2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
From old notes now that we are able to put the rating in the system. +++ Sampled from a 12 oz green bottle this cider poured an incredibly pale yellow color with no head and no lacing. The aroma was sweet berries and apple. The flavor was sweet and tart berries and apple. Long sweet sugar, berry and apple finish. Light and watery body. Ok.

Refrigerated bottle poured into a white wine glass. Pours clear with a ting of white/yellow and small white head that dissipates quickly. Light apple aroma, small lacing, virtually no carbonation, and light body. Taste is light sweet apple and then a slight tartness.

UPDATED: MAR 11, 2014 Draft.
A- Sweet fruits, sour, apples, pears, berries.
A- Dark golden color, clear liquid, no head.
T- Apples, sweet, slightly tart, hints of blueberries.
P- Light body, average texture, high carbonation, sweet dry finish.
O- A great cider and one of my favorites. The subtle blueberry notes are awesome and it is quite refreshing. Although it is a very sweet cider, you could session drink this. Just not much too much to complain about with this one.

Picked up at the ol’ ABC. I got notes of apples, yeast and soft breadiness. As it warmed up more apple crisp became apparent, but so did the sense of artificial sweetness. This one is fun to slam down, but no so enjoyable among the rest.

2.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Clear translucent gold, nearly hue-less, with a earthy and soil-y apple nose. Flavor is sugar sweet with a effervescent flavor of apple on a dry earthy finish. Eh.

(bottle - 12 oz) From notes since it wasn’t rateable yet. Clear gold pour with a thin white head. Fruity apple and berry aroma. Overly sweet flavor. Lots of berry and candy flavors mixing with the apple. A bit too sweet.

2oz sample at International Great Beer Expo (Meadowlands). Pours a fizzy light pale yellow color. Aroma of sweet apple juice and a hint of blueberry. Taste of sugary apples, and the slightest hint of blueberry.

2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Bottle sampled at the World Beer Festival Richmond, 6/12/10. Pours nearly colorless with the faintest tinge of yellow with no head. The aroma is tart, sweet and candy-like. Nondescript overly sugary fruity notes very reminiscent of gummy bears, along with a bit of grain. The taste is more gummy bears along with apples and citrus. Cloying and artificial. Thin bodied. I was thinking about picking up a six pack of this. Thankfully I tried it here first.
