COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A lightly sparkling, crisply effervescent cider made with traditional English bittersweet cider apples sourced in the Malvern Hills of Worcestershire. Dark straw in appearance with a semi-brililant richness. The slight brettanomyces arome lends to an almost traditional farmhouse cider bouquet. Soft, subtle natural apple sweetness up front, brett and tannins mid palate move in to a slightly woody dry lingering finish.

brokensail (16347) - Dublin, California, USA - FEB 19, 2012
Clear golden yellow color with a ring of white foam around the glass. A light tartness and Brett funk to the aroma, quite nice actually. Some sweet apple notes and a touch of earthiness. The flavor has a hint of rubber, but otherwise is good. Pronounced Brett flavor and an interesting flavor of apple skins.

bhensonb (14890) - Woodland, California, USA - NOV 2, 2012
Can from the Davis Co-Op. Pours orange tinged gold with a few bubbles. Aroma is much more like fresh apples than most ciders. Its a little earthy - maybe thats the brett. Near med body. Flavor is a little earthy, very apple skin astringent. Quite dry. Overall a pretty tasty cider for pasteurized.

Sampled at Texas Beerfest. Pours a clear gold with a small white frothy head. The aroma is sweet fruit and apple. Thin mouthfeel with a sweet fruit and nice lingering dry finish. A good cider from Crispin.

Drake (13300) - Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA - JAN 24, 2011
Kinda surprised Im the first rater here. Cool. Clear very pale yellow pour. Medium fizzy white head fades instantly. Aroma of nice, tart dry apples with a faint bit of brett. The taste is similar. Apples, dry and tart, faintly sweet in the finish and with just a touch of brett lending an almost olive-like note. Medium bodied. Dry and champagne-like. Nice cider.

(16.9oz can, courtesy of Swalden28) Pours a clear yellow body with a spare white head that quickly diminishes. Aroma of apple, florals, and earth. Flavor of apple, subtle butter, and wood with a somewhat dry finish.

crossovert (12255) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - OCT 7, 2014
500ml can. Pours a nice amber color, fizzy head htat quickly dissipates. The smell is sweet apple, cidre vinegar, apple skin, some vanilla. Flavor is is sweet and like unfermented cidre upfront but the finish is crisp and dry. Nice fizzy carbonation, some vinous notes, not much yeast character. Decent cider.

"when youre in the mood for fruit, but not really. in the mood for champagne, but not really. in the mood for a light white wine, but with carbonation. light apple, slightly musky, light and refreshing. tart and ever so slightly sweet. nice on a hot summer night."
