3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle: thanks, Jeff! Extremely pale & clear body, barely straw with a bubbly white, champagne head that's gone in moments. Aroma is faint apple, honey, & some light cheese. Dry, even a little funky? Taste is crisp & clean with notes of green apple, honey, cotton, & a sugary finish. Dry & highly carbonated like a champagne. It's no premiere, but it's still pretty tasty.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
0.75 l bottle from Alko. Bright pale golden color. Aromas of acidic apples and pears with some raisiny aged cava character. Sweet taste of raisins and pears with refreshing acidity. High moussy carbonation reduces drinking to only take small gulps, overboard in my mind. On the other hand, if carbonation is shaken off, sweetness feels too high for the acidity level. Nice raisiny character reminding aged sparkling wines. More of a dessert type of drink or with cheeses.

3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
75 cl bottle (7,5%) @ home, bottled 17.12.2013
Vertical with Swing Dry Apple Strong Cider
Aroma is mellow with some floury apples and hints of gastric acid. Flavour is somewhat acidic with ripe apples, apple peel, hints of white wine and apple juice. Dry finish with mellow unusual spiciness, more apple peel and hints of milk. Also slight feeling of alcohol on some sips. A disappointment, too much white wine for my taste.

Pours clear golden color with a small head. Quite intense apple aroma, some gooseberries with mild wooden notes. Lots of sweet apples and hay on the flavor, mild grassy notes, gooseberries and faint yeasty notes. Strong carbonation, alcohol fairly well hidden. Nice.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle @ home. Clear bright golden pour with aggressive initial carbonation. Sweet apple and honey on the nose. Hints of vanilla and some creamy caramel. Slight yeast as well. Flavor is really heavy on the caramel and sweet apple juice. Some pie crust and light acidity. A mild spiciness to it as well. Pretty good, as I’d expect from these guys.

Smells like a sweet apple. Pours a nice golden color with very little white head. Tastes sweet but not overpoweringly so. Lots of sugary appley goodness. Nice mouthfeel. Overall, would drink this again.

750ML bottle. split 2 ways in stemware. dark orange appearance, not a lot of bubbles compared to most ciders. nose is on the sweeter side with ripened apples and some oak. doesn’t have that fresh apple cider taste, the ice cider added actually makes this a bit hard to swallow. lots of sweetness, not dry at all.will still drink it but not a huge fan.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
D’un jaune très très pâle qui laisse paraître des bulles qui suivent un tracé similaire aux boissons gazeuses. Des senteurs de pommes mûres, de fleurs et d’un air d’automne en quelque sorte. Un goût sans surprise, de pommes acidulées avec une sensation, une caresse minérale. Version à 7.5% Merci Jamie! (1077-170514)
