12 oz. can, consumed on 12-12-15. Pours a bright, brilliant, clear golden with many bubbles. No head. Most ciders don’t look good to me, but this one very much does. Scents of caramel apple and white wine. Lemon tartness in the flavor. Seltzer water. Somewhere between sweet and dry. Tart yet sweet apple like a Honeycrisp. Light to medium body. Lively enough. I’m not a big fan of hard cider, but this is a good one. Quite likable.

On tap at CBC15. Clear yellow with small white head. Aroma and taste has apples, light acidic and faint fruity notes. Good but not too memorable

12 oz can. Pours a clear, golden color with no head and just some bubbles at the top where the head would be. The aroma shows a nice blend of sweet and crisp red apples to go with the tartness from some Granny Smith apples. Has almost a candy apple sweetness to it as well. The flavor follows with the sweet and crisp apples up front and balanced out the tartness of the Granny Smith apples. Medium bodied with balanced carbonation that leads to a crisp, apple finish. Solid and tasty hard cider that is well crafted. Easily better than the mainstream Angry Orchard stuff.

EvanFriend (458) - Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 10, 2015
Apples, a bit of honey in the middle, sour flavor towards the end. Not too sweet, but not overly dry either. Pretty good.

Slipstream (2319) - USA - NOV 5, 2015
Pleasantly smooth and lightly tart cider from Tampa’s finest. A little herby chardonnay taste but not very challenging overall. Nice.

rdixon77 (1787) - Georgia, USA - OCT 23, 2015
Solid cider. Sweet Apple, a touch of spices. Nothing too crazy, tasty and refreshing.

Nekronos (3849) - Xalapa, MEXICO - OCT 12, 2015
Normal, nothing special. A little bit of peel taste in there but nothing much to say Refreshing too.
