Well this was one helluva cider. Tar served this blind out of a brown paper bag. At first I thought it was the best faro I had ever tasted. Others tried to figure out what type of lambic/sour they were drinking that had such a wonderful funky/sweet/fruit flavor and aroma. I too was blown away by the delicate nature of this beverage. The apples and yeasty qualities are tremendous. Wow what a cider!

UPDATED: AUG 5, 2012 2010 bottle shared by Tar at Wood Shop. Golden orange with a very nice, very funky nose with ripe apples and dust. Bretty, yeasty with funk and dust on top of sweet tasting apples, like a granny smith. Best cider I’ve had to date. Wonderful.

750mL bottle, 2010 vintage. Poured cloudy medium golden with a quickly-fizzling white head. The aroma picked up tangy Calvados and oak, with a little age evident.. dank, earthy undertones. The flavor found tangy apple skins and prickly carbonation throughout.. meatier apple and oak on the middle.. grainy, tart finish. Medium-bodied and very fizzy on the palate.. OK feel and flow.. solid, but not spectacular.

2010 bottle (Local Bottlestore). Gold - clear first glass, bottom of the bottle is getting towards opaque. Large mousse dissipates quickly leaving small islands of bubbles. Aroma is woody - like a freshly sawn apple tree - and earthy with sweet apples underneath, some tropical fruit too. Taste is slightly sweet at first with some honey as well as fruit, then tart apples and wood. Only dryish at the end. Lightish body with lots of carbonation that spoils the show for a while. But once it settles down, this is very good.

Refrigerated corked and capped 5.5% abv 2010 green bottle poured into a white wine glass. Pours hazy golden with no head. Warning gusher! No lacing, medium body, extreme carbonation (after removing the cap the cork started to slide out), and funky yeast aroma. Taste is complex slightly tart apple, some funky yeast, hint of chemical, and some oak. Great cider.

Bottle - 750mL corked and caged. Vintage 2010. Label shows Cidre Bouché Brut de Normandie Etienne Dupont Bio and 4.5% ABV. Apple juice in color with a strong, effervescent white head. It’s faded in no time. Aroma is NOT apple juice. In fact, it’s fermented apple, funky yeast notes, sour fruit and earthy notes. Some damp woody notes as well. I could also swear I smell bleu cheese. Taste is sweet apples, more funky yeast, earthy notes, light wood and hints of funky cheese. Body is light with a strong, fizzy carbonation. Soft stickiness as well. Ends with more funky yeast, apple, hints of tart fruit, wet wood, damp earth and faint cheese notes. I really like this!

750 c&c (2009) from The Davis Beer Shoppe. Purs gold with a foamy/fizzy/transient white head. Aroma of mixed, slightly cooked (or very ripe) apple skins. Near medium body. Lightly sweet, astringent, finishing with a touch of ripe mushy apple. Not quite so tasty as the non-organic.

Aroma is funk right up front, similar to a gueuze. Barnyard and cheese. Flavor is much more mellow, mostly just a nice sparkling apple cider that dries out slightly in the back. Carbonation is lively, slightly easing the sweetness of the fruit. I want more than just apple, but can’t really find it. Every time I go back for a sip I get that funky wild yeast aroma, expect to find it in the flavor, and find myself a little disappointed it’s not there. Definitely better and more interesting than any Western ciders I’ve ever had, but because of that, I’m wishing it went even further and was straight sour. Certainly a nice quaffer for a hot day, and close to being more.

Muddy tan. Blasted out of the bottle. Looks a little rough, really. The aroma is quite farmy, with pedio, leather and apple skins. Starts sweetish, with some nice sugars, then finishes with more tartness. There remains sweetness underlying, however. The apple taste is fresh, with a little bit of acidic bite and a skin-like note. Very drinkable, and refreshing. Pretty good example of French cider.
