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.

Really enjoyable, with a sweet flavor and a dry finish. For gluten free, this is pretty solid.

2oz sample at International Great Beer Expo (Meadowlands). Pours a fizzy light pale yellow color. Aroma is herbal, with notes of urin, yeast, apples. Taste of sour lemon, yeast, and bitter apples.

Apple juice nose. Crystal clear golden, some carbonation visible. Apples, tart and slightly vinegary. Nothing special.

Bottle. Clear, light golden, average carbonation and aroma. Taste is on the dry side. Nothing special, but nothing really flawed. I enjoyed it.

lb4lb (2214) - Austin, Texas, USA - SEP 28, 2013
Very dry and champagne like. Under carbonated however which really kills it for me. Would like this better if it were a bit crisper feeling to go along with the nice dry Apple flavor. Decent.

Draft. Not very good. Really watery. Meh. Dry with a decent apple aroma but not much in the way of flavor.

tap at Dash In 3/15/13 - This cider has a rich apple aroma and some sweetness up front with tart apple leading into a dry finish. Alcohol is noticeable in the flavor but just minimally. Light bodied. Pretty good.

I didnít know that this was so high in abv. Iíve had the really high abv ciders in the UK that are aimed at the youth-partying market (like "White Diamond") and those are extremely crass, harsh, and chemically substances. This is much more pleasant by comparison, though thatís not low standard. Very light color. I found this dry on the front with the sticky, phlegmy finish characteristic of many ciders. Not especially apple-driven in the flavor. Drinkable but not a very good cider in the scheme of things. Bottle.
