crisp, lots of carbonation. Overall, okay- just needs a bit more flavor.,

A semi dry cider, once agian a cidery throwing ginger in there which in this one is pretty spicy giving it a dryer note.

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.

pours with a notable lack of brilliance. not cloudy per se, but far from bright. hmm. the aroma is fairly mundane. no harshness, hints of fruitiness, faint alcohol perfume. very slight citrus - lemon - tartness, occasional mineral notes. nothing "off" but nothing special. some low quinine notes to the bitterness, fairly one-note with a restrained apple skin character, low fruitiness, low sweetness that is uninteresting. would like a floral note, honey, musty, fruity note, something - anything really to make this more interesting. significant astringency but somehow it’s still lacking structure. I think it’s the mineral notes that are getting in the way. wouldn’t turn down a free one but wouldn’t seek this one out again.

Like most ciders it pours clear yellow without head. At least there’s some hue to the color (redlike). Smell like good natural apple without added sweetner. Taste good.

Golden pour no head. Apples, spice, and soda. Off dry finish. Snooze fest for sure.

574deadzone (1090) - North Central, Indiana, USA - OCT 1, 2013
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.

ryecatcher (822) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - APR 14, 2013
Bottle. Pours a light golden color, no head, decent carbonation. Nose is ’apple-y’, mouth is light and kinda fruity, with a Copenhagen snuff-like back end that wasn’t awful, but it’s not something I normally look for in a beverage. Average cider in most ways.

Bottle from TWM McLean - reviewing from notes - I was disappointed in this one, maybe it had aged for too long, but it just tasted like metallic water. All the applelike qualities have faded from the brew. I’m hoping it was just an old bottle, ciders tend not to age well.
