WheatKing (1245) - Victoria, British Columbia, CANADA - APR 22, 2014
2L bottle. OK the "New" on the label scares me. Clear, very slight yellow tinge, carbed. You know those fizzy light soda-like drinks they sell in supermarkets in 1L bottles, this smells exactly like the apple flavoured ones. Flavour does have some sweet cider, actually it’s much better than the nose. Sugar in there, perfumy, very slight tannin, even. Not really for cider lovers, though, way too sweet and soda-like, the nose absolutely kills this thing.

Rating #873 - December 29, 2013 - 355ml Can from Coop.Clear, very pale yellow colour, weakly carbonated. Aroma is sweet apples. Taste is bubbly sweet, alcohol very well disguised, this could pass for juice. Artificially sweet.

Boutip (4637) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - AUG 16, 2013
Can: Poured a golden color cider with medium carbonation. Aroma of sweet apples is somewhat fake with definitive use of enhancer or non-natural flavors. Taste is overly sweet with fake apple notes. This is not a cider I would seek again. It is a bit disappointing tasting all the fake flavors knowing that producing cider is not necessarily the most difficult thing in the world.

lotsalaughs (121) - Alberta, CANADA - JAN 10, 2013
grass, alcohol, pale, sparkling, minimal head, white foam, light sweetness, medium sourness, light body, thin feel, fizzy, astringent, long finish Pale yellow pour, strong apple smell with some alcohol. Light sweetness with strong sour. Fizzy mouthfeel and light astringency. Long finish is a dry sourness with apples for memory.

DeanF (1662) - Nunavut, CANADA - DEC 28, 2012
Okay cider with no real sweetness, but it has no real head (I like head on a cider, often hard to find) and a light gold colour. Good wood-apple flavour with no cloying sugars and a dry finish. Palate could be more firm. Just okay.

LOVE Okanagan Cider!!! Why all the drastic changes...bottling,change of "Apple" in the Apple Cider....yes it is noticeable, I always either had Apple or Peach!! Since canned,...prefer Pear! Why fix something that is not broken??!!

Ontbeertaster (2306) - Ontario, CANADA - MAY 7, 2011
Bottle, pours very very light, colour was almost white, aroma was of a nice sweet apple, it did smell ’crisp’ even. The taste was a little too sweet for my liking. It wasnt hard to drink but it wasn’t terribly amazing. It taste of apples with lots of sugar added. reduce the sweetness of this one and it could be a good cider

DuffMan (6462) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - DEC 19, 2010
Bottle. Extremely pale and fizzy, with sour-candy apple aroma, REALLY candyish. Flavour is more tame, with tart appleskin overburdened by sugary sweetness. Too sweet and artificial for me.

A lot of people have been writing poor reviews about this beverage, but personally I thought it was excellent. I really enjoy dry ciders like strongbow, but I also appreciate the much sweeter taste of this okanagan cider. It seems to be advertised as a sweet cider (and in fact this company makes sweet ciders, not dry ones) It definitely has a lingering taste and is very carbonated, but I don’t think those are downsides to the beverage. But if you’re looking for a traditional english cider, it isn’t for you at all. If you’re looking for a cool refreshing summer drink, then go for it!
