3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Vintage 2014. Cidre fortifié légèrement doré avec jambes très courtes. Son nez de pommes et d’agrumes ne montre aucun signe d’alcool. Ses saveurs acidulées de pommes et de pamplemousse sont plaisantes. Le corps de moyenne densité lui va très bien. La finale fruitée a du punch. Dangereusement facile à boire.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
UPDATED: JUN 17, 2016 375mL bottle, pours a clear pale blonde. Aroma brings out bone dry apple skins, with a touch of citrus tartness. Flavour is both sweet and sour in good balance, with medium sweet apples balanced by a dry, almost citrusy tartness. Rather nice puckering quality on the finish that becomes more apparent with each sip. Not particularly complex but well put together and scarily drinkable. Very nice.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle @ Home. Thanks, Jake. Pale yellow color with just a slight pinkish hue. Good enough apple to it. Not quite as rich as you usually would expect or like. Somewhat like white wine. Some apple juice, a touch of melon, and a bunch of grape. Decent enough acidity. Just okay.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Golden color with a pinkish reflex. Nice aroma of stewed apples, with some citrusy sourness. Sweet and sour apple flavor, the sweetness level is very moderate, the tartness is indeed aggressive on the palate in the end; sweet, but hidden by a stronger acidity. Not complex, but at least sweet-sour, pleasant.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. Golden yellow body. Apple juice aroma alternates between sweet and tart apples. (7+) Sweet apple up front in the flavour and middle with a finish that like the aroma varies between quite tart and concentrated appley sweetness. Smooth medium palate avoids being syrupy. Not spectacular, but does what it does with aplomb.
