Pours a pale yellow-straw colour with prickly light carbonation. A little bit of apple flavour but there is also a touch of tartness. Firm palate and a little bit lingering apple flavour. Its okay, but its pretty typical.

Bottle [341ml] courtesy of GregClow. Pours a clear, bubbly, incredibly pale gold with no head -- looks almost like carbonated water. Mild aroma of sweet apples, wood, sugar and white wine. Tart apple flavour with some sugary sweetness, some acidity, white wine and a long dry finish. A touch too carbonated for my liking. Light bodied. Just O.K.

j12601 (9799) - Poughkeepsie, New York, USA - NOV 27, 2009
On tap at the Merchant Ale House. Pours a clear straw yellow, closer to water with a hint of yellow than to yellow. No head. Big sweet apple aromas a touch of champagne yeast. On the thin side of medium, but with loads of very fine carbonation. Ascetic acid, little bit of apple, lots of tartness. Finishes with more tangy acid. Not bad, just rather empty and one dimensional.

GregClow (3294) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - SEP 18, 2009
Bottle from the winery. Very pale colour - almost clear, really, with just a faint gold tinge. Aroma is mild with tart apple essence and a hint of off-dry white wine. Crisp, well-carbonated body. Flavour is nice and tart, Granny Smith and Ginger Gold apples, a bit of sweetness in the middle, a hint of the wine suggested by the aroma, dryish finish. Fairly simple, but refreshing.

mds (2250) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 29, 2006
Bottle. Pours a clear fizzy white-coloured body. Sugary apple aroma along with some grape soda. The flavour is of a similar dynamic with some alcohol warmth coming through. Balanced apple tartness. Effervescent carbonation. A respectable cider all around.

piscator34 (2374) - Winnipeg, Manitoba, CANADA - MAY 15, 2006
Bottled sample. Pale yellow in colour with medium carbonation. Aromas of apple blossom, a bit of caramel, and some spice. Very mellow rounded apple flavor, with a bit of white grape. Could have been a bit more crisp.
