This top-of-the range cider is elaborated according to an original process, which intensify the aromatic flavours of apples and confer to it a typified taste, rich in flavours and very fruity .

Gift from SJ. A nice bit of soure fruits, raisins and apples. Not really a style I like, but not bad for what it was. A bit of a sweet finish.

7 Gorgeous baked apple aroma - tons of apple, but with some sweet brown sugar too.
3 Deep amber, brief head, fizzy.
7 Lovely sweet fruity retronasals - again, baked apple. On swallowing, the sugars subside immediately, and you’re left with the full apple, skin and all.
4 Crisp palate, lively carbonation. Finish wonderfully dry, you get a little shiver down your spine.
14 I’ve had Ecussons like this before, given them massive scores, but on having then again, they’ve not had the magic again, so I’m feeling a little reticent to splash out with a huge dollups of points. However, one thing’s clear - this is beyond doubt a truly delicious filtered cider.

Decent apple aroma but not overly complex. Orange-yellow colour. Decent apple taste, but again lacking much layering of flavours. Just a straight ahead cider, but a good one.

Bottle, 75cl corked, courtesy of faroeviking. It’s a clear,a golden sider with some off-white bubbles forming some sort of head. Lovely aroma and flavor with ripe apples and something leading my thoughts to an orchard in the cold autumn evenings. Hints of cores as well in the flavor. Dry, astringent and palate cleansing. Apples in the finish. A quenching and nice one, even though it’s a bit hard on the stomach. 090822

Botella bought in Paris. Unclear golden. Nice sweet apple aroma, bit woody. Good mouthfeel. The flavour is very pleasant with apples, a good sweetness, some wood, bit tart and with a dry apple sweet fruity finish.

Maria (10214) - Thisted, DENMARK - SEP 4, 2009
The color is yellow-golden with oven baked apples in the aroma. The flavor has a light sweetness with notes of oven baked apple, wood and its dry and slightly sour, the third in the series – all nice, but this one is very, very nice.
