pivnizub (9970) - Bochum, Porúří, GERMANY - FEB 1, 2016
Bottle: Deep golden to copper coloured, clear, quickly collapsing loose white foam; sweet apples with a citrussy touch and some well hidden cellary notes; sweet flavour, light bodied and sticky… An artificial drink for plastic people…

TedE (842) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - JAN 31, 2016
500ml bottle into shaker. Acidic savoury nose but very faint. Clear golden cider, no head, highly carbonated. Watery with a (very) mild taste of apples. This is ephemeral. Slight touch of sour apple and sherbet in the finish. Slightly more interesting than tap water.

paganwinter (8) - Calgary, Alberta, CANADA - JAN 27, 2016 does not count
Smells like fermented apples, has a beautiful peach colour, goes down very smooth, fizzy and sparkling, refreshing apple taste. Good stuff.

Tap at L’excalibur Strasbourg. Clear golden with no head. Light dried apple skins, old white bread, light musty notes, light sugary and bubblegum. Light sweet and very light bitterness. Thin bodied with soft carbonation and dry feel.

Desverger (7338) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - NOV 26, 2015
Can on Norwegian Air flight from CPH to LDN (currently over Amsterdam) - pours orange with a tiny white head. Aroma and taste is medium to high sweet apples, lots of artificial and chemical notes going on here, apple juice, apple peel, sulphuric and acidic not in a good way. Not much else to choose from apart from Stella :( ---Sent via Beer Buddy for iPhone

On tap, sample. Pours dark golden-orange colorcolor. Tastes very mildly sweet with very gentle acidity. Tastes lightly of apples, not much of fresh apples but also not of cooked apples. Well fermented and the flavors mellowed. Some grainy feel to it. Red wine qualities. OK, better than most ciders I had but lacks freshness.
