walrussell (178) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - AUG 18, 2015
Intense amber Smells like old towel, fresh apple, and oxidized apple. Medium acid, full body, just off dry, high bitterness, medium-low astringency. Tastes like fresh and oxidized apple, and orange. The funky bitterness reminds me of naturally pickled vegetables (without the salt of course). Sophisticated and complex, with an amazingly well integrated high abv for a cider.

DYCSoccer17 (3499) - Woodland, California, USA - JUL 24, 2015
2013 bottle purchased at The Davis Beer Shoppe. The aroma on this smells like urine...literally urine. Like stale piss. There is just a waft of apple tartness, but this is just really urine-like. Transparent yellow body with a small, rapidly dissipating white head. Starts with a very harsh, bitter, astringent flavor. Light apple flavors, but this is just all sorts of bitter and dry. This is really hard to drink, and one of the worst beverages that I’ve had.

OldMrCrow (2177) - Seattle, Washington, USA - JUN 20, 2015
375 ml bottle. 2013 bottling.

Maize pour with some sediment. Intense funk atop green apple. Very dry at the first sip, but not at all acidic. Zero hint of the alcohol -- dangerous! Absolutely delicious. As one progresses, one finds hints of sweetness in the very long finish. Glorious complexity. I think this is the best of the Dupont ciders I’ve had to date, including the Reserve.

DocLock (8593) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 31, 2015
Bottle fro, WHole foods. Pours hazy, bright gold with minimal white head and a lot of carbonation. Nose is tart apple, yeasty funk. Tastes yeasty, funky tart, with apple and some honey notes. Complex and delicious.

zvikar (4070) - Ramat Gan, ISRAEL - MAY 9, 2015

FatPhil (10992) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - MAY 1, 2015
750ml bottle (Sarkozy, Vilnius)
Apple thin, a dry aroma. Pale apple juice colour. Dry and drying champagne palate. This was made with champagne yeast or what? Dry, and harsh. No body. No evidence of any apples being harmed in the production of this cidre. I like this as much as I like grappa.

DSG (8610) - Tel Aviv, - JAN 23, 2015
Bottle sample at the last tasting at Beer Market Jaffa. Thanks zvikar. Clear pale golden. Pleasant green apples aroma. Flavor of bitter green apples, very dry, with a sourish note. Well-carbonated. Not too alcoholic for 11%. Nice.

AirForceHops (4692) - Epping, New Hampshire, USA - DEC 1, 2014
Purchased a bottle at Warehouse Liquors Chicago. The pour was different in two separate glasses because of the yeast. Common sense (light clear pour for first 5 oz. much more hazy afterwords) Drank this real warm, aroma is ... Flavor is old Appel juice with a astringent aftertaste. Lingering bitter juice hints. Champagne dryness in the finish, very dry.

AdamChandler (3743) - Enfield, New Hampshire, USA - NOV 29, 2014
Clear and golden with champagne like I bubbles. Really sharp acidic character with a lot of old apple and sweet with cherry. Taste is nice. It’s yeasty with a sprite or 7Up taste. Most of the fruit taste is old but it has an old world taste. I also get some ginger
