Tallahassee, Fl. - ABC Fine Wine & Spirits - Bull Run - 12 oz bottle. Slightly murky medium golden pour, no head. Aroma has a hint of cherry juice, some apple sourness. Flavor is mellow, with some light apple accents, a touch of cherry juice, just a hint of sourness. Tastes pretty natural, not as alco-poppy as I feared it would bear. Crisp mouthfeel. Decent.

Good too and quite thick. Nice tastes and all features. A little not too sweet but still a good enjoyable.

Fruity nose with berry and apple prominent. Sweetness isn’t too overpowering.

Love the black cherry aroma and taste surprised to see it had a golden appearance. For those of you who remember Zima black cherry taste just like it. Loved Zima and now love Mckenzie black cherry

(bottle - 12 oz) From notes since it wasn’t rateable yet. Gold pour with a fizzy white head. Sweet cherry aroma with a hint of apple. Flavor is much the same. Black cherries mixed with apples. Sweet on the finish.

DocLock (7502) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 24, 2014
Draft at Capone’s. Poured hazy dark straw with ruby highlights and fizzy head. Cherry and blackberry in the nose. Flavor was cherry, blackberry, currant, with some lactic creaminess and a smooth, albeit not terribly complex, finish. Decent.

12oz bottle from ABC on Apalachee. Yellow pour. Aroma is sweet-tart and black cherry. Tastes are strong black cherry, sweet - like a fountain soda. Sharp lightly tart palate. I’m not a cider connoisseur, so no context - generally straightforward, but tasty enough. 7.0
