We’ve been fans of their original Batch 1904 for a while now and when they announced they would be releasing a new cider we certainly got excited. Which is why on a recent trip to TallBoys we jumped at the chance to try it.
Named after the Queen Street streetcar, which I’ve had the ‘pleasure’ of using for a daily commute for quite some time a few years ago, they claim it represents a lot of what Toronto has to offer. In terms of the actual ingredients they say it is a mix of 8 different types of apple, all grown here in Ontario. I am a fan of buying local.
I can not currently find this in the LCBO database but I am told it will be appearing at LCBOs across Ontario. It sits at just 5% ABV.
Appearance: Golden pale yellow. Clear. Very little head.
Aroma: Apples, Very sweet.
Taste: Surprisingly sweet. Bit of caramel. Pear hints. A salad of apples.
Aftertaste: light and short. A lingering sweetness.
Overall: A bit sweeter than we generally go for. But enjoyable.
