Good apple flavor, a little sweet, a little tangy, and with a nice slight honey finish. Refreshing, and enjoyable. Nice stuff.

DerWeg (1593) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - SEP 1, 2008
UPDATED: AUG 30, 2010 NEW NOTES - Very clear light gold with clean sassy fruity nose, taste tart wonderful apple and yeast, mineral, kind of like a good French bistro white wine - dry, spare and elegant. Vastly better. *** OLD RATE *** I found this medium-light bodied with some genuine flavors of apple, but a bit dilute and parching on the finish. Still a good drink, it just lacks the ’sass’ and flavor density of really good british cider. Worth a try. 6 3 6 2 11 2.8

Lubiere (12878) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - SEP 30, 2006
A golden bubbly cider with a thin white head. A slightly funky apple and gueuze aroma. Clear and bubbly, this lambic cider is quite interesting, with sour apples and Brett notes, melding well with sweetness. A bit overcarbonated. Medium bodied. On tap at KBC, Sep. 30, 2006.

Quevillon (2897) - Boisbriand, Quebec, CANADA - JUL 15, 2006
Bu sur place (20 oz). Beau jaune avec un peu de mousse. Très légé comme arome, mais bien. Bon goût de pomme, sec et pétillant.

Sammy (11180) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JUN 6, 2006
Drinkable cider as very strongly malted, with dextrin as well as sugar. Lace in glass. Replacement for ice tea, the cider never breaks through the sweet safety net.Bit of sharp cider smell but mostly malt.Apparently, you have to ask for this three times before they will serve it to you, and I still needed the local to almopst get out of his stool to pour himself.

jercraigs (9849) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 1, 2006
Deep yellow body with a tiny white head that fades away. Apple flavour with light tart acidity, and a dry aple finished that leaves a lingering apple character. Fairly decent mainstream cider with some character to it. Light appley aroma. Average palate. Quite pleasant. Servers don’t really point it out, so be sure to ask, I think this is available year round.

Gorbalev (3000) - Ontario, CANADA - MAR 6, 2006
On tap at the brewpub. Medium yellow, small white head, some bubbles. Some sweet apple aroma. Taste is kicked up a few notches though, very sweet apple taste - not tart at all. Body is a tad syrupy (could have used a bit more carbonation). Refreshing, would make for a great summer quencher. Like drinking slightly carbonated sweet natural apple juice with the added bonus of alcohol. A very solid cider and a revelation - easily Ontario’s best cider.

CapFlu (5101) - Victoria, British Columbia, CANADA - SEP 16, 2003
(Druaght) Lovely MacIntosh nose. Beautiful golden body. Sweet apple flavour which turns to a slightly tart finish. One of the best ciders I have had yet!

Oakes (15651) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - APR 4, 2003
Hazy dark straw; tightly sparkling. Very nutty, with apple skin and rustic barnyard notes. Better on paper than in the glass, though.
