(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.

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. Itís nice and refreshing.

3.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
bottle. Light gold with minimal head. Very interesting flavor. Big apple, with a floral aspect. I wouldnít have properly identified the extra taste if I didnít already know what it was. This really works well for me, though I imagine it wonít appeal to everyone.

2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
This might be a nice change of pace for folks who are fans of the alcoholic apple juice type of ciders but it really doesnít 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 isnít alltogether bad but also isnt particularly flavorful or good either.

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.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
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.

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
12 oz. bottle, $2 single at Binnyís. And not date notched like the Sam Adams beers. Twist-off crown. First whiff is pretty yeasty for a cider. After that clears off, thereís some sweet apple smell, and a hint of berries. Pretty fizzy pour, with a head thatís gone as soon as I stop pouring. Pale yellow, though not as pale as the one Virtue cider Iíve had. Smell is a bit high on the apple side, but at least does not smell "processed." Taste is light on the apple, though, and has overtones of nuts and passionfruit. A slight note of wet hay in the next sip. A different taste to be sure.
