The Clos Normand range of ciders is made in the heart of the Normandy region from the choicest apples grown on trees. This cider owes its rich, full flavor to the quality of the fruit we use as well as to the care we take at each stage of the cider-making process. The result is a subtle alliance of sweet and sour taste, that is the trademark of Clos Normand.

750mL Bottle. Thanks, Sarah. Weak apple juice and cooked applesauce aroma. Flavors play soft, easy and cheap. A corky mushy apple juice segues into a tannic, fake-tasting caramel notion. This feels like the Woodchuck of French cidre. Sweet, cooked, and bland. Lacking the proper depth given by the right apples and the right production process.

Aroma is complex apples, a hint of fruit and a slight mustiness. The flavor is a mix of green and red apples and a mild sweetness in the finish.

750 ml to oversized snifter. Looks good; a transparent copper with good carbonation and thin white lacing. Smells solid; tart apple cider. Tastes decent; fairly well-balanced with an average mouthfeel. I prefer my ciders a bit drier, but this is still good - especially for the price.

weihenweizen (2369) - Charleston Area, West Virginia, USA - JUL 7, 2012
Refrigerated green 75 cl bottle which is corked and caged poured into a white wine glass. Pours deep golden/caramel, well carbonated, smooth texture, and light apple aroma. Taste starts off slightly tart/slightly sweet apple and finishes dry apple. Pretty good, but too simple to be one of the better ciders.

750mL c&c. Quick soda fizz atop caramel color added clear amber. Apple juice box nose. Taste is apple juice box with red apple skin. Not bad- but no complexity. Very poor for Normandie cidre standards. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

JStax (3961) - Devola/Marietta, Ohio, USA - MAR 5, 2012
Poured from a corked and caged 750 ml bottle. Appearance is translucent gold/copper with a quickly dissipating white head of foam. It never really had a head of any sort, but the foam that appeared as I poured was gathered around the edges and appeared where the cider was pouring into the glass. Aroma was reminiscent of a tart Honeycrisp or Riku apple. I wouldn’t say this is sour, just tart. Taste is essentially the same as the aroma. Slightly tart and sweet. Mouthfeel is light and smooth, as the alcohol content would indicate. Definitely a thirst quenching cider. I can definitely see myself giving this one another go.

Bottle from leesburg vintner. Apple vinegar notes on the nose. Pours appleish. Dry without being sour or bitter. Nice apple flavor. Finishes clean. Not a big fan of dry cider but this is pretty solid.

magsinva (1006) - Virginia, USA - FEB 26, 2012
Bottle - Leesburg Vintner - pours a clear orange with a white head. Aroma is of sweet apples like apple sauce with a sour finish. Taste is a touch sour with a dry finish. Overall, a nice refreshing cider

750, corked and baled. Pours a crystal clear medium amber with a loose and bubbly white head. Mild red apple skin nose. Fizzy medium body, very light and refreshing. Great tangy red apple mid palate, a bit on the subdued side with great balance and approachability. This is a cider you could buy by the case for any crowd at an outdoor party. Mild finish. Great stuff.

Pours relatively clear with aggressive carbonation. Apple and some vinegar in both the aroma and flavor. Not really a cider guy but this seems pretty average to me.
