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.

Big green bottle with a cork. Pop the lid and yer greeted with a friendly fruity aroma, almost like some kinda berries. Pour yeilds a pale lager appearance with plenty of sparkling. Taste is very good but it has this background flavor that I can’t really identify, reminds me of salad greens a little. A very decent amount of carbonation sizzles the tongue and I like it. Goes down really easy even tho it has a tad more dryness that I can appreciate. In the background I think I do detect a shade of tartness, but just barely. Overall a good cider tasting experience, does not have that fruity alko pop feel to it that is so common with US ciders.

This corked and caged bottled cider from a bottle shop poured a medium sized head of frothy fine to medium sized white colored bubbles that were very quickly diminishing and left behind a transparent softly carbonated orange colored body. The mild aroma was apple peel. The crisp mouth feel was tingly at the start and at the finish then flattened out after a while. The mild flavor contained notes of apple. A decent one that I would consider buying again.

illidurit (2258) - San Francisco, California, USA - APR 4, 2009
Pours apple juice gold with a fizzy off-white head. Aroma is of apples simmering in brown sugar, and a touch of yeastiness. Flavor is just about exactly the same. On the sweet side for cider. Highly effervescent. Pretty decent.

WeeHeavySD (3361) - Portland, Oregon, USA - OCT 2, 2008
750ml shared with a friend who likes cider. Pours orange with a bright white ring. Nose is very sweet with a hint of yeast consistent with a champagne like quality. Taste is very nice with lots of apples, though its a bit thin. Overall not bad.

Under-rated. Golden pour with head like champagne. Aroma is crisp of apples. Taste is sweet and sharp in nature with a nice apple bite. Nice cider.

yespr (36972) - Copenhagen O, DENMARK - JUL 28, 2008
75 cL bottle, bought in a German supermarket (Ullrich Hit, Mohrenstr, Berlin) as Clos Normand Herb, 4%, produced at the Le Theil-sur-Huisne facility. Pours clear and golden orange with a fizzy white head. Sulphorish dry apple aroma. Flavour follows this closely with a mix of sulphor and apple, quite dry. Ends mild acidic and dry. Pleasant and flavourful Normandic cider. Goes well with salmon.

BMan1113VR (7909) - Los Angeles, California, USA - JUL 22, 2008
Pours with a quickly vanishing white head covering a clear, deep golden body. Aroma of overripened apples and vinegar with a bit of caramalized oxidation. Taste like a no alcohol cheap children’s cider (overly sweet and bland). Slightly on the fizzy side.

rudolf (2345) - Buffalo, New York, USA - MAY 5, 2008
Rich gold, no head, lots of visible carbonation. Nose is sweet apple goodness, a little must. Some woody cherriness I can’t quite place. Flavor is a mix of sweet & acidic apple. There is mustiness & undefined (non-apple) fruit juice. High carbonation keeps it light but its still somewhat slippery on my tongue. Odd.

Nice golden color with a medium head/ Aroma is appley with some brown sugar sweetness. Sweet apple flavor with some light tanginess and lots of sugar. Pretty good overall and it hit the spot for the mood I was in.
