COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
They said that the Honeycrisp apple is unfit for hard cider. They said it wouldn’t unless you added buckets of sweeteners. They said lots of stuff. We harnessed the power of this most coveted apple an concocted this bubbly beverage that finishes dry like nice champagne. All hail the Honeycrisp.

Keg @ Front Street, Fargo. Very pale golden pour with a small head. Pretty sweet end of the spectrum. Mild tartness. Sweet honey. Stron carb. Spritzy as hell.

Best thing about this cider by far is the aroma which is perfumy. Everything else- flavor, body, finish, appearance is ho-hum.

UPDATED: JAN 11, 2017 On tap. Pours clear champagne, soda head. Aroma of sweet candied apples. Taste of same. Not too sweet with a semi-dry finish. Not a fancy cider. But is as promises...Minnesota’s own Honeycrisp apple.

Draft. A sweet cider, really nothing to discuss here, sweet and appley, not my favorite in the style.

This pours a clear, pale yellow color with a touch of carbonation. The aroma is full of sweet apples. The taste is sweet, full bodied, and quite refreshing. A big bold flavor of apples upfront followed by a slight tart finish. Nicely balanced so it’s not too strong or too weak.

Skyview (6055) - Papoose Jct, Minnesota, USA - AUG 22, 2016
Picked up a single 12-oz can from Heritage Liquors in Maplewood, Minnesota. Pours a clear Pinot Grigio colored cider with a thick bubbly head that quickly dissipates and leaves behind a white ring and film top. Aroma of sweet apples, some light potpourri, a hint of Jolly Rancher tart apple, and very faint cider yeast. Taste is medium bodied, some extra carbonation with flavors of both sweet and tart apples, a hint of earthy spice and mild cider yeast. Finish is semi-dry with a short lived yeast and tart aftertaste, followed by Honeycrisp apple flavors. Well-balanced flavors between yeast and apple profile.

Pint- Rochester mn very pale straw color. No head. No smell at all. Not much apple at all. About the only decent thing is a good mouth feel

From a can. This is a solid, cider that is a step up from the more common sugar bombs. Very well carbonated. Aroma has some yeast and apple, but it is not especially sweet in the aroma. Flavor has a little sourness, not overly so, and it isn’t comparable to the high end French or Canadian ciders. As a refreshing summer beverage, this is good.

Can. Pour is pale golden with light bubbly head. Nose is very fresh apples, sawdust, mild wine-like notes. Flavor is very simple but nice - begins with the slightest touch of tart-sweetness, middle completely dries out and is light airy carbonation, some good apple near the finish and a bit of tartness clearing the palate. Great stuff - not complex but good quaffable cider with no major faults.

Notwithstanding the fact that this is from Minnesota, and that it has a good name, this really isn’t that great of a cider. The best thing it has going for it is a sourness present in the mid-finish. Otherwise, it begins as a highly carbonated cider, with a big, loose head that quickly dissipates, and it gives off an apple note that is halfway between Granny Smith fresh and Jolly Rancher candy. If it were a blind tasting, I think the sourness might make it stand out, but it is still far closer to the mainstream ciders than the best of small batch ciders (esp. English ones). Bottle.
