2.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
New plastic, apple, artificial rose water smell. Crystal clear pale yellow. Tangy apple flavor, but artificial. Light and spritzy. Kind of alcopopish and like a wine cooler.

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle at home. Pours very, very light yellow to clear. Light white foam that dissipates quickly. Aroma is raspberries and some tart apple. Flavor follows. Nice, refreshing drink. Not as bad as the ratings would imply. Finishes very day.

Apple cider smell with hint of raspberry, looks almost as clear as water...taste is great, fairly crisp, a little lingering sweetness, perhaps just a touch too sweet though, nice raspberry touch.. not too artificial..maybe could drink 2

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
bottle - Pours very pale yellow-gold with an aroma that includes apple but is led by the raspberry. It’s very sweet. Raspberries and apples are both obvious. It’s light bodied, refreshing, and overly sweetened.

1.5 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 4/20
355ml. Almost comically water-like appearance. Smell is mostly sweet raspberry with some chlorine and apple backing. Flavor is very tangy raspberry, sweet and apple juicy. Not a good cider.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
This isn’t as bad as I expected but it is still not good. For starters, it is nearly completely clear. It is a shade darker than water at best. I expected pink but this is even worse. It basically tastes and smells like some kind of raspberry soda pop but it is not quite so terribly sweet as actual soda and there’s a bit of tartness and apple skin astringent character to help balance. It goes down pretty easy and doesn’t have any off flavors, I will give it that, but this has little appeal beyond sweetness and alcohol.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Short, 12oz bottle. Pours clear white. Color of pear meat. Odd, I expected it to be bright red/pink. Smells of medicine. Strong raspberry extract aroma. Sweet flavor, crisp apple, and raspberry extract. Finishes with a simple apple flavor. (4316)

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle to half-pint glass (shared with the Mrs.). Looks decent; a transparent light gold with thin white lacing that quickly dissipates entirely. The nose is a nice balance of raspberry and soft apple sweetness. Tastes like it smells with a bit of a tart, spritzy mouthfeel. A little artificial tasting (which is why I dinged it slightly overall), but it exceeded my expectations.
