COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Freewheeler is the product in our lineup most like a traditional European cider. This dry graff is a fermented blend of the Midwests best apples with just a touch of lightly hopped cane sorghum to add body and structure. It is light, crisp and despite being crafted from a blend of Haralson, Honeycrisp, Sweetango and Topaz apples, the apple notes are subtle and enjoyable. This product is never too sweet or filling...the perfect start to any night. Go ahead and be a freewheeler!

On tap in Minneapolis (MN)
A refreshing cider hit the spot near the end of a tasting flight. Getting a chance to see the can art I may have to pick up more. This beer holds up favorably to other Midwestern ciders and even some of the British versions. Dont debate more than a minute if you see it on the shelves or on draft.

Aroma / Appearance - A carbonated golden body shimmers and glows below a thin layer of head. Sweet dried apple chips filter upwards with a champagne like tartness.

Flavor / Palate - Apple slices, champagne, and honey refresh the tongue then the palate. The slow open unfolds to a dry crisp finish. A promising introduction to a new cidery makes me look forward to my next visit to Minnesota.

TheAlum (7137) - Aurora, Illinois, USA - MAR 10, 2015
Draft on tap at the cidery (Minneapolis, MN). Pours a pale golden hue, faint haze but near transparent straw harvest glow with bubbly cascades. A faint whitish ringer atop stays as a mellow skant ring, subtle lacing and retention. Aromas are a bit citric, cidery. Dry apple, touches of earth, fresh pressed apple and a touch of brut dry yeastiness. Initial is light, red fleshy apple with fresh pressed apple juice. A bit of brut yeasty life, gentle bubbly carbonation and earth. Fleshy red apple and dried out sweetness. Residual sugars seem well fermented, clean with a bit of a spritzy brut jab as we round the corner. Light, airy and quite crushable.. This cider remains bubbly, dry with a high drinkability. Never gets too sweet and ends up as a good cider worth sessioning. Tasty stuff.

badgerben (5046) - Blaine, Minnesota, USA - MAR 7, 2015
Pale golden color. Dry, tart apple aroma. Heavy on the apple skin. Slightly bitter flavor. Dry. Light tart. A bit of yeast. Medium body. Simple but tasty, and a refreshing change from the overly sweet crud.

nellycale (213) - Caledonia, Minnesota, USA - MAR 4, 2015
From 16 oz can. Just release today. Pours a clear light straw hue with a light head that dissipates fast. A lot of bubbling. Aroma of lemon, grass, sour apple, slight spice. Taste is tart, lemony and tart green apple. And some subtle red apple sweetness, but not really sweet at all. Very crisp on the palate and finish. Finishes dry but tart. Some lively acidity which is actually pleasing. Similar to a nice bubbly white wine that has some acidity. Really enjoyable! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

ginsbure (4) - - MAR 4, 2015 does not count
Great cider/beer hybrid. Its got a really clean, crisp bite to it. Great in warm weather. They did a great job of keeping it dry and its not overly sweet; its actually more like drinking an apple than other ciders out there.

Pour on tap, clear straw yellow pour with thin to no head, aroma brought green apple, grass, hints of lemon, some spice into a bit of honey, slight vanilla. Taste is a mix of apple, slight lemon, grass, hints of honey, vanilla, touch of sweet fruit, finishing dry, slightly sweet.

On tap. Pours a clear pale yellow with a bit of visible carbonation but no head whatsoever. Aroma has a nice sweet rich apple with a nice dry bite. Flavor starts with sweet apple that grows in to a dry finish with a touch of bitterness.
