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. drpimento (3760) - La Crosse, Wisconsin, USA - JUN 12, 2017
Best thing about this cider by far is the aroma which is perfumy. Everything else- flavor, body, finish, appearance is ho-hum. euniceradio (562) - Worthington, Minnesota, USA - JAN 11, 2017
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. crossovert (13909) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - AUG 27, 2016
Draft. A sweet cider, really nothing to discuss here, sweet and appley, not my favorite in the style. Lemke10 (995) - Waukesha, Wisconsin, USA - AUG 23, 2016
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.

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. svandyke (257) - USA - JUL 18, 2016
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 JK (6293) - St. Louis Park, Minnesota, USA - JUL 22, 2015
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. asedzie (832) - San Francisco, California, USA - JUN 28, 2015
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. Nuffield (4199) - Roseville, Minnesota, USA - JUN 27, 2015
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.
