3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bright bronze colour, fresh berryish hop aroma. The palate is less cohesive, with the hops and apple both clashing and being cohesive...not sure what to make of this.

Second review of this cider! It was okay, but it doesn’t come in a can at all. No meat scent, though. Apple skin, fruity esters, and some yeast. A bit of sugar, floral hops, and plenty of chemical goodness! I’ll drink it.

Bottle from a local Raley’s supermarket. Pours sort of golden perry with some bubbles on top. Aroma is melon/cider with discernible peach. Gotta love Galaxy. Near med body. Hardly any carb. Flavor is melon/peach. Quite smooth and nice. A little cider flavor comes along with time.

Stole this from brocansail because I was thirsty as hell and didn’t want to pay for it! Sparkling champagne pour with a fresh apple, vanilla, and whipped cream aroma! Only $6 at this bar, free for me. Sadly missing that excellent spoiled meat and sulfury chemical load that I crave. Sweeter, sugary, Granny Smith apple, airplane sized Chardonnay that I stole from the first-class cabin. Tried it a few hours later and even better warm and flat! Hopefully they die this blue and start selling it in 2L soda bottles at my local grocery store.

3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Pours with a clear, pale yellow hued body with minimal head. Aromas are of tropical hops, mineral, stone fruit, lychee, sauv blanc esq. Mildly sweet, white tea. Flavors are medium sweet, light sulfur, apple juice. Sweetness dulls the hop aromatics, still tropical and floral, but it would be so much better if it was drier/crisper. Medium body, off dry. Slightly St. Germain like (elderflower+citrus). Medium carbonation. Not bad, but could be better!

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle - Apples, some vegetative herbs and some sweetness. Clear gold with no head. Sweet apples, peach, some light tartness and a nice finish. Although nice, I don’t get the hops unless it is herbal notes in the nose.

22 oz. bottle. It pours a typical apple juice color with a disappearing white head. The aroma is nice with lots of apple a little peach and summer fruit with light florals. The flavor is nice and refreshing with apples, peach, melon. A sweet, fruity drink without much complexity, but good.
