I love the level of sweetness of this cider - quite dry. I didn’t find the "spice" very noticeable, thank goodness. There are better craft ciders out there but usually at twice the price or more. Wanderlust is well worth a try. j12601 (12974) - Poughkeepsie, New York, USA - MAR 3, 2012
Bottle. Pours a clear amber gold with wisps of a thin white head. Soft caramel and a touch of apple on the nose. Crisp with a light spicy note. Very easy drinking. Crisp acidity, bright notes of acid on the finish. Like this a lot. Nothing crazy, but easy drinking, flavorful, and smooth. auerbrau (3203) - Ithaca, New York, USA - NOV 6, 2011
22oz Bottle, poured at CiderDays 2011. A nice sweetness and a clean flavor palate. A touch of spiciness compliments a good balance of sugar and acid. Not overly complex, but quite palatable. wedgie9 (2702) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - SEP 28, 2011
Tasted on 9/27/11 from a 22oz bomber bottle. Pours pale golden with some spritzy lace with no real head. The nose is sweet apple juice with just a hint of ginger spices underlying. The flavor is dry apple with a bit of dusty earth, and underlying ginger spice. The body is medium with light, but stinging, carbonation, and a long apple and spicy ginger finish.

UPDATED: JUN 23, 2011 Bottle from New Beer($5.50). 6.9%abv. Unbranded tulip pour. Pale golden body. Spritzy soda head. Heavy nucleation coming from an un-etched glass. Yay!
Smells oddly like a blend of whit beer & champagne. Green fruit, yeast, & something similar to coriander.
Intro is crabby/tart & a bit yeasty, moving further into sour candy tartness. Bittersweet throughout, fruity, nearly brut, but not all the way. Acid seems kind of mild overall, as it turns floral, dry, & seemingly grain-like middle end on. Lemony, leafy green, & almost bone dry finish. Missing ginger that was advertised. Remains a bit simple.
Glassy texture. Champagne-like carbonation. Thin & somewhat numbing. Pasty & dry. Alcohol is in check, preservatives are used sparingly.
At half the price, this is a better dry then most of that Farnum Hill stuff you boobs swoon over. Yeah, it doesn’t seem to undergo a second fermentation, but there is more fruit, & the alcohol is well hidden. I have high hopes for that $15 bottle of Kingston Black though. Hmm...

Faint apple juice nose. Clear yellow. Tart, somewhat dry apple flavor. Slightly savory, which is nice. Mouthfeel is stinging. Not a big fan. argo0 (14127) - Washington DC, USA - APR 22, 2011
22oz bottle. Still, clear apple juice body, small legs. Aroma is moderately sweet, tart apple, light honey. Taste is medium sweet, apple, some tartness, light yeast, alcohol. Light-medium body. Gription79 (2891) - Bountiful, Utah, USA - APR 4, 2011
Bright golden pour. Nose had dry apples and a touch of spice. Tastes were tart with a strong acidity, green and sweet juicy apples, and finished dry and crisp. JoeMcPhee (9451) - Toronto, ON, Ontario, CANADA - MAR 26, 2011
Pale golden pour. The nose is softly sweet and appley. A little bit of light tannic apple skin character. Crisp and appley with a nice lingering sweetness. It’s simple, but pretty appealing. DuffMan (10549) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - MAR 10, 2011
Bottle. Never sure how I should rate a cider’s appearance. This was nothing special, clear medium golden yellow, no head, fine carbonation. Aroma is lightly spicy bruised apples, maybe some vanilla or honey (something imparting sweetness). Flavour is nice lightly tart apples, light gingery spice, with a chalky minerally note in the finish. Went great with our fish dinner.
