3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
Thanks to bu11zeye for sharing this bottle. Light yellow color with an aroma and flavor of sweet apples. I also get a hint of tartness and a bit of funk, but they are secondary to the apple flavors. Nice.

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
22oz waxed bomber. First of all, waxed dipped shit needs to fade into the sunset and secondly, whoever mixed the wax up for this one...shouldn’t do it again, ever. Luckily I wasn’t already drinking before I tried to get into this, or I would likely be in the ER right now waiting to get stitches. It is called wax dipped man, not plastic dipped. Okay, now that I have got that off my chest, onto the cider. Pours a clear bright darker straw yellow with some carbonation bubbles at first that fade almost instantly. Nice sweetness up front, clean, some depth, light honey and touches of floral...almost like a baby iced cider nose going on. Light to medium for a cider in feel with with enough carb feel to let you know it is there. Apples up front are more on the tart green apple side, gets a little more sweeter in the mid palate, maybe more like a sweet crab apple, with some funky skin notes in the end and decent amount of dryness. I was expecting a bit more sweetness, given the nose, but it is growing on me a bit.
