Bottle: Pale gold color with no head. Semi sweet apple aroma with some mineral notes. Light sweetness, apple skins, dryer finish. Nice body for a cider. Not mind blowing, but drinkable. GeniusGirl (221) - Boston, Massachusetts, USA - SEP 23, 2004
(tap) very light in color, with and apple/seltzer aroma, not my favorite hard cider, but i suppose you could put them back fairly easily Jine (903) - Nutley, New Jersey, USA - SEP 18, 2004
This really is very clear. Almost non-existent color. Very dry also. Had some with beaconstreet. I thought this was good but I didn’t enjoy it as much as I did the woodchuck I tried last night. But that is probably just personal preference not reflection on this cider. Worth a try beaconstreet (811) - Washington DC, USA - SEP 18, 2004
Beautiful cider from the Green Mountains, or so I thought from the label. This is class--has the major bubbles, pale pale color, and intense dryness as most English ciders do. But has a good medium-strength infusion of apple taste to keep it known you’re drinking apple cider. Just wonderful. I’m sure though, as with other dry ciders, it’ll kill you/really mess you up after a few rounds. But an enjoyable drink, without destroying your palate.

So pale is it almost white-clear. Very light tartness (grannies?) balanced against a medium effervescence. Very good--doesn’t overdo the apple sweetness......but still doesn’t taste quite right. I can only assume it is pasteurized...the search goes on.... thanks Fry!

This is the most unique looking cifer I have ever seen. Like pouring a flute of champagne, this pours clear and carbonated and fizzy. This literally looks like sparkling water. Great tangy apple nose that is lightly tart. Dry and very refreshing and satisfying. A real thirst quencher with hints of peach and pear as well as granny smith apples. matta (1140) - Tampa, Florida, USA - JUL 2, 2004
Thanks to Wunderbier for buying a 6er up in Brooklyn and giving me a bottle to bring back home!

Did I just pour a glass of 7up? This cider is almost crystal clear… a slight golden hue though. The aroma is brute… champagne like. The flavor is crushed apples and a note of white vinegar… it’s pretty damn drinkable. I think I’m drinking champagne… not so cider like????? A tart entrance but a rather sweet dry finish.
12 oz bottle, snifter. Red and green apples, whtie wine, a little bit of allspice in the aroma. A faint hint of doughy yeast is a pleasant suprise. Small, fizzy white head on a sparkling yellow-pearl body. Heavily sweet, moderately acidic flavor becomes a moderately sweet, lightly acidic finish of short duration. Medium-light body, watery texture, fizzy carbonation. The bottom line is: I don’t really know how this stacks up against other ciders, but I found it to be quite refreshing, if not a bit simple.

This is my first cider, so maybe I’m way off the mark here, but...
This actually made a small white head that left a nice lace on the glass. The body just had the least bit of pale yellow color to it; Champagne-like. The aroma was clean, and fresh, not artificial, apple with a hint of honey. The palate was lively effervescent, sweet, with a wonderfully light tangyness. With 6% alcohol, this could be sneaky stuff. Very nice, I’ll try and check out some cider ratings and sample a few more of these.
After sampling some very fine ciders in Quebec, I have dropped this down from a previous score of 4.1. spkldhenlvr24 (517) - Newburgh/Buffalo, New York, USA - JUN 16, 2004
UPDATED: AUG 12, 2004 Suprised there is so few ratings. Very light, apple juice appearance, no head. Good apples aroma. Average cider flavor, nothing to crazy. I guess others should try it.
