3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Clear, and near colorless with no head at all. Aroma of apple juice and white wine. Taste is thin apple juice with a touch of wine. Smooth and refreshing. Mild and not all that tart or sweet, but that’s probably what I like about it.

Bottle. Pours a cloudy yellow with a small frothy white head that diminishes quickly to nothing. The aroma is apple and wheat. Thin mouthfeel with a tart flavor and apple with a light bitter finish. A decent cider from Harpoon.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
draft at Harpoon. Pours nearly clear with very little head. Nice apple notes on the nose. A bit of a green apple tinge on the tongue. It’s definitely dry and crisp. Finishes clean without a lot of linger. Not bad.

2.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Poured in a similar glass, you’d have trouble telling the difference between this and a white wine. The smell, however, is pure apple juice.
Carbonation is evident from the first sip, a refreshingly bubbliness. Starts sweet, but is countered by a very tart finish. Definitely has some apple flavor, but I’m not really blown away by it.
Kind of a middle of the road cider, but not bad.

2.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 7/20
Once you pour the bland, yellow body, it doesn’t promise much. Surprisingly, the aroma is thick of fresh apples and oats. The taste falls short of expectations with very little apple and tart with a slight bitter finish. Perhaps great for a hot day where you need something light and refreshing.

2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Sour apple aroma. Extremely tart after a mild start. Odd aftertaste. Little apple sweetness. Not smooth at all.

2.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Bottle shared by Spookgolds. 12oz from the beer store in Southampton, PA. Pour is very clear, watery yellow. Like white wine or watered down apple juice. Aroma is champagne, granny smith apples. Starts off ultra-sweet, finishes dry and tart. White wine/champagne/apple juice mixture. Sugary sweetness is overpowering, and I feel like all the moisture has been removed from my body. I’ll pass on this one in the future.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Pour is like white wine, faint yellow with some slight orange tint on the edges. No head and very carbonated. Aroma is tart apples, apple juice, and some light sugary sweetness. Flavor is a tad thin with sweet apples in the body and tart apple finish. Light bodied, refreshing.
