This is any easy drinking cider light on fruit taste and not overly sweet but seems too sweet to be a semi-dry.

Only sold at Trader Joe's. This appears to be a new version, replacing the 12oz bottles with red or green labels. Still made at the Woodchuck facility. Notes of apple, honey, apple pomace, pineapple, and lemon. I liked it.  Easy to drink, but it had some complexity and wasn't too sweet.  I thought it was far better than their previous "Authentic" version, which just tasted like a slightly watered down version of Woodchuck Amber.  However, although the can mentioned bittersweet apples, I believe only a small amount were used.

My access to new ciders has been limited lately, and this Trader Joe's version peaked my interest. It really lacks any fruit taste or aroma. With that said, it wasn't half bad- and easy going down. Thus the neutral rating.

Fairly sweet, tastes like dessert apples. Not an amazing craft cider but not a bad offering from TJs, either.

If you like fizzy, alcoholic, apple juice. This one’s for you. Too sweet for me.

Impressed that they used bitterseeet apples but it still doesn’t make for an interesting cider.
