4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
750ml bottle, at 5% ABV, but I’m pretty certain it is this cider. Pours a hazy pale gold, with fine trailing bubbles. Smoky notes, leather and dusty apple skin make up the aroma. A little lemon up front is soon overcome by charry wood and tart apple. Smoke and cured meats give it a nicely savoury finish. A high quality dry Normandy cider.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle. Cloudy orange body with loads of visible bubbles. Nose is wood, sawdust, apple cores, yellow apple peel, hints of floral honey tones. Taste is apple cores, yellow apple peel, sawdust, oak and hints of straw and dry leaves. Smooth, bubbly mouthfeel, semi-dry finish. Very nice cider in the Normandie tradition.

4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours a light golden with some very bubbly, effervescent white head. Nose is really funky and musty. Flavor is much the same, with some apple tartness, some yeasty notes. Why can’t all cider be this complex and intersting?

3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
2011 bottle. Slightly hazy golden pour with a thin white head. Aroma of apple wine. Flavor is slightly dry with champagne-like carbonation. Not bad but not my favorite.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
375 mL bottle from Willow Park Wines & Spirits in Calgary, served in a stem glass. Pours hazy orange-golden with a medium, rocky white head that fades immediately to leave a rim of bubbles. The nose has notes of apples and earth along with subtle lavender, rose and funk. The flavour is slightly sweet up front with apples, flowers and funk, but it dries out towards the end. The finish is long and dry with floral notes and grass. On the palate it is light in body with a dryish texture and Champagne-style carbonation. Overall, a great apple cider. Nicely floral and dry, it is quite complex and satisfying. 2014-03-10

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Very unique and tasty cidre with a hazy yellowish pour as well as a thin veil of white bubbly head. The nose is extremely floral and perfumey with notes of rose petals, lavender and grass clippings. Mildly sweet and a bit bubbly on the palate with a nice crisp finish. Not as flowery as the nose.

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Golden pour with a slight haze (if you don’t unsettle the sediment). Vibrant white head that dissipates rapidly to a champagne effervescence. Nose of cork, leather, funk, fresh fruit. Bright on the palate with strong notes of sour green apple, peach, grass and earth funk - the sourness is quick though leaving a slightly sweet green apple flavour and aroma. This is a really nice treat. Not a daily driver...

Great cider . I am not big expert but this is very good . Pale golden color , champagne head. Tart apple aroma . Light sweetness and light sourness in taste with oaks notes . Good balanced.

3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle. Aggressive carbonation, basic cider aroma. Strength of this is just that it’s so balanced. Neither sweet or tart stands out. Refined. High end, perhaps occasionally worth the price, but not so sure I need to have it again.
