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.

Bottle. Pours a clear fizzy white-coloured body. Sugary apple aroma along with some grape soda. The flavour is of a similar dynamic with some alcohol warmth coming through. Balanced apple tartness. Effervescent carbonation. A respectable cider all around.

Bottle courtesy of Hyde, thanks Derek for this rare treat! Pale straw pour, very slight white fizzy ring of head. Looks of slight carbonation. Apples and white grapes in the nose, with sweet apples, grapes, and sugars in the mouth. Nice legging, with a crisp, fizzy finish. Enjoy like a wine. Would drink again.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottled sample. Pale yellow in colour with medium carbonation. Aromas of apple blossom, a bit of caramel, and some spice. Very mellow rounded apple flavor, with a bit of white grape. Could have been a bit more crisp.

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!
