Crispin Artisanal Reserve The Saint
22oz bottle. Poured a cloudy yellow color with a thin sized head. Smelled and tasted like a cider. Not sure what I was expecting from the Trappist yeast, but to me it was just another cider.

ABV - 6.9 .Appearance: Unfiltered, cloudy golden haze, very thin white head that dissipates immediately. .Aroma: Honey, maple syrup, floral notes. .Taste: Crisp apple gives way to an overpowering honey sweetness mixed in with subtle maple flavor, funky finish, slight dough flavor, slight sugar .Mouthfeel: Medium body, crisp, dry .Overall: B- .Solid cider, but the aftertaste is unsettling. Still very enjoyable.

Crispin Artisanal Reserve Honey Crisp
Cloudy dully orange/gold color. A very smooth and unrefined cider that has a nice touch of honey sweetness to amplify the apple juice. Tastes way better than the original cider as it is in its raw form. Just goes to prove unfiltered is always better.

Pours a hazed golden with a white head. Dry apple aroma. Starts dry then quickly becomes musty apple sweet and finishes dry. Would be better if it was dry all the way through. Notes: bottle in Lake Tahoe, June ’17

Bottle at Clubhouse BFD event. Pours light semi hazy lemon. Aroma is apple cider, little lemon-lime, some bourbon rum notes (but very minimal). Flavor is apple pie, cinnamon, syrupy, sticky. Very apple-heavy. Actually quite good for a cider. I’d have it again.

Crispin Browns Lane Imported English Cider
I signed up just to review this urine in a can. Have the best memories of the two liter bottles of cider in Waterford Ireland that we would happily get snockered on. Have yet to determine the name of that cider. In pursuit of it I have been buying each cider available for grocery store prices. They have all been a sweet mess. I thought I hit some top shelf when I saw this import, but was weary of an English version of cider. This stuff is more akin to a white wine, if served as such I wouldn’t have known the difference. Perhaps I am biased, but this truly does smell like my urine and the taste can’t be far from it. I want my money back and have lost all hope in the ciders available at the grocery store. My bad, I will have to step up my game to the taverns and Growler fills to find what I am after. Those prices are a far cry from the two liters sold around Ireland though, so I will first have a hand at fermenting my own cider and see how that turns out. I gave this cider a little credit on appearance since it does look like a crisp apple juice, but I think what I want is a cloudy finish that doesn’t again, look just like my toilet aftermath. Did I mention I want my money back?

Crispin Pacific Pear
Single from WFB. Mason jar pour. Clear, pale, golden straw-colored body. Sizzling carbonation. Smell is surprisingly good. Fresh pear & honeydew. Taste is much the same. Low carbonation. Thin. Mild pear, big on leeche, mellow eating apples. Bottle says they also add natural flavors. Hides the usual strained yeasty flavor I get from Crispin, but I feel slighted(because I liked it).

Crispin Artisanal Reserve The Saint
Visual: Pours slightly hazy yellow with large bubbles clinging to the side of the glass, no head, the same bubbles sporadically surfacing.

Nose: tangy apple juice. (lvl-5)-pungency

Attack: crisp-dense juicy, slightly tart

Mid-palate: (lvl-5-sweetness), sour-tangy acidity, bright apple juice, rounded body, yeasty mild palate rough, subtle non-descript spices

Finish: maple syrup undertones, apple juice exhale

Summary: An inviting big fruity apple flavour with a good amount of tangy-sour acidity and a hint of spice and maple syrup to round it out. Not exceptionally complex but enjoyable nonetheless. Solid.

Crispin Browns Lane Imported English Cider
Like the previous rater, I was thrilled when I found the cider. I have long struggled with (and dissed a great deal) the preponderance of American ciders that are far too sweet, heavily carbonated, and artificial. I’ve had a lot of English cider; in fact, I first developed a taste for cider while living in England. That, to me, is the true cider. This cider gets a great deal right about the English style. I liked that there was body and it didn’t depend on carbonation to appeal to the palate. The aroma had that classic English cider vibe. The flavor is flush with the varietals you’d get in Herefordshire. If there’s any complaint, I wasn’t wholly satisfied by the mid-to-late finish, which persists but doesn’t evolve or round off the flavor. At a few moments, it felt as though the finish were a little hollow. But overall, this was still a lovely can of cider, aspiring to the greatest of all cider traditions (apologies to the French, the Quebecois, etc.). Can.

Love this pear cider - it is definitely sweeter because of the blackberry but I think the pear and blackberry compliment each other.

22 oz bottle. Pours a clear golden amber color much like apple cider with no head. The aroma and flavor have sweet apples, maple syrup, brown sugar, apple skins, a mild Belgian yeast character, good for what it is, but it’s not a style I like.

Cloudy straw color. Woody apple scent. I envision a fall day at the orchard with casks setting in the back room. Flavors are a bit too thin to handle all the wood and rye.

Crispin Blackberry & Pear Cider
Purple-raspberry copper hue with no head. Artificial blackberry alcohol phenols on the nose and light pear. Juicy sweet but paradoxically dryish flavor that’s full of blackberry and pear, artificial sugary booze phenols and a berry fleshy finish. Honestly not that bad, but it’s entertaining like a disaster movie. Not redeemable on any aspect other than I can turn my brain off and enjoy it’s baser qualities.

Crispin Original
2015 BJCP Category: C1A New World Cider

AROMA: Light aroma of mostly green/golden apples. Slight tartness. No acidity. Mild nose overall. 6/12

APPEARANCE: Pale gold hue; crystal clear with consistent CO2 visible. White foam immediately dissipates. 3/3

FLAVOR: Medium to semi-sweet palette, no superfluous sugary presence. Flavor is mostly red apple with distinct green apple tartness on the finish. Faint acidity in the aftertaste, but it does not linger. 14/20

MOUTHFEEL: Medium-light body and carbonation (not as crisp as it looks). Refreshing with a fairly clean aftertaste. Light tannins. 3/5

OVERALL IMPRESSION: Pretty standard, no-frills cider. It’d be better either bone dry or richly sweet. 7/10

TOTAL SCORE: 33/50
