COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This is a light cider with a creamy texture, a yeasty lager aroma, and strong fresh apple characteristics with hints of caramel and orange. It has balanced acidity and is slow-fermented with select lager yeast. It is classified as an unfiltered craft cider, thanks to its sur lees body and bouquet (similar to quality Champagne).

2013-07-14. Hazy pastel yellow body not much of a head. Aroma is pleasantly fruity, apples, sweet base. Flavour is pleasantly sweet and fruity, nice tart apple acidity balances it. Smooth average to light bodied palate, modest carbonation. Lovely stuff! It is a touch too sweet at times but is ridiculously quaffable. I quite liked it, not entirely sure specifically why. On tap at Rhino Summer Beer Festival, Toronto

[5587-20130714] Tap. Sweet applesauce aroma. Hazy, pale yellow body with a quick foamy white head. Sweet apple juicy flavour. Medium body is extremely sweet. Like juice, this dangerously drinkable. (7/3-/8/4/15) 3.7
(Summer Beer Festival @ The Rhino, Toronto, ON)

On tap at BarVolo, Toronto. Clear straw. Aroma is white wine, pear. Flavour is pear, demisec. If youd told me this was a perry Id have believed you. Really nice.

blankboy (6277) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 29, 2013
Bottle at The Rhino Summer Beer Festival 2013. Pours a clear pale yellow-gold with a spare diminishing bubbly white head. Aroma: This smells great! Lots of sweet fresh apples, a bit tart -- just gorgeous. Lovely flavour follows, its sweet but not too sweet and crazy drinkable. Average bodied. Well done, one of the best Ciders Ive ever had.

Slightly hazy pale golden pour. The aroma is very aromatic. Lots of apple skin, soft tartness but balanced by a light sweetness. Apple and pear aromas with a touch of soft spice. Very quaffable and refreshing.
