COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This cider has tropical notes from the elderflower balanced by a fresh, bright, fruity flavor reminiscent of lychee, pears, and citrus. This flower compliments the crisp apple flavor resulting in a balanced sweetness that brings the fruit and flower together.

12 oz. Pours clear and pale gold with a head that immediately sizzles away. Aroma is spicy pollen, sweet berry and apple. Tastes of spicy vanilla flower, apple-berry mix, and pleasant notes of peppery zest and woody pith. Light body is sweet but has a light astringency and a tart, zesty dryness on the finish. I like elderberry, and I like how they meshed it with the apple to create a totally different fruit flavor.

bottle. Light gold with minimal head. Very interesting flavor. Big apple, with a floral aspect. I wouldn’t have properly identified the extra taste if I didn’t already know what it was. This really works well for me, though I imagine it won’t appeal to everyone.

zach8270 (3882) - Henrietta, New York, USA - FEB 8, 2015
(bottle - 12 oz) Clear gold with a fizzy white head. Sweet apple and flowery aroma with a variety of different fruits. Sweet fruity and herbal flavor. A bit too much gong on for a cider.

patrick767 (3728) - fort wayne, Indiana, USA - AUG 16, 2014
bottle - This cider smells of apples and some mild florals. The flavor is sweet without being overpoweringly so and has a pleasant floral character in the background. It’s nice and refreshing.

UPDATED: JUN 8, 2013 12 oz bottle. Pours a very pale golden color and clear with a fizzy foam that quickly diminishes. Smells fruity and floral with a similar flavor. Crisp, not too sweet and easy to drink. Light body with a thin texture. Not bad at all.

queenholly (3559) - South Whitley, Indiana, USA - APR 13, 2013
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.

This might be a nice change of pace for folks who are fans of the alcoholic apple juice type of ciders but it really doesn’t work for me. It is clear yellow and headless. The nose is mild w/ a floral note being most evident, presumably from the elderflower. This is pretty sweet but at least not cloyingly so but not really tart enough to give it a crisp snap. The floral note combines w/ some apple juice character and the end result is something that reminds me quite a bit of Smarties candies. This is medium bodied w/ relatively mild carbonation and the end result both in flavor and texture is a sort of flat, boring cider that isn’t alltogether bad but also isnt particularly flavorful or good either.

snoworsummer (3333) - baltimore, Maryland, USA - MAY 9, 2014
Bottle. Tastes lightly sweet, like crisp apple with some floral tones, very light herb. Light body and low carbonation. Smells sweet, floral, fruity, nutty.

Pours straw yellow with no head. Aroma of apple, honey, and flower. Sweet flavor with apple, honey, and flowery finish. Too easy to drink.
