2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
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.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
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.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
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.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
(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.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
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.

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.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
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.

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
