Sampled at the 2013 Chicago Cider Summit. Pours a clear watery gold with no head whatsoever. Aroma is quite thin with just a hint of tart apple. Flavor is also quite watery with just a bit of apple coming through.

Bottle. Pours a crystal clear golden color with almost no head. Nose is crisp and filled with apple. Not all that sweet, nor crisp. Meh.

Draft to tulip. Looks solid; a mostly transparent gold with no real lacing, but lively carbonation. Smells and tastes very tart with an average mouthfeel and a fairly dry finish. Okay.

Ernest (6343) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - JAN 29, 2013
Bottle. Head is initially very small, fizzy, white, fully diminishing. Body is very light yellow. Aroma is notes of apple candy (Jolly Rancher), grass, hint of plastic. Flavor is lightly to moderately sweet, lightly to moderately acidic. Finish is lightly sweet, lightly to moderately acidic, slightly unclean. Light to medium body, watery texture, fizzy carbonation, lightly astringent. A joker, indeed...as in, a joke of a cider, or, the joke is on the customer...basically just artificially flavored apple soda.

Bottle. Strange chemical/petroleum apple aroma. Pale yellow with a fizzy white head. Dry green/underipe/jollyrancher apple and artificially tart flavor. Light fizzy body, dry finish. This makes the third cider Iíve tried from this company, and all of them are overly and artificially tart with the addition of malic acid and "enhanced" with natural flavorings. I guess they donít think apples have enough apple flavor. I wonít be trying any more of their ciders.

Chipalsa (1310) - Florida, USA - NOV 7, 2012
6.9% abv (new bottle?). The color was a nice yellow with a messy, fluffy head. Aromas were just apple and leaves, very ambient in a sense. The taste was crisp and dry apple, with little tart towards the finish. It got sweeter as it warmed up, but just not really a full flavor.

Clean and Crisp, this is a refreshing cider. Think of a dry Apple Champagne itís sparkling, clear, medium sweetness with tart. Hard to believe the alcohol is 6.9%.

Rodriguez (264) - Quito, ECUADOR - OCT 7, 2012
Pale, almost transparent, draft, it is my first cider and I think it was perfect, very drinkable. Even it is a hard cider, for me it was a little soft. Will start to try more cider, definetively

Draft at NCBC. Pours a crystal clear pale gold with a fizzy thick white head. Sour cabbagey nose with fusel over-carbed overtones. Fizzy medium body with soap, cabbage, fusel, and CO2 showing. Tart finish.
