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.

Maria (10205) - Thisted, DENMARK - JUN 9, 2008
Vintage 2006. Warm golden with a quickly disappearing head. The aroma has a light sweetness, notes of ripe apples, light barnyard and damp basement. The flavour has a light sweetness, notes of slightly sweet apples with a natural sourness, fermented apple, light, damp cellar and wood. Not bad at all!

deyholla (9762) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - MAR 17, 2013
Sampled at the 2013 Chicago Cider Summit. Pours a clear pale gold with a bubbly white head that starts at the edges and dissipates completely, visible carbonation. Aroma has musty apple with a combination of sweet and tart notes. Flavor is quite musty with more tart apples and a bit of funkiness in the finish.

DrSilverworm (9672) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - JUN 29, 2014
On tap at Dutch’s. Pours with a bigger head, that soon fades to minimal. My pour is one of the first from the keg. Half hazy golden color, with chunky stringy particles visible in the body -- not sure if that’s pieces of apple or yeast, but it doesn’t bother me either way. Light to medium body. Super smooth and crisp lighter carbonation. Very lightly slick finish, minimal stickiness. Intensely drinkable and refreshing, even on the full stomach I have right now. Fantastic golden apple aroma, pretty clean. Moderate sweet taste. Awesome surprisingly poundable refreshing easy-drinking cidre.

kermis (9632) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - OCT 5, 2013
Draft sampled at Pizzeria Paradiso Dupont. Pours clear golden with no head. Aroma of apples, toffee, some barnyard and vegetables. Flavour is moderate sweet and light bitter. Medium bodied with soft carbonation.

750mL. Andy and I obviously have similar tastes. It poured a cloudy light yellow with a fizzy white head that disappears quickly. Aroma right out front I thought: geuze! And then the lemony tartness, horsey notes started to give way to apple skins, leather, sour green apples. Taste is sour green apples skins, red delicious apples. Pretty yummy and one of the better ciders that I’ve tried.
