3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
750ml bottle (Stockholm, Riga)
Aroma quite restrained, just a slight appley hint, but more a woody wineyness. Pale and effervescent. Crisp on the tongue. Initially quite sharp, but as it warms a bit, some sweetness comes through. Nice lip-smacking sourness. Good crisp cidre to have with grilled meat. A champagne of ciders.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottled. Golden colour with no head. Aroma is apples (green and ripe ones), and mild sweetness. Flavour is earthy, mild sweetish sour apples as well as some yeasty and farmyardy funk to it. Somewhat dry palate.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a clear golden color with a decent white head. Aroma is sour, green apple, fuji sweet apple, vinegar. Taste is clean apple juice, slight vinegar bite, weak cinnamon, sweet yet dry at the finish. Palate and drinkability are amazingly smooth. Definitely worth a try.

4.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
750ml bottle from TheCheeseMan, thanks Dan. Clear pale yellow in colour with no head but lots of visible carbonation. The aroma is fantastic, wood, vanilla, apples, brown sugar with just a hint of alcohol. The flavour follows what the aroma brought, its like an iced cider without all the alcohol and not still. Finishes quite long and bubbly. The best regular cider that I have had, nearing ice cider in terms of flavour and aroma. Fantastic stuff right from the start.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. Pours a clear light yellow body with loads of visible bubbles. Nose is apple cores, yellow apple peel, wood, sawdust and hints of cellar mold and raisins. Taste is yellow apples, sawdust, wood, sweet apple cores, mellow cellar mold tones, raisins and hints of straw. Light body, semi-dry finish and high carbonation. A mellow and smooth cider, obviously aged with a rather high degree of success. Nice one.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
A 0.75l corked bottle from 2009. A massive white fizzing head that vaporizes as quickly as I’ve never seen before. Like a champagne in many ways really. The cider is as no big shock to the system, clear and pale in color. Lots of aroma! I get green apples, a ton of cellar, lots or cork, wood and rhubarb. Really nice! A really high carbonation level on this and it has a good apple flavor all the way. That massive carbonation level gives it a push. Some cellar with wet rocks and a soft dry tongue in the aftertaste. It’s really good this! 09.08.2013

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Refrigerated 75 cl green bottle corked, capped, and foiled poured into a white wine glass. Pours very pale yellow with small white head which dissapates very quickly, medium carbonation, aroma is beautiful tart apple, and no lacing. Taste is nice apple. Something in the finish is not that great, not worth the price.
