Went up into the top of Michigan's mitten for a wine and cider adventure this past weekend. I mentioned to one of the cider makers that the nose had what I described as a note of funk. I picked it up in a number of the ciders we tasted at other cideries too. The cider maker indicated that funk was not a good descriptor in the wine and cider world which I can understand. In my way of thinking it wasn't a bad thing or off-putting in this case and in most of the ones at other cideries. There were a couple that had off-putting aromas and even carried into the flavor profile. I don't think it was a sulfur note as it wasn't nearly the smell the Saison I make generates during fermentation. Can anyone help me or send me in a direction so that I might figure out what on Earth I might have been picking up?
