3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Sample at a tasting at Systembolaget, March 2013. (Label says Sidre Brut Tendre, vintage 2012)
Clear golden with a small head. A lot of apples both in the aroma and taste. A bit tart with notes of apple cake, wood and something that reminded of leather. Not that sweet. Actually refreshing and with a dry finish.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle, 75cl corked. It’s a clear, dark golden cider, very lighlty sparkling and with a thin layer of bubbles on top. A bit weak on the nose, mostly apples of course, but also some sulphurish, earthy notes. Rather weak on the palate too, but not bad in any way. Apples, apple cores and some cellar hints. Apples and some acidity in the finish. Quite nice anyway. 120124
