2.9 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
16.9 oz can. Pours clear pale gold with a dissipating crackling white head that leaves a ring. Aroma is fruit gone bad, sad to say. Taste starts out sweet before becoming quite tart. The rotten fruit present in the nose is accounted for in flavor, as well, but it’s not as pungent. Carbonation is low compared to most commercial examples, but still very much present. Drinkable, but not too impressive.

1.9 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
A crystal clear blend of peach and berry juice with rose water – intriguing to say the least. A steady stream of bubbles help support a bubbly collar. No head.
Dried strawberries and dried apples. Strawberry and apple angel food cake. A little too sweet in the back – hints of artificial sweeteners. Astronaut ice-cream?
Thin with the flavor concentrated in the middle of each quaff. Watered down astronaut strawberry and apple ice-cream. There is a harsh acidic bite in the back of each swallow which is rather off-putting. Rose’s lime juice along the sides.
Overall a rather bland and artificial tasting cider with berries added to it. How much real fruit was used versus fruit flavored extracts is left to one’s best guess. There are far better ciders out there, with or without additional fruit.

Not a particularly great cider. Starts off dry, but then gets a syrupy sweetness. Lingering chemical aftertaste.
