Goldorak (439) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - NOV 1, 2009
Bottle dated 2003. Opaque, and peach colored. Apricots, peaches, the aroma was really fresh for a bottle so old. A bit of cork adds to the fun. Still quite lively on the tongue after all these years. The taste was really interesting, a mix of apple seeds give it a bit of acidity, and the flavor is reminiscent of a good, homemade ice tea. I was expecting a lot more farmhouse flavors and for it to be drier, but I liked it.

badgerben (4386) - Blaine, Minnesota, USA - AUG 16, 2009
Cork vintage stamped 2004; tasted August 16, 2009. First and foremost, the cork looks disgusting. Very worn, dark, nearly black, and the interior isn’t much better. Almost looks moldy. Thankfully, it seems to just make the clear golden liquid in the bottle smell that much more like an ancient stone cellar. Quite musty, honeyish and red apple skin. The high carbonation hits first, and doesn’t give up. Musty apple flavor. Lots of wood, cork, leather, earth, and slightly over-rippened apples. Sweeter than most Norman cider, but manages to still finish dry. Excellent. Bordelet is still underrated.

ekstedt (5355) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - JUN 9, 2009
Bottle (75 cl) from Systembolaget. Deep golden, tiny brief white head. Slightly buttery green and yellow apple aroma with notes of wood and leather. Medium bodied, medium carbonation. Fairly dry with a bit too much peel bitterness.

Clear yellow color, small white head. Acidic, sweet, some butter scent. Acidic, apply, dryish taste. Medium mouthfeel; dry aftertaste, almost harsh. No bitterness, though some mouthpuckering, perhaps from apple seeds.

m4rest88 (381) - Beverly Hills, California, USA - DEC 14, 2008
Pours with a light brown hue with absolutely no head whatsoever. Aroma is of sweet apples, champagne, and a tad bit of alcohol. Flavor is slightly astringent at first but then evolves into a sweet apple taste that tastes slightly like apple pie. Medium mouthfeel, with lively carbonation! A great Cider - done know why its in the 66th percentile!

Bottled at Byns Crêperie & Ciderie, Stockholm. Clear deep golden, small brief head. Pleasant yeasty leathery flavour with a fruity intense apple flavour. Mid sweet and lightly sparkling. Juicy with tannic apple skins bitterness. Very drinkable and quite complex.

BMan1113VR (7834) - Los Angeles, California, USA - JUL 8, 2008
2005 Bottle. Pours with a small, light white head covering a clear golden body. Some plastic and bitter granny apples in the aroma. Taste is a bit musty apple, and light barnyard in the finish. Pleasantly light levels of carbonation, slightly dry and sour (puckering) mouthfeel.

fiulijn (14350) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUN 15, 2008
Corked bottle, from La Grande Epicerie (Le Bon Marché), Paris
Hazy golden color. Nice aroma of mature apples, light esters and vinegar, light almonds. Good body structure, due to the residual sugars too; good flavor of apple juice, woody, tannic, a bit astringent and with a very light sourness. Balanced and complex. Very good.
