3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
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.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
(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

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
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.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
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!

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
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
