Today I finally got my car back from the body shop. $7,000 in repairs later, I’m good to go. Well, except for the $1,200 in non-accident related repairs that they identified. That kind of investment needs to wait a few weeks. In unrelated news, this may be last post for the week. Tomorrow evening I’m headed to Boston to go to the Ice Bar and the weekend is….well, the weekend. I will leave you with a couple more cider reviews, captured from last week’s tasting.
Stowe Traditional Cider, made in Stowe, Vermont, got mixed reviews from the crowd. Heather thought it smelled like salty Play Doe. I found the stuff bland, but I don’t know crap about cider. Melissa thought it was OK and detected a touch of honey flavor. Greg found it slightly sour near the end. A couple of us noted that it was dry.
I captured significantly fewer notes about Pruner’s Pride Cider…perhaps because I was lazy, perhaps because we had already tried a few ciders before this one. What I wrote down is as follows: 6% ABV, Melissa liked it, tasted like carbonated apple juice.
