sulawang (545) - British Columbia, CANADA - APR 6, 2014
Visual: Sealed with a twisty top + real cork. Be careful this one is a gusher when opened. Pours a clear deep golden orange with a smallish mildy lasting bubbly head, clusters of fast activity, a thin layer of retention. Nose: fruity apple juice but without much sugar, airy and slightly acidic (lvl-4)-pungency Attack: dry, fizzy, yeasty Mid-palate: (lvl-0)-fruity-yet-dry sweetness, medium acidity, (MAIN) oaked apple, yeasty, light lemon citrus Finish: tart & dry apple finish. Summary: This one is deceptively dry considering the rich appearance and lively activity. I appreciate the burst of natural apple flavour but actually prefer my ciders somewhat sweeter. Thus I can’t say I love this one.

McTapps (3022) - Ruhrgebiet, GERMANY - JUL 22, 2013
Cider bought in Belgium and brought back home. Pours out of the bottle in a clear golden colour with medium body. Nose of ripe delicious apples. Taste of red ripe apples, caramel, grass and sour berries. Very smooth and easy to drink and not too sweet what I find important with ciders in general. Enjoyed it a lot.

A nice and very decent Cider with some apple and sugar in front and a slightly bitterness in the end. Refreshing, crispy, quite easy to go. A second bottle would have been nice.

CanIHave4Beers (2908) - Pouring Bus, Iowa, USA - MAY 24, 2013
Pours a pale golden, and basically looks like Champagne, similar color, similar persistent tiny bubbles, similar quick rise and fall of the head.

The aroma is perhaps a bit faint, but what is there is nice... plenty of apple some nice dustiness... a little white grape.

The flavor is very interesting, decidedly not one-noted... not even in the apple character. There are certainly some bitter apple notes here, distinct apple skin, less tart and fruity apple flavor from this one, although neither of these is left out all together. A touch sweet for something I would call Brut, but what do I know? Altogether it’s fairly dry and it certainly finishes dry. Some mustiness adds a small layer of complexity. Altogether there are far more soft and well rounded flavors here than anything brash, the bitterness is nice but not overwhelming, much as the tartness & dryness, everything works together very well, it’s not the most exciting cider but it’s well balanced, interesting, complex, and easy to drink. I can’t ask for too much more than that.

Jur (216) - NETHERLANDS - MAY 18, 2013
Bottle @ Lindenhof, Baambrugge. Pours very orangey, with quite some carbonation. Light nose, fairly sweet taste. Not many sours, bit applepie. Finishes more dryly. Not bad.

Countbeer (4072) - Best of E-Town mit ein Brauhaus, NETHERLANDS - JUN 17, 2012
Bottle: Quick disappearing white sizzly head leaves a headless clear yellow colored beer. Smell apple, malts, dust, cinnamon and yeast. Taste apple, red apples, dust, yeast and some sparkling notes. Aftertaste is sparkling apple juice with a light malty hetby spicy touch. Medium carbo, dry light sparkling mouthfeel, medium body and a light watery texture.

Sizzler80 (423) - Dublin, IRELAND - MAR 18, 2012
Straw coloured pour, almost urine like. Apples, apples and more apples. Tart, sweet and refreshing. Slight notes of pine and floral bouquet. It's a simple but very tasty cider with low carbonation and slightly dry. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

FatPhil (8632) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - MAY 27, 2011
750ml bottle (?, Haapsalu)
7 Beautiful dry appley aroma, a touch woody.
3 Opens with a pop. Rich clear orange, large fizzy head.
6 Quite full retronasals, sweetness, some resins, some esters. In contrast, it’s an incredibly dry taste, but without any acidity at all. Almost winey. Still quite appley, but not relying on the big bold fruity esters.
3 Really crisp palate, pleasant carbonation. A little watery, but at 4.5% and this level of dryness, that’s expected. Finish lightly bitter, a hint of apple skins.
13 Another superb low strength cider from CCLF.

kerolasa (409) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - DEC 5, 2010
Another cider dilettante recommendation, don’t read this too seriously. Looks like any cider, smell is interesting a bit like basement that has not been visited for long time and sweet. Taste is really light. There does not seem to be much acid from apples left, which makes this quite like nice juice. I do like this.

fonefan (33333) - VestJylland, DENMARK - FEB 17, 2010
Bottle 750ml.
Clear light to medium yellow orange color with a small to average, frothy - fizzy, fair lacing, mostly diminishing, off-white to white head. Aroma is moderate apple, red apple, toffee, barnyard notes, vanilla notes. Flavor is moderate to heavy sweet with a average to long duration, dry. Body is light to medium, texture is watery, carbonation is soft. [20100110]
