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. ryan (3186) - Beltsville, Maryland, USA - DEC 19, 2010
Nice apple and honey nose with some light vanilla-oak notes. The taste is lightly sweet, lightly tart with fresh apples, some light clove honey and a touch of pear skins. Just a touch of funk in the finish. m4rest88 (389) - Beverly Hills, California, USA - MAR 8, 2009

500mL Bottle poured at CiderDays 2010. Oak comes out immediately in the nose and is enjoyable as slight bit of butter. Good apple complexity adds depth to this. Clearish gold. Flavors are apple-solid, but come on a with a good fist of oak dryness, which I think has been crafted to work with residual sugars and not too much apple tannin. Enjoyable.

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. SphinxTX (2875) - Mata Gorda, Texas, USA - FEB 2, 2010

(500ml bottle) bright gold, light glass coating and bubbles that fade fast like a soda. Nose of tart apples, light oak, a mild bit of funk, sugar and very tiny bit of alcohol. Taste is dry and tart, Oaky, refreshing, lightly lemony, very well carbonated. Could drink this out at the pool. mar (5410) - Dallas, Texas, USA - JUL 16, 2012
Gold pour with a white head. Nose is tart apples, wood, vanilla, and not much else. Easy on the palate, very tart, very dry, fresh apple, and a smooth finish.
