SpongeRuiner (725) - Michigan, USA - MAR 12, 2014
A nice clear red color with not much carbonation. A slight alcohol aroma. Tart on the back taste with a lot of apple skins and blueberries. A nice balance of alcohol that doesn’t make it too sweet like most ciders. Leaves a fruity sourness on the lips. Definitely has a soda feel. Better than most ciders but still leaves me wanting a beer after drinking one.

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 (5701) - 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 (471) - 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

thome50 (1031) - Boringville aka Irvine, California, USA - JUL 10, 2014
Can from Mike leftover from RAT XIV. Poured from a can into a tulip glass. Pours a murky reddish pink with slight white head that quickly dissipates. Aroma of Apple cider, wine, and some sweet cherries. Taste is very sweet but not cloyingly so. Nice apple presence that doesn’t feel artificial with the berry coming in at the end. Overall, very thirst quenching but I get that "I’m going to have a raging headache tomorrow" feeling if I drink a whole can.

Aroma is apples, berries and slight musty notes. The flavor is apples, berries, mild/medium sweetness and a long and tart finish.

574deadzone (1040) - North Central, Indiana, USA - MAY 11, 2014
Pint can. Pours a darker blush color with a quickly forming eggshell head that immediately drops to a ring, leaving a couple spots of lace and an actively carbonated body. Nose involves nice floral and lightly yeasty notes, some apple skin, some light berries, maybe a light touch of spice. Fairly sweet, quite tart. Light bodied, active, with a drying tartness on the end. Pretty decent, quenching with all the tartness. Nice for warmer weather.

Sample at Buckeye Beer Engine on 5/4/14. Clear light purple color with no head. Aroma of sweet apple and blueberry. Sweet apple and blueberry flavor with a nice, sour apple finish.

tmoreau (2425) - Lombard, Illinois, USA - APR 3, 2014
UPDATED: JUL 2, 2014 Pint can poured to a tulip at Warren’s Ale House in Wheaton, IL., displaying a clear & very bright, rosy color, with no real foam or lacing, but some diminishing, light, leggy sheeting of the liquid on the glass. The aroma was notable ripened apple & spice. Medium bodied, with effervescence that was soft, but distinct tartness & dryness sufficed to keep the palate entertained, while sweetness, apple, and a touch of berry were the other flavor players. Apple was dominant, while berry was present, but specific blueberry nature was not that obvious. Alcohol was noticeable after the fact. Crisp, and very refreshing, nonetheless. Next encounter, on tap, and chalice served at the Beer House in Yorktown Center, Lombard, IL.. More cherry & berry to the sweet, fruity, and tart nose. Refreshingly sweet, but tart flavor.
