ctipping (1914) - Florida, USA - MAR 31, 2017
Bottle at Redlight. Hazy golden. Smells of green apples, funky, very acidic. A bit of acetic acid. Tastes of sour apples up front. Not even granny smith. Very sour apples. Vinegar sourness throughout. Not my favorite profile. Tingly sour apple flavor in the finish. Flat, of course. Fascinating but not something I’d really go for again.

Ferris (15001) - Burnaby, British Columbia, CANADA - SEP 24, 2016
Bottle - Funky, lemon and some nice apple. Clear hay and no head. Horse blanket, light lemon and some nice acidity. Apple is there, but not in your face and the sweetness comes out in the long finish. Nice.

Headbanger (3989) - Aurora, Illinois, USA - FEB 27, 2016
750ml bottle 2/27/15 (Courtesy of TerryR)-Pours a clear light golden with no head. Aroma of apple and vinegar. Taste of the same with a big tartness on the back end. This light bodied beverage is still tasty and rather fulfilling.
