Scopey (12007) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAR 6, 2016
Straight from the wooden barrel, poured by Mr Roger Wilkins himself. It pours bright hazy green-gold. The aroma is earthy, rustic, bitter- sweet, tangy fruity action, tannins, farmyard, funky brett, white grape and apple skin. The taste is bitter - sweet, earthy, rustic, barnyard, sweet apple pie, apple skin, tangy fruits, tannins, wood, leather, hay, dull florals and a touch of spice to round things off. Even though this is medium, the finish ends up pretty dry. Alcohol is entirely hidden. As with the dry version the drinkability and subtle complexity is breathtaking. Balanced and crushable. Absolutely Grade-A cider.

caesar (6486) - Bunnik/Utrecht, NETHERLANDS - DEC 7, 2015
Jar from the brewery, brought by a friend. He didn’t know which it was exactly, but it was not overly sweet, but certainly not dry. I suspect it’s somewhere in between and as it also is the most rated version, I’ll put my rating under this entry. Hazy golden color, virtually no head. Lovely aroma of sweet apple with funky notes, slight farmhouse, bit spicy even. Soft sweet in taste, bit funkiness. I’d love to try more of these kinds of farmhouse ciders instead of the dry and sparkling rubbish macro cideries make.

jercraigs (9681) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 4, 2015
2015-09-20. Hazy yellow body, near headless. Aroma is a bit funky, dry earthy apple and some funky sweaty notes. Flavour is sweet and lightly fruit up front but then finishes bone dry. Fruity up front then an almost chalky earthy finish. Pleasant fruity apple at the core, with strong sharp dry apple character in the finish. Average bodied palate, soft to low carbonation. I kind of like it but it’s a bit intense at this point in the evening. On cask at The Apple as "Wilkins Medium Dry", Bristol, UK.

Straight from the barrell on the cider farm. This was free cider, aroma is heavy, tastes of barnyard and apples, best cider I’ve had so far, with the best cider experience on the farm

MesandSim (7117) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - JAN 29, 2011
A Sim rate (bag in a box at the Grosvenor...*shudder* south of the river): 9 out of 10 anarchists said their mums preferred it. And I must agree. Sweet (but not too sweet) green apple aromai & flavour. Tart green apple finish. It’s a granny smith or a tasty Braeburn. Brown sugar and lemon/lime bitterness in the finish. Really enjoyed it.
