2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
22 ounce bottle from Winooski Beverage in Winooski, VT (May 2008), served just above fridge temperature from a Chouffe tulip. Very slight fizzy head dies quickly, some bubble action continues in the pale faintly cloudy gold body for a while....nose is nice, very fresh apple juice, hint of tartness, but little complexity or farmhouse character....and body is more or less the same, much sweeter than a traditional English or French-style cider, if more "real" tasting than the typical Woodchuck soda versions....towards the finish there are hints of alcohol and some interesting mineralic notes, but overall this is simple and unsophisticated and only a slight step above those ciders sold in 6-packs that it seems to be trying to distance itself from.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
650mL bottle, pours a clear pale golden with a tiny white head. Aroma brings out medium apple sweetness, with a little farmhouse funk, and some light tannins. Flavour is quite sweet for a scrumpy, with very little farmhouse character, with medium sweet apples. Drinks easy like juice. Not very scrumpy-like to me, but itís very nice for what it is.

2.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Cloudy, light tan. No head, of course. Apple juice aroma with just light tannins. Very sweet, though, on the palate. The tannins arenít enough to cover the overt sweet nature of this. The apple character is fresh, but itís too much like juice for me, and not enough like a nice, alcoholic scrumpy.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
651 ml. bottle. Pours a minimal head, over a cloudy dark yellow (SRM 4) body......nose is apple, mild acid.....taste is moderately honey sweet, with apple, hints of cinnamon spice, mild tart acid which cleans the finish......mouth feel, light almost watery body, no alcohol, light carbonation, with mild acid. This is a moderately more complex cider than many on the market which taste like fermented Red Delicious apples. This seems to have some Granny Smith in it. BJCP 7/3/14/4/6

Bomber. Cloudy copper color with small mushy floaters. Aroma of fresh apples, spice, slight funk. Flavor is semi-sweet. Tart apples, light spice, minor earthy funk. Just the right amount of sweetness and funk to keep it interesting yet drinkable.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Aroma is mostly apple, hints of spice. Pours golden dark-ish. Hints of cinnamon, spice, but mostly fresh apples. Very juicy taste, very fresh. On the sweeter side of things. Overall a very nice cider without too many bells and whistles-- just a good, solid apple taste.
