auerbrau (3203) - Ithaca, New York, USA - NOV 3, 2012
3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 13/20
750mL Bottle poured at CiderDays 2012. Aroma gives a distinct nose of Swiss cheese rind. This is odd. The character is unique and really interesting set of savory and sweet flavors, but the overall balance never comes together in a snappy way. I appreciate trying the flavors that come out of these single varietals, but I can’t get into the fact that they don’t hold the whole package together.
