Ungstrup (29170) - 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 (3669) - 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 (11131) - 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.
