Pours a cloudy pale orange color, with an apple juice aroma. Surprise! Flavor is smooth and sweet. Not as tart as most ciders that I’ve had, which I prefer. Not bad.

I think I’m starting to like ciders less and less. I found that this smelled and looked fine, but I didn’t really get the orange or coriander and it was almost headache level sweet to me.

A very unique cider here. An hard to describe beer like taste with a orange spice note finish. I have to say I really enjoyed this cider and is one of my top three in the wood chuck line. I serve this close to freezing.

1.5 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 5/20
UPDATED: OCT 1, 2012 Another single from New Beer.
Old chardonnay sort of color.
Odd, yeasty, fruit punch/mixed Jolly Rancher & bubblegum aroma.
Taste is a mish-mash of fruit juices. Apple, grape, pineapple, banana, pear, ...bubblegum? Seems like the yeast had a bit too much fun. Honestly tastes like some odd children’s juice box. Really too weird for for anyone remotely sober.
Hidden alcohol. Lighter then usual carbonation. An extra few kilos of table sugar. Paste & continued confusion on the few draws I could manage to swallow.
Top 20 cider?! You’re all high. I need a beer.

Pours a slightly hazy gold into a shaker. No head at all. Apple and yeast aromas. Soft with upfront apple pie turning to mild yeast in the middle before the lasting apple finish.

3.8 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle. Nice pale golden hue with little carbonation. Aromas of fresh apples abound. Crisp, slightly sweet, and somewhat tart apple flavor with a nice medium dry finish. The Belgian yeast, somewhat subdued comes through on the finish. One of the better ciders I’ve tried.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Comes out of the tap a clear palest gold, almost clear like vodka, with a thick and fairly persistent snow-white head. Rich and fruity aroma does not just invite a taste, but demands it. Flavor is crisp, sweet, fruity, mainly apple with more than a hint of pear and a touch of banana, along with a little fruity sourness. It is rather sweet but not sickeningly so, almost like "soft" cider. Smooth, full-bodied texture has some good fizz. I know that I have to rate this a little differently from a beer, so I hope that I have done this tasty cider justice.

Incredibly mild and mellow cider taste, beer yeast esters blend, but really in the end isn’t much more than fruit juice.
