Bottle. Pale yellow. Aroma of rotted, sour apples. Taste is very sour white wine vinegar. Interesting.

mcberko (17328) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUN 26, 2016
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. Meh.

Oakes (17274) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAR 22, 2008
Golden-yellow colour. Light sparkle and some legs. Fresh apple nose with a little bit of skin and spice. Tart, almost leathery with fresh apple. Complex yet drinkable and clean. Solid cider.

bhensonb (15094) - Woodland, California, USA - JAN 17, 2010
750 from Monument in Concord, CA. Pours orange tinged gold with white bubbles. Aroma of baked apples. Near medium body with mild carbonation. Flavor is baked apple skins with astringency. It is very dry. So dry it seems oaky. Very quaffable cider. Somewhat complicated as time moves on.

(Hand bottle, courtesy of ericandersnavy) Pours a clear yellow body with light legs. Aroma of apple, band-aid, earth, and subtle honey. Flavor of sweet apple, some funkiness, and band-aid with a dry oak finish.

crossovert (12667) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - FEB 11, 2014
Its a tart and almost sour cider, oak aging and 0 residual sugar produces a dry finish.

2.8
hopscotch (11050) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - JAN 1, 2011
Bottle… Clear yellow cider with a mid-sized, wispy, white head that’s gone in a flash. The aroma is of day-old, fallen apples -nicely acidic and modestly fruity with a note of toasted oak. Light-bodied and watery with dancing carbonation. The flavor is tart, but mostly thin and fairly nondescript. Not all that fruity, although I do pick up a rumor of bitter and sour apple. Crisp, bland, bone-dry finish. Not nearly as good as their Bloom cider.

3.6
j12601 (11010) - Poughkeepsie, New York, USA - FEB 3, 2013
Bottle that I took to jtclockwork’s place for a tasting. Pours a clear golden amber with a thin white head that deflates immediately. Soft apples and a touch of oak on the nose. Medium bodied, super dry, a bit of a disconnect from the nose, which had a lot more sweetness. Dry into the finish with a bit of oak. Easy drinking but very dry.
