First Impression:  Pale peach hue.  Very low carbonation.  Smells of peach-flavored candy.

Tasting Notes:  Semi-dry to semi-sweet.  Medium bodied.  Low tartness and acidity.  No bitterness, sourness, funk, or tannins.  Notes of peach, mango, lime, and strawberry.  Quick finish.  Low apple flavor and complexity.  Moderate flavor intensity.  High sessionability.

My Opinion:  I liked it.  However, this is something best drank quickly on a hot day, not savored in the evening with dinner.  It tastes rather commercial, which is how I’d describe it, as they add sugar and flavor.

Most Similar to:  Portland Cider’s Sangria, although that is more natural tasting, and I preferred its flavor.

Closing Notes:  They also have a “Red” variety of this sangria.
