From notes. Gold. White soda-like carbonation. Nice balance of acid, sweet, and musty earth. Crisp, dry finish. Medium body, slightly juicy, slightly soda-like. Nice cider.

UPDATED: JUN 4, 2008 Merritt Island Throwdown ’08: Bottle, courtesy TheCheeseMan. Pours a golden reddish color, with a fizzy head and no lacing at all. Sharp tartness in the nose, with big apple and some watermelon. Big sour cider flavor, with a mellow finish. Very true to the sparkling name; very well-carbonated and refreshing to drink. Balanced well. Impossible to believe this is 10%, there’s just no way.

Maybe my cider-philia is getting the better of me. Pours a crystalline golden yellow, with a steady bead coming forth. The aroma is sweet apples, yeast, floral notes. The flavor is glorious, crisp, acidic and direct. The apples are the star here, but this cider finishes very dry, with the essence of green apples, hitting you at the end. Amazingly, the 10% alcohol is virtually non-existent in the flavor, this is an awesome cider.

Courtesy of TheCheeseman, I think. Pours a light copper color with no head. Aroma is mostly apple. Tastes almost like champagne. Apple is mostly what I get out of this. Palate is a little dry, with nice carbonation. Alcohol is masked perfectly. I would not think this would have been 10%.
