4.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Very tart, some mineral, lightly sweet crisp and wonderful. Far more in the American craft cider mode than the English or French. Surprising complexity and a long finish off a single type of apple. Best un-blended cider I’ve had. Bought a Wickson tree for the yard after tasting this!

Light color, light aroma, intensely sour in flavor. Wood and green apple. Mouth puckering. Packs a punch in the mouth but joy much anywhere else.

4.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
UPDATED: DEC 11, 2014 crystal clear yellowish color, light carb.
very inviting floral aroma, some honey, though with the age on this bottle I suppose some of that could be oxidation.
There’s some lemon, no real alcohol. presents as tart, clean, hint of spicy/herbal character.
flavor follows nose with perhaps a bit more heft. It is quite tart, but the acidity is never obtrusive. Low alcohol flavor is clean, slight warming on the palate by mid bottle. Fairly fruity though not overly apple. Plenty of citrus, and touch of honey. Off-dry, and almost perfectly balanced. Low tannin, but plenty of structure here. Notable similarities with various off-dry white wines
Refreshing, medium light bodied, clean, crisp. Would drink again anytime - great stuff.
