Big blue cheese nose that is overwhelming. Moldy, funky, and rotten smells as I’d expect. Tasted really nice for a normandy style cider but I bet i drank it too fresh.

hivemind (778) - New York, New York, USA - NOV 27, 2012
Bottle split with Erica at Spuyten Duyvil on 11/24/2012. Color is a medium to dark gold, solid and glassy with no head. Darker color than expected for a cider which was cool. Never had a cider like this before - extremely yeasty and higher carbonation than I have had within the style. Almost effervescent. Aroma and flavor are yeasty, barnyardy, and light citrus. Really great sipper.

yngwie (15566) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - NOV 10, 2012
Bottle, 375ml. Vintage 2010. It’s an almost clear one, golden in color and with some bubbles on top. The aroma is both cellar-ish and apple-ish, with apple cores and orchard. It’s full-bodied, tart and quite effervescent, having your cheeks clinging to your teeth. It’s very tasteful, with cellar, orchard and lots of apples and apple cores, really balanced and pleasant. Lasting finish. A superb cider I’ll certainly hunt down again. 121110

DeputyAndy (636) - Ambler, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 26, 2012
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.

dankman (254) - Somewhere in, Ohio, USA - OCT 23, 2012
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.

queenholly (3516) - South Whitley, Indiana, USA - OCT 20, 2012
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.
