maltdog (617) - Colorado, USA - JUL 23, 2009
The 2006 bottle uncorks with a fireworks bang, and cider gushes all over my hand and the table. Once relocated into a glass, it is cloudy necatrine with a slight milky opacity. After the initial rush of bubbles exhausts itself, steady carbonation forms a few foam island on the surface. The aroma is at first earthy and sour, followed by a lungful of horsey brett funk... after a minute or two, scents of dust and old cheese also become prominent. A happily, surprisngly apple-y flavor- stewed Granny Smiths with a nod toward Fijis- and accents of salt, cinnamon, and smoky creosote. The palate is quite oily and crackles with poprock fizz. The coda consists of a puckeringly tart finish and oily-bretty tonguecoating aftertaste. Although many of the individual components are... unexpected,... the cider as a whole is (accidentally I’m sure) quite interesting, complex and refreshing.

Maria (10164) - Thisted, DENMARK - APR 22, 2009
It is a vintage 2006 and now it’s Easter 2009. It is warm golden with a rapidly vanishing head. The aroma has notes of ripe and baked apples. The flavour has a light sweetness and a light sourness and notes of ripe and baked apples. It has a very full body, it is very uncomplicated and charming, I could drink a lot of this one!

elihapa (1525) - Honolulu, Hawaii, USA - MAR 28, 2009
2007 bottle, served cellar temperature. Pours gold-orange with a smallish head. Aroma very much akin to an unblended lambic: full of tart, sour notes, along with green apple. Flavor, however, is a reserved blend of sweet apples and mild alcohol. Body is medium, with light carbonation. Overall decent, though I found the flavor to be underwhelming given the dynamism of the aroma.

Cletus (6354) - Connecticut, USA - MAR 23, 2009
Pours yellow and fizzy. Smells of dry apples and spicy. Tastes dry, but on the watery side as compared to their other ciders.

That1Guy (1934) - Greeley, Colorado, USA - JAN 20, 2009
Crushed with Jakebra. HUGE head that dissipated in about du and haif seconds. Awesome, kinda gueuzey, farmhouse, funky, sour, badass aroma. Flavor isn’t quite there, but the carbonation give it a very nice mouthfeel. Finish is a little too bready/yeasty, but this is still excellent.

Ibrew2or3 (6910) - Tempe, Arizona, USA - JAN 2, 2009
Bottles courtesy of kiefdog. This 2005 vintage has an aroma that is full of wood notes followed by funky notes and some tartness. The taste is much the same with apples mixing with funk like tartness that carries nicely into the finish. Yummy interesting beverage that holds a bit of complexity and ending dry and refreshing. Loved it.

markwise (4467) - North of Tampa, Florida, USA - DEC 22, 2008
Thanks kiefdog for the share. Pours straw gold with an aroma of apple, pear, apple, some dust and funk with some sugar and banana. Flavor is same with the entire apple spectrum represented. Presence of honey, banana, sugar, and funk, too. An interesting cider. Very light and sweet with a finish that is syrupy sugary apple puree.

sebletitje (6700) - Enghien, BELGIUM - DEC 21, 2008
courtesy of keifdog. Pours clear golden, white head. Aroma and taste. Very crisp and dry cider. Ample notes of fruits - apples. Overall very sweet and sugary with undertones of yeast. Easy to drink, very refreshing.

kiefdog (1826) - Tampa, Florida, USA - DEC 19, 2008
75cl bottle from Swann Avenue Market (Tampa, FL). Pours a slightly cloudy bright yellow color with a one finger white head that settles quickly. Aroma is sweet with notes of pear, ripe fruit, barnyard funk, banana, apple. Flavor is sweet with notes of candy sugar, pears, syrup, tart apples, and maybe even apple cider. Generally light to medium body with a smooth sweet finish. Nice cider.

illidurit (2146) - Petaluma, California, USA - DEC 17, 2008
Poured into a La Chouffe goblet. Total gusher upon opening, I guess I could have let it get colder though. Huge white head fizzes out pretty quickly. Slightly hazed golden color. Aroma is very champagne-like, but with a nice dose of crisp apple flesh. Flavor is light tart green apple with some yeast and champagne notes. Light, maybe a little too yeasty. Very high effervescence hurts the drinkability a bit.
