biz82 (1328) - austin, Texas, USA - MAR 28, 2006
2004 vintage. Pours a hazy dull gold with zero head. Funky, sour, wet wood aroma. Oaky in flavor with smoke, leather and lightly tart apple. Nice body with a sweetness that counter balances the tartness. Quite still on the palate.

bu11zeye (12363) - Frisco (Dallas), Texas, USA - MAR 10, 2006
(Bottle, 2002 vintage) Pours a lightly cloudy golden body with a thin white head. Aroma of apple, bandage, organic earthiness, and a hint of wood. Flavor of apple with a farm fresh organic quality. Dry finish.

peter (445) - Normal, Illinois, USA - MAR 5, 2006
Cloudy living appearance. Aromas of cider mills and an earthy smoke. Subtle latex. Flavour of fresh off the mill cider, slight lemon puckering. Very refreshing.

Nuffield (3900) - Roseville, Minnesota, USA - FEB 28, 2006
Hazy, deep yellow, low head. Aroma: band-aid, a sense of being natural, organic, pure, some bowling alley, and apple. Smooth and sour, excellent going down. One of the best French ciders I’ve had.

Lumpy (1802) - Carrollton, Texas, USA - FEB 26, 2006
Bottle. Hazy yellow body with a patchy network of bubbles. Nose-horsy, barn, band-aid, fresh plastic. Taste-apples, elastic, smokey, earthy, yeasty. Excellent, excellent cider. Great mix of cider, earth, yeast, and smoke. Has that classic wild yeast taste that is unique in unpasteurized French ciders

JK (5123) - St. Louis Park, Minnesota, USA - FEB 3, 2006
My first French cider and I loved it. Cloudy appearance like a wit with sediment. Some barnyard to the aroma as well as apples. Sweet sugar and sour funky weirdness.

hellomynameis (876) - Mayer, Minnesota, USA - JAN 30, 2006
2000 vintage. Explosive head on pour, lots of fine bubbles make up a head that disappears into the thinest coating. Sour aroma filled with funk and overly ripe apples. Light bubbly mouthfeel, reminiscent of champagne. Sour candy like taste, apples and aged wood.

   AROMA 6/10   APPEARANCE 3/5   TASTE 8/10   PALATE 3/5   OVERALL 15/20
Murphy (1759) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - DEC 5, 2005
2002 vintage. Pours a hazy pale golden, no head to speak of. Aroma is dry, apples, and a rich oak, maybe some ceder as well. Taste begins with sweet apples, quickly moves into a more dark, oaky, almost smokey flavor. Yes, certainly a smoke tinge. Finish is bitter, dry. Very light mouthfeel, but I find it appropriate. Very interesting stuff.

jigglyjock (165) - Longmont, Colorado, USA - NOV 27, 2005
2002 vintage. Tastes like a combination of champagne and natural apple juice. Aggressively carbonated like champagne. Had little floaties in the body. Over a excellent cider.
