COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Our sweetest cider blended with enough acid to balance out the residual sugar, making it a very versatile cider for food pairings.Hints of melon and vanilla with a long finish.

Bottle. Pours gold-peach with a very slight head and some visible carbonation. Nose is honey, golden apple, peach, quince, vanilla, cane syrup, and honeysuckle. Sweet on the front of the mouth, with honeydew and vanilla predominant, the apple seems to take a back seat to that, as well as stone fruit and creaminess. I want more acid. Finish is long and has a touch of apple-peel bitterness. Good, but more tartness would make it better.

OldMrCrow (2113) - Seattle, Washington, USA - FEB 26, 2015
Bottle from Total Wine. Wow, this is easily the most fru-fru looking bottle I’ve ever rated. Bonus for the pink cap. Pours clear yellow, decent if short-lived head. Nose is basically Martinelli’s and the flavor as well, albeit with some rotting muskiness - melon, but not the melon they intend in the description. It’s really very sweet and lacks the power to substantiate that sweetness. More like having juice with dinner.

Cidertron (30) - California, USA - FEB 16, 2015
This is one of the most floral ciders I’ve had and worth trying if you haven’t had one. It comes nice and sweet with a brassy gold. Other than floral flavors and apples, there’s hints of vanilla in it :)

500ml bottle. Sweet and slightly rotten cider, just too sweet for my tastes.

radarsock (1112) - Massachusetts, USA - MAR 3, 2014
$7.99 for the 500 mL bottle purchased from Bevmo (Temecula) yesterday evening. Pours a fluorescent caramel yellow; thin, bubbly off-white ringed head settled up top. Aromas of melanoidin, white sage, bosc pears, fried bananas, wine lees, peach syrup, and Meyer lemons. Tastes the same with the addition of cashews, honey, vanillin, apple juice, and turbinado sugar. Acidic, semi-sticky, and sweet. Not bad.

bhensonb (12134) - Woodland, California, USA - NOV 29, 2013
Bottle from BevMo in Folsom, CA. Pours brassy gold. Nice, slightly sweetish, apple aroma. Near med body. It’s sweet, but also slightly tart. Somewhat mouth puckering/astringent. Not sure about melon, but it is demonstrating fruit notes. Exceptionally drinkable for a non-farmhouse cider.

krumbum (638) - truckee, California, USA - JUN 19, 2013
light sweet smells. light in color with a pearl-essence of red. taste is light and sweet definitely a light vanilla in there. Its light and refreshing yet it lack carbination that could add to the feel. Its light and nice the dryness just balances out the sweetness.

BMan1113VR (7898) - Los Angeles, California, USA - AUG 11, 2012
Bottle. Pours with a very pale hued body with a white head that fades to a ring. The ring lasts, reinforced by the carbonation rising up the sides of the glass. Some legs. Aromas are sweet and a bit sharp. Prunes, sweet, sharp esters. Medium sulfur, strong esters: notably isoamyl acetate. Grassy, lightly leather. Pear like, salt brine, pickling liquid. Some sort of vanilla or vanillin. Slightly sake like in its fruit and almost light umami presence. Flavors are sweet, not very balanced by acid or tannin. Sulfur. Dry apple. Kind of characterless. Sugary. Lacks complexity. It either need a lot more acid or a lot more tannin to balance the sweetness. There really is not a lot here. Clean, but not really good.

AmEricanbrew (6211) - Same Trailer, Different Park, Louisiana, USA - JUL 11, 2011
Brilliant light golden color/ fleeting white head. Nice tree ripened apple, earthy aromas. Light to medium bodied. with soft co2. Sweet floral blossom, ripe golden apple flavors-crisp finish--good

auerbrau (3182) - Peace Dale, Rhode Island, USA - NOV 7, 2010
750mL Bottle poured at CiderDays 2010. This has a strong big sweet floral aroma. Lower carbonation on a higher sweetness makes for a tougher drink to get through. I thought the overall sugar profile was then bland, which made this one less enjoyable as compared to the other examples from this Cider Works that I had.
