750ml Bottle says 2011
Pours a deep gold color, almost still, with a light haziness.

The aroma is apple flesh, a touch of calvados, mild basement and funky notes.... some really nice floral aromas are in there as well.

The flavor is very dry and floral, nicely tart & earthy with a great minerallity. Itís got some apple flavor, itís more of a fleshy apple flavor than a apple-skin flavor and has some hints of calvados, but it does not come across as overly boozy or anywhere near 10% abv.

Reading through ratings there must be bottle/batch variation at play here,
I went into this expecting to genuinely not enjoy this very much, or at least enjoy it as a novelty at best, but the bottle I got was absolutely fantastic cider.

Solid amberish gold pour with thickness, sediment, and active carbonation. There is wood, funk, grass, leather, and smoke all in the nose. A slight bit of pukey bile which is forgiveable given the complexity here. Extremely dry on the palate with notes of brandy booze, tire fire, apple pits, and a big brett hit evoking sour citrus and dusty basement. The 11% is definitely felt and this drink will not disappoint the drinker seeking out amped-up versions of the expected Dupont cidre flavors. A 375 is probably best split amongst 2, and a 750 for 4. Really flavorful but will probably be hard to repeat more than once a year.

75cl bottle from madeincalvados.com. Color is dark gold with thin to medium head. Carbonation is soft. Taste is light sour and light sweet and light to medium bitter. Nice dryness in here. Aroma is apple and brett.

Bottle. Pours a deep crystal clear golden body with a moderate amount of bubbles. For an unpasteurized and unfiltered cider, this is pretty damn clear! Nose is intense apple juice, sawdust, green leaves and hints of oak and alcohol. Taste is dry wooden notes, bitter apple juice, lemon-ish acidic touches and hints of apple peel. Medium body, soft to moderate carbonation. Dry finish, but (with the exception of slowly increasing inner warmth) otherwise more or less completely devoid of evidence pointing towards the 11 % ABV. Iím impressed by that alone. Otherwise, this is a dry and quite nice cider which will could substitute for a dry white wine any day.

Small bottle from Bushwacker. Pours a clear dark copper color with a small white head. A rich sweet fruity nose with sweet apples, wood and huge apple pie. The flavor is almost entirely dry, tart, green apples, sawdust, quite fizzy, earthy dusty tart finish. Good.

oh6gdx (20004) - Vasa, FINLAND - JUN 5, 2013
Bottled. Slightly hazy yellow colour, minor head, which disappears very fast. Aroma is sulphur, some wood, mild sweet apples with some slight acidic and cheesy notes as well. Flavour is apples, some vinegar, mild sulphur as well as some alcohol sweetness as well. Feels a bit thin even though being high in alcohol.

KyotoLefty (5895) - Kyoto, JAPAN - APR 14, 2013
Champagne bottle, 2011. Rich, ripe apple nose, some caramel, baked apple, peel, some light grass. Deep amber, clear, almost still. Dry and rather bitter flavor, dusty, grassy, not much apple taste at all. Quite bitter and alcoholic. Interesting. Not immediately likeable, but I think it is growing on me. Very clean and refreshing.

0.375l corked bottle #4012. An 11% cider? Now Iíve seen that to. Anyhow, this is a crystal clear one. Golden in color with a quickly fading fizzing little near transparent white cider top. It smells of earthy apples, cellar, some woody tones, roses, some caramel sweetness and traces of dry rocks. Not extreme, but quite elegant and nice. Itís lively fizzing on the carbonation level this, and really dry. No sweetness what so ever in this and yeah, the 11% has turned this in to something a bit more than your average cider. Indeed, but the alcohol is yet somewhat camouflaged in a strange way. Old dusty apples and cellar. Itís really mouthdrying and astringent this. Apple zest and itís almost like chewing on fruity apple cores. Grows on you. Enjoyable, but a small bottle should be enough. At least enough for me. 23.01.2013
