3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Sampled in between sessions at The-Festval in Worcester, MA. 6%abv edition.
Mellow yellow, white wine sort of color. Just a touch of haze.
Husky, perry-ish florals, soapy scent.
Tastes is hay & core. White grapes. Mellow, minerally flesh, & soft tannins.
Solid acid, shy tartness, Just a peep of ugly alcohol. Moderate sulfites. Spritzy.
Not my favorite on the table that day. Needs a revisit.

Bottle shared by rschnake...thanks Rob! - Pours clear golden with a thin bubbly ring of white head. Nose is sweet apple skins, real pungent with a touch of baking spice. Taste is about the same, though the apples have a bit more bitterness to it. Sweet up front, with the bitterness coming through on the finish. Slick and medium bodied, with little carbonation.

Draft at Churchkey. Really a delicious cider, that tastes frighteningly just like apple juice. I dont think I actually buy that this is 10%, but I suppose its possible. Great sweet apple flesh, touches of tannic skin dryness. Yummy.
