UPDATED: DEC 15, 2006 Nice cider with a slight hazy gold-bronze color and with a fine livelyness. Aroma is very much barnyard like, it has a smooth sweetness in the nose with little hints of cane sugar, cinnamon, cardemom and sweet, slight oxidized apples. The taste is fruity, smooth and complex. It is fine-fizzy in the mouth, and the honeyed sweetness works well with the soft sourness of the apples and the soft spice of the nutmeg like spiceyness. Thanks a lot Alex (Fiulijn) for sending me this one. The traject was Switserland to Italy, from Italy to Sweden, then Sweden Denmark, and from Denmark with Jeppe to Belgium. Thanks !

2004 bottle in late 2006. Hazy gold, visible carbonation. Nose is tart apple, musty air, a bit of oak, maybe a hint of strawberry. Flavor is tart apple, some sweetness, oak. Bitter, almost astingent notes. Wonderful effervescent dry apple finish. Becomes much sweeter when paired with spicy foods.

2005 bottle - tart and medicinal, slightly chemical but it’s a natural chemical smell not a manufactured scent. apple and pear and must - not so sour but clearly not sweet. effervescent and light; exciting to taste and drink despite its $10 pricetag. apples CAN make good alcohol!

2004. Light hay body, sightly hazy and a very small white head that clings to the glass. Nose is heavy horseblanket, straw, cobwebs, light cheese and lots of lactic acid. Flavor is apple juice, pears, lemon, just a touch of acidity and moderate sweetness. The mouthfeel is light and lively with bright acidity on the finish. Lovely stuff.

Hazy yellow with white head, which disappears quickly. Clear apple aroma, with freshness and a slight bitter! Beautifull.....

Pours a hazy yellow with a medium white head that quickly fades. The aroma is of apples and decomposing vegitation/ripening cheese. In the mouth, it’s very dry, with a subtle apple flavor and again a hint of funkiness. Good, though drier than I prefer.

2004 vintage bottle. Poured with extreme carbonation settling to nothing. Small lively bubbles continuously came from the bottom of the glass. Brilliant yellow-orange color. I don’t normally drink cider’s however, this one has been back to my fridge numerous times. Great for when you had too much beer the night before. Delicious and delicate apples and sugar in the taste. Most refreshing! I love Bouche

Numenor (871) - Richmond, Virginia, USA - AUG 4, 2006
UPDATED: AUG 5, 2006 2002 vintage -- Nice golden cider body with minimal head, though it did look like the bottle was going to explode. Excellent aroma, tart with some nice grassy funk. Outstanding flavor, apple with a bit of sourness, light malts with some grass. Very nice and musky. Tart, springy ending.

2002 Bottle. Clear yellow body with a small fizzy white head. Aroma of sour apples. Mild funky apple flavor, some earthiness in the background.

UPDATED: JUL 18, 2006 2004 vintage: Not a bad cider, but nothing spectacular. Aroma is nice, but nothing really wowed me. Palate is smoother than other ciders. Flavor is good but mild. Nothiing really blew me away.
