(Bottle, 0.75 l, at laiti’s, 20150613, thanks) The cider poured pale golden and hazy. Its head was small and white. Aroma had apples, wood and tartness. Palate was medium bodied with medium carbonation. Flavours were apples, sweetness, wood and tarntess. Aftertaste had apples. A balanced and tasty cider.

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

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.

Marduk (4073) - Reval, ESTONIA - JUN 18, 2015
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!

Récolte 2012, Passage en fűt 2013. PASSÉ SIX MOIS EN FŰT DE CALVADOS
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.

750ml bottle, thanks FatPhil!

Pours clear yellowish with a tiny head. Aroma of oak, tartish apples, wood, fruits and hints of leathery notes. Taste is smooth, crisp and tartish with loads of apples, oak, wood, hints of calvados and farmyardy notes. Finish is smooth, tartish and fruity with loads of apples and oak. Pretty nice.

dodskenta (102) - Rönninge, SWEDEN - MAY 17, 2015
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!
