"simple and straight forward but refreshing, aromatic and tasty. the alcohol was just ever so slightly too apparent, especially for only being 6.5%, but this would make a nice summer staple. just enough honey to notice, and tartness to balance."

This was poured into a pint glass and a wine glass. The appearance was the same in both: somewhat cloudy yellow color with a slight transparency about it to allow light streams of carbonated bubbles to be seen rising. The smell had some tart apples and some sweet apples with a slight oakiness coming about it. On the palate, this one sat about a light on the body with a fairly decent sessionability about it. The carbonation was definitely felt as there’s a harshness that can’t be missed. Overall, hmmm....actually an okay cider. I know it says to pour over ice but I wanted to see this as it really is. Though I won’t seek it out again, if I ever did have it again, maybe I’ll pour over ice to see if that does anything.

Bottle. Pours a lightly cloudy yellow almost green color with no head. A sweet oaky apple cider nose. The flavor is super sweet very tannic apples, sugary at times, a bit of vanilla. Odd. Not very natural tasting. Hmmm. I love me some honey crisp. but this is way too sweet.

Look, apple cider is not in my wheel house, but tonight I had a craving. Crispin’s "Honey Crisp" could almost be a chardonnay; it’s replete with apple, pear, and honey notes--and yes, it does finish crisp. Nice change up during the hot summer months.

Cloudy yellowish-white pour. Appearance of a white wine. Apple juice flavor, yeast character, some honey for sure. Zesty. Over ice, it’s mellowed out and less sweet. It has other wine-like features. Alcoholic for a cider. More zest. And sweet apples.

650ml bottle into a shaker glass; served cold. Aroma: Fantastic amounts of pears and apples. Exceptionally juicy; the smell baptizes the room. Not a lot of honey sweetness comes through, but there is definitely a massive amount of fruity juice. Appearance: Quite pale, straw, yellow-green pastel colored, hazy body. No head or cap at all. No lacing. Low visible amount of carbonation. Taste: Delicious, juicy apples. No bitterness at all. A teeny bit of sweetness, and a bit of tart flavor towards the back of the palate. Palate: Ultralight body, but not watery. Incredibly low carbonation. This cider’s finish is of medium length and ends on a succulent apple note Overall: A nice little find. I thought Angry Orchard was the cider all others would be judged by, but this one is a different approach that gave me some welcome perspective. Light, crisp, refreshing, and able to be minimally sweet and not cloying at all.

UPDATED: APR 1, 2014 Pours cloudy like a hefeweizen. Smells like fresh cut apples. Tastes like apples with a light alcohol taste. There’ a light honey sweetness. Nice mouthfeel. Easily the best hard apple cider I’ve had yet

Rated on 6-28-2010 (Bottle) This cider has a small head, mostly transparent/slightly hazy body, fizzy, and fast rising carbonation. The aroma is sweet, apples and honey. The taste is very sweet, honey and apple juice. The palate is soft carbonatio and this cider is light-medium bodied. This cider is very easy to drink, apples upfront and a cider I would possibly drink again.
