37.5 cL bottle. Pours clear and golden yellow with a fully gone head. Nice phenolic and dry apple aroma. Smooth apple flavour with a nice wooden and almost smoked note. Lingering sweet yet subdued finish with smooth fruity note.

Ungstrup (29223) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - DEC 25, 2006
An unclear orange cider with a fast disappearing light yellow head. The aroma is powerfully of acidic apples, with notes of wood and berries mixing in. The flavor is sweet combined with an acidic apple note, leading to a dry end with notes of wood and apples. The body is a bit thin.

Papsoe (25088) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - DEC 17, 2006
(Bottle 75 cl) Hazy, pale golden with a white head. Very tart, almost vinegary in the nose. The body is medium with sweet apple flavours. Again this odd composition of a tart aroma and a sweet flavour. But nice indeed. 151206

oh6gdx (20299) - Vasa, FINLAND - SEP 9, 2009
Bottled. Cork made a nice flight already when removing the metalpart, yet no fountain came out of the bottle. Bigtime earthy and barnyardy notes along with some sour apples as well as mild vanilla and herbal notes. Flavour is quite earthy and dusty along with some apples as well as some wooden notes. Biting carbonation. Rather dry, but yet very refreshing cider.

fiulijn (14380) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - FEB 11, 2005
Vintage 2003
Misty golden color. A very nice aroma of mature apples, with a touch of vanilla, smokeyness and young oak. Tha flavor is sweet enough in the front, well structured, with an interesting light smokeyness, getting a bit more astringent at the end. This is good stuff!

Bottle at EBF08. Weak apple aroma. Almost clear golden colour. Good citric apple flavour, nice and round. Finally a cider that is not crap.
