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 Vernor’s 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 Vernor’s. 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.

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.

Draft - Raw and slightly artificial ginger. Pale green yellow with a decent white head. Sweet cider with ginger, bad Soda like with nothing good of any of ingredients coming out.

mcberko (9325) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAR 7, 2015
On tap at Hop ’n Headz, pours a cloudy white with a small white head. Aroma smells like a ginger soda, with lots of carbonation. Flavour brings out lots of ginger with medium sweetness. Gimmicky cider - not bad just not complex or really what one is looking for in a craft cider.

On tap at Republic. Pours a hazy very pale yellow with no head whatsoever. Aroma has a decent amount of acid bite with a bit of sweetness and ginger underlying. Flavor is much sweeter with apple and ginger notes and a touch of acid.

$2.45 can, Wine Warehouse. Slightly hazy golden, no head. Smells of ginger and fruit. Tastes of dirty ginger root and juice.
