Normandy varietal cider made from Gros OEillet apples. The cider results from apples harvested from our own orchards. No added sugar, preservative or yeast, naturally sparking.
Made in the modern French factory manner with added fungal pectin methyl esterase and calcium to induce a keeve, followed by nitrogen flotation, then a slow wild yeast fermentation in refrigerated tanks, followed by centrifugation to remove most of the yeast and a final step in a pressure tank so the natural CO2 can be filled into the bottle with the cider under counterpressure. It's then been pasteurised in the bottle.

AshtonMcCobb (5382) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - APR 21, 2012
Pours amber with gentle bubbles. The nose has tart apples. The taste is more like Apple tart. The palate is medium bodied with a tangy depth. Overall, I like this.

Oakes (15806) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAR 27, 2011
Dark straw, verging on gold with a sparkle. Light soft character - simpler and more juice-like than its somewhat tannin-like aroma would indicate.

Beershine (5224) - The Sunshine State, Florida, USA - MAR 9, 2011
Bottle from store in Ireland. Dark gold, nice fizz. Aroma is honey and caramelized, roasted apples. Very refreshing. Too sweet and clashes. A good amount of must rescues it but otherwise it’s too sugary, especially to be called brut. Overall it’s drinkable.

Bottle, bought @ Sainsbury’s, Camden, London.

Pours sparkling gold, head fizzes away immediately. Lots of bubbles surching upwards. Aroma has lots of apples, sweet red ones, some marzipan and almonds, just a little vanilla. High carbonation, light dryness. Flavour is a bit weak, some good sweet apples. A mild tartness and dryness in the finish. Very fair cider.

downender (7960) - Bristol, Gloucestershire, ENGLAND - SEP 14, 2008
Bottle from Sainsburys. Effervescent, golden in colour with no head. I can’t add much to what has been said below - plenty of juicy apples, a hint of vanilla, but not much character beyond this. Still a pleasant enough summer drink.

gaq (8) - , Derbyshire, ENGLAND - AUG 1, 2008 does not count
Bottle from Sainsburys. Pours orange/golden with no head. Aroma is mostly apples, flavour is ’crunchy apples’ lacks the usual sour finish of most ciders.

Fin (9684) - Merton, Oxfordshire, England, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - APR 8, 2008
Bottle from Kidlington Sainsburys had this 05-04-08 Pours mid golden with white bubbly head, reasonably tasty cider but a touch sweet, quite crisp and good flavour but still missing something to be a very good cider.

reakt (950) - Greater London, ENGLAND - JUN 1, 2007
UPDATED: SEP 1, 2007 Bottle from Sainsburys. Golden with no head. Sweet real apple aroma with a little yeast, rings true in the taste also. Have to say you can really taste the apples, even has that syrupy apple juice swallow. Quite gassy with a medium body. Clean and refreshing, it’s nice to actually taste real apples rather than the usual artificial flavour.
