Rating from the summer. The green green grass of apples. Lots of fresh apple nose, very dry clean taste. Very nice and dry.

Bottle from the source, a little farmhouse out in Normandy. Very sweet lady and her dog greeted us. We sampled the ciders and the sweet one (doux) was the best of the samples so bought two bottles. One to share with GT2’s tasting group and one to crack in France. Unfortunately, this woman’s ciders were so good that we should have bought 2-3 of each but our luggage weight was maxed out after a trip to Cave a Bulles in Paris.

Poured hazy peach juice with sparkling carbonation. Peach, mango, vanilla aroma. Tastes heavenly with yellow fruit medley, tropical melons, rich peach yogurt. Essentially, ambrosia. I cannot believe the complexity of this one given it is only apples (probably a mix at that). And GT and I were kicking ourselves for passing up on their pear cider. Bahhh! Okay, we’re going back to France and trying to find even more random cideries because this one among others was a gold mine!

Thanks GT! Hazy peach colored pour. Dry apple skin, and I mean really bone dry. Lip smacking dry tartness that attacks the gums, though a touch of sweet apple sneaks in before yielding to the barrage of dryness. Man do I love it.

MrChopin (3258) - Baltimore, Maryland, USA - APR 2, 2012
transparent shimmering gold, thin white small bubbled ring. Nose is musty apple skin, honey, light toast, very bright and refreshing. Flavor shows more apple skin, lightly granny smith, plenty of honey sweetness but dry finish, sticky with light pineapple.

Lightly sweet and phenolic cider with really nice apple, hints of apple skin, funky yeast, light pear and honey.

sonnycheeba (3501) - Federal Hill, Baltimore, Maryland, USA - MAR 31, 2012
Bottle. Pours cloudy yellow/gold with thin, fizzy white head; short retention and spare lacing. Aroma is citrus and light sour fruit, straw, wheat, faint floral hops, apples, and pears. Flavor is a great malt and fruit ester balance; crisp, dry finish. Light body, medium carbonation, and low warmth.

oteyj (2130) - New Hampshire, USA - MAR 31, 2012
Hazy apricot pour with a thin white ring. Huge fresh apple character with amazing tartness and dryness, despite being their sweetest offering. Medium body with sparkling effervescence and a dry finish.

Travlr (11132) - Washington, Washington DC, USA - MAR 31, 2012
Bottle courtesy of GT2, thanks! Bright hazy yellow gold, small white head that settles quickly. Aroma of fresh peach, lemon, tangerine. Taste is freshly crushed apples, bitter lemon soda, sweet at first then transitions to mostly dry. Really nice.

GT2 (8380) - San Diego County, California, USA - MAR 27, 2012
750mL c&c red label from the farm. In short, this place makes some unreal ciders. A must try. Listed as 3%. Hazier glowing peach pour with very low carbonation. No bubbles in glass. Peach and mild olive nose. Decants to beautiful starfruit and mango, lychee, rambutan. Taste is super dry and sweet playoff with super rich peach cobbler. Ohhh. So f’ing yummy. Easy 9/10! Palate is perfect with amazing dry and oily fruit dichotomy. So good. Lychee mango and rambutan flavors abound with sweet Valencia orange. Amazing. Peach ice cream, mild yogurt and mild tangy sourness with huge mango and starfruit. Oh yeah.
