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. 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.

This is hands down one of my favorite seasonal ciders. Not too sweet, not syrupy. Refreshing and exotic. A little floral, but doesnít have that perfume flavor that a lot of florals do. The aftertaste is the best part about this cider. Delicious.

Bottle thanks to Everett. Pours a clear gold with small frothy white head that diminishes to nothing. The aroma is citrus, floral and apple skin. Thin mouthfeel with flat apple and metallic finish. Meh

Aurelius (4062) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - JUN 24, 2014
Pale, champagne colored, bubbly. Standard longneck - itís hard to tell the variants apart. The Pufnstuf trees are different without distinction. Sweet aroma, with an odd florality - I pick up some fresh peppercorn volatiles in there as well. Sweet, very sweet. Oddly fruity, and I get some peppercorn notes in the flavor profile as well. Light body, finish gets a little clingy. Ok, but not going for seconds. ABC, Bull Run.

PorterPounder (5369) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - JUN 17, 2014
Tallahassee, Fl - Publix Supermarket - Blairstone - 12 oz bottle. Sparkling medium golden pour, no discernible head. Aroma has some tropical fruit accents, a touch of apple juice. Crisp flavor, nice mellow apple fruitness, a touch of pear sweetness, just a hint of some unknown spice - must be elderflower. Nice crisp mouthfeel. Very refreshing.

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

nearbeer (3631) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - JUN 8, 2014
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 from Bishop Cider. Light pour. Aroma is light and floral. Taste is definitely showcasing the elderflower, sweet, and apple. Floral finish.

Bottle. Aroma is floral, pollen, champagne and dry yeast. Flavor is sweet fruit with a big floral sweetness. Finishes sweet. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
