3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle at World of Beer in Land O Lakes. Pours clear and nearly colorless with just the faintest hint of pale yellow. Almost looks like a clear soda. Aroma is somewhat sweet but not as sweet as some ciders. Flavor is nice and light, again not as sweet as some ciders. Overall not too bad.

2.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Bottle. poured a clear ginger ale color, almost like water. Head is non existant, small amount of lacing. Aromas of apples, bannana runt candy, and other tart notes. Tast is a sour green apple, bannana candy, cinnamon, and other fruit. Basically motts with a little alcohol added. Alright. Not big on ciders.

OUTSTANDING! As a home cider-maker, this is exactly what I try to make every time. Clear with microscopic bubbles, this really is a true cider, not that sweet cloying stuff we generally think of (as Americans) as cider. Very champaigne-esque. Now if someone would make a session cider similar to this the cider community will be satisfied.

1.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 6/20
Tap at Vine st. Pours curiously clear, like crystal water and no head. Smell is typical boozy apple with just a hint of cardboard. Taste was kinda the same; red delicious mixed with sour green apple, really dry, crisp, sour, boozy. Not a huge fan.

2/27/12. 22oz bottle. Clear pour, barely tinted yellow, close to water, with a fizzy head that’s gone instantly. Tart apple aroma with a touch of yeastiness. Tart apple flavor, sweeter than the aroma suggests, with more yeast presence as well. Not bad.

2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Tallahassee, Fl. - New Leaf Market - 22 oz bomber. Almost crystal clear pour, slight tonic water darkness to it - nice bubble action; no head. Barely discernible aroma, just a hint of artificial apple. Flavor is pleasantly sour with some nice Granny Smith notes. Bit of a funky aftertaste dampens my enthusiasm. Mouthfeel has kind of a tonic water-like bubbly spritz to it. Expected a bit more.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
22oz bottle, shared with Taylor. Interesting, nearly colorless appearance, just a champagne-like slight yellow tint. She thought it smelled like red wine. The texture of this is a lot like champagne, too... No wonder the ladies at the wine store were such fans of this. Lighter carbonation, with a tart sweet taste. I’m still not a cider-fan, but this is refreshing.

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Bottle - app. Vintner - I got this in August, but am just now tasting it. Pours a very clear pale gold with no head and few tiny bubbles. Aroma is faintly acidic apples. Taste is tart. Palate this thin, finishes dry. I’m not getting a lot of alcohol. This is not a complex cider, but it’s OK.
