Two Rivers Huckleberry Cider
Nice light fruity aroma more if apple than huckleberry. Clear peach color, no head retention. Slightly astringent tastes. More apple flavor than berry, but the aftertaste has good berry notes. A little too tart for the flavor, but good sweetness. Good level of carbonation, slightly creamy mouthfeel. I would drink this again, but not buy it.

Two Rivers Syrah Barrel Aged Cider
On tap @ Capitol Beer. Clear pale yellow colored cider with no foam to speak of. Interesting. A lot of tannic and off-dry red wine. Really get a nice vinous quality to it. Some banana, pear, and sweet apple. Dry and tart finish to it with a light carbonation. Just a touch heavy handed on the oak, but otherwise I think it works well.

Two Rivers Southern Hop Cider
Sorry I didnít get more info on this. On tap at Hot City Pizza for Sac Beer Week. Didnít get a pic - canít find anything easy on-line. I believe itís a southern hemisphere hopped cider. Light n color and body, juicy apple with a touch of farmhouse and dry yeast with a mix of lightly dank and tropical hops. I like the combo though itís a little light.

Two Rivers Huckleberry Cider
Bomber from Corti Bros. In strong light itís perry color, but in dimmer light thereís a slight rosť effect. Aroma is pretty much berry. Not super strong, but very present. It approaches med body for a cider, and the berry provides fruit and a touch of astringency. Apple is second fiddle. But itís reasonably dry, and very drinkable. Rather delicate in its way.

Two Rivers Pomegranate Cider
Bomber from The Davis Beer Shoppe. Pours bright rose with a transient pinkish head. Aroma is sort of like a berry jam. Body is not strong. Flavor is tart berry. Guess Iím not a pomegranate expert. I can believe it, but I canít grasp it. Anyway, sugary it definitely is not. Sort of a dessert thing that isnít sweet. Works for me.

Two Rivers Mango Cider
Tap at The Davis Beer Shoppe. Pours pale gold with a white head. Aroma is cider with a suggestion of other fruit. Near med body. Flavor is slightly dry, very slightly tart cider with a hint of some sort of fruit. Seems like something not quite ripe (not sweet). Could well be mango, but itís not crystal clear on that point. However, as a cider it really is a good drinker. Goes down something of a treat.
