m4rest88 (388) - 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!

omhper (22752) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - SEP 3, 2008
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 (7914) - 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 (18101) - 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.

Ungstrup (33429) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - MAY 31, 2008
Bottled. A hazy golden cider. The aroma is sweet with notes of apples and wood, andd so is the flavor, leading to a dry tart finish.

obguthr (5311) - Staunton, Virginia, USA - APR 26, 2008
Buttery and quite phenolic aroma. Clear amber color. Apple flavor, decently sweet and tart. Musty and phenolic underneath. Bandaid finish. As low as this rating is, it is the best thing I’ve had so far from Eric Bordelet.

thewolf (11878) - Kolding, DENMARK - MAR 28, 2008
Bottle, bought @ Kolding Vinhandel.
Pours rather dark for a cider, almost a woody copper. A small creamy film head settles on top. Aroma is sweetish apple with a light fruity tartness behind it. There is some flowers in there as well as a little oak. Mouthfeel is very nice, full and oily first, then turning very dry. Flavour is a bit understated, some dry sweet apples and a little woodiness. Good cider, but I don’t think it’s worth its high price tag.

mullet (849) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - DEC 20, 2007
This is the darkest cider I’ve seen - quite a clear deep gold, which makes it look like beer. Plenty of rich, jelly-ish (not jellyfish) apple in the aroma much like Thorogoods’ stuff has, combined with a touch of floral (violet) yeast. They’ve done a very good job of retaining the character of the fruit. There’s an intense, silky, sugary sweetness which doesn’t linger into the finish but the only balance is provided by some rather sharp, astringent, apple core tannins. No appreciable acidity, and not much character besides sweetness and tannin. Carbonation is only moderate and the level of astringency is disturbing. If this is "brut" I can’t imagine what the "doux" is like. Apple juice from the supermarket has way better balance. And if you’re wondering whether to cough up the big bucks to try some of this stuff, I give it nine don’t bothers out of ten.

Grovlam (4199) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - OCT 4, 2007
Bottle. [Courtesy of Hildigöltur, quality tasting @ Papsoe] Small fizzy white head that mostly diminished. Fair display of lacework. Light cloudy amber color. Aroma of citrus and lemon, dusty grainy feel, some earthy notes, sour apple. Medium bodied with a very dry texture and a lively carbonation. Heavy sweet and light to moderated acidic flavor. Dry and fresh apple finish. 28-09-2007
