3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle from Taylor’s Market in Sacramento, CA. Pours rather orange with a pinkish tinged slight white head. Aroma could be cherry and honey. Near med body. Flavor is fairly tart cooking cherry. A little honey, but this is cherry tart. Nice drink. With time the honey seems to get stronger, and I’m licking my lips and finding sweet. Still seems tart tho.

UPDATED: OCT 31, 2014 Bottle:Apple cider-y, sweet apple skins, light honey, almost no notable booze or alcohol in the aroma or flavor. Very sweet, so be ready for that, but it’s a nice, delectable treat. If you love apples, you’re gonna love this stuff.
