Type: (Juice, Dealcholized, etc.): Pure Juice
Color, Vintage, Tasted, Blogged, Sparking, Score?
Amber, 2013, Tasted, still, 7/10
I saw this back at Fry's and Walmart while we're shopping, and I thought doing a taste test of three different pure varietal apple juices would be fun! I haven't seen in Apple juice before that is marketed as from a single type of Apple.
It reminds me of candied apples on the nose, and it made an interest crackling sound just after I poured it! I still am not sure what caused it. Anyone out there have any ideas? This is a still drink so I'm out of ideas.
It was amber in color, and unexpectedly, surprisingly smooth. Intriguingly smooth. Also quite light and it didn't leave a coating on my mouth like cheap high-fructose corn syrup laden juices do sometimes.
It left a green-apple-candy taste in my mouth, not in a bad way, but not in a good way either. It left my mouth with that same weird feeling as after eating a green-apple Jolly Rancher.
Works as a Wine Alternative: Probably not, but it's a great culinary drink
Did I Like it: Yes, 7/10
Would I Recommend it: Yes, I think it would be fun to do all three in the same night sometime.
Who Might Like it: Of course, if you like apple juice, you'll like this.

Medium strong carbonation, very bright in color, Fuchsia. It has a deep round cherry scent.
It’s bright and limey, the pear is lessened compared to the Welch’s Raspberry Limeade. Quite sweet, it reminds me of a Shirley Temple. Steady carbonation. I liked better at first sip compared to the end of the 3rd glass. It was punchy and buzzy at first, with a foamy mild, but cherry-strong finish, leaving a minor tingle on the tongue. It’s acidic, but I’d describe it more as a tartness. It’s well tempered by the cherry and sugar.
Works as a Wine Alternative: It’s quite sweet for that
Did I Like it: 7/10, finding a good pairing could make this more than a novelty, but I’m not sure what to pair it with. It’d be good with vanilla ice cream, and compliment it sweetly.
Would I Recommend it: It was fun, but the Strawberry Lemonade by Welch’s was more complex and easily parable with dinner foods. This is more soda like.
Who Might Like it: Anyone who likes Shirley Temples.
