3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
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.

Bottle @ home. Orange pour with a short lived white head. Aroma is apple cider, caramel, and a slight spiciness. Kind of watery. Flavor is sweet and a bit watery. Apricot, apple juice, and caramel. A touch of grass and a light tartness to the finish.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
750 from ? I think Beer Geek. Pours amber gold with a fluffy white head. Near medium body with mild carbonation. Flavor is apple skin, cooked apple, pear, light yeast, and something like over-ripe fruit. It has substance and character. Much more so than common commercial ciders. It has a cooked character, but truthfully that’s an improvement over most ciders. In a very mild way it’s like baked cinnamon apple. Really nice drink.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
750mL bottle at Schilling, pours a fairly clear golden blonde with a small white head. Nose brings out a complex mix of syrup, barnyard notes and a touch of funk. Flavour isn’t as sweet, with some light farmhouse notes, light sweetness and oak. Complex and well-rounded. Really nice stuff, especially for the price point.

2.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Bottled. Yellow gold colour with short head. A sweet cider despite the Brut tag, some flavours, apple skin, with a touch of orange and acidity. Reasonable, particularly when eating.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
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.
