The Lure:
Cheesy apples in a light but authentic cidery aroma. Color is an unattractive hay yellow doused in water.

The Festivities:
Tart apple peels drown in a soda-like sweet fizz. Quite watery moments, it does its job nonetheless, which is to quench and nothing more.

This one needs a can.

Pours a sparkling pale gold color. Pretty good aroma of baked apples. The flavor is less interesting than the aroma though, you can feel the apples and some dryness but not the baked apple quality of the aroma.

Very pale, highly carbonated cider. Aroma is slightly sweet, a bit acidic with a light buttery character. Flavour is like crisp Granny Smith apples. Bright malic acid tartness. Pretty simple, but refreshing cider.

Clear cider, very pale. Pleasant apple aroma and taste. Refreashing, but nothing exceptional.

Bottle. Extremely clear, very pale, nearly colorless body, just a hint of yellow...decent apple/white wine nose indicates a bit more alcohol than there actually is...apple soda flavor seriously disappoints, though, very sweet, boring and commercial. I’m about done with trying these crappy commercial ciders for a while...

Big apple aroma, palest cider I’ve seen, lots of bubbles. Crisp apple taste, spritzy, light and soapy. Ordinary.

Boutip (5898) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - SEP 27, 2004
Bottle: Poured a bubbly very light yellow liquid. Lots of carbonation in this one. Aroma is very sweet with no dryness. Taste is very light, refreshing and kind of sweet. Easy to drink and very refreshing but nothing to rock my limited knowledge of cider.

Appearance is clear light-pear juice. Aroma is moderately sweet, apple-pear. Taste is medium sweet, apply, moderately dry finish. Light body, moderately fizzy, minimal syrup. Pleasant for what it is, accessible.

Pleasing apple aroma (go figure). Very pale with thin head that dissipates immediately. Initially sweet but fades to tartness quickly in a short burst of flavour. Carbonation is very high and mouthfeel rather watery. On tap at Le Va et Vient.
