Bottle as "Cidre Rose", a little deep and cristal clear gold colour, fresh perfumed apple aroma, quite sweet ripe apple flavour with a mellow balancing sourness, lively carbonation. Pleasantly easy to drink and very satisfying.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
750ml bottle (Kaubamaja, Tallinn)
Dry dusty apple aroma, a little subdued. Pleasant reddish tint, pours a bit fizzy, then goes flat. Full in the mouth - plenty of sugars to fill it out, but a nice sharp bite too, and carbonation crispens it up as well. Full of apples, maybe those cinnamon apples, very juicy. Very sweet, in a French cider context, but very well balanced and enormously drinkable. Perfect as an aperitif, the acidity is lovely, and the whole thing just gets the juices going.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
330 ml bottle.
Pours an amber colour with a small foamy head. Aroma of sharp, tart red apples and some wooden notes. Flavour is really packed with juicy red apples, wood, rhubarb and some citric tartness. Some sugary notes as well. Light bodied, slick mouthfeel and high carbonation. A big apple finish with light tartness. Intense? No, but very juicy nonetheless.

Bottle. Dark orange body, small head. Sweet, slightly vinous apple aroma. Rich but a bit plain taste of apples, some mushrooms in there too. Finish is juicy, not dry.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Orange colour, plenty of fluffy head that sticks around longer than usual for a cider. Aroma is sour apples and some wood. Taste is soft apples with a murky very sweet apple finish. Very sweet in fact, I guess that’s where the "intense" part comes in.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Corked bottle, from Galeries Lafayette, Paris
Light amber color, with just a shade of red. Sweet aroma of apples and caramel, cheap.There is still some sweetness, some apple juice flavor, and a final acidity that doesn’t complement the sweetness, instead it disturbs; traces of wood; the final is quite acidic and citrusy. It’s like an apple juice, medium sweet, with a generous splash of lemon. Unbalanced.
