2.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Visual: Sleek looking can, though text is slightly blurry. Pours golden apple juice yellow, virtually no head, thin ringed retention, several very slow steady streams.
Nose: faint apple juice and hints of white wine acidity. (3)-aromatic strength.
Attack: incoming dense apple sugars
Mid-palate: dense flavour, (6)-sweetness, (8)-sour tangy, (MAIN) red apple,
Finish: (5)-tart, dry fruity apple.
Summary: Decent structure but lacks carry and depth. Itís good in that it isnít overly sweet nor cloying. (Note: all numbers above are on a 10-point scale, with 1 being weak and 10 being the strongest)

0.5 AROMA 1/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 1/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 1/20
I cracked this one after a long days work and poured it into a pint glass. It got it when i purchased a large selection of ciders from the lcbo for a long weekend ( including thornhill, somersby, strongbow, molson canadian cider, waupoos, and mystique ( a quebec cider which i picked up at a quebec metro on the way to my cottage))
This was easily the least pleasant of them all. I opened it up to a smell of yeast and red wine and vinegar. It poured a spoiled apple juice yellow and no head accumulated.
The taste is a heavy lingering vinegar type taste which fades into smokey appleskin type taste. The mouthfeel reminded me most of spoiled wine that had turned to vinegar,
I thought at first it was actually sour and it was a bad batch or something, but after reading some other reviews i have concluded that in fact this is what it tastes like.
Maybe its an acquired taste, palatable maybe to those who buy it for its certified organic seal, or itís gluten free designation.
But as a young professional loves pounding back ciders, its something Iíll most likely never have in my fridge again.

473ml can. Yellow in colour, clear, no head. Aroma is sweet and fruity. Taste is sour and tangy with only a hint of bland apple. Flat finish with some club soda notes, not much aftertaste. A pretty dull cider, not very enjoyable.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Can, incrediably light in flavour. But the flavour is enough there that makes it for a very drinkable beer. I quite enjoyed the offering.
