Ciders are my favorite drink right now and this one is spontaneously fermented, so it is as natural as it gets. Has a slight musty apple aroma and cloudy yellow color. Tastes like a subtle apple juice.

Bouteille 25cl @ IL Pretesto, Bologna. BB 04/2015. Orangée-cuivrée, léger col blanc. Arôme offre un bouquet pomme très efficace qui rappelle par moment un cidre de glace de par ces effluves caramélisées. Note concentrée de sucre et de pomme est très agréable. Palais est superbement bien dans le style de cidre. Ici, pas question de sec mais un concentré caramélisé de pomme. Légèrement râpeux avec une poibnte d etannin venant d ela pelure. Une très belle découverte.

DSG (5021) - Tel Aviv, ISRAEL - OCT 25, 2013
[10/17/13] Bottle at Open Baladin in Rome. Clear deep golden. Pleasant apples aroma with a light citric hint and a sulphury touch. Sweetish flavor of apples, a bit sugary, a bit sulphury, with faint tartness. A decent cider.

MicroGrog (302) - FT: Stale Polotmavý in Queens, New York, USA - OCT 17, 2013

Sweaty $14 750 from New Beer Distributors. This French cider is donning Armani.
Fluted tulip. Absolutely massacred that stubborn bottle cap. Clear, bronze, MGD color. Inch of soda white head that lingers enough to almost resemble an average lager. Constant activity.
Smell is dominated by Werther’s caramel candies, with spicy & ticklishly tart apples playing catch up. Buttery pie crust. Something very much like strawberry jam at the end.
Taste is powdered sugar sweet & soft. Upfront malic acid. Juicy. Candy apples. Earthy, mellow tannins. Honey. Quiet woody vanilla residual.
Slick mouthfeel. Foamy. Just enough bite in the carbonation. Sulfites are in check. Easy.
While the taste can’t quite live up to the so very curious aroma, it’s still a pretty good buy as a whole. Plenty of locals charge this much & more for their time. Underrated.

TheBeerGod (5045) - Newport News, Virginia, USA - MAR 31, 2013
Bottle - 750mL crowned. Label shows 2011 vintage! Slightly hazed golden pour with a short, foamy white head. Aroma is apples but with slight funk and earthiness. Taste is ripe apples, baked apples, apple juice, light earthiness and a touch of funkiness/barnyard. Body is light with soft, prickly carbonation and lots of stickiness. Ends with more apple juice, green apples, baked apples and earthy notes. Nice cider!

crossovert (6339) - Illinois, USA - JAN 17, 2013
Pours with a ncie head and color. Aroma and flavor of rotted apples. I was expecting it to be tart and sour but it is quite sweet. Its easily drinkable.

justVASGO (4) - ITALY - AUG 19, 2012 does not count
Aroma is sweet apple. Nice, light golden color and a white head that goes away in 20 seconds. Sweetness is nicely balanced. Big apple taste, semi-dry finish. Something strange though with the overall taste that I can’t pin down. Estery? Can’t stand ciders that are sweet and this one didn’t turn me off on that level. Nice to try, but still prefer Strongbow, Magners and K over Baladin’s version.

yespr (29683) - Copenhagen O, DENMARK - MAY 16, 2011
75 cL bottle. Pours hazy yellow to orange with a small white head. Aroma is crisp apple fruity and slight barnyard. Citrusy, crisp apple and juicy sweet flavoured. Smooth, slight sulphorish touch into a sweet and crisp apple juicy finish.

GatheringBrews (45) - Derby, Vermont, USA - NOV 28, 2010
Smelled and tasted primarily like apple juice with a touch of tartness. Certainly nothing wrong with it, but not a particularly strong or remarkable cider.

Hansen (6198) - Assentoft, DENMARK - OCT 8, 2010
Nice medium yellow coloured cider, clear, no partikles. Has a white head, mostly diminishing. I’m back to grandmoms apple-pie. So much apples.
