Bomber. Not my favorite of the Scrumpyís lineup, but still one damn tasty cider. Orange are raisin are hinted at, but very lightly, other than that itís a medium bodied sweet cider like they do so well. Itís good, but itís not a need to try brew.

3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Aroma is apples and a mix of astringency/bad mead-like qualities. The flavor is apples, tangy fruit, slightly off funk and a sour/tart finish.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle split with my wife. Pours a lightly hazed gold with a medium sized white head. Spicy and vibrant on the nose, yeast with a bit of funky apple and a sweet orange note. Medium-bodied, a bit on the sweet side but itís balanced beautifully by the orange zest tones and bright acidity. Bright orange acidity into the finish, lingering sweet apple. Really interesting stuff, quite enjoyed this.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle from Whole Foods Bowery. Pint glass. Neighborhood kids cleared me out of candy, & Iím desperate for something sweet.
Clear, but muddled, dull gold, active body. Lingering sliver of whitewash head.
Smell is bright & strong, like a screwdriver made with Minute Maid-ish orange juice concentrate. Just barely a hint of apple juice & scorched sugar in the background.
Taste is sweet upfront, but more so tart(& even sour), with lots of orange juice/oil. Lingering orange/apple juice box blend. A lot like a mimosa. Feels bigger then 4.5%. Spiked punch. Not super sweet. Subtle tannic thing right at the end. Moderately strong, supple carbonation. Heavy citric acid burn.
Probably overdid it with the orange peel. Just. A. Bit.

3.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Fruit aroma and taste beyond the usual apple cider. Slightly cloudy amber color with modest head. A ton of flavor for a 4.5% ABV brew!

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours gold into a shaker. White head crackles and recedes to hug rim. Pit fruit and apple aromas. Sweet apples and toasty raisins front to back. Dry lasting finish.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
651mL from La Bodega. $6. Really excited to try the newest creation from one of my favorite cideries. Pours sparkling straw colored with hefty champagne carbonation. Nose is bit odd- comes across exactly like white sangria. There is a fruit punch flavor in there mixed with sparkling white wine. Taste is the same. Certainly not bad, but so similar to white sangria that you are missing the apple component. Palate is a bit too acidic for me instead of juicy and slightly sugary.

3.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle. Golden color, soft carbonation, very little aroma. Taste is sweet apples and oranges, not overly sweet. The citrus notes are pronounced, and make this taste fairly unique. Very easy to drink, interesting; nice. Worth having again.
