I had this cidre while I was out at a restaurant that didnít serve any other cider. Itís very very smooth and has a fairly complex taste.

wilnatp (556) - Minnesota, USA - JUN 20, 2014
Almost too sweet, slightly dry. Apple notes. Tasted at Stanleyís Beer and Bacon Fest - May 17th, 2014 during Art-A-Whirl in Northeast. Notes were a bit light.

I like ciders if theyíre not too sweet. This one hits the spot. Not incredible, but nothing not to like.

A really big disappointment for me after I have been waiting to try this for so long. For me itís far too sweet, and the sour notes are quite unpleasant. Very little depth and is quite a one dimensional taste in my opinion. The aromas are boring and far too sweet once again. Horrible is served ice cold, gets a touch better as it warms I find. One slight redeeming feature however is that the bottle design is nice looking well presented and clean with exception for the pretty terrible plain bottle-cap I have to add.

Maltser85 (220) - Fargo, North Dakota, USA - JUN 5, 2014
It pours a golden color. Light sweet smell. Light apple sweet taste. Tastes nice, looks good and finishes clean. Not going to give you gut rot after 2 or 3, but beyond that, well it is cider after all.

Mora2000 (5527) - McKinney, Texas, USA - MAY 26, 2014
Drank at Big Texas Beer Fest. Golden yellow pour. Taste is OK, with some sweet apples notes and not too much else. Basic, but enjoyable.

It is spelled C-I-D-R-E and put in an ornate bottle so you know it must be fancy. It brags on the front itís made from hand picked apples but the back reveals that while it may well have a hand-picked apple or two in there it gets at least some of itís flavour (please note: fancy spelling) from artificial flavorings and sweetners. Oh well, itís a means to an end, I guess and this is a pretty tasty alcoholic apple soda. It looks like a glass of carbonated apple juice and smells more or less the same. I am getting a lot of green apple specifically and a good amount of tartness to boot. Itís sweet but not terribly so and the sweetness is cut by champagne-like carbonation. This isnít going to win any awards for subtelty or complexity but it does seem to disappear from my glass rather quickly so itís good enough for me.

Bottle poured. Golden color, lightly carbonated, good head. Strong apple aroma. Silky pallet. Sweet. Finishes crisp and tart.
