3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
On tap @ Prohibition Pig. Cloudy golden orange pour with some white foam. Lots of juicy, fresh apple. Some sweet apple juice and baked apple/pie filling. Definitely on the sweet side though there is just a touch of cranberry and acidity to the finish. There’s a general good fruit character here. Might be losing some cred if I say that I liked this one.

This is some yeasty fucken cider, I will tell you that much. It looks like a damn glass of orange juice and smells like bread. This is actually better than most ciders because, honestly, cider just kinda sucks. Yes, French cider. Yes, real cider from England. Yes, ice cider. It all fucken sucks and now that I’ve said it out loud you can too. For fuck’s sake, where was I... This stuff is pretty good for a cider. It tastes like actual fermented apple juice and is a bit acidic w/ some floral notes here and there w/ a bit of sharpness from tannins. A reasonable person could drink more than one can of this stuff. No, really, even though it’s cider.

UPDATED: OCT 2, 2016 Pours cloudy apricot with minor fizzy head that’s gone in an instant.
Sweet apple nose with minor cranberry, biscuit, slight earthiness. Palate is fizzy apple with tart citric-cranberry tang, apple sweetness and dry finish. Pleasant.

Draft. Pours like apple cider/grapefruit juice. Taste is pretty standard apple cider but with a nice tart cranberry note over top of everything. Tart and dry. Pretty good.

12oz can from MA. Hazy red grapefruit color, mild carbonation. Cider spice and a little tart fruit. Smooth body, a touch of tart cranberry but more ruddy, sweet apple cider. Not great but drinkable.

(can - 12 oz) Murky ruby pour with no head. Sharp cranberry aroma overtop some crisp apples. Flavor is really well balanced. The cranberries and apples blend together and give a slightly sweet and slightly tart taste without being too strong one way or the other. Rather nice.

On tap at Barcade. Pours a murky amber with no head. Granny Smith apples on the nose, fruit. Medium bodied, tart acid right away, dries out into a bit of cranberry bitterness. Cranberry provides a nice balance to the sweetness, and plays nicely with all of the acid. Quite tasty.
