22oz bottle for $6.50 in the Seattle area (cider from Bend OR). This is a new seasonal release with dragonfruit (as well as prickly pear juice). The smells is amazing...strawberry and watermelon with a hint of candy sweetness. The taste was a letdown for me. There isn't as intense of a flavor as there is a smell, and its fairly bitter. I'm not sure if I've ever eaten dragonfruit (I read its flavor is between kiwi & pear), but I'd say this cider has a flavor most similar to strawberry, with some passion fruit and pineapple.

Honestly, I purchased this cider because the can looked super cool (I submitted a picture). It’s a cider from Bend, OR and I’m all about local so I decided to give it a shot! Upon opening, it’s got a sweet fruit aroma, which must be due to the combination of apples, raspberries and dragon fruit. The flavor is amazing, and while a dry cider, the fruit flavor lingers on. Even after finishing it, I’m still getting hints of fruity taste in my mouth. It’s not overly sweet, which is why I’m a big fan of it! It won’t send you straight to the dentist, but it embodies a flavorful compound with raspberries and dragonfruit making a dramatic, lingering appearance—which is why I consider this cider semi-sweet. Overall, between the artwork on the can and the flavor, you really can’t go wrong!

This is like a desert wine of a cider, but I would not drink it with or before a meal. It's got a thick, rich flavour, almost sweet as a liquer, and the fruit taste trumpets out of the glass. Really. It's in B# I swear... Anyways, I like it!

Nice fruity flavor. Tastes kind of Waldorf saladyish. New ciders deserve new words.
