4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours a golden apple juice color which is very clear and with no head though very carbonated. Aroma is caramel, apple, toffee, white wine. Taste is surprisingly sweet to the aroma, notes of apple, maple syrup, caramel, toffee, vanilla. This is extremely palatable, not dry or sweet but the in between that makes you go back for more. Definitely more of a body to this than other ciders I’ve had. Overall, great drink, especially for 10%.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
750ml, corked. Blue label. Dark amber color. Aroma of tart fruit, apples, smells like concentrated apple juice. Whoa, very strong. High acidity. A little too strong to draw out any flavors besides apples. Solid & rich body. A bit too rich and thick for me to enjoy, well worth the tick. (3996)

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Very light carbonation. Golden in glass, very clear. Nose of apple (surprise!), some light cinnamon. In the mouth concentrated Apple flavor,a but thick, vanilla, finishes with some tannin. Somewhere between a cider and desert wine

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 14/20
No noticed bottling date.
Appearance: Very light fizz on the pour, but this settles to a vibrant and clear amber color.
Aroma: The aroma leans a bit sweet with apple. I get no oak notes or anything else, just apple.
Taste: Okay, now I get it. Very light tannins with sweet apple and some vanilla. Definitely a desert drink. Definitely enjoyable! The finish lingers of apple peel.
Palate: Full-bodied and highly sparkling.
Overall: This is sweet in a way that I don’t know if I’ll finish the 750 without a minor hangover, but it’s very enjoyable. I know that many would likely scoff their noses at how sweet this is, but this would definitely replace ice wines and other sweet desert wines for me if for nothing more than the carbonation. I enjoy this for what it is, well done.

3.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
$17.99 a 750 ml bottle makes it worth trying, but uncompetitive with most hard ciders. Fine apple taste, but alcohol shows. Too clear for a "craft" cider.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
750 ml. Clear orange-golden body has some bubbles to sustain some small islets on top. Nose is caramel, apple and vanilla. Taste is lightly tart apple, oak, alcohol and caramel. Light-medium body is to the sweet side, has average carbonation and a touch of warmth.

75cl bottle - pours clear honey. Nose is sour apples and booze. Remindds me of decent champagne. Yummy and warming. This is good! Sweet adn tart.
