Light Apple notes, sweet, thin crisp body. Not a lot going on but a serviceable summer refresher. I’d have it again.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
A simple but clean semi-sweet cider, the apple character is juicy and pure but lacks depth. Lively carbonation with prickly malic acid washing away the light body, leaving faint notes of minerals / calcium carbonate to go with the requisite apple juice flavor. No oak distinguishable. What it lacks in depth and distinctness it partially makes up for in quaffability. Clear amber with a short head. From draft, sampled at Moa Brewing in Blenheim.

2.5 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Aroma: Heavy pear aroma.
Appearance: Pale golden straw, no head, no visible carbonation, clear liquid.
Taste: Sweet pear flavours dulled by dry apple taste, very complimentary creating a flat tasting dry cider.
Palate: Medium carbonation, reasonably light body with an almost non-existent finish.
Overall: A very drinkable cider for someone who prefers a sweeter cider taste, but with a drier body.

1.2 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 3/20
much, much, much too sweet. there’s perhaps a little more apple character in there than the worst ciders, but it’s just too sickly for me.

2.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 7/20
Bottle from Mane Liquor. I think the pears in this help override the mass amount of sweetness which comes through. Still too sweet and not much of a finish. Average

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 18/20
Lovely complex aroma of ripe apple, soft vanilla oak and some residual yeastiness. Good structure and weight on the palate but not quite as much apple flavour concentration as I would of like. Overall a thoughtfull and enjoyable cider
