3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
The aroma is very sweet with apples, yeast, and dust. The appearance is pale gold with a small but sudsy head. The flavor is almost like apple juice without any alcohol but it is very tasty. The palate is thin. Overall it’s good stuff.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Corked & caged bottle. Poured a white small and extremely fizzy head that quickly dissipated, no lacing, transparent, golden hue, and lively, fast-rising carbonation. Sweet, tart and artificial apple nose. Ditto for the nose with some sourness. Tingly mouthfeel and medium body. Quaffable and decent for the style.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
This was an unexpected treat. Pours clear golden with a large bubbly head. The aroma has musty ripe apples, apple skins and rides a fine line between being sweet and dry. Medium crisp body with lively carbonation. The flavor starts similar to the aroma and has a very light refreshing taste and feel. It tastes very fresh and clean with a ripe (not overripe) taste. The finish adds some nice spritziness. A quality cider.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 16/20
Buttery aroma of fresh apples. Slightly hazy golden color. Tastefully buttery flavor of sweet apples. The diacetyl works remarkable well here. Sweeter than expected, low ABV. Quite good.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle 75cl, a clear copper cider, nose is on apple juice with apple skin touch. Aroma is fruity, very sweet, not too carbonated, red currant touch at the finish associated with some acidity, very nice.

4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
750 mL bottle purchased at Total Wine in Roseville, CA. The aroma on this is absolutely wonderful. Extremely potent, aromatic. Has lots of sweet, cugary, apple aromas that are a bit reminiscent of apple juice. There are also some mineral notes present, too. Color is a nice, transparent golden body with a nice white head that is quite bubbly and long-lasting. Some really great legging is also there. Starts very sweet, sugary, with a ton of apple flavors. Becomes more musty, with some mineral-like flavors and some light flavors of pimento olives to finish. A nice smooth, oily mouthfeel is also present. Wow. This is an amazing cider.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Clear color of... apple juice, thin ring of head left behind after initial fizz up. Aroma of applesauce and faint funk. Rather sweet, a bit of faint woodiness, and a hint of funk. This isn’t bad, actually, it beats the heck out of most widely available US ciders. But ultimately it is a bit toward the sweet side, and there isn’t enough funk to keep it interesting. Still a nice change of pace, and glad it is available.

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pale straw color with a fizzy white head that settles to a lasting film. Nose is apples with a tinge of funk (maybe alcohol, but its only 2.5% weird). Light carbonated mouthfeel. The taste is apple sauce, apple rind, apple butter, anything apple except apple juice. Lingering mustiness in the finish. Nice cider but low abv and high price.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
sparking flavor, highly lively, great cider taste without too much alcohol still the taste of crisp apples is present all the way through, a joy to drink.

From a bottle poured apple juice clear with almost no head. Sweet flavor but very drinkable.
