2.5 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Serving: 12 oz. bottle from Wegmans Leesburg. It pours a clear deep gold color with a small white ring around the edge of the glass. The nose is commercial apple juice, slight earth, and cheese notes. The flavor starts rather sweet and then slightly tart, finishing slightly sweet and earthy. Light to medium body with average carbonation. The shifts in flavor are rather jarring making it a little unpleasant to drink. Not my favorite for sure.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
This is one of their better ciders. The aroma is of green apple and spices with some cinnamon in the mix. With a fresh apple taste as well, the earthy and herbal taste was bitter and tart towards the finish. Malty in a sense and very drinkable.
