Pours an orange yellow color with some slight carbonation that quickly dissapates. Aroma is sweet candied apples. Very sweet flavor, but of fizz on the tongue, alcohol present when swalled. Brown sugar finish. Overall, interesting taste.

Smells like, well, apples, as one might guess. flavor is apples, too, and very clean and not cloying or medicinal. Some sugary notes, too. Also seems a bit heavy, too. Tasty, but definately not something to drink a lot of at on sittiing.

I really liked this! Scrumpy’s is an upscale cider. pours a nice golden color with an apple nose that is somewhat sour. It’s an easy drinking apple juice, with just the right amount of sweetness. I found it very refreshing and smooth. I’m keeping one in the Fridge all summer!

Pours gold/yellow with a fine, white head. Aroma is mildly sour, akin to vinegar. Flavor is sweet with a very unique flavor. Very tasty and very interesting.

Gold with white head that dies away completely. Aroma is sweet apple, with a hint of rotten apple in the background. Flavor is sweet, fresh apple, with a touch of sour twang and alcohol. Nice carbonation, and a bit of yeast pokes through toward the end of the bottle. Tasty, for sure, but not all that interesting.

As a fruit beer lover, this was right up my alley. Poured a beautiful honey gold color and had a sweet aroma of apples, grapes and honey. Very little fizzy head. First drink was shockingly sweet, I had the jaw lock thing going on! It reminded me of a good Riesling. Very light and smooth. Easy drinking!

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
22 ounce bottle from Winooski Beverage in Winooski, VT (May 2008), served just above fridge temperature from a Chouffe tulip. Very slight fizzy head dies quickly, some bubble action continues in the pale faintly cloudy gold body for a while....nose is nice, very fresh apple juice, hint of tartness, but little complexity or farmhouse character....and body is more or less the same, much sweeter than a traditional English or French-style cider, if more "real" tasting than the typical Woodchuck soda versions....towards the finish there are hints of alcohol and some interesting mineralic notes, but overall this is simple and unsophisticated and only a slight step above those ciders sold in 6-packs that it seems to be trying to distance itself from.

Pours with a chill hazed golden body with a small fizzy head. Aroma is of alcohol, cinnamon and apples. Taste is nearly cloyingly sweet. Sort of like a cheap NA apple cider with some (hardly noticable) alcohol added. Syrupy mouthfeel for the 5.5% abv. Fizzy carbonation.
