3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours a clear golden color with a fizzy carbonation and short lived white head. Tart green apples, almost candy-like on the nose. Smells like the sour green apple ring candies. A bit of sweet apple juice along with some sugar. The flavor is really no different. Sour green apple candy, sugar, and a bit of apple juice. Light straw notes, maybe a touch of granny smith apple skin. Light and crisp on the palate.

2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
355mL. Pours a very light straw to near green with high, bubbly, soda like carbonation. No head formation. Nose is plasticy, not very fresh, near phenol character. Taste is sour green apple Jolly Rancher, tart, really no sugary apple component remains. Instead, this feels more like a perry with white pear and white grape juice tartness and muted sweetness. Tangy, fairly refreshing finish. Nothing really offensive, but it misses all of the things that can make a cider wonderful.
