look: 2 | smell: 2 | taste: 1.5 | feel: 2 | overall: 1

Poured from a can into a shaker pint.

A- Ruddy brown with hints of red, very cloudy.

S-Apple cider, allspice, wet wood.

T-Straight apple juice, finished with cinnamon stick.

M- Thin, lightly carbonated.

O- In a blind tasting this is identical to most ciders. Motts Apple juice which finishes and leaves you with cinnamon and allspice. Nothing even close to "farmhouse" in this beer. Maybe they brewed this in a farmhouse, because it tastes like it came from an orchard. Very misleading label, unsatisfactory product, would not buy again and would discourage other from trying. Not worth the money.

Poured from can into glass. No head. Light carbonation. Tasted mildly skunky, not sure if its actually skunked, I think the yeast is just out of control. I wouldn't buy this again. Word word word Word word word Word word word Word word word Word word word

AROMA: Sweet Malt, Melon

APPEARANCE: Golden, Clear, Thick dissipating head

TASTE: Aroma flavors follow-through here. Expected alcohol and peppery notes aren't prevalent up front. Instead, a delicate sweetness from the malt is immediately apparent followed by notes of Cantaloupe and/or Honey Dew melon and some pear. Bittering is fairly low, with hop flavor appropriately low

MOUTHFEEL: Low Carbonation, mild slickness, delicate lingering warmth in the finish

OVERALL: In my mind, falls somewhere between a Blond and a Farmhouse but closer to the Farmhouse. It's quite drinkable and approachable. It the summer months, the flavors and low warmth will probably make this more enjoyable than other examples within the style.

Available in 750ml bottles and cans at the brewery.
