I found this cider to be exception in every way. It had tremendous balance, lovely flavors, and a long finish. I put this at the top of my domestic cider list. I was sad when the bottle was empty. Luckily for me I will be carrying the cider in my store very soon. The only cider that I have enjoyed more is the stuff from Eric Bordelet.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle shared at 14th Richmond gathering by maniac. Pours sparkling gold with no head; flat. Aroma is ginger, apple, and straw. Flavor is green apple, ginger, and biscuit. Light body and carbonation, low warmth, and sweet texture with a dry finish. The ginger seems to detract a bit from the apple character.
