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.

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.

luttonm (4519) - Seattle, Washington, USA - SEP 27, 2015
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.

a nice stark reddish color. smells nice, but more cranberry aroma than any apple. Obviously the taste has a lot of cranberry, tart, fruity. the mouthfeel is good. lingering cranberry for days

smaynard6000 (974) - Apopka, Florida, USA - JUL 6, 2015
12oz can. Pours a peach / apricot color with soft carbonation. Mostly fermented apple aroma. Mostly apple flavor with a touch of cranberry. Pretty straightforward cider with a cranberry twist.

BVery (9482) - Plymouth, Minnesota, USA - MAY 11, 2015
Can at Brutopia. Pretty good! Murky pinkish orange pour with minor head. Nice blend of tart cranberry with apple sweetness. More sweetness up front, with a bit of a dry finish. Tasty.

zach8270 (4022) - Henrietta, New York, USA - APR 17, 2015
(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.

j12601 (9549) - Poughkeepsie, New York, USA - FEB 9, 2015
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.

Draft. Totally hazy gold with Noe head. Aroma is weak cranberry and mild apple. Apple upfront with a mild mild sour cranberry toward the finish. Medium body with a crisp finish. Decent.
