Draft at Portsmouth Book and Bar. Pours apple colored with no head. Nice, fresh Apple notes on the nose and tongue. Tends more to the dry side which I quite like. Finished clean. Solid! snoworsummer (6071) - baltimore, Maryland, USA - NOV 26, 2016

Tap at cidery. Pours slightly hazy straw yellow. Aroma is apples, pears, floral notes, and faint honey. Flavor is juicy apple notes, soft sweetness, light wildflower notes, and a dry, faintly tart finish. Light body. johnnnniee (4408) - Bedford, New Hampshire, USA - AUG 8, 2016
Bottle from Bert’s
Pours a slightly hazy deep yellow golden with a minimal white head that dissipates quickly. Apple and brown sugar on the nose with a faint spice I can’t pin down and a hint of sulfur. Sweet apple flavor with enough tannic complexity to keep it from being boring. Feels a little like raw sugar in the flavor like this was heavily back sweetened, and there is a touch of sulfur in the flavor. Better than I can make, and pretty tasty. thepatrickman (1502) - Lewes, East Sussex, ENGLAND - MAY 12, 2016
Bottle on Mother’s Day. There’s a lot of promise in this cider -- it smelled and tasted clean and fruity, without any artificial aromas at all. But it was also the biggest bottle bomb I have ever encountered. Right after I opened it a giant geyser of foamy cider came out the top, covering the kitchen sink, walls, floor, and stove. I’d say about 80% of the bottle shot out of it -- it was that overcarbonated! I’ll try this again, but probably only on tap, for safety reasons.

Bottle purchased at Craft Beer Cellar, Portsmouth. Active carbonation level in a hazy gold color cider. Aroma is void of any sugar. It’s like apple skins and apple pulp.
This could be the first cider I have ever sampled without the smell or flavor of any sugar. Very natural, pure pressed Apple. It’s like drinking baked apples (without any spice) just pure Apple. Interesting to try a cider without any preservatives at all. Very fresh and clean tasting. Well worth a try.
