Bomber. Poured a lovely shade of pinkish orange with not much head. The aroma picked up tangy apple skins, pear, and a pinch of sweet tart.. seemed sweeter as it warmed up. The flavor found tart apple, pear, and lesser cherry skins on the front, with fairly sweet, crisp apple meat following.. finished with good balance between sweet and tangy. Light-medium bodied and engaging on the palate.. a bit skewed toward the sweet stuff, but still very tasty.

JK Scrumpy Saskatoon Cuvťe on tap at Marciero. 750 yen. It pours a glowing copper verging on reddish. Very full fruity rich Apple & light berry aroma. Wonderful. Medium bodied with a silky mouthfeel. The flavor is a really tasty juicy apple, a bit bready with a dash of berry. Not the most complex cider around but eminently satisfying.

Bottle. 11/16/14. Pours translucent red with a very thin red-white head. Aroma is apple, cherry, honey, caramel, banana, bread, alcohol, champagne (?). Taste is pleasantly dry and tart, but still sweet; apple, cherry, bitter apple rind, some warmth, toffee, caramel; richly flavored. Nice lacing! Surprising. Medium carbonation. Very slick, wet mouth feel; medium bodied. Really quite nice!

Sample courtesy of BiiruBierBeer, thanks Charles. It has a clear copper body. The aroma is nice with apple sweetness, nectar sweetness, apple slices and a touch of earthy apple notes. The taste is smooth and sweet and has a nectar richness to the apple thatís going on with this experience. Well off in the background is a thin murmur of earthy sort of fruity apple. Solid.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Tasty stuff. Itís a deep hazy amber with a smallish white head. Pretty good staying power to those bubbles. Sweet floral apple aroma. Some lemon. A mild spice note - seems holiday-ish, nutmeg, cinnamon, etc., but itís quite faint and nowhere near overwhelming the fruit. The taste is fairly sweet but stays away from cloying territory. Interesting sour, acerbic twang towards the end, which I donít entirely love, but it gives some extra character. Light, sweet, floral apples. Creamy carbonation. Light on the palate. Finishes a bit drier, though sugar persists. Iím really enjoying this stuff. Itís light but flavorful and packs a fun and interesting character.

HAha a Saskatoon cidre, seems these little ambiguious fruits are all the rage in the easter part of michigan. It definitely adds a bright acidity to the cidre that is really nice.

This does a great job with foam and lacing,
The smell is enticing with the apples and some mild spicing, cinnamon me thinks..
Tasting proved worthy. An abundance of apple, light cinnamon spicy.
So drinkable and tasty .

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Rating #923 - January 18, 2014 - 2 oz sample from Horizon. Clear, pale, fleshy pinky-yellow colour, fairly carbonated, bubbly foam dissipates rapidly. Aroma is caramelized apple, brown sugar, Palate is more of the same sweet notes, balanced by the dryness provided by the ripened fruit, mild saskatoon berry note and alcohol. Not boozy in the slightest though, very drinkable. Delicious.
