3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
UPDATED: JUL 10, 2015 Bottle. Pours a hazy yellow with a fine head. Nose is floral with an undertone of nuts and spices -- there’s a definite solidity under the light notes of flowers and fruit. Off-dry, floral predominant on the front of the tongue then resolving into acidity and a tart dryness. Finishes clean. Very nice, and well balanced.

pale straw pour.
Arome of apple blossoms and pear.
Flavour is light floral and pear. Light apple then a floral finish.
I actually enjoyed this one quiet a bit.

12oz twist-off bottle, white label. Yellow color. Tastes of apple juice with a touch of floral, cranberry essence. Smells of flowers. Very thin. It’s better than Angry Orchard Crisp Apple. (3681)

Bottle. Poured clear golden color with a minimal head that diminished slowly with little lacing. Medium green floral apple aroma. Medium body with a smooth texture and soft carbonation. Medium green apple flavor with a medium sweet finish of short to moderate duration. Soft refreshing beverage.

Nearly clear pale yellow. Nice dandelion flavor. This works really well. Tart. Tasty.

Right off the bat, the aroma is worrying - smells like a cheap cider. Pours with no head, and with moderate carbonation. The best part of this cider is the first hit of the tongue - you get a pleasant rush of floral accents and juicy apple without being too citrusy or too dry and bitter. The biggest praise I can give to this cider is that it manages to keep everything light and in balance without sacrificing the flavour. Don’t get me wrong, this isn’t a premium cider, but at 7.99 for a 6 pack, this is perfect summer drinking.

Ehh... Nothing to rave about here. Of course it tastes like tart apples. Not so much lychee (but it is there). It probably would have stood out more if the presence of elderflower in the aroma and taste. The finish was nice though, like crisp apple peel and flower petals.

Bottle. Sweet commercial apple juice and light pear aroma. Clear gold, no head per usual for cider. Sweet and slightly tart apple and distinctive perfumey elderflower flavor. Light body, lively carbonation, and slightly dry finish.

12oz bottle poured into a shaker. Pours a clear pale gold with no head. Aroma of apples and citrus. Taste is light sweet. Mostly apples with a little tropical junk in the aftertaste. Light bodied with a slightly aticky texture. Fizzy carbonation and a decently long finish. Overall, not bad. Not one of my favorites though.
