RobBestwick (659) - Calgary, Alberta, - OCT 27, 2007
330ml bottle. Sweet and slightly tart apple aroma. Typical cider appearance, light golden in colour with no head and highly carbonated. Sweet apple juice flavour with a slightly dry finish. Not a bad cider.

Bottle thanks to Summer. Clear gold pour. Herbal, watermelon-apple candy. Not atrocious (unlike these notes).

McWorta (954) - LUXEMBOURG - JUL 1, 2015
Crystal clear light golden colour, no head to mention. Aromas of candy and ripe apple. Softly carbonated, smooth texture, medium bodied. Mainly sweet yet not too clogging, pretty drinkable, yet a very light sour touch developping. Medium lasting apple sweet finish with sugar impressions.

Chrisís wife brought this back from an Africa trip. To my surprise, it is actually my first South Africa tick.

A bit of a Hungarian apple chewy candy thing going on here. Cinnamon? Not really dry, but not really bad either. This could have been far worse.

Fatehunter (1644) - Corbett, Oregon, USA - JUN 22, 2015
Pours a clear golden colored body. The aroma is golden delicious apples. The taste is mostly sweet with a little dryness, almost bitter touch. The texture is crisp and fizzy. Itís easy to drink, but a bit on the sweet side.

Meh, sort of average fizzy cider, fairly bland, muted apple, sweet up front and lightly dry in the end.

Where and how: b.330ml LCBO
Aroma nice, sweet true apple aromas, soft and pleasant.
Appearance :
Top: light white rocky cap.
Base: bright sunny golden look.
Palate : watery, light but coarse carbonation.
Taste: aroma promised so much more. Felt washed out with strange phenolic off notes.
other notes light, watery seems well suited for hot days.

Bottle sample. Clear and light yellowish with no head. Light aroma of red apple with notes of white wine. Sweetish-sour flavor of red apple with notes of vinegar and white wine. Moderate carbonation, light-bodied.

Bottle. Thanks rayaron. Clear yellow golden. Smell of vinegar and green apples. Sweet apples flavors with some tartness, quite clean but a bit bland. Light medium bodied dry aftertaste.
