GoufCustom (1296) - HONG KONG - JAN 6, 2016


355 ml can bought at Globalist Ltdís booth during the 13th Hong Kong Food Festival 2015 in HKCEC, Wan Chai.

Almost zero head and faint residual white foam which fades immediately; Fair sticky lacing with notable slight carbonation; Fragrant and sweet aroma of apple wine, with very strong ginger, soda, sugar, faint wood barrel and faint tannic; Close to light sweet taste of light apple wine, with strong fresh ginger, notable alcohol, light yoghurt, light wood and shades of tannic; Light body. Watery palate; Mouth feel is very watery apple wine just like the Gold Cider, but with strong raw ginger paste and pretty boozy. Some fresh apple in the background, also quite yoghurty. Quite good!.... Wet after taste. Spicy and boozy to mouth.

Comments: The fresh ginger really give this otherwise thin cider a big boost. Its flesh appale base is aleady solid, but somehow itís a bit too boozy on par with any Scrumpy. Refreshingly drinklable, but with care.

12oz can pours a clear gold with some fizzy head that faded fast. Nose has ginger, cardamom, and of course green apples. Flavor has a lick of green vanilla bean, ginger, cardamom, apple skins, apple juice, a touch cakey. Finishes mostly dry.

Very prominent and good ginger smell, very very pale color, taste is actually much more mild on ginger than expected... Hoped it would be a little stronger...too weak...need a bit more bold...very smooth and good ginger/apple mix 50/50

Can. Pours a very pale yellow-green with a white ring-head and a decent amount of visible carbonation. Nose is fresh ginger, dried ginger, a little bit of butter (diacetyl?), and green apple. Sour apple up front with a decent fresh and dried ginger bite, but it has that same slick buttery oiliness that mutes the freshness and crispness Iíve tasted on all the Schilling ciders. Finish is slick, distant, and short. Thereís a good cider in here, but I feel like itís wrapped in a dozen donuts.

Crazy light golden coloured body that is a light hazy straw note with a thin, very fast-dying white head. Aroma of fresh ginger, light malt, a touch of alcohol and way more warm ginger, just like Vernorís soda in Michigan. Medium-bodied; Assertive sweetness up front from apples, a light honey flavour and a bunch of ginger more akin to Canada Dry than Vernorís. Aftertaste shows a very pleasant sweetness, some mild malt, apple tastes, a hint of light alcohol, but a fresh and distinct ginger flavour throughout. Overall, a very nice cider with a perfect amount of fresh ginger flavour with a pleasant apple flavour as well. I sampled this twelve ounce can purchased from Whole Foods in Alexandria (Old Town), Virginia on 05-July-2015 for US$2,99 sampled at home in Upstate New York on 11-July-2015.

Gotta disagree w my man suds on this one. Mine had too much ginger, and was slightly medicinal, with very little Apple - sweet or tart. Not impressed.

Can. Hazy pale pour. Huge ginger aroma and taste. Just a hint of apple tartness later on taste. Pretty solid.

12 oz can poured. Pours a pale cloudy yellow with a quick fading head. Sweet soapy lemon and ginger aroma. Ginger ale like, with a much thicker body. Semi refreshing, and soda like. More sprite like than apple cider. Interesting, unique take on the style. Bonus points for being unique. Other than that, it was alright.

Pour on tap at the Republic SC, clear straw yellow pour with no head, aroma brought notes of huge ginger, candied ginger, sweet caramel, apple notes into a bit of vanilla, slight yeast. Taste was huge ginger, lots of apple and candied fruit into some vanilla, finishing fairly sweet, spicy.
