COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Spur & Vine puts a Northwest twist on our classic American Hard Cider. Starting with the same apples and yeast as The Original, a generous amount of Galaxy hops were added to the cider during cold conditioning. Since no heat is applied to the hops, the cider takes on flavors and aromas of peach, melon, and honeysuckle, but with none of the traditional hop bitterness. Spur & Vine is best served straight up to allow the complexities of this cider to shine.

Sample at AK BW fest 2016. Clear golden yellow color. Aroma of dusty apple. Taste starts sweet, then lightly dusty fruit. OK.

Bottle from Fred Meyer, Seattle
Pale yellow color, almost no head. Very nice aroma, Chardonnay and New World Gewurztraminer. Off dry mouthfeel, but smooth; light cider flavor, some white wine character, fruity, not bitter.
Excellent idea.

Second review of this cider! It was okay, but it doesnt come in a can at all. No meat scent, though. Apple skin, fruity esters, and some yeast. A bit of sugar, floral hops, and plenty of chemical goodness! Ill drink it.

Oakes (15820) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - AUG 29, 2014
Bright bronze colour, fresh berryish hop aroma. The palate is less cohesive, with the hops and apple both clashing and being cohesive...not sure what to make of this.

mcberko (14979) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JAN 28, 2015
22 oz. bottle, pours a clear pale blonde with a tiny head. Nose brings out lots of dry hops upfront that are rather earthy and BO-like, with light apples in back. Flavour is quite pleasant, with a good balance of dry hops and medium sweet apples. The dry hopping is done well and tastes better than it smells. Good stuff.

bhensonb (14316) - Woodland, California, USA - NOV 1, 2013
Bottle from a local Raleys supermarket. Pours sort of golden perry with some bubbles on top. Aroma is melon/cider with discernible peach. Gotta love Galaxy. Near med body. Hardly any carb. Flavor is melon/peach. Quite smooth and nice. A little cider flavor comes along with time.

Ferris (13170) - Burnaby, British Columbia, CANADA - FEB 14, 2014
Bottle - Apples, some vegetative herbs and some sweetness. Clear gold with no head. Sweet apples, peach, some light tartness and a nice finish. Although nice, I dont get the hops unless it is herbal notes in the nose.

Draught at GABBF. Pours clear yellow with a small, frothy white head, short retention with spare lacing. Aroma is apple, light spices. Flavor is tart apples, light honey notes and a dry finish. Light body and carbonation.

Tap - Sweet Apple and hoppy nose. Flavor is a touch tart and funky with this combo, but it works. Light body and color.

On tap at Happy Gnome. Pours a clear yellowish gold with a white head that dissipates completely. Aroma has dry apples with a bit of grassy hops and a touch of acid. Flavor has more sweet aple with a dryness in the finish and hints of acid and grass.
