Loose bottle, $1.80 @ Binnyís. Nice fizz when pouring, good apple juice smell. Very clear, no sediment in the clear bottle. Nice apple taste. Not much of a cider, I guess, but I canít find much to complain about. Certainly not dry enough to be called "brut."

Bottle from Whole Foods - Short Pump on 10/31/2010. Very clear very pale straw body with a small fizzy white head that quickly diminishes. Very light apple aroma with some vanilla notes. Sweet apple flavor with some vanilla notes. Light body with moderately high carbonation.

Bottled. Poured crystal-clear straw golden with tiny rising bubbles. The aroma picked up a blend of sweet and tart apples accented by a little oak and a faint hint of pineapple.. tangy and intriguing. The flavor found a little more of the sweet apples than tart ones (but both were there).. dry on the edges with green apple skins and related spices. Light-bodied with prickly effervescence on the palate.. nice, dry feel and flow.. I enjoyed it.

This dry cider is okay. Some apple and fruity aromas, light and crisp tasting. Not terribly complex.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
One thing that makes me awe at apple cider is its super pure filtered appearance. Clear and clean, real clean looking; well at least in this big thick glass mug. Perhaps even cleaner looking than pure filtered or distilled icy water. Makes me admire it while I drink it. Smell is very pleasant apple bordering on weird imitation background, but in a good way. The smell is at times instantly repulsive then turns your head for a second whiff, weird reaction. First taste is somewhat plastic. Smoooth and intriguing. A little watery perhaps, but most all cider iíve tasted is usually thin. Decent carbonation almost comes across like weak soda water. Careful, now, this stuff is more than 5%. Interesting sweet taste. Never is overwhelming. Has a dry wine or alky finish. Sometimes almost gets near soapy. Overall good experience, just I suspected it would be.

Sample from a 12 oz. bottle at Wine and Cheese Place. Tried it right after the Original. Pours a clear pale yellow with plenty of visible carbonation and a small white head. Notes of fresh apples and champagne. Light-bodied, with high carbonation and a dry, champagne-like mouthfeel. Dry all the way through, crisp and refreshing. I still prefer the Original by a nose, though.
