750 ml corked bottle. Short-lived white head, pale copper colored body. Inviting aroma of over-ripe apples. Wooden notes and a hint of vermouth. Taste is sweet, spiced apples. Some sour fruit notes underneath. Good body. Both sweet and light astringent apple-fruity finish. A very nice one.

Bottle @ TFODRBSG, Ulfborg, 2008.
[thank you, yngwie]
Pours clear golden with a small, frothy, white head. Aroma is soft apples, some tarty woodiness as well. Fine carbonation, okay mouthfeel. Flavour is surprisingly sweet, with only weak dryness. Not fantastic but a good quencher.

Hazy golden orange, with head that dissipates quickly. Champagne carbonation umps out at you quickly, although not overwhelming in the least. Carbonated apple-juice.. carmel, vanilla, extremely smooth.
