2.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
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 I’ve 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 don’t think apples have enough apple flavor. I won’t be trying any more of their ciders.

Loved this cider. It is a pear hard cider with a soft champagne palate with a fruity aroma. It fits with the current trend of dry ciders that remind one of dry eclectic white wine/champagne.

"A little overrated me thinks on this here site. Nothin wrong with it, but nothing stands out either. It would be straight up average but for the slightly too bubbly feel and an abv you can taste a touch more than I’d prefer."

2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
This was poured into a wine glass.
The appearance was a golden yellow to orange color with a decent transparency about it allowing a light carbonation to be seen rising throughout.
The smell had a deep dry apple vinous and spritz inessential pummeling my nose.
The taste was mainly the same thing with a slight sweetness trying to come in.
On the palate, this one sat about a light on the body with a decent sessionability about it. The carbonation was harsh and dry.
Overall, maybe okay for those that like this sort of thing, thanks for the tick as I probably wouldn’t come back to this.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
12oz bottle, thanks to Shawn. Kind of pale, clear golden color. Minimal off-white bubbly head. Medium body. Kind of crisp lighter carbonation. Light slick finish. Clean apple juice aroma. Kind of yellow / light bit of green apple type flavor. Lightly tart, moderate sweet. Decent cider. Reasonably easy-drinking. Not too sweet -- 6.9% is hidden well. Not much to it, but pretty solid.
