Green bottle from Trader Joes. Nice, tart Granny Smith skin aroma. Pale pear juice color (but clear) with no bubbles at all. Medium body with slightly fizzy carbonation (but no bubbles). It’s tart, it’s pretty Granny Smith in flavor, but I’d say Woodchuck is more to the fruit. That aside, it finishes tart, dry and greenskin (with hints of sweetness). It is very good.

Bottle from TJ’s Cincinnati. Poured light pale color with a small white head that diminished quickly with minimal lacing. Light aroma of apple. Light body with a thin texture. Flavor of tart apple with a light sweet finish. My expectations were met.

Drake (13739) - Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA - JUN 20, 2009
12 ounce bottle from Trader Joe’s in Short Pump, VA. Pours a very pale yellow... almost colorless. Crystal clear with lots of carbonation. Not much of an effort at a head. Aroma is tart, grainy apples. Taste is sweet apples with a tart finish. Thin bodied. Glad I cracked this first because I’m extremely thirsty, but that’s about as much good as it does.

Strange - figured I’d like this one better than the original, but the tartness came across as fake tasting, ans this one was a bit of an overall miss for me.

Bottle. Pale yellow pour with a small white head. Sweet and tart apple with some pear. Not bad.

drowland (8758) - Georgia, USA - AUG 16, 2009
UPDATED: JUN 5, 2011 Almost clear pour with a tart green apple aroma and a similar flavor with a bigger touch of sweetness and yeast. Meh.

Poured clear, like a less carbonated club soda. My friend commented that it looked like water. It’s hard to tell if the light bulbs were what gave it a slight tint of pale pale pale yellow color or if it was really brewed like that. Alcohol is completely hidden. Flavor is, well a bit tart, granny smith like, but it’s mostly like one of those zero-calorie flavor waters you can get. Completely inoffensive, so it has at least one thing going for it.

PorterPounder (7970) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - OCT 22, 2013
Tallahassee, Fl - Trader Joe’s 12 oz bottle. Pours and almost clear light golden, quick bubbly head on the pour that quickly dissipates. Aroma has some very faint sour Granny Smith notes. Flavor is very mellow with some light Granny Smith sourness, a touch of club soda - not exactly loaded down with flavor. Mouthfeel is slightly artificial and dry. Passable.

vyvvy (6478) - Florissant, Missouri, USA - FEB 8, 2008
Picked up at Trader Joes (thankfully just one bottle). Looks like carbonated water with a hint of yellow and a white head that leaves quickly. The aroma is lightly sour with some stale apple and crackers. Medium / thin body that’s crisp with sharp carbonation. The flavor begins as watery apple juice with no real granny smith flavors. Not very sour at all, a bit of staleness and somehow noticeable abv even at 5%. Fair.
