COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This crisp and refreshing cider mixes the sweetness of the apples with a subtle dryness for a balanced cider taste. The fresh apple aroma and slightly sweet, ripe apple flavor make this cider hard to resist.

I really donít see the hype from this hard cider. It does have a good, crisp, fresh apple taste, but, there is a weird side-taste that other hard ciders donít have. It is kind of sour in a bad way, and it just puts me off of this. I donít see how more people ignore this, as it is very prominent, and usually starts off the taste in a very sour/bad malty (donít know how else to describe it) way. I will say that without this, it would be a top cider choice. I prefer Woodchucks, especially the barrel select one.

strong aromas of apple on the pour. color of ginger ale in the glass. low carbonation. a fair amount of sweetness, but tart finish. probably a "middle of the road" cider as providing enough sweetness for cooler drinkers, yet enough "crisp apple" to satisfy more seasoned cider drinkers.

Pours a very clear slightly green/yellow color with some soapy bubbles white disappear quickly. Nose is subtle fruit, with some green apple. Body is light a crisp, sweet from the start going to a slightly dry finish. Tasty cider but lacking complexity, a decent go-to.

This one is a little light on flavor. I prefer the green apple. It's just a little sweet for my taste. Try baiting it with a sharp bourbon. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

[Bottle (355ml)] Pours a clear pale gold with no head. Decent aroma of apples, sweet and a touch sugary, but not overly. Flavourís also decent, sweet apples, lightly dry. Average to medium bodied. I had no problem with this.

Rating #1104 - May 25, 2014 - Taste of Spruce Grove - Sample. Clear, very pale yellow colour, weakly carbonated. Aroma is sweet apples. Taste is bubbly sweet, alcohol very well disguised, this could pass for juice. Not artificial as is the trend with ciders, this is appley and fresh, has a ripeness to it. Tasty.
