355ml twist off. Another fairly insipid sweet cider produced on a pretty large scale.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
A- Apples, white wine, grapes, sweet, strawberries.
A- Golden orange color, clear liquid, minimal head.
T- Apples, white wine, grapes, sweet, slightly tart.
P- Light body, average texture, average carbonation, sweet finish.
O- Pretty sweet and some notes of grapes and wine so it’s not strictly like drinking apple juice. A pretty good cider, although as sweet as it is, one is enough.

Sweet smell of apples with a standard cider color. Has a tart taste with a crispness at the back of it. A pretty damn solid cider for the price.

Sampled from a 12 oz brown bottle this cider poured a dark yellow-golden color with a small foamy white head that faded quickly and left a bit of lacing. The aroma was strong apple juice with touches of brown sugar, cinnamon and apple peel. The flavor was strong sweet apple juice, tangy, sugar and a touch of honey. Long finish. Solid.

Decent cider. Strong fake apple juice aromas and flavors. Sweet.. A bit sour.. Mostly fake apple though.

Sweet, crisp, and strong on apple. Very light tartness. Very nice and refreshing, but missing a bit of punch and sourness that would make it really good, but perhaps have a bit less mass appeal.

12 oz bottle- I’ve wondered if this is a real cider or alcho-pop... Not sure what the "natural flavors" are but "meh... whatever." Light, clear not too much carbonation. Aroma is more apple juice than cider. Taste is very sweet to begin with a very pleasing tart at the end. Were it warm I’m sure it would not be as nice. Over all a very, very drinkable product out of Stevens Point, WI.

Didn’t like this one quite as much as the Mad Bark, as it was a bit sweeter and with a bit less complexity, but had a nice apple and honey smell and flavor.

There is a surge in popularity of ciders these days which I think has something to do w/ everyone pretending they have gluten allergies. Maybe I am just a judgmental bitch though, nobody knows. In any case, this one of many alcoholic apple soda type ciders and it is pretty much interchangeable w/ a hundred others. That said, this is pretty tasty stuff and better than most due to a fairly high level of acidity, which helps keep things nice and crisp. For this reason, it is maybe not the best cider to try to impress high school girls but it will still work reasonably well for such ill-advised adventures.
