2014 vintage bottle from Craft Brewed. Pours a clearish golden straw with 2 fingers of fine foam that lingers then dissipates. Aromas of hay, horseblanket, Brie rind, prosciutto, faint smoke, dried apple, umami, cobwebs. Fantastically complex. A symphony of aromas as it warms. Champagne-like carbonation on the palate. Dry and funky with a nice lingering farmy, dried apple character thoughout. Musty. Just stellar.

Really a wonderful cider, but much different than American ciders. The flavor is akin to brie and dried apples. It's definitely funky and hits the nose. It's definitely like drinking a dank and moldy cheese with a piece of fresh fruit. Can't recommend this one enough. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottle. Light golden color. Very good aroma of slightly dried apples. Taste: dried apples, apple pie, light sweetness, well balanced.

I missed sharing this at the last RBAG and a month later, I just couldn’t imagine sitting on this for another 11 months, so out it came. Aroma is bright apple, light barnyard funk, and a hint of caramel. The taste is not as overwhelming apple as expecting with a bit of overripeness. The funk is muted as well, but still there and there’s a light lemony citrus. It’s a crystal clear amber with LOTS of tiny effervescence. This is fucking brilliant.

This is for a 2015 bottle I just purchased. Poured and looked like a cider. Almost smelled like a cider, a funky cider. Taste though..............tasted sweet with a not-so-subtle aftertaste of urine. I imagine this is what diabetic urine tasted like before the invention of insulin. That’s right, this cider tastes like sweetened piss. Do yourself a favor and, instead of buying this saccharine pee, read this article about all the things doctors in the 1800’s learned about tasting their patients’ urine. It’s a much less terrible way to spend your free time. https://www.washingtonpost.com/posteverythi
