(Bottle 50 cl) Clear golden with a rough, dissipating head. Tart apple aroma. Medium body, quite sweetish with distinct apple flavours. Very soft and pleasant, the alcohol is definitely there but yet quite discreet. 180506

A light yellow cider with no head - as expected. The aroma is of oak and apples. The flavor is primarily of acidic apples. An OK cider.

16.9oz bottle -

Since BevMo had many of their unusual ciders on sale, I thought why the heck not. I enjoy a refreshing cider that’s not overly cloying, and so far the two I’ve had from Weston’s were both really nice. Apples in the aroma on this one, but so is just a hint of wood/oak barrel. Almost reminds me of a champagne, but not quite. Flavor has strong notes of apples, vanilla and oak..much more present in the flavor than the aroma. Finishes with a slight acidic/vinegar like ending. A nice showcase of apples without becoming candy-like.

Bottle from Mane Liquor. Clear golden pour with a very small white head. Nice beads down the glass. Sour apples and earth on the nose. A little sweeter in the taste than expected. A touch of wood and ground apples. Nice stuff
