3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle. Pours a crystal light yellow with fast fading fizzy white head. Aroma is similar to a sparkling wine, a little acidic, light granny apple. Flavor is the same. Mouth feel is light body with high, fizzy carbonation. Overall, a tasty little cider. Refreshing.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle from Keller’s IGA. Pours a clear, pale yellow gold that looks like a sparkling wine with active carbonation and no head. Aroma is fresh apples and yeast. Flavor is also apples and yeast. Tart and dry, but not too much of either. Sweet, crisp, and refreshing. Dry finish. Reminded me of champagne in appearance and palate.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Clear, watered-down apple juice color with champagne head. Aroma is reminiscent of a green apple jolly rancher, only less cloying. Taste is very sour to start, with vinegar evening things out from middle to finish. No note of vanilla for me here, but this is more pleasant than some of my other cider experiences. Mouthfeel is very light, with just a slight viscous stickiness at the outset. Not bad.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bright golden, mildly carbonated under a fizz-away white head. Aroma is vinous and heavy with green apple with a slight note of vanilla when poured. Flavor is balanced between sweet and tart, apple dominant with a splash of white wine. Smooth, slightly sticky, and not as acidic as some ciders can be. ~~~~~~~~~~ 500ml bottle from Lundeen’s, Sycamore, IL September 2007, consumed June 2009.
