RBSG2016. Sweet ice cider arom, smells so yummy, makes my mouth water thinking about it. Pale yellow. First taste I think this is something between an ice cider and a good real cider. Oh, so nice. How could this not be an ice cider? It’s so refined. Overall good apple experience. Just plain good stuff. Refreshing compared to all those uncivilized american wannah bee ciders out there. Big thanks to the rateberian who brought this one. Yes, a simple reliable really good cider experience.

Thank you! 750 ml. bottle sampled @ Ganzerik. Rich cider with lots of sweet apple nots but real sweet apples & not some sugary affair. Sweetness is cut with light funk. Very nice. Hazy golden. Nose is sweet red apples, real apple sweetness, light red apple skins. Taste is light funk that cuts the sweetness, faint candy sweet red apples, light red apple skins. Bit hazy body. Very nice.
