goodbyeohio (36) - Portland, Oregon, USA - JAN 17, 2014
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.

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 Iíve had to date, including the Reserve.

FatPhil (10724) - 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 (8366) - 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 (4419) - 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 (3527) - 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. Itís 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
