UPDATED: NOV 15, 2013 Bottle. Pours a slightly cloudy, pale golden color. No head, soft carbonation. Aroma is mild with tart apple, and a little citrus and earthy notes. Flavor is moderately intense, and balance with sweet and tart apples, but leans slightly tart. Background notes of citrus. Just enough complexity to make this enjoyable and interesting. Finishes mostly tart, but not overdone. Really nice cider.

At Epic Beer Fest 2013. Hazy light golden, no head. Nose is crisp with exotic apple tones, and a bit of Belgian witte esters on the nose. Flavor is sweet and crisp with plenty of apple flavors, a bit of Belgian wheat crispness, and some delectable citrusy tones. Really pleasant.

PorterPounder (5600) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - JUL 3, 2013
Tallahassee, Fl - New Leaf Market - 12 oz bottle. Thick-looking medium golden murky pour with no head. Aroma has some yeasty accents with a hint of floral accents. Flavor is very unique for a cider with some candied apple accents, some coriander notes, a bit of yeastiness in the back ground and just a touch of Granny Smith sourness. nice spritz to the mouthfeel. Not bad.

Aurelius (4236) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - JUL 2, 2013
Floral, almost lemony aroma with some light musk. OK label, squat bottle, cloudy opalescent cider. Citrus overtones dominate the cider, sweet, moderately astringent. Every now and again, there was the faintest vinegar note. Light astringency in the sweet finishs. Definitely a food pairing - probably damn good marinade. ABC Liquors, Bull Run.

AirForceHops (3298) - Epping, New Hampshire, USA - JUN 30, 2013
12 oz. bottle purchased @ Top Shelf Brews, Hampton, NH. Hazy yellow gold color. Nose has a wisp of yeast with tart apples. The yeast and orange peel does add a Belgian white feel to this cider. The finish is clean, crisp apple as you would expect. As far as Woodchuck goes I still like the fall cider better then this.

Bottle; poured a dull gold color with a white head. Aroma of apples and Belgian spice; almost apple pie like. Would have liked the Belgian white element a bit further, but it was still a nice beer. Crisp apple with traces of a wit. Easy to drink.
