Bottle with Ann. Pours a fizzy pale gold with lots of short lived head. Aroma has a lot of horsey brett character. Taste is a great balance of sweet apple flavors and a funky brett influence. Very carbonated, couldn’t drink more than one. Really good.

Pours a clear orange with a huge white head that clears up as fast as it appears. Sweet noes with some funk. Borderline between nectar and brut, finishes clean, not horribly acidic considering it’s a cider.

Bottle. Musty horseblanket, very brett-like, and light fruity aroma. Clear effervescent golden. Brett-like horseblanket, sweet apple, tart, light spice flavor. Light fizzy body, dry finish. My first French cider, and I’m duly impressed. Not disappointed that I chose this for my 1000th rating.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle - Huge pop of the cork on this one, right as I loosened the cage. Pours light clear amber with a thin bubbly white head. Nose is plastic and leather funk, dry apple, and real light baking spice. Taste is a bit sweeter, with the plastic/leather character that recedes through the finish, letting a semi-sweet apple peek through. Smooth, light and effervescent, with big-time carbonation.

What a great cider. Pours with a fizzy, medium-sized white head. Aroma of apples fresh off the tree and a lightly tart barnyard funk. Moderately sweet natural apple flavor perfectly paired with a nice acidic tartness. Smooth, tasty and refreshing. Dry and slightly tart finish.
