375 ml (?) bottle shared with Capflu, Goldorak, beerbuzzmontreal, Boutip and DumDum at the Ciderwinder tasting in Ottawa. Still light amber, no legs, appears a bit thin...honey hints in the medium-sweet fresh apple nose...bit of sharpness and spice as it warms...average sweet-tart balanced body...not much to say here, really.

3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Translucent yellow, and tranquil. A pleasing mix of sweetness and spicyness, licorice predominantly in the nose. No carbonation, warm alcohol, spicy anise, and a dry finish. I’m not a fan of pastis, sambuca, absinthe or anything else that tastes likes black licorice, but this one I’ve surprisingly enjoyed. Makes a good digestif.

4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
(750ml bottle) Pours rather deeper in colour than the average cider - appears to be an orange-amber like you would find with an English Bitter. No carbonation yet it has very tiny sedimentation everywhere. The cider carries a very pleasant and sweet nose of MacIntosh apples and a white wine undertone. The flavour is extrordinary - a good balance of sweet, tart and alcohol with a spiciness to boot. A tad dry and thin for my liking but a very good cider all-round. Very enjoyable for a cider prices as agreeably as this one - $12.95. Would go nicely with a chicken or lamb dish.

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
As clear as it gets, golden hue. Not very complex straight apple, fruit skin nose. Slightly tart, not that sweet at all, very thin..A rather disappointing bottle. I’ll try again Todd!
