Zeffer Slack ma Girdle
500 ml bottle from Louisville Beer Store; shared with Boo. Aroma: Moderate bittersweet juice with some lighter lemon/citrus characteristics. Appearance: Transparent yellow gold with a stream of carbonation holding up a spotty head. Flavor: Sweet over bitter juice up front; citrus elements add some tartness that lingers on to the finish, which is long. Palate: Medium body, sticky texture, average carbonation, long finish. Overall: Not going to knock you out with complexity, but an enjoyable one nonetheless. Quenches a greasy slice of pizza pretty well.

Zeffer Cidre Demi-Sec
0,5L bottle bought at the Bottle Shop Hong Kong. Appearance: Pours a clear, bright golden colour with really thin white head Lively and fizzy carbonation. Aroma: Fresh crisp and sweet apple, with some oak and spice character. Also with some maple leaf syrup notes. Taste: Medium to heavy crisp apple, syrup sweetness. With some white grape tartness as well. Some mild oak and spice tastes. Palate: Full body with dry, sweet, juicy crisp apple aftertaste. Silky texture with moderate to high carbonation. Overall: Nice cider that showcases the natural sweetness of crisp and juicy cider apples. But it may be a bit too sweet for me (turns into some really sweet syrup at the end) and that the oak character can also be stronger. Worth a try though as it is very refreshing and easy-going.

Delikatny typowy cydr, ale ze spora nutka chmielu. Fajnie pachnace, jablkami zielonymi i swierzym chmielew, iglaste drzewa takze. W smaku zywica drzew iglastych, jablka kwasne, nieco szarlotki i nalesniki z jablkami. Owocowo chmielne, dlugi wytrawno-gozki finisz, dlugo zalegajacy w ustach. Ciekawe podejscie, Nietypowe wrazenia piwno - cydrowe.

Zeffer Slack ma Girdle
0,5L bottle bought at the Bottle Shop Hong Kong. Appearance: Pours a clear, deep golden colour with fast disappearing white head. Lively and fizzy carbonation and bubbles. Aroma: Mainly ripe red apple, with some light tart, crisp apple. Some tropical fruit such as white grape, citrus and guava. Smells like brett beer when warm. Taste: Medium ripe apple tartness and sweetness. Some oak, wood and spice. Quite strong tannin and apple tartness when swallow. The complexity of the taste is quite smooth. Palate: Very dry and crisp finish with ripe apple and light spice and brett aftertaste. Sharp and rich tannin. Full body with high carbonation. Overall: Very juicy and refreshing ripe apple. Well-balanced sweetness and tannin tartness. It smells similar to brett when it becomes warmer. The dry and full-bodied finish conclude its complexity quite good.

Zeffer Hopped up Pippin
5.8%ABV. Cider. Tapped out an effervescent pale gold. 2ļSRM. Nose is sour, cidery and dry. There is perfume-like baby powder dimension to the nose. Raw fruit either pear or Apple is also in the nose and gives you the impression of a small crate of unwashed fresh-picked fruit. Mouthfeel is juice and carbonated. Sweet with the flavor of apples. Sour comes in at the end of the palate and brief and barely tart. Medium dry finish with a faint tanin-like stickiness on the palate.

Zeffer Zesty Citrus Infused Cider
500 ml bottle from Old Town; split three ways. Aroma: Bittersweet apple juice nearly balanced by orange juice notes; light grass/hay notes otherwise. Very pale; filtered yellow body with a stream of bubbly carbonation holding up a scant white ring of head. Flavor: Orange notes predominantly up front with more bittersweet apple thereafter; the finish is dry and has maybe a little hay. Palate: Light body, slick texture, lively carbonation, abrupt finish. Overall: An interesting mix of orange and apple impressions; not surprisingly, this rather grew on me as it warmed. A really nice blending.

12 oz. draft at Gralehaus. Aroma: Lighter bittersweet juice with bright tropical fruit hop character; India Pale Cider, anyone? Appearance: Pale gold colour with softer carbonation holding up a patchy white head. Flavour: Subdued bittersweet juice up front, followed by a crescendo of tropical fruit hops and lesser bittersweet juice; the finish is dry, abrupt and barely bitter. Palate: Light body, sticky texture, soft carbonation, abrupt finish. Overall: My second hopped cider, and an eye opener with regards to the possibilities here. A real treat!

Zeffer Hopped up Pippin
Bottle from World Beer Market. Zeffer Hopped up Pippin Cider 5.8% Iíve been looking to try a cider that has been dry hopped. It pours a deep clear shining gold. The aroma is a herbal, spicy almost sweet tart like hippy aroma that pretty much overpowers the apple. Very seltzer like carbonation on a light body. The taste is tart, sweet, a bit candyish with a mild fruity hop bite. Itís interesting and quite good but I feel this particular blend of hops & cider clash more than complement each other. Alright.
