Bottle @ home, thanks to jcnielsen. Clear, light golden appearance with no head. Fairly tart, lots of spice, herbal, and juicy. Not super complex but quaffable. Easy to drink. jcnielsen (3412) - Charlotte, North Carolina, USA - MAR 29, 2016
On tap at Sycamore Brewing. Pours a yellow color with white head. Apple, sweet, tart aromas and flavors. Good, but not as great as the Rusty Gold and Gala Peach. Lubiere (13994) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 28, 2015
A golden cider with aroma of smooth sweet apples, light mineral notes and maple, nice. In mouth, a nice sweet apple pulp with light incense, cloves, ginger, light acidity, well done. On tap at Revolution Ale House. weihenweizen (3890) - Charleston Area, West Virginia, USA - AUG 4, 2014
Clear pale golden with small white head. Aroma is ginger, medium body,, medium carbonation, and little lacing. Taste is malty ginger and some apple. Good stuff. balancebeer (15) - Charlotte, North Carolina, USA - APR 5, 2013
I found this cider to be exception in every way. It had tremendous balance, lovely flavors, and a long finish. I put this at the top of my domestic cider list. I was sad when the bottle was empty. Luckily for me I will be carrying the cider in my store very soon. The only cider that I have enjoyed more is the stuff from Eric Bordelet.
