I'm not a big cider fan but this Cider has a nice clean finish without that Apple syrupy flavor and I really enjoy having more than one ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

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 i’ve 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.

Light gold with no head but bubbles around side / Semi sweet nose of fresh cut apples / Light body, moderately carbonated and near dry, with a very good finish / Clean, simple flavors of fresh cut apples, skins, and cream / Not complex, but very balanced with good, fresh, non-cloying.

translucent straw with no head and light effervescence; clingy medium body with medium-high carbonation.

aroma: bright tart fresh apples with a hint of acetic sourness.

taste: fresh apples and champagne up front, with musty apples and a bit of yeast character in the center, and a semisweet finish.

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.

Aroma is very tart apples. The flavor is apple skin, apple juice and a mild sweetness, along with a dry finish. Kind of basic for Crispin but it was pretty decent.

Side by side tasting with Original.
Clear,12oz twist-off bottle. Clear golden yellow color. A touch of fizz. Aroma of pure crisp apples, gently juiced. This is the Brut, as opposed to their regular variety. This has more of a vinous, wine-like character. Nice fresh apple juice flavor minus the sweetness. Leaves the lightest touch of tartness of fresh fruit. Very refreshing. I’d rather sample thier cider as a blend of the Original and the Brut. 6,4,7,3,14
