375 ml (?) bottle shared with Capflu, Goldorak, beerbuzzmontreal, Boutip and DumDum at the Ciderwinder tasting in Ottawa. Still light amber, no legs, appears a bit thin...honey hints in the medium-sweet fresh apple nose...bit of sharpness and spice as it warms...average sweet-tart balanced body...not much to say here, really.

3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Translucent yellow, and tranquil. A pleasing mix of sweetness and spicyness, licorice predominantly in the nose. No carbonation, warm alcohol, spicy anise, and a dry finish. I’m not a fan of pastis, sambuca, absinthe or anything else that tastes likes black licorice, but this one I’ve surprisingly enjoyed. Makes a good digestif.

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
As clear as it gets, golden hue. Not very complex straight apple, fruit skin nose. Slightly tart, not that sweet at all, very thin..A rather disappointing bottle. I’ll try again Todd!

(750ml bottle) Pours rather deeper in colour than the average cider - appears to be an orange-amber like you would find with an English Bitter. No carbonation yet it has very tiny sedimentation everywhere. The cider carries a very pleasant and sweet nose of MacIntosh apples and a white wine undertone. The flavour is extrordinary - a good balance of sweet, tart and alcohol with a spiciness to boot. A tad dry and thin for my liking but a very good cider all-round. Very enjoyable for a cider prices as agreeably as this one - $12.95. Would go nicely with a chicken or lamb dish.
