2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
750mL Bottle. Thanks, Sarah. Weak apple juice and cooked applesauce aroma. Flavors play soft, easy and cheap. A corky mushy apple juice segues into a tannic, fake-tasting caramel notion. This feels like the Woodchuck of French cidre. Sweet, cooked, and bland. Lacking the proper depth given by the right apples and the right production process.

This is without question the best tasting cider that I have found for the money. I pay $6.49 +CRV for it and it is worth every penny. I’d drink it every day if I could afford it. It is light, but not too light, crisp and apple-tasting without even approaching the Jolly Rancher realm, is low alcohol content so I can drink a whole bottle in an evening without getting messed up. It is beautiful to look at, it tastes just like it is supposed to and just like the ciders I drank in France. All in all, it’s awesome.

750mL bottle at Schilling, pours a fairly clear golden blonde with a small white head. Nose brings out a complex mix of syrup, barnyard notes and a touch of funk. Flavour isn’t as sweet, with some light farmhouse notes, light sweetness and oak. Complex and well-rounded. Really nice stuff, especially for the price point.

Draft - Peel and some baked apple funk. Clear gold with a decent white head. Nice apple and some good peel notes without tannins and dryness. Solid.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Taster at Mile High Wine and Spirits. Pour is clear golden with a small white head and decent lacing. Green apples, light honey, straw and some rubber notes in the aroma. Taste bring more pear, some straw, white grapes with a lingering rubber note on the backend. Light body with high carbonation. Meh.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Pours a deep gold with a very brief head and a lot of visible carbonation. Nose is Golden Delicious apple, honey, yeast, pastry, and nutmeg. On the tongue, I don’t know that I’d call that ’brut’, exactly -- but damn, it’s good. Bright golden and green apple flavor, some apple peel, a touch of honeyed sweetness, crisp pastry notes, nutmeg, and allspice. A long, complete finish brings it together nicely. Quite good.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Corked and caged 750ml bottle into a glass. Clean dark hay pour, a bit lighter than apple juice. Nice light carbonation. Aroma is sweet, lightly tart, earthy and a bit musty. Taste is sugary, tart green apples, dry, juicy. Lingering earthiness and lightly artificial sweetener finish.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
750ml bottle picked up at The Grapevine
Pours clear golden with a small off-white head that dissipates quickly. Aroma of ripe apples, earthy and sugar. Taste is ripe apples, tart apple skins with a dry finish, sweet aftertaste
Decent but wasn’t as refreshing and crisp as I had hoped for on this hot day.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Musty apple aroma. Appearance is yellow orange with a sparkling head. Taste has apple notes, but also has a unique flavor almost pear like. Balance is semisweet. Mouthfeel is medium full with sparkling carbonation. Tannins are present. Kind of a chloraseptic after taste. Overall, it's unique. I'm not a fan that they added caramel coloring which gives it a fake color. It is quite drinkable though.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Aroma - it has a definite farmhouse yeast quality about it, and of course the apple tartness you’d expect
Appearance - body is gold; very clean and clear, a champagne look about it, there is a fair amount of nucleation; the head doesn’t last long and fizzles out fast.
Taste - there is an earthy apple quality about this beer, a slight farmhouse yeast
Palate - is light; the texture thin; the carbonation and lively; the finish is dry and abrupt
