DavidP (1747) - Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA - MAR 19, 2005
2003 bottle. Very fizzy stuff, pours with a big bubbly white head that quick dissapears. Hazy orange body. Fantastic aroma - concentrated green apple sweetness tempered by a dry corn silage acidic bite. The flavor has a good underlying apple flesh sweetness and apple skin tartness but also has a distracting tin foil bite. It’s not overpowering it just keeps you from really settling in with the drink. Good mouthfeel.

mcbackus (758) - Merritt Island, Florida, USA - MAY 22, 2008
bottle pours a hazzy golden apple juice colour with a lasting bubbly white head. aroma is a musty apple pulp aroma, some bright tart areas and some sweeter fresh pressed apple juice underneath, honey and some perfumy notes. the flavour is very tart and fades in to a lazy apple flavour that is not to powerful, some yeast and some sweetness finds its way in somewhere. finishes quick and dry with some must character. not overly impressed but very drinkable.

Maria (10136) - 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!

nimbleprop (4815) - SouthWest, Washington, Washington DC, USA - MAY 23, 2010
750ml bottle pours a lightly hazy, bright yellow with one ring of white head. Aroma is fruity, a little cheesy, a little horsey. Almost has a guezey kind of nose. Flavor is sweet, fruity, lots of apples and apple juice. Finish is sweet and a little wet. I’d like this a touch drier.

Decent pour with a bitter smell. Pours a cloudy yellow, with a nasty looking scum within the bottle I lost my drinking partner on this one. All the better for me. as it was a granny smith taste with a metallic taste to finish it up. @003 vintage. By the way my friend said he should of tried this one but couldn’t get past the scum in the bottle.

LilKem (1213) - Marietta, Ohio, USA - AUG 1, 2005
this was like drinking apple pie filling, with baking apples, cinnamon, ginger, and some nutmeg. some light birch flavors. pretty carbonated and light buttery crumbs. flavors became more apparent as it warmed. claoudy maize color that was headless like a horseman. thanks b for bringin this over.

Pours a cloudy, almost milky amber. Very thick, & semi-sweet. Has no head & no distinguishable carbonation.<!-- br --><!-- br --> The taste is oaky, apple-y & a bit yeast-y.

nick76 (4213) - Tampa, Florida, USA - APR 17, 2007
2005 vintage. The aroma has apples, alcohol, yeast, and a touch of plastic and cork. This one is very crisp and sweet. The flavor is mostly sweet and tart apples without much in the way of addition things (which I was expecting from the aroma). The palate is just right for a cider. I really like this one.

2007 corked 375 into snifter, served at cellar temp %0F. My first REAL cider... here we go. I have feared this for a long time and never seen it happen -- upon opening the cage slowly, the bottle’s pressure forced the cork out once the cage’s counter pressure was released upon me untwisting it! Thankfully, I untwisted the cage slowly due to my fear of this reaction! Thankfully, again, I didn’t loose any liquid. Once the cork popped, tons of bubbles started racing from the bottom of the bottle to the top -- big fat bubbles. Big fizzy very rapidly fading head exactly like that resulting from a hard pour of a sprite. Pale gold body with more raising carbonation than a Macro pale lager!! So much so that it is actually building the head back up. Very earthy aroma with hints of sour apple, a gueuze-is tartness/crispness, oak, and a humid mustyness -- all very subtle on the whole. The flavor is pretty unique and also very subtle in character. Sweet apples upfront that fades into a crist slightly tart dryness that finishes juicy with a flavor that I can only liken the the aroma of Band-Aids, if that makes any sense. Very light body with more carbonation than I have ever encountered (again, like in a sprite). Overall: not quite my thing, but interesting at the very least. Not worth the price IMO, but worth a try at least once. Inoffensive. The Band-Aid flavor has vanished after the first few sips. It just seems like a very subdued beverage. Refreshing in the summer. No trace of alcohol. Almost tastes like it is good for me - like carbonated organic apple juice.
