aroma is light but fruity, appearance is near clear with a little yellowing green tint, taste is tart green apple, palate lingers slightly of green apples overall good cider offering for Cigar City looking forward to more!

Pours a clear golden with no head at all. To be expected from a cider. Sliced red apple bouquet. Wet and a little crisp. Fresh apple with the fist pull into the mouth, but turns quickly to a flavor that approximates what rotting apples smell like.

Notes are clearish yellow golden, no head or lace. Notes are sour apple jolly ranchers, wood, apple laffy taffy. So easy going, right amount of puckeryness. Awesome shit.

Poured a pale gold from the tap with aromas of green jolly rancher apples and light hay. Flavors are the same light sourness not mouth puckering but decent overall.

Tap sample. Poured hazy pale color with a minimal white head that diminished quickly with minimal lacing. Moderate aroma of tart apple. Light to medium body with a dry texture and soft carbonation. Medium to heavy tart apple flavor with a medium to heavy tart & sour finish of moderate duration. My expectations were met.

On draft at Cigar City. Pours a clear yellow with a white head and almost green highlights. Maybe that’s my imagination, though. Nose smells of straight up green jolly rancher- apple, sweetness, sugary sour/ tart notes, and bits of granny smith apples. Flavor is a Granny Smith apple meets a green jolly rancher. Sweet as hell with lots of nice tart notes in there. I don’t usually drink cider, but I really enjoyed this one.

Initial flavor is reminiscent of a sour apple jolly rancher, though not as cloying as the description would imply due to the very nice crisp finish. Overall a very strong effort though not as good as their initial offering.

On tap at World of Beer UCF. Pours a light yellow green with a sour aroma of apples. Taste is sweet and sour, lots of apples and sweet candy fruit as well as sour notes leading to a tart, sweet, crisp finish. Nice for a cider

Tap at Oblivion. Pours a pale yellow with light carbonation. Sour patch, sweet apples in aroma. Clean, tart apple taste. Nice clean cider. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Growler from the brewery. Pours very clear with only a hint of yellow color. Almost looks like champagne. Aroma is a huge green apple jolly rancher. Taste is good up front, then gets a bit sweet. I prefer a drier cider. Would have liked to drink more, but the sweetness was too much.
