3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. Pours a lightly hazed gentle orange with a medium sized white head that actually has a touch of staying power. Big clean apple, a bit of sweetness, and even a touch of funk. Starts off with a nice bit of apple, a touch sweet, nice caramel note. Creamy and tart. Sweetness grows, but it’s not as cloying as most of the big commercial versions that just taste like soda. Finishes with a bit more sweetness. Really tasty, and remarkable for such a low abv cider.

2.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Head is initially small, fizzy, white, fully diminishing. Body is clear dark yellow. Aroma is notes of apple (including a few rotten ones), light notes of wet cement, plastic, and paint. Flavor is moderately sweet, lightly to moderately acidic. Finish is lightly to moderately sweet, lightly to moderately acidic. Medium body, watery texture, lively/fizzy carbonation. Some decidedly uncool funk in the nose, pretty uninteresting otherwise.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
750. I wish this was a different cuvee speciale. Pours a hazy orange copper body with a thin white head, and a consistent bubbly stream. Fresh apples, honey, light woodiness. Ice cold apple skins, tart apples tones, and a dry tart finish. Hints of sulfates that i could have done without, overall nice.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
(750ml bottle thanks to bu11zeye) hazy bright gold, soapy eggshell white bubbles, nose of straight up apple juice, light pear, sweet and smells really rich. Taste of apple juice/cider combination, lightly salty in a way that enhances the sweetness, no off flavors, really good cider. Prickly carbonation, great apple juice linger.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
The body is a pale yellow with visibly active carbonation and a bubbly, fizzy little head. The aroma is a mixture of fresh apples & skins with a light touch of vinegar sourness. The mouthfeel is light and lively with the carbonation. The flavor refelects the aroma with the addition of some woodiness. Refreshing enough that I don’t mind the low ABV.

Thanks to bu11zeye for sharing this cider. Pours a yellow color. I get a lot of strong apple and pear notes, with a light bit of funk. The carbonation is very nice and makes the cider very drinkable. Very nice overall.

4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
This corked and caged bottled brew from a bottle shop poured a small sized head of frothy fine to large sized white colored bubbles that were and left behind a semi-hazy strong bubbly carbonation orange colored body. The nice aroma was red apple and green apple. The mouth feel was tingly at the start and at the finish with a bubbly aftertaste. The good flavor contained notes of sweet smooth dry apples. Delicious and one I would certainly buy again.

2.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Very light apple aroma, and flavor. Sweet, but not strong. This tastes very thin, as could be expected by the light alcohol content. My aunt really loved it, but I wasn’t quite the same fan.
