Refreshing, not overly sweet nor overpowering apple flavor.

Grim Reaper's Eulogy
Well, when did this turn into a wine review? Let's's made by Gallo Winery, and it's got 21 grams of sugar like a wine...if it looks like a duck and it walks like a must be a 'cold duck', or wine in this case! In any event, it did not detract me from enjoying its delicious apple fruitiness. I found it to be a very refreshing for some Sunday afternoon imbibing, on a scorcher of a day. The cute little rhino busting through the apple barrels is quite comical. While the Grim Reaper doesn't like the old adage, "an apple a day keeps the doctor away", I think this drink could change his mind.
