Bottle bought through Eden. Pours clear deep golden leaving some oily legs on the glass with a swirl. Smell is fruity and herbal with tart apples, basil, oregano, rosemary, minerals, lemon peal and alcohol. Taste is tiny sour, slightly bitter, fruity and herbal. Mouthfeel is dry, slightly tart, tiny astringent, boozy and medium bodied. Finish is sour and slightly bitter with tart apples, savoury bitter green herbs, hay, minerals, lemon peal and alcohol. Very dry and very strong. Kinda hard to muster. Tried it with lime like it was recommended on the bottle which really managed to bring the herbs, fruit and alcohol together. Solid, but not what you’d expect. hackobock (4045) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - AUG 17, 2016

Clear golden with no head Aroma is very herbal and fruity with earthy notes, anise, basil, oregano, juicy apple pulp, tart apple skins. Taste is earthy herbal, tart fruity with a dry herbal finish, some licorice notes, tart apple skins. Light to medium bodied, oily texture, dry, flat.
Intriguing aroma but too herbal and dry, not what I prefer in a ice cider.
A: Clear golden coloured, no head. N: Apple, basil, thyme T: Grapes, cedar, loads of herbs... O: Far to dry for me. And to much herbs.... rlgk (18850) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - AUG 17, 2016

Bottle shared with friends. Pours a deep golden body with no lace. Nose is very unique - notes of basil, herbs, pesto and light bitter apple skins. Mouthfeel is medium to full bodied with notes of apple skins, flowers, soft spice, basil, honey and a delicate perfume character. Really unique cider - and at 16% abv, essentially no cloying boozy character. czar (9172) - Québec, Quebec, CANADA - FEB 7, 2016

On-site @ Eden:
Light yellow. A little sediment. Smells like a salad. Lots of herbs. Clover, pepper, intense. Juniper berry, honey, light Apple. This has a lot of flavor. It’s actually unique and very good I’m a fan.

Bottle at James’ for cider and Big Alice night. Pours a clear gold. Herbs and soft apple on the nose. Tastes of Italian herbs, possibly marjoram, basil, thyme. Somewhat odd, but tasty with some weirdness going on. Tart and tangy, herbal. Strange but tasty. jtclockwork (16725) - , New Jersey, USA - OCT 21, 2015
