First Impression:  Medium straw yellow hue.  Moderate carbonation.  Smells mild, sharp, of floral and citrus.

Tasting Notes:  Dry to semi-dry.  Light to medium bodied.  Moderate tartness.  High acidity.  Low bitterness.  Low tannins.  No sourness or funk.  Notes of herbal, floral, lemon, green apple, white grape, pineapple, crab apples, and mineral.  Moderate to long finish.  Moderate sessionability, apple flavor, flavor intensity, and complexity.

My Opinion:  Tasty.  I was surprised how flavorful it was for its level of dryness.  Juicy and sharp.

Most Similar to:  Dragon’s Head Columbia Crabapple, Montana Ciderworks Spartan Dry-Style, Blue Moon Raven’s Moon Apple Cider, and Scandinavian Green Apple Cider

Closing Notes:   This is a great value, considering it is imported (although not very far) and Organic.  I haven’t seen any other varieties from them yet though (it looks like they primarily make grape wine).
