Bottle from Wolfey’s, so much sweet fruit and no bitterness to balance, just a sweet sweet mess to me.. but some chicks probably dig it.

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

Bottle thanks to somebody at the BTBF warm up tasting (Bill?). Clear yellow pour. Nose is apples, floral. Flavor is sweet, cloying, floral, honey, apples.

The aroma of this cider is subtle overall but with some hints of apple and a general flower scent, and the appearance is a clear, very light yellow with no head. The taste is quite sweet and mildly sour, and the palate combines a light body, flat carbonation, thin and slick texture, and a sour finish.

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.

Bottle. Light golden color. Taste and aroma is a pleasant slight floral one. Actually one of the better major ciders out there.

Bottle. Looks clear pale yellow. Smells good very appley, floral, sweet. Tastes crisp with a sweet finish. Tastes like apple cider mixed with tea, interesting. Works okay.

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.

Imagine taking your grandma’s potpourri that has been sitting on her piano for 25 years and pouring that in your drink so you get that old musty flower profile and that is what this stuff is. An odd mixture of sweetness and dust that gives me an initial reaction of wanting to spit it out with each sip.

I wasn’t entirely sure what I was tasting here. Apples, certainly; but following the pomaceous fruit flavor, was this peculiar numbing blossomy chemical tanginess resembling body fragrance and stale tea. Was not a fan. I’d drink again, however, but only if pressed.
