Pale yellow. Wonderfully clean, slightly sweet aroma of apple. A slight astringency in the palate, and an alcohol note. Very clean example of the Norman style.

Golden coloured body with a fast-dying white head. Pleasant aroma of musty apples and not too much else. Super-carbonated; Great finish: dry and bubbly-very nice to try! I had this bottle at the Winter Party at Oakes' place in Toronto, Canada on 05-December-2003. I owe a large amount of thanks to MartinT for supplying this 750 mL bottle to the party for us all to try!

Tastes like the apple juice popsicles I used to make with an alcohol undercurrent. Body is crisp and very effervescent. Flavour is pleasanty dry and tart but the aftertaste left something to be desired.

If this were wine, I'd call it dry. I guess since it's cider I'll call it tart. Good golden color, nice carbonization... Nice memories of my time in Normandie. Truth be told I haven't had that much experience with cider, but I do enjoy it.

Clear straw with champagne bubbles. Aroma is medium sweet apple, alcohol. Taste is medium sweet, crisp/tart apple, finishing with sweet alcohol. I lack the expertise to rate this knowledgeably, yet enjoy it quite a bit nonetheless.
