2012 Vintage. 375mL bottle at Brouwer’s Cafe, pours a clear blonde with a large white head that quickly dissipates. Aroma is wonderful, with loads of brett and farmhouse character. Flavour is funky as hell, with loads of farmhouse funk, yeast, and champagne. Wonderful stuff. A word class cider.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle, bought @ Vinspecialisten, Kolding Storcenter.
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.

Unclematties girlfriend shared this with us. Yellow pour. Smells of delcicious apples, tart and sweet. Flavor is purely delicious. Concentrated sweet/tart apples. Crisp and wonderfully carbonated like champagne. NICE!!

Draft at Green Lady. REally phenominal normandie cidre, some dustiness, tannic skins, some decent acidity, oxidized but crisp and tart.

(11/17/08) Bottle at Birreria Paradiso in Washington DC. 5.0%. Hazy golden color with a big white head that falls immediately. Aroma of sour green apples and some barnyard. Sourish flavor, a bit funky, of green apples and a bit of sweet tones. Mouthfeel might be the most carbonated I’ve ever had. Very tasty stuff.

2002 vintage bottle. Looks like cider, smells like wood. Thin, watery flavor. Pillow-soft carbonation. Watery finish. Not great, not bad. Overpriced at $15 or so.
