COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This Hard cider comes from a 5 acre stand of large Baldwin trees grown at the Keown Orchards in Sutton, Massachusetts. The Keown family has treasured these trees for four generations. Leomi Baldwin developed this variety in the 1790’s in Wilmington, Massachusetts. Once popular, now rare, Baldwins have long been locally prized for the making of hard cider.

MicroGrog (303) - FT: Stale Polotmavý in Queens, New York, USA - SEP 18, 2012
UPDATED: OCT 19, 2012 Re-rate: Previous score of 2.8. This year’s batch in a tall wine glass. Nose is briny & tannic & woodsy. Taste is sort of a mash of savory earthy qualities. Shrooms, wet foliage, iron, apple cores, salt. Acid is pretty big, but the finish delivers a lingering tartness. Dainty carbonation. Not quite awesome, but much, much better then I remember. --- Sampled at a very sparsely attended tasting at 67 Wine & Spirits during the end of Cider Week ’11. Table wine color/consistency. Golden. Very oaky, slightly buttery, veggie scent. Taste is stemmy & oaky. Watered down savignon blanc. Very leafy. Little bit of plastic. Moderately drying & tannic to start. Low acidity. Decently tart though. Faintly sour. Again, watery. Not my favorite. Seems that I’m finding I don’t quite enjoy straight, unblended ciders much. Always seem a bit empty to me. /shrug

750 mL bottle at home. Light clear yellow appearance while still darker than many other ciders. Cidery aroma that’s fairly strong with some alcohol in the nose. Pretty strong flavor that’s quite dry. Fairly alcoholic finish.

The appearance is a clear gold, small white head. The aroma is dry, apple, boozy. The flavor is apple, a little drying. The finish is apple, and sour. Decent.

zdk9 (183) - Texas, USA - NOV 5, 2010
(75cl bottle thanks to bu11zeye) Weaker aroma- musky. Color of piss. Tastes slight green apple, some bitterness, almost hops (?). Not really a good combination of flavors and while it’s kind of complex, not all that good.

j12601 (6584) - Poughkeepsie, New York, USA - OCT 31, 2010
Bottle that I brought to Joe’s ridiculous going away party tasting. Pours a fairly clear golden yellow. Vinous spicy citrus, wine and vanilla on the nose. More vanilla and apples in the body. Spicy and tangy.

(75cl bottle thanks to bu11zeye) clear bright yellow with a ring of fine white bubbles. Nose of alcohol, wood, fermented apple juice. Taste of champagne-like yeast, apple, tart and fermented, right amount of sweetness. Soft and a bit under-carbonated with a light body.
