3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Tasted many times over the past couple of years, this is one of my favorite ciders. This bottle came from Midtown. Pours hazy dark yellow with no head. The nose is more sour apple than anything else, but there is a bit of tart lemon and it definitely has some funky yeast to it. The flavor is the same, very dry with some tannic structure, green apple, tart lemon, with a ton of funky barnyard and cheesy yeast. The body is light with a bit of carbonation and a long funky tart apple finish.
Aroma is apple juice and slight vinegar. The flavor is apples, fruit, a hint of vinegar and a tart/sweet//slightly acidic/astringent finish. Sigmund (8032) - Tau, NORWAY - SEP 21, 2017

MrTipple (7004) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - JAN 2, 2017
Nose: tangy woody apple cider vinegar (lvl-9)-pungency
Attack: virtually flat CO2, very subtle tingly, sour-acidic impression
Mid-palate: (lvl-2-sweetness), huge wet woodiness, apple cider vinegar, big puckery sour pukey funk, subtle green apple
Finish: tart dryish, lingering woody apple juice exhale
Summary: This one is too aggressive pukey sour and is lacking in firm crispness in the entry. Too much vinegar and not enough apple coming through.
Very fruity, funky flavours, some barnyard, zesty apple. Slightly hazy, pale gold, hardly any head. Light bigger. Dry, funky apples continue, apple tart, soft carbonation, medium bodied, dry, bitter, tarty finish. A dry apple wine, interesting and complex. Bottle at Sardine, Hoxton.

Taste is slightly sour-ish funky, apple cores, hay, minerals, mild brett, sour grass, apple peel, oak, dry apples, hints of mild vinegar.
