1.7 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
500ml bottle (Rimi, Tallinn) at 4.5%
Initially, a pretty rank aroma, smells like the raw cooking dough for some cinnamonny buns. Pale pinky yellow, in a clear glass bottle, what a nightmare. Aroma improves, the rawness fades, and it reminds me more of mulled cider later. Damn, I’d like a glass of James’ excellent mulled cider right now, rather than this crap. Taste similar to the aroma, pissy sweet fizzy industrial cider, mixed with some cinnamon, and other cakey spices. Finish is packed with artificial sweetener. Yeugh, most unpleasant cider. Damn you admins for forcing me to rerate this after my previous sample ~7 years ago was deemed unrateable!!! Fortunately, I don’t ever have to have this again. Hmmm, now what can I do with the rest of the bottle?

5 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 20/20
Bottled@wPBFIII. Yellow colour, no head. Aroma is apple, cinnamon and that’s about it. Flavour is not too different, but also is much more sugary.

1.8 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
50 cl bottle @ wPBF III.
Pours pale clear golden color with no head. Christmas-y spices on the nose, quite unexpected, some lemon too. Sweet pear and apple flavor, faint spices too. Not that good.

Aroma has ripe apples and cinnamon. Flavour has cinnamon, ripe apples, apple peel. A tad too sweet and watery but quite nice actually.

Tbh, not the best cider--it’s ok when fresh out of the refrigerator, but the ginger (and cinnamon, etc, but especially ginger) aroma becomes very powerful when warmed. Adulterated cider--but the underlying cider is good, so a point or so for that!

1.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 4/20
500ml bottle. Hazy yellowish pinkish color. Sticky sweet gingerbread dominates the aroma. Very very sweet, sticky, gingery liquid. Never again.

2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Bottle. Almost clear body, no head. Apple candy aroma. Taste is spicy with cinnamon and ginger. Sweet and only mildly tart finish. Probably Puls Õunasiider with added spices.

2.5 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Very pale straw. Nose is weird, resiny-chemicaly aromas mixed with apple notes and sweetness. The taste is very sweet with some spices. Sweetness becomes more pronounced as the cider warms up. Drinkable, I suppose.
