$5 from Trader Joe's. 750ml bottle imported cider from Brittany France.
Lovely deep golden orange hue. Highly carbonated. Ripe cooked apple, vanilla, caramel, & brown sugar, both scent & taste. Between semi-dry & semi-sweet, which was sweeter than I was expecting, but good. Effervescent mouthfeel. Crisp & smooth, and very refreshing, Light-bodied. Very flavorful and a bit unique, but not bold.
Slight earthiness, but no funk. Almost no detectable bitterness, acidity, or tartness. This cider was a crowd pleaser. Easy to drink, so its probably good it was only 5% ABV.
Very tasty! This is an awesome deal for $5 as well. I'll be picking up more for sure.
