3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
On tap at Bigby’s Pour House in Addison, IL. dispensed to a tulip showing a slightly hazed, golden hue, with a modest layer of quickly diminishing, white head foam, and light spots of lacing. The nose was sweet & fruity, with expressive, cough drop-like notes of dark cherry. Light to medium bodied, with okay spritz to the carbonation, the taste was sweet, apple & black cherry, with a moderate tartness. Close to cloying, but a tasty, aperitif-like cider, nonetheless.

Strong cherry aroma, with a caramely hint behind it. Dark pour, but probably not as dark as you’d expect. Still on the more golden side, rather than brown. Tart-- the cherry really punches through to the tongue. Long finish.

12oz bottle. Pale straw color with soft carbonation. Aroma is predominantly cherry with some apple in the background. Big cherry flavor with apple. Sweet, almost like drinking fruit juice. Medium bodied. The cherry twist is pretty good here.

Black cherries in the front. Golden straw with a disappearing head. Very sweet with strong black cherry notes. Medium light bodied with a semi tart crisp finish leaving a slight cherry taste in the mouth.

Not a terribly bad cider. I’ve certainly had worse. The cider poured a straw color with a quickly dissipating white head. There’s plenty of cherry and cola in the nose. The body was lively and well carbonated. I tasted a sort-of manufactured, fake cherry flavor. I was surprised to find some lacing left inside the glass. The cider finished up sweet.

Tap at Draught 55 in honor of today’s thread about bad American overly sweet cider I bought exactly that even though I disagree that’s the norm. Flat cherry hued Apple. Nose is sugary fruit and apple. Tastes of juice, Apple, sweet Cherry syrup. Sucky
