Poured draught at Gingerman NYC. Pours slightly cloudy without much head, medium carbonation. Aroma of tart apple and straw. Smells like an orchard! Tast is beautiful, full bodied, balanced: tart apple with the slightest bit of honey. Really a fantastic cider.

DeputyAndy (636) - Ambler, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 26, 2012
Bottle with Ann. Pours a fizzy pale gold with lots of short lived head. Aroma has a lot of horsey brett character. Taste is a great balance of sweet apple flavors and a funky brett influence. Very carbonated, couldn’t drink more than one. Really good.

DrGonzo (625) - Somerville, Massachusetts, USA - JUL 4, 2004
2001 edition. Pours a slightly hazy golden orange, with furious carbonation and a rapidly dissipating white head. Aroma is mostly apples, with sourness and wood. Taste is not surprisingly mostly apple, relatively little tartness, maybe best compared to a macintosh, has a gueuze-like feel, with some of the barnyard components, mildly acidic, and this baffling salty/ smoked bacon flavor near the finish, then drying. I’ve had very little cider tasting experience, so I recognize this as good but can’t compare it to others of this caliber. Very good overall.

BuckeyeSammy (617) - Palo Alto, Ohio, USA - MAR 4, 2008
UPDATED: MAR 8, 2008 Great cider, carbonated like a chanpiegne. Sharp on the tounge at first taste, interestng on your palate. Well balanced. Airy, Flavor of sour apples. This cider makes origional sin its bitch. Would live to get another bottle. Drank at L’Express in lower manhattan.

jeffin7 (613) - Silver Spring, Maryland, USA - NOV 11, 2004
Pours an orange tan with a huge head that fades quickly. Aroma of tart and sweet apples, and a hint of vinegar. Flavor is initially a nice tart apple. The finish was a bit off and had an almost cloriseptic like flavor. Very good up until the finish.

Niksko (609) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - MAY 22, 2014
Pours a light golden with some very bubbly, effervescent white head. Nose is really funky and musty. Flavor is much the same, with some apple tartness, some yeasty notes. Why can’t all cider be this complex and intersting?

joebrew (608) - Farewell Minny; Hello Puyallup, Washington, USA - OCT 6, 2007
2000 vintage from a 1.5ml bottle. Pours a nice hazy golden. Very sweet apple on the nose almost like processed applesauce. Very carbonated mouthfeel with the sweet red apple coming through prominantly. This might have been a little over the hill, and I will try a more current vintage to re-rate if need be.

Bottle from Red, Wine, and Brew somewhere up near Eastlake, OH.
I think I also tried one of these at a tasting courtesy of Darren, but not sure if it was the same one or not.
This is the best cider I’ve had to date. Pours with a lively champagne-like carbonation that instantly creates a large white head. Aroma is dry with notes of sour apple and yeast. Flavor is a nice combination of sour and sweet apples. Finishes dry. Super easy to drink.

emerica56 (600) - Bristol, Rhode Island, USA - JAN 9, 2008
After pouring it into a pilsner glass it fizzed right up then faded just as quick. It has cheese and apple on the nose with some funk. the flavor is about the same green apple finish with cheese and vanilla in the begining. Over all it is a nice any time drink.

Alcoholist (570) - Peoria, Illinois, USA - MAY 24, 2004
Wow, c’est encridible! This is an apple cider that others should strive to emulate. Apples, wood, barnyard, flowers and more apples, with just the right amount of sweetness to pull the flavour through and some peel in the finish to dry it off.
