4.9 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 19/20
This has become my all-time favourite. It could be over-poweringly elderflower for some, but anyone who has hiked the trails of this grand countryside knows the aroma and taste are real. 10/10 in my book. Shame it is a little pricey per volume, but worth a try. Warning: You will get hooked.

3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Headless green gold. Beautifully fragrant tinned lychee and pollen aroma. Sweet and vibrant with the elderflower dominating all else. Mellow acidity to counter the sweetness. Lady cider no doubt, but a good one.

Pours pale golden. aroma of elderflower, orchard and floral. Taste much the same. A bit sweet but not too sweet and nice balance of floral and tart flavors. light body with a better (not too much) carbonation considering it came in a bottle. I liked it quite a bit.

Lightly carbonated. Aromas of apple (delicate) and elderflower (more intense). Flavour more elderflower cordial than cyder with pear drop hints. Syrupy sweet and quite heavy in the mouth.

You know, I hated it when it was warm but now it has been chilled it’s okay. Shame to use elderflowers though when they could go in a nice lambic.

2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
33cl bottle from Sainsburys Clear very pale gold colour with a thick white head. Certainly quite a lot of elderflower on the aroma. Yes, not entirely sure I like this. I like elderflower in something like Dark Star Hylder Blond, but not sure it works so well in a cider. Definitely herby. But it’s a bit sweet and it’s just not really very good as a combination of flavours and the sweetness is just too much. Glad it’s only a 33cl bottle.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle at a ChrisO Tasting - London. Pours clear, extremely pale yellow with a few bubbles. Hugely fragrant, like perfume, like a punch of flowers to the face. Medium sweet flavor with tons more flowers along with some herbs. Medium bodied with soft carbonation. Outrageously floral and perfumey and very sweet to finish. Somewhat artificial and just way too much perfume.
