Bottle of the 2008, shared with my wife. Pours a clear straw gold with a vigorous white head that deflates instantly. Soft lean apples on the nose, warm wood, a touch of straw, and a hint of acid. Medium bodied, sweet and lively at the start, nicely carbonated. Nice long tart apple sourness comes through on a long lived lingering finish. Really good.

TheAlum (7164) - Aurora, Illinois, USA - NOV 25, 2010
750 ml bottle (2008) courtesy of a TheEpeeist trade. Thanks, Chris! You’ve given me a nice cider rate and you’ve made the Mrs. Happy. Pours a light golden hue, light maybe a touch of haze. Light carbonated dancing life. Aromas are dry crisp apples, some champagne yeast, light dry with touches of apple juice, sparkling with a touch of tannic and wet oak. Mellow sweet with some light tartness. Initial is lighter bodied, gentle sweet crisp apples, faint honey, dry champagne and a touch of tartness. The dry backend, light prickly carbonation, and touch of tartness on the backend win me over. Lighter sweetness up front, lingers, honeycrisp apples, really nice tartness here, a true cider that feels natural, tart, dry and champagney. Light oak, faint vanilla. Very nice. Quite tart, grows on the palate, dry and honeycrisp. This is quite lovely

Cletus (6355) - Connecticut, USA - JUL 27, 2008
Unlike their other cider, this one comes in 750s. Pours yellow and fizzy. Smells of tarte apples, french oak, touches of cinnamon. Tastes of tarte dry apples with a peppery bite and a nice dry oakiness on the finish. Both of these ciders really impressed me.
