Bottle from Whole Foods courtesy of cwsample. Clear light straw color. No head. Cider aroma. Apples, crispness, slight butter. Refreshing. Taste is apple tartness and light sweet flavors. Soft and easy. hopscotch (11043) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - JUN 26, 2010
UPDATED: MAY 2, 2015 Bottle... Pours nearly clear with effervescence, but no head. The aroma is of dried, fallen apples. Light-bodied with a thin mouthfeel and prickly carbonation. The flavor is far more tart and refreshing than I anticipated. Sweetness is low. Alcohol is unapparent. Finishes tangy and dry. Bottle states 6% ABV; not 8% ABV. Enjoyable.

Enjoyed on tap in a pub glass. The beer pours a Champagne-colored light yellow hue, with essentially no head. The nose carries the slight scent of artificial backsweetening, but also pleasant hints of tart apples. The palate lacks the bracing acidity and tartness of some better European examples of the style, but still manages to show a subtle note of tartness, especially in the mid- and late palate. Artificial sweetness is also present in the flavor profile, but is subtle enough to avoid being a real detractor. Perhaps the cider’s highlight is its deft concealment of alcohol. At 8%abv, this is about as drinkable as lemonade...dangerous in its deception. Overall, a little too much of an effort to appeal to the narrow American palate, but style a decent effort. drseusszb200 (687) - Florida, USA - APR 24, 2010

Pours out a light yellow chardonnay .. . light pear and apple wine aromas .. . light perry, light chardonnay, and light tart apple juice flavours .. . light spritz in the mouth, not as smooth as one would like .. . decent, wine drinkers would love it.. . Never start with the head! The victim gets all... fuzzy...

Bottle. Poured a light golden with a quick fizzy white head. Aroma and flavor of apple and light earthiness. Light body and a light tart apple aftertaste. blutt59 (6562) - Dallas, Texas, USA - MAR 23, 2010
bottle, clear yellow with watermelon and green jolly rancher aromas, flavors are a little plastic, some cheap chard, sour finish degbert (1772) - Austin, Texas, USA - MAR 15, 2010
Poured from bottle. Odd nose; I did smell some green apple, but it was overwhelmed by a scent that I can only describe as green tomato. Appearance is light and faint yellow, with small bubbles. Taste is dry and crisp, but I still wanted a bit more apple up front. Finishes clean and quick. Not bad, but I wanted more flavor than I got. cmonster (1000) - Portland, Oregon, USA - DEC 21, 2009
Bomber served in a footed pilsner glass. Pours clear, pale water in color. No head. Nose and flavors are crisp Granny Smith apple. Tart and dry finish. Suttree (6358) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - NOV 8, 2009
I kinda liked it. It’s not overbearingly sweet like a lot of ciders, and has a nice, winey flavor and testure, almost champainge like. Some sour notes, as well.
