Hamirubi (564) - Waarschoot, BELGIUM - JUN 8, 2016
33cl bottle at home (8 VI 2016). Swiftly diminishing artificial soda white collar, topping a cognac-like, very clear orange brew. Neat looking cider with a nose of some vague spirit, wild yeasts (brett even), apple juice, geuze. The mouthfeel is pretty well carbonated, with a faint and watery body... all this hides a sweet apple, apple juice soda, mildly sweetened cider. This could have been a top cider, if it just had a firm body richer in taste. The fermentation clearly hints at a lambic funkness. A beautiful premiss, yet the whole is too faint. A pitty!

minutemat (4147) - Shrewsbury, Shropshire, ENGLAND - JUN 6, 2016
500ml bottle. Pours clear gold, sparkling. Aroma is syrupy sweet commercial cider. Taste is much of the same, with a rich golden full-flavour, but far too cloying and sickly sweet. Cider for the masses.

mithe (1489) - Opava & Brno, CZECH REPUBLIC - JUN 6, 2016
(Can 0,5l) (brother brought from Ireland)
Clear, light orange-golden color. Quickly done, white head. Sweet aroma of apples, champagne-like, wine. Taste is sweet with apples. Very fizzy carbonation. Sweet, dry finish. Quite sweet but refreshing.

Rotaldinho (148) - Paris, FRANCE - MAY 22, 2016
Cider is not beer and this one is not the best. It’s not a good one. I don’t advice it.

sjorsvdg (409) - NETHERLANDS - MAY 17, 2016
Deze cider heeft een geur die doet denken aan lambiek (in de verte). In de smaak zitten rijpe appelen, maar ook droge, hartige tonen. Niet te zoet.

Enteogenisk (144) - Bålsta, SWEDEN - MAY 2, 2016
(33 cl bottle in in rocks-glas.) Pours an apricot to orange hue and the aroma is marked with apples and yeast. The taste has a clear fresh red apple character with a little smoke. Made me want to try it with a peated a dram and yep, that was great! :)

12 oz bottle shared by a friend, thanks Tiny! Labeled as Magners. Clear golden orange with no head. Aromas of light apples and champagne. Tastes of apples, light wine. Light body with a dry finish.

Block (2206) - Indianapolis, Indiana, USA - APR 26, 2016
A dryer cider. Not too great. Some apple and some alcohol. Not sweet, which is good, but the flavor was a little off.

sudomorph (1079) - Barrie, Ontario, CANADA - APR 9, 2016
Pours a clear, slightly peach colour. Aroma has slightly tart notes of apple. Taste is slightly sweet and a hint tart with notes of red apple and a bit of sugar. Medium body with a medium-high carbonation. Lively mouth feel with a mildly syrupy texture. Overall pretty tasty. I can see why it is popular.
