   AROMA 9/10   APPEARANCE 4/5   TASTE 8/10   PALATE 5/5   OVERALL 18/20
otakuden (1783) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - MAR 1, 2012
Appearance: sun-bleached orange with a steady stream of bubbles thanks to bottle-conditioning. Pours vivacious with a solid head and bubbly collar.
Nose: freshly pulped apples and orchard musk. Tingle of tartness and tannins in the back; apple skins. Green pears. Musk, leather, and hay dust along the edges. Cinnamon powder.
Palate: pulpy, chewy, fresh. Skins and seeds and musk follow fresh pressed apple flesh. Full mouthfeel – chewy and bubbly in front, then creamy and juicy with a dry musky finish. Tartness in the middle follows into the finish. Green pear musk.
Final Thoughts: whoa… A champagne of ciders to be sure. Of the earth. Terroir. Dirtoir. Laden in orchard bloom, musk, dew, and juicy breeze. It would be interesting to see how this cider would age and so I must acquire another bottle or three.

Bottle. Hazy light gold with active carbonation and no head. Aroma is plastic and earthy funk. Taste is sour apple with a weird bacon and bandaid finish. Crisp dry palate. Pretty weird.

DuffMan (6146) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - MAR 3, 2014
Bottle. Very hazy umber-hued, low carbonation. Aroma is very complex: funky and cheesy and appley. Equally complex palate of sweet apple pie, vanilla, spice, cobwebby spaces, light cheese rind, raw dough, wet clay, leather. Holy smokes this is an incredible drinking experience!

wnoble (1214) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - JAN 5, 2014
2011. Nose is leather, funk, apples, tart skins, rubber, acetone, blue cheese. Flavor is stilton washed down with applejuice, yeast, funks, basements, slight rubber. Pretty nice. Not as dry as I recall the regular version being for some reason.

jcr (2112) - Jasper, Indiana, USA - NOV 24, 2013
Bottle. 2011 vintage. Pale golden body with a fizzy white head. Aroma of tart apple, leather, lacquer, barnyard, peaches, musty basement. The flavor is moderately to heavily sweet and moderately acidic. It finishes moderately sweet and moderately acidic. Medium body, watery/sticky texture, lively carbonation. Great balance of apple and funkiness. Taste of apple, then leather, then peach, then barnyard finished with a dry tartness. Complex and refined.

nuplastikk (4123) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - NOV 11, 2013
2010 bottle shared at Levi’s. Ugly, farty apple factory aroma. Taste makes up for it. Slightly hazy yellow-orange body. Not much of a head. Doesn’t taste like it aged well.

goodbyeohio (34) - Portland, Oregon, USA - OCT 28, 2013
375ml bottle, 2009 vintage squarely indicated on the front label. 10912 is the code on the bottom front of the label, FWIW. pours a golden orange with a super retentive head. there is apple in the aroma, but it is enrobed by notes of bleu cheese, must, leather, and fresh carpet. it hits the palate equally with applesauce, smoke, and basement flavors. the taste is probably the most complex i’ve experienced in a cider. the lingering flavor is concentrated apple with a hint of campfire, which is suprisingly tame for something produced with such wild methods. this really represents the apex of cidermaking, at least until someone develops a new layered experience. drinking this makes me want to seek it out at the source, learn from its maker, and eat a meal in Victot-Pontfol paired with this exquisite beverage. The best I’ve had to date.. thanks Sean!

Lukaduke (1735) - Portland, Maine, USA - OCT 27, 2013
Pours a medium to light gold color with a finger of white fizzy foam. The nose is ripe tannic apples, dusty fieldgrass, touch of cured meat and stone. The palate follows with a touch of sweet baked apple on the front end... from there some warm spice rolls in with cured meat and a bit of funky must.
