3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
This is a very unique beverage. I am not really sure what to compare it to? It was definitely good, but new to me.
Appearance: The most clear beverage I have reviewed to date. Perrier clear; that is, it’s barely tinted apple juice color. Completely transparent.
Smell: It has a nice granny smith apple aroma, that is sweet and fructose sugary, with a hint of tartness. Very gentle, sweet juice like smell.
Taste & Mouthfeel: A nice, crisp, tart appley taste and that is clean and refreshing. Juicy and spritzy; this smooth cool feel in the mouth is very drinkable. The taste is mild and easy, so it goes down so nicely.
Drinkability: This is not what I would think of when I want a ’beer’ (if you could even call this beer). It is an alcoholic Granny Smith Apple Cider and a very good one, as long as that is what you want.
Hope this is helpful.

Poured from a 12 OZ bottle into a pint glass at the Taco Mac in Douglasville, Georgia. The appearance is crystal clear with heavy carbonation. Has a decent but slightly "to bitter" flavor.

2.9 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Aroma is light apples with a very faint hint of pear. Taste is just that of a granny smith-- tart/bitter. Appearance is very light, minimal head. Smooth on the palate, very light, not too sweet. Fairly average through and through, but nothing off-putting for sure. A touch on the watery side.

Old rating. Bottle from Old Town. Pours a clear pale straw color with almost no head. Smells of granny smith apples with a touch of pear. Taste is more of the same. Watery though, not enough carbonation. Slightly sweet. Dry finish.

Pour out of 12 oz bottle, clear pale gold pour with thin to no head, aroma brought notes of sugar, apple, vanilla, some apple skins, hints of carbonic acid. Taste was slight tart apple into big sweet vanilla, apple juice, some slight sugary notes, finishing sweet.

2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
12 oz bottle. Pours a clear golden color with no head or lacing. Aroma of sugar water, apple scented soap, candy. Taste is kids’ sugar loaded artificial juice and cider. Dry finish of apple cider. Light body, thin but sticky texture, high carbonation. Despite the low rating, this is still pretty tasty. No way I could drink more than one at a time, but it is good. Very crisp and refreshing.

very good cider..sour as the name granny smith would make you expect
a bit low on carbonation- I would prefer more carbonation
a good tangy sour apple cider..I will keep buying this one..sessionable
I like sour beers so this is something to throw into a shopping trip as a changeup
I am searching for a good sour lacto cider that can match a flanders
this is ok
