tomxcs (321) - Berkeley, California, USA - AUG 19, 2006
750ml bottle, corked and caged, with a different label than what shows in the picture. Spicy, perry-like cider with dessert qualities. Dry, complex aftertaste with strong apple and woody flavors up front; a bit alcoholic.

Hazy gold with a medium sized, frothy, off white head. Flavor and aroma of sweet and lightly tart apples, cinnamon like spices, and some dry yeast. Definitely would not have guessed the 7.5%. Champagne like palate. Perfect for intermission in a large meal.

Thanks to Degarth for providing this one. Poured a transparent bronze. Aroma slightly resembled cider, but had a hint of cardboard throwing things off for me. Flavor was a modest cinamon apple sauce. Solid malt body and smooth. Would make for a nice session beer.

Courtesy of Degarth. Aroma and flavor are just a tasty as fuck apple cider or apple sauce, apples and cinnamon, it’s just good.

NYHarvey (2153) - New York, New York, USA - MAR 12, 2006
Total Wine and More in Tampa <P> Aroma is cinnamon applesauce and clove like spices. Still golden color with no head. Fore is tart granny smith tasting apples with a load of cinnamon and spice. Some pear notes as well. Simple, but very tasty and the alcohol is utterly unoticeable.

Walt (2449) - Austin, Texas, USA - JUL 26, 2005
Pour is light golden amber with a thin white head...smell is apple juice, alcohol, some dirt and spices too...taste is sweet and mellow with some apple juice and maybe some oxidation or musty taste towards the finish...

DocLock (7871) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 28, 2005
Bottle from Total Wine, Cary, NC. Great pop as I uncork it. The pour is hazy dark straw with minimal off-white head. Nice aroma of apples, some hopcit, and some soapy esters. Tastes very apply, with some perfumy florals and pronounced esters in the mid palate and finish. Gets more tart and champagny as it warms. The Cidre Dupont was better, but this is definitely the second best cider I’ve ever had.

SubstanceT (1092) - Saint Louis, Missouri, USA - MAY 22, 2005
This was just a very pleasant experience. Had this at the tasting at the Corkscrew in Urbana and boy it was good. Nice soft apple cider nose and taste. not strong and maybe a bit faint compared to other ciders. But still this was quite pleasant and good to drink at just about any time.

steview (1020) - San Francisco, California, USA - FEB 13, 2005
750ml to flute / same as argo0 and Frank - different bottle; black label with apple / aroma of apple juice, fizzy pour, white airy head that fully diminishes into a nice ring around the glass, some random lace, slightly active golden yellow body and slightly hazy... sweet all around, alcohol is hidden well, as it warms it becomes a bit cheesy and it loses a lot of crispness, which i really wanted... but anyway it’s lacking anything more than being just a regular apple cider. overall, though, i think it’s good quality, and tasty.

   AROMA 7/10   APPEARANCE 3/5   TASTE 6/10   PALATE 4/5   OVERALL 13/20
argo0 (11555) - Washington DC, USA - JAN 15, 2005
(Same as Frank -- a subdued label Bellot Cider, with same ABV). Small white head that quickly dissipates, atop a sparkling apple juice body. Aroma is sweet, strong apple, some caramel, light pear, wood, canned peach syrup. Taste is moderately sweet, apple, some pear. Some syrup in the body, no real crispness. Fairly similar to plain old apple juice, alcohol unnoticed, quite drinkable.
