3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
12oz Bottle, purchased at Ferme Guyon - Chambly, QC. Sulfur and earth aroma, nicked with plum and pear. Flavors are okay, but this is a pretty middling cider, with a bit too much sulfur high up and a listless interior. Somewhat coarsely acidic, a nip sweet. Feels a bit denuded and overly clean.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
(33 cl) Un liquide jaune pâle très effervescent. Un nez de fromage Oka et de vieilles pommes. Des saveurs très peu prononcées de fruits du verger. Une bouche légère et modérément pétillante. Une texture mince. Une finale qui rappelle les pelures de pommes. Bref, un cidre, qui est pour moi, très peu impressionnant.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pale straw colour with a lot of large carbonation. Light apple aroma with a nice dry aroma with a lot of lovely apple character. Soft and a little bit tart as well. Very nice light aroma with a touch of soft apple skin. Soft and tart although as it warms, the tartness fades back and there is a touch more apple sweetness on the back. Pretty solid dry sparkling cider.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours with modest head that’s gone quite quick, has a modest bright gold champagne look to it. Aroma of goat cheese and slight apple hints. Flavour is a very dry cider with soft wood and apple hints. This is excellent.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours a very clear light yellow colour. Aroma is a very light apple and alcohol. Taste is again very light apple and wine. Dry finish. Not bad for sipping but not a top cider.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle. Pours a clear light straw yellow. Clean sweet apple aromas, champagne yeast. Starts light and sweet and delicate. Finishes with a lovely tartness and lactic acidity that lingers long afterwards. Really delicious. The guy at Peluso’s where I bought it recommended mixing it half and half with Dieu du Ciel’s Rose Hibiscus. Tried that after having it by itself, and while I really liked the DdC beer, and this cider… I found them better separate. I don’t get the low reviews on this one… it’s quite tasty, and has a really nice acidity that a lot of (especially the slightly more commercial (but still not large)) American ciders just don’t have.
