ContemplateBeer (2097) - Louisville, Kentucky, USA - OCT 2, 2016
750 ml bottle split with Boo; from The Wine Rack. Aroma: Some woodsy vanilla/earthy notes; lighter tart lemon, musty hay. Appearance: Unfiltered, chunky gold with a bubbly white head that settles into a patchy skin. Flavor: Woodsy/earthy up front with a growing sharp lemon tartness; tart notes linger and are met by some musty hay towards the finish, which is mostly dry. Palate: Light body, slick texture, very soft carbonation, lingering finish. Overall: A pretty spunky cider with plenty of personality; a bit thin in the mouth. $6.49 for my bottle, so quite the value. crossovert (14135) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - SEP 3, 2016
750ml corked green bottle as "Bere Aran". It is a tart and funky cider, hugely medicinal yeast character. ClarkVV (6962) - Boston, Massachusetts, USA - AUG 25, 2016
Glass froom bottle at Bramling Cross on 8/19/16.hackobock (4073) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - AUG 8, 2016
Moderately hazy, pale, golden delicious-colored body shows plentiful carbonation and a smattering of white bubbles atop.
Great brett character in the nose, as there should be, with light funk, strong minerality and tons of apple skin. Sweetness is moderate, certainly not intensely juicy or anything and with strong drying on the finish. No alcohol or flaw.
In the mouth it’s very, very dry, with lime and band aid mixing with red apple flavor, lots of skin tannin and moderate tartness on the finish that is balanced somewhat by the sugars. The flavors are well-presented and clean, with light, engaging carbonation, but it’s just a shade over-attenuated leading to some light astringency problems.
September 23, 2015. Bottle at Katarina Ölcafé, vintage 2014. mike_77 (7274) - Breda, NETHERLANDS - JUN 1, 2016
Cloudy yellow with no head. Aroma is light tart and sweet red apples, some green apple skins, some lemon and barnyard notes, very light earthy and minerally. Taste is fruity, light tart and light sweet. Finish is light dry apple skins, minerals, sweet apple pulp notes, tart lemon and apple skins. Light to medium bodied, soft carbonation.
Hazy yellow colour. Aroma of wood and yeast. Tart at first becomes drier
Nice but not as apple intense as some of its contemporaries.

Opened at Seacoast Beer tasting. Purchased at Leary’s, the Amrsbury location. $12.04 ($11.99 + $0.50) for the 750 mL bottle. Aromas of horse blanket, sweat, cotton, Northen Spy apples, sourdough starter, DME, and chives. Tastes much the same with the addition of roasted beets, damp newspaper, and bird seed. Likeable. Damn, Spain really enjoys their ciders slightly tart and dry. BuckeyeBoy (8860) - Boise, Idaho, USA - JUL 19, 2015
750ml bottle pours out a slight hazy straw. Nose is nice apple pear spice and some sour notes. Taste is more of the crisp apple tartness some pear and a nice little spice.
