Whitewood Old Fangled Heirloom Blend
Glowing straw. Lightly tart apple, green apple, refreshing. The tart apple lingers but isn’t overpowering. Very crisp. Nice.

Whitewood Gibbs Farm Dry Heirloom Cider
Draft at Bottleworks.

Clean light-toned pour. Lovely aroma of apple essence without the sticky sweetness. The flavor follows. Beautiful clean apple, semi-dry to dry with just hints of sweet in the later part of the palate, crisp and not too tart, without any of the flaws that one finds in so many ciders. Really first rate stuff, made from an excellent blend of apples. A lovely introduction to the cidery for me. One of the better ciders I’ve ever had.

Whitewood Barrel Aged Gravenstein
Draft at Holy Mountain, a bit like a white wine or something with the nice tartness and crispness and low sweetness. A bit spicy, very good.

Whitewood Barrel Aged Gravenstein
On tap at Holy Mountain. Clearish pale yellow. Like a pinot gris. Dry green apples, oak, and mild cinnamon/vanilla. Super-crisp. Really flavorful. A tad shallow? Really good though.

Whitewood Red Cap NW Dry Session Cider
On tap at Holy Mountain. Pours a hazed and faintly milky looking gold with a medium sized white head. Soft sweetness on the nose, fresh apple juice. Medium bodied, lightly sweet, soft tartness, a bit of acidity. Slow juice on the finish. Very pretty.

Golden light yellow in color, Nice crisp flavor and comes off dry but I was impressed. Hell sitting with the brewer himself who wouldn’t be.

Tap at Holy Mountain. Pretty yellow, soft with a pillowy white foam. Crisp, sweet fresh fall apple aroma. Great clean apple flavor, nothing else here. Lovely, very tasty, medium dry natural mild sweetness. Lovely!

Whitewood Barrel Aged Gravenstein
Draft at Holy Mountain. Bright, champagne-like white-gold, thick white head. Sugary apple aroma, maybe a touch of vanilla. Quite dry, but great full flavor. Sweet, but sparkling champagne body balances out. Some banana, a little vanilla-oak, dry-sweet. My kind of cider. Tasty!

Blond color. Light apple and glue aroma. Very dry mouthfeel; not much flavor.
Simple cider.

Whitewood Northland Traditional
Draught. Pours a clear golden color with no head on it at all. Nose is sweet and rather apply, and reminds me a lot of apple juice. Taste, on the other hand, is actually quite dry and not at all sweet. Feel is very bubbly, and reminds me of sparkling apple cider. Fairly little apple in the taste, methinks.

Whitewood Old Fangled Heirloom Blend
Pours an effervescent light gold which stills quite quickly, leaving a scarce collection of bubbles clinging to the glasses’ interior. Aroma rides the line between apple flesh and baby powder, in what some describe as a ’mousey’ way. First sip puckers the palate a bit, as this is both dry and tart. Finishes clean and the upfront has interesting notes of watermelon, vanilla, and lemonade. Definitely a random, thoughtful cider.. still seems to be lacking focus and could improve with a culling of the apple varieties, I’d imagine. Recommended for its interesting intensity but probably my least favorite of the initial three flavors.

Whitewood South Sounder
Nice vibrant golden pour, thinnest lacing occurs. Russet-like aroma here, earthy and appley while maintaing a certain dryness. Super-dry and tannic indeed. Grassy tart flavor exists without any sweetness yet the cider maintains a pretty substantial body. Drinkable despite its complexity. This could use one more note of actual fruit, but its pretty flawless otherwise.

Whitewood Northland Traditional
Clear golden pour, vibrant nose of wine tannins and apple brandy. Perfect carbonation level, first sip is appley but not overly so. Finishes dry with a touch of vanilla. Extremely drinkable, surprisingly so for something packaged so finely in a spiffy 750ml. Robust boozy apple is present, which may limit drinkability for the cider noob. This, however, is a cider nerd’s session beverage. Highly recommended especially for its attention to detail and concise delivery.
