#6 Cider Co. Pomegranate Cider
93 points
Red oak color. Aromas and flavors of cherry-rhubarb jelly on bread, hint of apple sauce, and green tomato with a satiny, lively, effervescent, fruity medium body and a tingling, stimulating, medium-long finish conveying elements of pomegranate, craisin, and nuts finish. A very nice sweet and sour cider with tangy fruity twist.
Sixpoint Brewery Brauhaus
93 points
Clear light gold color. Aromas and flavors of sourdough toast, dried citrus, and pineapple custard with a supple, bright, finely carbonated, dry-yet-fruity light body and a smooth, intricate, long finish conveying notes of watercress and nuts finish. A lovely, lightly fruity Helles with great crushability.
#6 Cider Co. Cold Brew Coffee Cider
90 points
Brilliant old gold color. Interesting, roasted aromas and flavors of fresh roasted coffee beans and baking chocolate with a supple, bright, effervescent, dry-yet-fruity light-to-medium body and a smooth, stimulating, medium-length finish with accents of honey roasted apples, reduced lemon, coffee ice cream, and hint of mint leaf finish. An interesting marriage of rich, but mild coffee flavors and tangy apple cider.
Sixpoint Brewery The Crisp
89 points
Minutely hazy gold color. Tropical, piney aromas and flavors of mango chutney, pine needle and forest, toast, and hop pellet with a supple, vibrant, finely carbonated, dryish medium body and a nuanced, long finish that exhibits overtones of honeyed lemon and melon, bitter greens, and peppery spice finish. A nice hoppy pilsner.
#6 Cider Co. True Original Cider
88 points
Light gold color. Aromas of baked apples and wet straw with a supple, crisp, effervescent, fruity light-to-medium body and a seamless, appealing, breezy melon, lime and orange, and straw finish. A crisp, fruity cider that is sure to please.
#6 Cider Co. Dry 99 Cider
88 points
Light gold color. Aromas and flavors of baked apple, nuts, and bark with a silky, tart, effervescent, sweet-and-sour medium body and a tingling, intriguing, medium-length finish evoking notes of green apple skin, lemon and lime, melon rind, and watercress finish. A nice dry, tart, lemony cider that wakes up the palate.
Sixpoint Brewery Tesla
88 points
Bright golden amber color. Sour, vegetal, dank aromas of collard greens and okra, peppercorns, and lemon sourdough bread with a round, soft, finely carbonated, sourish medium-to-full body and a warming, odd, medium-long turnip and sweet potato, bitter bark, orange-apricot vinaigrette, and lemon pepper finish. An unusually dank and sourish lager that drinks like an IPA; pair with Mallort
Texas Select Non-Alcoholic Malt Beverage
84 points
Light golden yellow color. Grainy aromas and flavors of bread dough, nuts, and straw with a soft, crisp, effervescent, dry light body and a polished, quick finish that presents touches of lettuce, radish sprouts, and clay and crayon finish. A crisp and convincing non-alcoholic lager.
