Very light and hazy yellow in color. Crisp, punchy. Sweet and tart, very good apple flavor that is not at all artificial. Trails off to a hint of dryness. Very light despite the alcohol content.

4 oz pour from refrigerated 650 ml bottle into champaign flute. Opaque, hazy. White/yellow in color with a faint tinge of green. Nose is apple and honey. Mouthfeel is thin, watery, and carbonated. Taste is sweet apple, similar to white wine. Honey sweetness. A solid apple cider.

(bottle - 22 oz) Clear gold pour with a thin white head. Honey and apple dominate the aroma. The honey definitely takes over the flavor, blending with the apple to produce a vanilla-like flavor.

This pours out in a lime almost lemonade color unfiltered making it opaque in some cases :) It runs a bit sweet with hints of honey and caramel. It’s a little sour :)

Poured a cloudy straw colour, much like pineapple juice. Aroma is of tart apples. Flavor is a blend of sweet and tart apple with honey in the finish. Light to medium bodied with medium carbonation. May be a bit too sweet for some.

Rated based on notes taken 13 Apr 2014 -- I think Crispin makes the best ciders, consistently.

Pale, cloudy yellow, flat. Smells just like fresh apple juice. Nice sweet and tart flavor. Completely masked 6.5% ABV. Good. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bomber. Aroma is a lot like sauvignon blanc with an apple character; after it warms a little bit, floral notes come out. Pours a hazy greenish-white color, almost like a sauv blanc but even paler; no head. Taste is sweet and tart, dry; honey is detectable in the finish. Carbonation is fairly soft, body medium. Nice cider, although 22 oz is a bit much for one person at one sitting. 12 oz would have worked better for me.

"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.
