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

(Bottle, 2002 vintage) Pours a lightly cloudy golden body with a thin white head. Aroma of apple, bandage, organic earthiness, and a hint of wood. Flavor of apple with a farm fresh organic quality. Dry finish.

argo0 (11635) - Washington DC, USA - AUG 18, 2003
(750ml 2000) Quickly dissipating off-white head leaves a hazy golden liquid with champagne bubbles rising from within. Aroma is apple/pear, wood, sour, light barnyard. Taste is light sweet up top, apple with slight pear, turns apple juice briefly before becoming much more tart, finally finishing green apple. Were it a wine, I would call this semi-sweet. My rating is based on preference much more than style, as my experience in the world of cider is extremely limited.

brokensail (11529) - Orange County, California, USA - JUL 28, 2013
Bottle from Stearns. Golden pour with a huge white head and tons of fizz. Whew, this is funky. Smoke, blue cheese, apple, and yeast. A bit of peach, barnyard, and herbs. The flavor is pretty funky as well. Lots of barnyard, some leather, and earth. Herbs, apple, blue cheese, and peach. Light sweetness, but a very drying, almost tannic finish.

bhensonb (11489) - Woodland, California, USA - APR 22, 2012
2010 750 c&c from The Davis Beer Shoppe. Pours slightly hazy orange gold with a fizzy, transient white head. Aroma of earthy, ripe - slightly overripe? - apples. Med minus body. Light carb. Flavor is earthy, astringent apple - suggests red apples. This is really drinkable. Much like a local farm cider. I’ve had one better, but just one.

thewolf (11233) - Kolding, DENMARK - JUN 5, 2008
Bottle, bought @ Vinspecialisten, Kolding Storcenter.
[vintage 2005]
Pours clear golden with a green-yellow hue. When poured, there is a medium, fizzy white head, but it quickly disappears. Instead the stunning amount of fresh bubbles surching towards the top, forming a new, continually regenerating white head. Aroma is great, lots of fresh, green apples as well as a slight funkiness of overripe red apples. High and lively carbonation. Flavour is wonderfully balanced between slight woodiness, heavy fresh apples, light funk and a general good balance. Wonderful.
