Very refreshing and a little spiced. Nice and thin with a sour taste which is great for this style. Smooth.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Clear brilliant golden with a fast dissipating fizzy head. The aroma has some apple and boozy champagne yeast dryness with a green apple skin tartness. Clean and quaffable flavor with a calm alcohol dryness, lots of green and red apple medley, and a semisweet honey note. Pretty calm on the honey, and the probably used a drying yeast to make sure it wouldn’t cloy. Quite nice, albeit a bit girly, in a way.

Apple and roses aroma. Clear yellow. Well balanced apple flavor. Light body. Simple but well done. Better than expected.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
33 cL. Clear pale golden with a thin film of cream that endures longer than I’ve ever seen on a cider, and even leaves some nice lacing. Nose is earthy honey and peaches. Tastes of peach, apple and honey. Light body is sweet but has just enough dryness on the finish to keep from being cloyingly so. Medium high carbonation provides a nice tingle without any flareups. Yeah it’s basically a doctored fruit soda, but I’m a sucker for the peach notes in this.

(bottle - 330 ml) Very light gold pour. Sweet apple and honey aroma. Flavor is a good amount of honey but then a very unexpected and very appreciated mild funky note.

12 ounce bottle from a Wegman’s. Pours a clear pale golden with a thin frothy white head. Decent head retention. Aroma of apple, plastic, spice. Fairly dry. The taste is pithy apple, sweet apple, apple skins, mild honey. Thin bodied. Meh.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
This was poured into a wine glass.
The appearance was a light golden clear color with a carbonation that was seen rising at a decent pace.
The smell had a sweet to tart apple flavoring.
The taste was basically the same.
On the palate, harsh qualities sharpen against my tongue like any other cider I’ve had.
Overall, just another cider that I probably wouldn’t try again.

I have always been an unabashed fan of fruity drinks and although I love really good cider in the UK there are some cheap ones that work, too. This is one of them. Melon and apple nose, honey sweetness in the tasting, and drinkable palate. I found it enjoyable.
