750mL Bottle. Thanks, Sarah. Weak apple juice and cooked applesauce aroma. Flavors play soft, easy and cheap. A corky mushy apple juice segues into a tannic, fake-tasting caramel notion. This feels like the Woodchuck of French cidre. Sweet, cooked, and bland. Lacking the proper depth given by the right apples and the right production process.
bottle at tommy’s, centre-of-quebec. pours unclear light gold with a small white cap offering some retention and lacing. buttery apples, no farmhouse character, sweet honey, celery salt, faint grass, heavy sugars - stevia, minerals. moderate carbonation - could be healthier/brighter; light body, sweet honey finish. linear sweet buttery cider. weak. tom10101 (6267) - Quebec, CANADA - AUG 12, 2017
Bottle (750 ml) shared at tasting by mathieuc. Clear pale golden with no head or lacing. Aroma is weird, mostly a mix of buttery notes and apple juice. Taste is sweet-ish wiith oxidation notes, butter and apple juice. Light body. Moderate carbonation. Burnt rubber finish. This is pretty bad.

Clear gold pour. Aroma is super funky, cheesy, buttery, apple juice. Taste is buttery, cheesy, juicy apple, super bad. Really bad. emerge077 (73) - RIP Johnnies, Chicago, Illinois, USA - JUN 1, 2017
Hated this. Tasted like apple juice filtered through old newpapers. Overly sweet and oxidized, one dimensional and pretty unpalatable. Dusty bottle from World Market. beammeupscotty (2) - - MAR 28, 2016 does not count
This is without question the best tasting cider that I have found for the money. I pay $6.49 +CRV for it and it is worth every penny. I’d drink it every day if I could afford it. It is light, but not too light, crisp and apple-tasting without even approaching the Jolly Rancher realm, is low alcohol content so I can drink a whole bottle in an evening without getting messed up. It is beautiful to look at, it tastes just like it is supposed to and just like the ciders I drank in France. All in all, it’s awesome.

750mL bottle at Schilling, pours a fairly clear golden blonde with a small white head. Nose brings out a complex mix of syrup, barnyard notes and a touch of funk. Flavour isn’t as sweet, with some light farmhouse notes, light sweetness and oak. Complex and well-rounded. Really nice stuff, especially for the price point.

Draft - Peel and some baked apple funk. Clear gold with a decent white head. Nice apple and some good peel notes without tannins and dryness. Solid. Steve_0 (3818) - Denver, Colorado, USA - JUL 11, 2015
Taster at Mile High Wine and Spirits. Pour is clear golden with a small white head and decent lacing. Green apples, light honey, straw and some rubber notes in the aroma. Taste bring more pear, some straw, white grapes with a lingering rubber note on the backend. Light body with high carbonation. Meh. degbert (1776) - Austin, Texas, USA - JAN 12, 2015
Bottle. Pours a deep gold with a very brief head and a lot of visible carbonation. Nose is Golden Delicious apple, honey, yeast, pastry, and nutmeg. On the tongue, I don’t know that I’d call that ’brut’, exactly -- but damn, it’s good. Bright golden and green apple flavor, some apple peel, a touch of honeyed sweetness, crisp pastry notes, nutmeg, and allspice. A long, complete finish brings it together nicely. Quite good.

Corked and caged 750ml bottle into a glass. Clean dark hay pour, a bit lighter than apple juice. Nice light carbonation. Aroma is sweet, lightly tart, earthy and a bit musty. Taste is sugary, tart green apples, dry, juicy. Lingering earthiness and lightly artificial sweetener finish.
