3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottled. Poured a healthy shade of medium golden with nothing sticking around for head. The aroma picked up meaty apples along with tart apple skins and peppery, Champagn-ey yeast.. fresh and engaging. The flavor found more crisp, meaty apples at the core, with prickly skins, peppery notes, and light white vinous notes around.. finished with tangy apples and complementary spice.. really tasty! Medium-bodied, crisp, and tangy on the palate with low carbonation.. good feel and flow.. this was great!

I tried this at a beer festival and kept going back for more. I usually do not care for hard ciders or beer flavored by fruits, but I think this is one of the best ciders out there. It pours a beautiful cloudy gold. It is very carbonated and the fresh taste of apples is not overpowering. It is very sweet, so more than one might cause a pounding headache if you cannot tolerate too much sugar.

Really sweet and totally immersive with the apple flavors. It very crisp with almost a cinnamon flavor. One of the best.

651mL. Pours a full haze peach juice with no foam. Nose is heavy apple sauce, cinnamon, peach, pear. Taste similar with chunky apple sauce and lactic sourness in the back end. I love this cidery. Excellent sweet ciders.

13 Nov 2012, bottle. light yellow, clear, some floating sediment, occasional bubbles. nose is like fresh pulp apple juice. thin body and moderately fizzy. crisp up front. this really reminds me of unpasteurized apple cider as far as the flavor is concerned. it has the typical mass produced cider flavor with really nice, deeper apple flavors. pretty decent. couldn’t pay $7 a bottle regularly for a cider but this is nice.

Bottle. Pours a murky pale amber with a few bubbles. Aroma has lots of apples, with some sugar and yeast. Taste is very sweet and full of apples. Hides the alcohol completely. Lingering sugared apples. Tasty.

Bottle at home. Slight hazy pale copper orange, no head. Sweet apple juice, touch of sherbet, lightest alcohol fume. Super juicy, sweet apple juice, lightest spritzy fizz, just a touch of balsamic over-alcohol notes on the finish. Pretty good.

Wow! One of the best cider’s I’ve had yet! Aroma was big and bursting with fresh red apples. Pour was a nice light gold with plenty of rising bubbles. Taste was delicious. Big apple flavors with just a hint of must..Light carbonation and deliciously sweet and sticky apple finish. Not enough can be said about this cider!

Bottle from BeerHive, Edinburgh 291012
Golden orange, slight haze, thin bubbly head that dissipates
Aroma - sweet natural apple nose, sweet and juicy, fairly intense, really like real sweet apples
Taste - juicy sweet apples, freshly squeezed apple, so juicy, no harsh bitterness, no harsh acidity - not much else but the apple flavour is great.
Palate - soft carb, thinnish body, slightly oily. Sweet palate. Finish has no astringency like other ciders, sweet juicy apple, great.
Overall - The sweetness does start to build up to be a bit much if you go through a whole bottle, but it is a great tasting cider so it’s best to share. It’s not complex but has such a good apple taste. I really enjoyed this - tastes far more of apple than UK ciders

Rated relative to real, non-alcoholic apple cider. All the characteristics of apple cider with some fizz. This one is pretty good, but the 6% alcohol kills the cider flavor and makes it TOO thin. I’ve never made cider, but I think that ~3% would be friendly to the apples and retain the thickness, but still giving a fizzy, carbonated drink.
