  • How much: $3.80 CAD – 50cl., April 2016
  • Do I love this enough to drink it again: no
  • Would I recommend this to cider aficionados: not really

Visual: Pours very light white wine yellow with only a few barely steady large bubble streams.

Nose: moscato without the acidity (lvl-5)-pungency

Attack: crisp-soda fizzy, burpy

Mid-palate: (lvl-7-sweetness), moscato d’asti-like grape/pear, dissipating cloying sugar hit, background apple,

Finish: artificial candy-like passionfruit, subtle alcohol bitterness

Summary: Drinks something like a Moscato d’asti but more sugar and less acidity. Quite basic, but enjoyable if you like sweet and fruity cider/frizzantes. No real depth.
