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.

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.

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.

12 ounce bottle. Pours a straw yellow with no head. Taste is of apples, lychee, floral, pears and citrus. Similar, slightly cleaner aroma. Has a decent lighter body with a tart, fruity finish. Easy to drink and quite refreshing. Reminds me of a really good fruit snack.

Brief write-up. Pours a chill-hazed straw color. Beyond the typical note of sweet apple on the aroma, there’s a slight herbal component as well - one that not only interests me, but balances a touch of the sweetness. The flavor profile is much the same way: yes it has a lot of sweet apple, but there are some notes of herbs, apricot, and tropical fruit that actually create a modicum of interest here. The feel is typical, though - very sweet on the finish. Having said that, this isn’t bad at all.

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.

Weak aroma. Strong metallic flavor that lingers after the swish. Pour is a crystal clear yellow with no head.

Bottle. Aroma shows faint apple but taste is sweeter than the dry cider. A good different.

HuskerTan (446) - Holdrege, Nebraska, USA - DEC 30, 2013
Bottle. A- Pears, citrus, apples. A- Pale yellow color, clear liquid, no head. T- Lychee, pears, apples, lemons, flowers. Slightly sweet and sour. P- Light body, thin texture, high carbonation, tart finish. O- The fruity tones are nice, but the floral tones are a little odd. Still crisp and drinkable.

12floz/355ml bottle into a weizen glass. Served cold. Aroma: Apple, yes, but drier than the crisp apple that AO puts out. I don’t know how to describe the other, more prominent aroma, so I’ll attribute it to the elderflower. It smells dry, mildly flowery, and a teeny bit soapy. Appearance: Crystal clear pale yellow body with no head. Taste: Oh wow, there is a definite lychee flavor at first and a little citrus at the end. Subtle dry apple throughout. Pleasant balance between sweet and dry. Palate: Light body. A little sticky. Short, acidic, citrus-forward finish. Overall: Pretty typical cider all around, except for that lychee flavor which was quite nice and refreshing.
