500 ml. bottled 10-22-2014 and indicating 7.5% abv. Clear golden-amber with a bit of sparkling activity supporting a lasting spit of bubbles. Aroma is apples with a hint of vanilla. Tastes of tart crab apple and maybe a hint of oak if I try real hard. Light bodied, dry and astringent. thedm (6282) - Fort Wayne, Indiana, USA - OCT 14, 2016
This bottled Cider from a beer bar poured a very small sized head of foamy finely sized white colored bubbles that were quickly diminishing and left behind a softly carbonated transparent golden yellow orange colored body and a poor lacing. The mild aroma was red apple. The crisp mouth feel was tingly at the start and at the finish. The nice flavor contained notes of golden apple red apple and green apple. A decent one that I would consider drinking again. rumproasts (5478) - Grand Rapids, Michigan, USA - SEP 13, 2016
bottle. Golden with small head. Tart apple. As you’d expect from the name, it’s very dry and acidic. Like the Wickson, I’d have a hard time drinking more than a single glass of this.

On tap at PIB 2016, pours a clear blonde with almost no head. Aroma brings out crisp green apple, not much notice of the oak. Flavour is dry and perhaps brings out more of the oak, with a little perfume and green apple. Bone dry, with zero residual sweetness. Finishes very floral. Lacking complexity but it’s clean.

Pours a nice golden color with no head. Smell is oaky, dry apple. Taste is quite dry. Apple and oak are evident. Like an apple champagne with light to medium carbonation. This is the driest cider I’ve ever had. Tanniny like effect on the mouth and dry and nice. Drinkable as it never gets cloying as you drink. Great cider and different than the usual stuff due to the oak.

Its a tart and almost sour cider, oak aging and 0 residual sugar produces a dry finish. kidmartinek (5001) - austin, Texas, USA - DEC 4, 2013
Pale clear yellow. Light oakt and apple aroma with subdued sweetness. Refreshing bite. Smooth balanced palate where the oak mellows the acidity very nicely. douglas88 (9515) - Portland, Oregon, USA - SEP 11, 2013
500 ml bottle. Pours a somewhat cloudy yellow color with a small white head. A medium oak and apple nose. The flavor is huge tannins super dry. Almost bitter tartness. Sharp. Good. Very raw. Nice for a 90 degree day. michaelinwa (656) - Bothell, Washington, USA - AUG 23, 2013
Bottle. Light pour, light, mediocre aroma. This is a very dry cider, without any interesting complexities, other than some oak flavor. It’s just way too dry for me. ryecatcher (1458) - Bridgeport, Chicago, Illinois, USA - APR 16, 2013
Bottle. Pours a pale orangey straw color, no head, lots of carbonation. Nose is cidery, but faint. Mouth is dry and tart up front, oaky in the middel and floral (roses) on the back end, appley throughout. I’m still not a huge cider fan, but this one is decent.
