A nice compliment to a warm summer day. Light in aroma and in flavor. A lovely lemon colored appearance. Refreshing and clean tasting. A bit too carbonated for my palate but still a nice cider to relax with on a hot day.

3/9/16. Bottle from the clearance rack at Five Points. I’m glad others noticed this is just an apple cider with pear flavoring and vanilla. Wtf? Golden pour. Fizzy pear candy aroma, sweet apples, light tartness. Weird flavor, apple, cider, pear candy, butter maybe? vanilla, weird offness, astringent, sour. Nah.
