2010 Very carbonated clear golden pour lots of receding frothy white head that leaves a ring ..... aroma is of barnyard, soured and fresh apples ... earthy and funky .... taste is crisp, earthy and of fresh apples, little funk and a little dry and sweetness that lingers into the finish ... mouthfeel is well balanced, smooth and a little lively .... awesome stuff has really aged well

Bottle 2009. Cloudy golden colour with a white foam. Dry, fruity, apples, earth, yeast, actually rather smoky and a bit funky as well. Nice!

Alphadelic (1751) - Portland, Oregon, USA - DEC 24, 2011
Dry, beautifully apply and with the smell of the rind from a ripe Pont-l’Évêque. Honey yellow, very fizzy and sweet tang though it definitely dries out with a woody finish. The apple flavour is rustic and fresh in a chalky kinda way.

Chipalsa (1306) - Florida, USA - DEC 16, 2011
With a pale yellow body and full of bubbles, looks like a champagne. The scent is sour and spicy, like fermented apples and decomposing leaves. Tastes dry and fruity, some green apples, lemongrass and dried oranges create a sweet smooth flavor. Sour and tangy undertones bring a nice dryness that cleanses the palate.

Bottle. 2009 vintage. Cork comes out with very little effort and a start to see the bubble rise up towards the neck, quick! glass before this thing overflows everywhere. I get wafts of farmhouse and bret as I pour this out. Wonderfully carbonated and full of vigor and spirit. The nose is a nice mix of old farm, funk, and green tart apple. Light mouthfeel. Cobweb, slighlty woody, sweet apple, and caramel. Surprised at how caramel tasting this is. Ends with a lingering funkiness. Overall, pretty impressed.

Nate (3557) - Indiana, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 4, 2011
From 2007 750mL bottle. Beautiful funky Normandy cider aroma, big apple and sweet musk notes. Takes me back to living in Reims. Medium amber hazy with thin white head. Medium watery body with medium to light carbonation. Starts much sweeter than I would have expected for a Brut. Great juicy apple flavors with just a hint of funk to it. A very nice cider and one I wish I could find more easily on this side of the state. Good stuff.

Had a bottle from Redlight Redlight. The vintage was 2008. Light and cloudy appearance, with very fine bubbles. The mouth feel was equatable to that of a champagne with the very light and refreshing bubbles. Amazing taste. One of my favorite ciders. Cant wait to crack open my 2010 bottle.

wedgie9 (1794) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - NOV 27, 2011
Tasted on 11/28/11 from a corked and caged 750mL bottle, 2010 vintage. Pours a clear, dark yellow with a thin, fizzy white head that quickly disappears, leaving nothing behind. There is a bit of sediment floating in my glass as well. The nose is a combination of sweet red and tart green apples with a strong aroma of floral apple blossom, perfumed lavender, and an earthy yeast note as well. The flavor is lightly sweet red apple up front, moving to the floral, tart green apple, and earthy yeast. The body is light with sparkling, champagne-like carbonation, and a long, tart, dry green apple skin, and tannic finish.

sweet, dry, champagne-like carbonation with a bit of rubber/earthy funk in the nose and taste.

NielsenRatings (8279) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - OCT 23, 2011
Bottle @ home. 2008 vintage. Cloudy, golden appearance with a carbonated head. Fairly sweet red apple, effervescent aroma. Quite carbonated, slightly funky, red apple pulpy, fairly sweet flavor with a light dryness.
