Bottle @ fonefan tasting. Small head with short duration. Color is pale as water. Aroma and taste are light apples with some acidity and high carbonation. Crisp and clean, but very weak. More like a soda.

3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Aroma: Not strongly aromatic but some Golden Delicious apple and pear.
Flavor: Light note of lemon chiffon, pear with green apple and mineral on the mid-palate. Finishes with Golden Delicious and mineral notes.
Comment: Dry. Would work well with sea food. Good value versus a Sauvignon Blanc.

4.7 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 19/20
UPDATED: OCT 14, 2011 Picked up a Julian Hard Cider in one of their awesome 22oz bottles. The 1st thing that attracted me was the bottle but I was shocked by how fresh it tasted. It didn’t leave that slimy feeling in my mouth like a few other ciders and that 6.99% catches you by surprise. Was a pale and natural color and had a smooth and refreshing finish- I found a new favorite cider!

A nice light carbonated cider, perfect for a hot summers day. The freshness of the apples jump out of the bottle at you. This is not a heavy scrumpy type cider, but more a champagne style. Very refreshing.
