Swing Strong Cider Apple Light
750ml bottle (Alko Arkadia, Helsinki)
Scary sweet apple aroma. So freaking sweet, and so freaking fake. Water plus alcohol plus sugar plus carbon dioxide plus apple flavour.

Swing Dry Apple Strong Cider
75 cl bottle @ home
Vertical with La Face Cachée de la Pomme Bulle de Neige Bubble
Aroma is rather sweet and feels artifical. It has pear and fruit candy. And for some reason it reminds me of parties 15 years ago. Flavour is rather weird. It starts decent with artifical apple but then turns to acidic white wine tones and finishes somewhat watery and dry. Watery, 8% ABV and still no booze around – how did they do it? I must say that I expected worse.

Pernod Ricard Chymos Väkevä Päärynäviini
PET bottle. Pale yellow colour with not too much head to talk about. Aroma is very sweet sugar and artificial strong pear. Flavour is artificial pear and vanilla on a small sip. On a mouthful the alcohol dominates over "vanilla ice cream" and and some sugary sweet (artificial) pears, Overly sweet, but then again it says suits with desserts etc and as it is, a bit chilled. True. And unless you take a mouthful this one hides the abv rather well when being about fridgecold. As it warms up even slightly it gets rather thick of all the sweetness and more a sipper than a "chugger". Considering the producer, what real cider might be and the abv this is a so so. Atleast when more to the cold than room temperature.

V&S Original Sparkling Apple Wine (Pärlande Äppelvin)
Bottled. Yellowish golden colour, small white head. Aroma is apples, mild tart/sourness with some vinegary notes. Also mild rubber. Flavour is quite similar with the vinegar being stronger. Once it warms up closer to room temperature the flavour gets some rather "pizza spicy" notes... Wherever those come from in a cider or apple wine....Scores given for the fridge cold version.

V&S Original Sparkling Apple Wine (Pärlande Äppelvin)
Bottle, 75cl. A clear, pale golden cider with some carbonation. A rather alcoholic one, with some apple hints in the far back. Higher alcohols too. In the flavor it’s a little bit better, leaving more room for the apples. Still, it’s not very pleasant. Medium body, warming. The aroma is rather bad in this one, but at least the flavor is slightly better. Still, next to undrinkable, unless you’re really fond of booze. 120124

Swing Strong Cider Perry
Bottle, 75cl, courtesy of Papsoe. It’s a pale yellow and clear cider without any head. Pears and sugary sweetness on the aroma. Ok, so it’s a perry, but I would very much like something more than just the flavor of any pear and sugar in my mouth, doesn’t help if the finish is all standard, almost artificial, pear either. Sweet too in the mouth. An industrial imperial perry that won’t appear in my book of rerates. 090821

Swing Strong Cider Apple Light
Bottle, courtesy of Papsoe. It’s a pale yellow cider, clear and without any bubbles or head. The aroma has less alcohol than the strong cider, with apples and fruity sweetness dominating. Sweet flavor with lots of apples, also in the finish. Medium body, rather sticky. This is not my idea of a cider, but it’s of course drinkable. 090821

Swing Apple Strong Cider
Bottle, shared by Papsoe. It’s a clear, yellow cider without head or carbonation. Decent aroma, but tending a bit too much sweet industrial cider. Some alcohol too. Warming, dry, medium body with a sweet, apple flavor. Short finish. Pleasant in a strange way, probably in small quantities only, as it’s too warming and too much reminiscent of industrial sugar cider. 090821
