Aroma sweet and appley after pouring a rich golden color. Very sparkly, with lots of effervescent bubbles and a clean white head. Taste is a whole different story. Although the apple flavor is there, a little dry, but there, it then blossoms into a melting plastic type taste that is not pleasant at all. Maybe a bad bottle?

A pleasant surprise. Pale yellow with brief, fizzy, champagne head. Aroma was of sweet apples. Nice carbonation and a refreshing apple taste. Quite good.

2004 Bottle @ the weekly RB Poker Gathering
Golden plate color, no retentiveness in the head, but very fizzy and carbonated (like champagne). The nose is funky with some bretty and dry dusty hay mixed with apples. The flavor is a touch sweeter with a bit more crisp tart apple taste. The fail is funky and barny. Nice.

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.

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.

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!

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.

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.
