3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle sampled at the Carolina tasting, thanks Todd. This one was served before the other one I drank was. Light yellow in color. Smell is some hunts of apple juice and wood flavors. Taste was refreshing and not too sweet like the other cider. Not a bad offering, but I will stick with beer, not cider.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
2004. Hazy gold, no head, a few chunks. Aroma of musty sour apple skins, apple juice, and a densely branched portion of an apple tree. Flavor goes sweet then sour then sweet again. Same apple skins and juice, subtle honey, cinnamon, leaves. Medium body yet weighty on the palate with just enough carbonation. Very drinkable, nice brew.

3.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 14/20
2004 bottle. Ive had this one for about two years. Pours a golden orange, no signs of much head. Carbonation pretty much gone. The nose is still sharp, quite citric, with some acidic sourness. Definitely a 3 year old bottle as the taste had extremely mellowed out . A lot of orange peel and fruits, but no semblances of carbonation kind of killed it somewhat. Aftertaste was kid of funked out as well. This one was probably better a year earlier.

3.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: JAN 20, 2009 2003. Pours without much head and lots of bubbles clinging to the sides. Aroma is really light apple and if you didnt know it was cider you wouldn’t even notice the apple. Taste is sweet apple sauce with some cinnamon. Dry and sweet at the same time. Not bad.

2005. my first cider. pours an orange color with a small, quickly diminishing, white head. aroma is similar to gueuze. not really like apple juice. more like champagne. light apple flavor but more like a gueuze. light funky earthy aftertaste.

4.7 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 20/20
Pours an exceptionally effervescent and hazy peach amber color. The carbonation and the pour builds a two inch head of fizzy white foam. This leaves a smattering of bubbly lacing that slides back down into the glass. The aroma is bold and full of fresh tart apple.
Mmmm... tart and tangy apple, a little bit spicy. Fresh and juicy flavor. A little bit of white wine like an Asti Spumante is in there too. The finish is sharper and pungeant - not unlike a good saison. Medium body, excellent carbonation. Spice, dried apple slices, and a lemony tartness linger in the aftertaste.
