2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Sampled from bottle shared with some random strangers (and they payed, nice haha, thanks!) @ Drinkers Pub, Eindhoven. Hazy a bit pale yellow golden color, virtually no head. Smell and taste remind me of the peel of overripe, shrinked apples. And too sweet. At the same time some pear and floral influences come through. Medium dry finish indeed. Meh, not one of my favourites.

Rating the sweet one. Hope it's the same thing. Slightly cloudy and hazy yellow. Deep fruity and thick.

Damn, this is Janet’s Jungle Juice! Lovely fruity aroma, sweet. Beautifully mellow fruity body. A heavenly cider, goes down like fruit juice.

2.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Bag in box @ JDW Shrewsbury Hotel Cider Fest July 14. Pours hazy yellow. Quite a harsh taste, its fruitiness seems masked by an acidic, sour almost chemical taste. Bizarre. Nowhere near as soft, fruity & drinkable as previous Hecks ciders I’ve had. Disappointing.

Cask @ Gastropub Tuulensuu. Rated on 09.10.2010
Aroma is slightly sour with apples, some earthy and leathery notes and hints of fruit sugar. Flavour is slightly sour with green apples, leathery notes and some fruit sugar. Finishes acidic. My first real cider, nice but could be even more sour.
