Loads of baked apple on the nose! Hint of tropical fruit like mango. Very creamy mouthfeel with small bubbles. Sweeter than expected. Very nice!

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
750ml bottle (Stockmann, Riga) (6:3+:7:3+:14=3.3++)
Slightly thin, and even slightly farty, aroma. Slightly leathery funkiness, but does have a lovely sophisticated apple flesh taste. Pleasant carbonation. Just a pleasant hint of the calvados barrel ageing. A very sophisticated cidre, with no sign of alcohol at all, but lacking the balls that I prefer in ciders. I imagine those who can appreciate champagne appreciating this more than me.

750ml bottle @Laiti’s thanks. Clear golden yellow color. Farmhouse dust, rotten apples, fruity and yeasty aroma. Apples, sweet, leather, juicy notes in taste. Smoky leather in aftertaste. Crisp mouthfeel. Nice fruity aftertaste. At first smells and tastes bit weird, but really opens up later. Nice one!

Aroma has apple peel, sweet apples, flour and green apples. Flavour is slightly sweet with apple peel, floury apples, some green apple vibes. Also mild milky notes. Feels leathery both in nose and mouth. Nicely balanced, could be less floury though.

4.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 19/20
Bottle straight from the cidery. Pale golden in color. Beautiful aroma, musty and slightly tart apples, funky oak, fresh red apples, sweetness. The flavour on this cider is just as good as the aroma, plenty of red apples, caramel sweetness, loads of oak, some barnyard. Big carbonation and dry finish. Absolute top stuff!
