3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle from Half Time. Pours clear light gold with a few white bubbles. Aromas of apple and ginger - the ginger sort of muddles the apple aspects. Near med body. Flavor starts sweet, moves to ginger and finishes rather tart. Not exactly a dry finish, but not overly sweet either. Pretty drinkable.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours a golden orange with a few white bubbles. Nose is green apple candy. A lot of sweet sugar and apple juice with a light tartness. Ginger comes through on the finish. The flavor is sweet and tart up front. The ginger is nice on the finish and adds a bit of complexity. Some apple skins and a hint of candy sweetness.

3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle @ home. Random mini cider tasting. Clear, dark orange appearance with an off white head that dissipates quickly. Tangy apple, spicy ginger, potpourri, floral aroma. Tangy, sweet apple pie, spicy, moderate ginger, slightly floral with a tart finish. My favorite of the three from these guys and I think the ginger is a nice addition to the cider.

2.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Pours deep gold with minimal head and a lot of carbonation. Nose is apple, honey, mild ginger. Tastes sweet, with a definite ginger and sesame oil flavor and some late honey. Decent, but the ginger doesn’t work well for me here.

355mL. Pours clear, sparking, brilliant golden. Fizzing white foam. Lots of nucleation points. Nose is heavy, sweet apples, white grapes. Taste is quite tart, tangy, with lactic and citric sourness. Very muted, dusty ginger spice and tea tannic balance. Easy to enjoy. Not cloying, not artificial tasting. Palate is the hight point. Fiance rating: 3.6

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottled. Poured clear medium golden with a short-lived white head.. left some sticky lacing as it descended. The aroma picked up meaty apples and dirty, earthy ginger.. some tart skins and some crisp meat evident.. intriguing. The flavor found apple meat and very light bready notes at the core.. tangy skins, ginger, and a kiss of brandy around.. finished with tasty apples and complementary ginger. Light-medium bodied and crisp on the palate.. fresh, well-balanced, and intriguing.
