I must like Rhubard, who knew, because this was an enjoyable Cider. Would love to try it again.
500 ml bottle poured into a brandy snifter. The cider is a bright hazy yellow with a white head that fizzes away quickly. Dry sweet tarts and apple skins. Dry tartness in the taste. Some fruity character in there as well. Dry and a little funky. Medium body and medium carbonation. wilnatp (719) - Minnesota, USA - MAR 25, 2017
Tap at Nomad for MNUFC game. Slight sour taste. Hints of apple. Okay but not a fav. fiery_1 (1349) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - DEC 27, 2016
650ml bottle @ Matt’s. Pours a cloudy pale straw colour. Nose is sweet pear with a tropical infliuence. Flavour is sweet rhubarb through and through even with a slight acidic tart finish. Wow, I’m impressed they captured that character here. Ferris (15890) - Burnaby, British Columbia, CANADA - DEC 27, 2016
Bottle - Sweet pear, lychee and tropical white fruits. Cloudy gold with a small white head. Tart and light acidic fruity notes. Rhubarb is a bit odd, it comes out much sweeter than expected and lots of pear. mcberko (18058) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - DEC 27, 2016
500mL bottle, pours a cloudy yellow with a small white head. Aroma is extremely juicy, with shitloads of oranges, rhubarbs and light citrus. Flavour is along the same lines, with an extremely juicy citrusy, orangey, rhubarb content. Very juicy, medium sweet, but doesn’t really strike me as a cider. Fun stuff though and for what it is, it’s very drinkable.

Cloudy and very pale. No head. Has rhubarb on the nose, with apple skins, and an almost pear-character. Has a nice juicy character, nice apple sweetness, and I like that rhubarb tartness in the finish. Very drinkable, this is a refreshing, balanced cider. Quality.

I love tart and rather dry ciders and this satisfies both very well! Great cider!

Bottle. Pours yellow gold with a fizzy disappearing head. Fruity apple base, moderate acidity, mild sweetness, and not a ton of residual sweetness. Solid. Brigadier (3695) - Chagrin Falls, Ohio, USA - JUN 28, 2015

Normally I would have gone for something more regional but the name of this alone caught my eye. A very unusual cider manages to capture not only the imagination but the palate. I would definitely be willing to check out this place if I ever make it out to Oregon.
Aroma / Appearance - A golden flat base shimmers with almost no head to speak of. A very dry cider sparkles with hints of sweetness and rhubarb although it does not overpower.
Flavor / Palate - Apple pie, honey, and chewy textures coat the palate with a sweet natured aspect. Rhubarb opens up although it does not take center stage on its own. By the end it manages to fall squarely in the middle of the pack while still carving its own niche.
Capped 500 from Made in Oregon. Pours translucent perry color with a transient white head. Aroma hints of rhubarb. Med body, nearly. Flavor is mouth twisting tart, moving clearly to rhubarb. It’s like rhubarb whatever with not a lot of sugar. Gotta admit it seems really tart/sour. Who’d have thought. Obviously some crazy folks who made it.
