3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
341ml bottle - 6.0% ABV. Very pale gold - fizzy diminishing white head (3-). Mild but solid aroma - ripe apple, a bit tart, not all that sweet.
Taste follows - simple acidic apple, not sweetened, just sweet from the apple - a little warming. Light body, slightly acidic, decent carbonation with a quick crisp finish - quite good!

4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle via udbeernut. Pale yellow nearly clear pour. Slow carbonation. No head, as expected. Slight alcohol twang up front. Nose of faint apple and wood chips. Sparkling sweet start, lean body and a slim fruit finish make this a very drinkable and enjoyable lunch drink. (Lunch today was bean burritos, chicken tenders with a .5 pound side of crispy bacon). YUM!

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours a pale yellow-straw colour with prickly light carbonation. A little bit of apple flavour but there is also a touch of tartness. Firm palate and a little bit lingering apple flavour. It’s okay, but it’s pretty typical.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle [341ml] courtesy of GregClow. Pours a clear, bubbly, incredibly pale gold with no head -- looks almost like carbonated water. Mild aroma of sweet apples, wood, sugar and white wine. Tart apple flavour with some sugary sweetness, some acidity, white wine and a long dry finish. A touch too carbonated for my liking. Light bodied. Just O.K.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
On tap at the Merchant Ale House. Pours a clear straw yellow, closer to water with a hint of yellow than to yellow. No head. Big sweet apple aromas a touch of champagne yeast. On the thin side of medium, but with loads of very fine carbonation. Ascetic acid, little bit of apple, lots of tartness. Finishes with more tangy acid. Not bad, just rather empty and one dimensional.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle from the winery. Very pale colour - almost clear, really, with just a faint gold tinge. Aroma is mild with tart apple essence and a hint of off-dry white wine. Crisp, well-carbonated body. Flavour is nice and tart, Granny Smith and Ginger Gold apples, a bit of sweetness in the middle, a hint of the wine suggested by the aroma, dryish finish. Fairly simple, but refreshing.
