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.

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 (4048) - 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.

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

madvike (3044) - Middleton, Wisconsin, USA - JUN 26, 2014
Bottle - Pours clear amber with no head. Nose is plasticy, dry bitter apple with a bit of boozy warmth. A touch of oakiness too. Taste has the same plastic notes with real bitter pungent apples, dry and tannic, with a little oakiness. Warm, but not boozy at all, surprising for 11%. Medium thin with minimal carbonation. Very good stuff.

Bottle, shared with my wife on our 18th anniversary (for which the classic gift is porcelain, in case any of you were wondering). This bottle is the 2011 vintage. It pours a deep and vibrant golden, crystal clear, with medium carbo, and no yeast sediment at all (surprising, given that is supposedly unfiltered). Aroma features musty apples with dry woody undertones and a petroleum note. The palate is really quite restrained in the apple department, with funk and dry wood and latex all in greater prominence. It’s like someone took the base cider, strained it through a barn blanket, and then let it sit on a cobwebby old sun-bleached deck before scooping it up with a latex ladle and pouring it into the bottle. Really really dry. Both of us enjoyed it, but I would have liked the apple character to pop a little more.
