[Bottle, I believe from a Cellar’s Tasting] Pours cloudy golden with dark particles floating about and a good white head. Tart apple aroma and taste with a good amount of spice. A little thin. Decent finish. A decent cider, definitely didn’t blow me away.

What a great cider. Pours with a fizzy, medium-sized white head. Aroma of apples fresh off the tree and a lightly tart barnyard funk. Moderately sweet natural apple flavor perfectly paired with a nice acidic tartness. Smooth, tasty and refreshing. Dry and slightly tart finish.

2011 vintage. Explodes out of the bottle - get out your mop. Otherwise, pours clear and gold with a gigantic white head that dissipates immediately. Aroma is funky sharp barnyard, seltzer water, and faint lemony vinegar. Taste is sweet apples fading to a oaky brettanomyces medicinal-like finish.

mcbackus (758) - Merritt Island, Florida, USA - MAY 22, 2008
bottle pours a hazzy golden apple juice colour with a lasting bubbly white head. aroma is a musty apple pulp aroma, some bright tart areas and some sweeter fresh pressed apple juice underneath, honey and some perfumy notes. the flavour is very tart and fades in to a lazy apple flavour that is not to powerful, some yeast and some sweetness finds its way in somewhere. finishes quick and dry with some must character. not overly impressed but very drinkable.

UPDATED: DEC 15, 2006 Nice cider with a slight hazy gold-bronze color and with a fine livelyness. Aroma is very much barnyard like, it has a smooth sweetness in the nose with little hints of cane sugar, cinnamon, cardemom and sweet, slight oxidized apples. The taste is fruity, smooth and complex. It is fine-fizzy in the mouth, and the honeyed sweetness works well with the soft sourness of the apples and the soft spice of the nutmeg like spiceyness. Thanks a lot Alex (Fiulijn) for sending me this one. The traject was Switserland to Italy, from Italy to Sweden, then Sweden Denmark, and from Denmark with Jeppe to Belgium. Thanks !

A nice surprise wasn’t sure if I was going to like this Cider, but it was pretty good. Apple, sweet, and I think some smoke flavors. Finishes clean and crisp.

2012, 375 ml into a tulip. Crystal clear light amber with tons of rising carbonation. Nose is blue cheese. Musky, funky, and a little smoked meats. Light apples but the nose rivals some lambic in the level of musk. Taste is musk, hay, and and some meat. Savory transforms to sweet aged apples with a lingering oaky/oxidation earthiness. Dry and bubbly. Takes a bit to get used to the musk but once you do it’s actually quite good and very unique.

2007 bottle. Bottle exploded as I opend this one..wow real barnyard/horseblanket nose. I can’t pick up any apple in the nose. Pale blond frothy loose head. Dry, little sweet..odd flavor on the finish....plastic....this is interesting?

2005 vintage: I would like to say firstly that my experience with ciders is extremely limited, consisting of Woodchuck, Johnny Appleseed and a couple others I can’t remember. With that being said, this is the best cider I have yet to come across. Pours out visibly effervescent clear gold with a fizzy head, reducing to nothing within seconds. The nose is musty, cheesy, and tart green apples with some light acetic acid (vinegar). The flavour is not as tart as the aroma suggests and the finish is all green apples, though the finish is very short. The finish is also characterized by its dryness and a breif sweet lingering. Suggestions of cinnimon are striking me in the mid-palate profile, as well as sweet vanilla custard? I expected more barnyard funk and leather judging by the aroma, but such flavours were absent. Very enjoyable!

750 ml bottle. Vintage 2011. 7/29/13. Highly pressurized. Mind the cork and cage. Pours a light straw color with incredibly active, rolling carbonation; a thick whitehead that was very fast to fade. Aroma is apple, vinegar, farmyard, funk, grass, some wood, some spice. Taste is dry, vinous, fruity, fresh, refreshing; apple, pear, white wine vinegar, wood (oak), grass; finish is subtle bitterness of apple peel and white grape skins. Taste is reminiscent of breathing in a spring afternoon atop a grassy hill. Light-medium bodied. Mouth feel is crisp and thin. Carbonation is very high and lively. No lacing. This is really something. Highly enjoyable.
