Tap at The Oak. Amber-orange pour with a small fizzy head that fades to nothing. Aroma is sugary apple juice with a hint of blueberry. Tastes is overly sweet apple cider. Just get a hint of blueberry. Strong green apple tartness. No way I could finish a whole can of this.

DuffMan (7627) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - APR 21, 2015
On tap @ Farmhouse in Evanston. Medium purple-tinted gold, average carbo. Aroma of apples with subtle perfumey blueberries. Fresh apples, light blueberry, thankfully not overly sweet, with a dry finish. Better than expected.

cheap (4486) - Beaver Valley, Beaver County, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 22, 2015
Big 16 oz can from vintage. Pour is orangish and clear. Taste is fairly dry. Not repulsive, just fairly dry. Does have some fruit in there to ease it up a little. Not bad, seems pretty decent for a high alky cider. Quite fizzy on the tongue. Yes, not bad as the session continue. At times, comes across like an alky pop malt beverage. Yes, not bad overall. A tad of vinegar in thar at times near the finish.

zach8270 (3802) - Henrietta, New York, USA - DEC 5, 2014
(draft @ Vander Mill - Spring Hill, MI) Pinkish hue to the pour with a soapy white head. Apples and blueberry in the aroma and in the flavor as well. A bit more tart, without the overbearing sweetness of the blueberries.

DiarmaidBHK (3682) - Lewisburg, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 24, 2014
Draft at Kalamazoo Beer Exchange. Pours brown with a thin head which fades quickly. Doesn’t leave any lacing. Shockingly for a cider it smells like apple juice. Tastes more on the dry end of things. Finishes clean. Solid.

deyholla (7739) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - AUG 21, 2014
Can. Pours a clear deep amber with a purple hue and a white head that dissipates to the edges. Aroma has rich blueberry with a bit of apple and a slight bitterness. Flavor has an odd blueberry and apple combination with a touch of butterscotch.

TheAlum (6193) - Aurora, Illinois, USA - JUL 14, 2014
Draft on tap at the brewpub (Spring Lake, MI). Pours a deeper glowing copper berry hue, a bit hazy with healthy blueberry skin tannic glow, some orange, fiery copper and frothy offwhite head atop that sits as a decent ring, laces small. Aromas are touches of pulpy blueberry, gentle apple juice and a bit of dryness. A nice darker, blueberry tinged berry sweetness. Initial is a bit fuzzy, mellow carbonation and yeast meet red apple, a touch of tartness. Depth from the blueberry shows a bit of tannic blueberry skin, a bit pulpy and gentle sweetness. Almost a jab of acidity, touches of green apple. A more gentle backend is a touch sweet, faint spiciness and yeast meet deadened mellow apple juice. Some gentle fuzziness, mellow sweetness and blueberry elements linger. Solid stuff, I thought the sweetness up front might interfere but it comes in line pretty quickly. A touch of firmer body, mellow nose, but a solid fruited cider.

bpar73 (625) - Bellaire, Michigan, USA - JUL 13, 2014
Can. Pale pour with a white head. Apples, blueberries and some spice in the aroma and taste. Nice bit of extra fruitiness from the blueberries without making it overly sweet
