(bottle) strange golden-rosé colour with no head. aroma of apple pie and custard, slightly green, with lots of vanilla, some fried okra and sugar icing. flavour is mostly mealy apples and vanilla, with quite a bit of butterscotch, lots of caramel and chocolate sauce. medium-bodied with fizzy carbonation. bartlebier (3982) - Belchium im Biersgau, GERMANY - MAY 27, 2017
568ml bb09/2018, local REWE. Ligh salmon pinkish pour, brief white head fizz. Sweetish rosé sugars and apples, sulphurs peeping through. Flavour: suspect this has been watered down: extremely mild with watery pockets in between the lieblich apple flesh. Touches of tart, surface of sweet. Drinkable.

Claro naranja, ligeramente espumoso, burbujeante cabeza blanquecina. El aroma es meloso, manzana, miel, flor de saúco. El cuerpo es ligero, carbonatación suave. El sabor es agua tónica, manzana ligera, flor de saúco, agua con gas de sabores. Se bebe si es fría mejor. Zilb (322) - Fontenay Sous Bois, FRANCE - APR 23, 2017
Pression au Long Hop soirée Ogp. Légèrement ambré, carbo très importante mais artificielle. On sent bien la pomme mais beaucoup trop d’acidité.... Dommage ! stmurph6409 (1) - Pennsylvania, USA - APR 14, 2017 does not count
To start with, bought twice over the span of a few weeks from different locations to make sure it was not a fluke. Got a consistent product both times.
Aroma - Not pleasant, mostly has an astringent, rubbing alcohol sort of smell with a bit of a fruity undertone underneath of it. Not a drink I enjoyed the smell of for its own sake.
Appearance - Easily the best quality of the cider. Beautifully clear, the carbonation produces a very small head that quickly fades, pours very nicely. If you’re looking for a pretty liquid to put inside of a container, this does a fairly good job.
Taste - Definitely a sweet cider, when you first taste a sip, you get a nice little burst of sweetness and while the liquid stays in your mouth, you can appreciate the nice apple flavor. The second you swallow though, it abruptly vanishes and you’re left with a truly appalling aftertaste and smell that invades your mouth and sinuses. While I understand the cider is fermented fruit, this is a distinctly rotten taste that I haven’t encountered in other ciders. And it lingers...for a long time.
Palate - Light body, very thin texture, and a nice carbonation. It tends to coat your mouth and cling, part of the problem with the poor taste review above.
Overall - Can’t say I would recommend this one, for much the same reason the other people would recommend it. That after taste is absolutely brutal. If you don’t mind it or even enjoy it, this is probably pretty good. But for those who aren’t fans (like myself), it completely kills the enjoyment of what could have been an ok budget cider.
