3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
No head as expected.
For a medium-full bodied cider, it is supremely smooth and oh so very drinkable. Demi-sec on the palate with just enough fruit to be playfully unmistakably cidery. Very clean flavors come through all the way, with pear and berries coming through quite strongly leaving nice floral hints of orchid and hibiscus lightly on the palate.
There is just enough alcohol to put a wicked little spike into your evening, especially if this is the first drink after a long day and just before dinner.
Goes on the Favorites List.
