Pours like apple juice. Aggressive pour and no head. It has some carbonation.

Aroma is odd. Yes, apple, but hints of grape maybe?

Taste is quite sweet, but has a good sour aftertaste. Itís a little watery, more than most ciders.

Mouthfeel is very very crushable. Itís little more than water. Very light...itís hard to believe this has alcohol at all. It is a little papery, like an apple core. Again sweet, but slightly sour at the end.

Overall, I think this is excellent. I donít understand the poor ratings. Yes, I would recommend this, and yes I would buy it again!

Twelve ounce bottle at Danny Bís in New Baltimore on July 3, 2016. Medium gold hue, fair apple nose, light to moderate apple flavor combined with something artificial. Certainly better than the ubiquitous Stella Artois bland lager but these commercial hard ciders never seem to have the robust apple flavor of most nonalcoholic ciders.

I found this to be one of the best ciders Iíve tasted. No biting the back of my tongue or acrid taste. No lingering after taste, either. Slightly sweet, crisp, not too dry. Easy to drink.

Not sure what cidre is, but it tastes like super sweet cider. Maybe I need a gold rimmed glass.

Way too sweet for me. Lots of crisp apple flavor and aromas, but just way too sweet. The body was nicely carbonated and lively. The cider left a dry, but crisp, apple fruit flavor.

Spab (3284) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 21, 2016
473 ml can from LCBO. Pours a clear golden colour with tiny white cap. Aroma is stewed apples, quite sweet with a bit earthiness. Flavour is sweet apple with a bit of stewed/rotten character and a little earthiness. Some dryness in the finish. Meh.

robinvboyer (4064) - Sturgeon Falls, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 1, 2016
This is barely cidre. Has an over the top sweet apple aroma and flavour, with loads of odd artificial sweet strawberry, and stone fruit aromas and flavours, with a slightly tart finish. Dorsnt taste bad at all, but this isnt cidre.

Tastes pretty good, champagne like feel on the tongue. Easy to drink but nothing too impressive.
