COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Harpoon Honey Cider adds the sweetness of natural honey to Harpoon Craft Cider. A full-bodied cider with the subtle aroma of wildflower honey and apples, it has the flavor of fresh apples and the lingering sweetness of honey. Like Harpoon Craft Cider, Harpoon Cider is naturally gluten-free. Its gluten content has been independently measured at less than 20 parts per million, meeting the FDAs proposed threshold for gluten-free.

Bottle shared with the wife. Pours a rather clear gold, a shade which reminds me a bit of the color of urine after taking my daily multivitamin. Smells much better than that at least, with lots of honey notes and touches of sake yeast. Medium bodied, more sake yeast and a bit of honey. Dries out nicely, a bit of honey coming through. Decent enough, and definitely better than their regular cider.

Refrigerated 12 oz. brown bottle poured into a white wine glass. Pours pale golden with very small white head and apple aroma, Taste is semi-sweet apple and some honey in the finish.

Bottle to plastic cup (shared with the Mrs.). Looks solid; a transparent gold with thin white lacing that dissipates quickly. Smells and tastes of apple juice and honey with an average mouthfeel. Meh.

Bottle, enjoy by 09/15/13. Nose is slick, sweet honey, lightly floral but more candyish than anything, leaning green apple with light mulling spices (pretty apt Glhwein). Sickly pale clear yellow with no head. Lightly-carbed medium-full body, only lightly sweet, the apple flavor is toned down. No bitterness or off-flavors. Super refreshing, kudos for a job well done!

Very light transparent clear golden color with white head. Apple and floral aroma. Sweet apple flavor with some honey flavors present. Crisp finish.

Ar: A very light floral scent that smells a bit sweet with a light smell of melon. Ap: Looks like a very nice white wine with no head at all. It is a very light yellow. T: Sweet and dry. A nice combination, but the sweetness wins out. It is a nice balance. The honey is barely perceptible. P: Quite smooth with a bit of crisp carbonation. O: This is quite nice. It is much better than the original Harpoon cider that I had ages ago (one of my first ciders, but it was a bit old to begin with). Great for the price, especially for its availability as a six pack.

Pee yellow smells like cider but with honey added fairly easy. Some grape skin texture. Taste is very grapey. Honey and tons of sugar. This is a very sweet cider. Deserves someone putting vodka in it. Drinks more like apple juice than cider
