The pour is a slightly hazy gold with medium to high effervescence. The aroma is apples, leather and farmhouse phenolic. The taste is dry apple tart and slightly bitter. The finish is medium with a balance of acidic and astringency. The mouthfeel comes from both the tannins and the carbonation. My wife is generally not a fan of traditional English ciders but the dry and high carbonation appealed to her. This is more my profile and I enjoyed the complexity of it. Plus, it’s organic. This would be a good transition cider for someone who likes a modern dessert based cider as it is well balanced.
Amber-coloured, with an aroma featuring straw, leather, and moderate funk.
Crisp apple quickly gives way to dry, tannic tones, and an aftertaste with a strange, but not unpleasant, mineral quality.
Unusual cider, which went well with some stuffed olives. Good drinkability, but probably not sessionable.
Straw colour, slightly hazy and light fizz although it did go everywhere when I opened the bottle and again when I poured.
Strong funky aroma.
Straw flavour with moderate funk.
Soft mouthfeel, crisp with tannic finish.
