(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.

3.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
2010 vintage. Pale gold, no lasting head to speak of. Nose is sour apples, acidic notes, yeast, wooden notes. The taste is less complex than the nose would suggest - mainly acidic apples, with some wooden-yeasty undertones. It’s good, but not great.
