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.

DrnkMcDermott (2800) - Downers Grove, Illinois, USA - FEB 26, 2013
12 oz. bottle, $2 single at Binny’s. And not date notched like the Sam Adams beers. Twist-off crown. First whiff is pretty yeasty for a cider. After that clears off, there’s some sweet apple smell, and a hint of berries. Pretty fizzy pour, with a head that’s gone as soon as I stop pouring. Pale yellow, though not as pale as the one Virtue cider I’ve 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.

12oz bottle - pours pale straw with quickly diminishing white head and spotty lacing. Nose is fruit and berry like unripe currant. flavor adds apple. Sweet and slightly tart but not overly sweet like most ciders I’ve had. Refreshing. Light body.

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.
