75 cl Bottle. Deep gold, effervescent, almost a bit cloudy. Crisp apple nose, light dust, rather dry and light acid, green apples, some tannins. Nice. Ripe apple sweetness is balanced with light acidy, some citrus, some tannins, some light funk. Dry, to sweet and fruity mid, to dry finish. Effervescent like champagne. Excellent stuff.

Champagne bottle at YNWA Beershop. Low fluffy white quickly disappearing head. Clear dark yellow golden body. Dry and dusty apple aroma. Flavor of red sweet apples with a hint of leather. High carbonation. Long dry finish. Careful when you open the bottle. You’ll get a long range shot of the cork.

Bottle. The cap goes off like a glock: BOOM! No gusher though, so the drama was quick. :-) Slightly hazy light orange body, tiny white head. Lively carbonation in the body, regardless (most ciders don’t seem to generate head retention to any considerable degree...). Aroma is apple cores, wood, hints of blue cheese and dew. A bit strange, but good. Taste is mature apples, yellow apple peel, wood and yeast tones. Aftertaste reminds me of walnuts. A bit peculiar perhaps, but quite nice. The palate kinda ruins the ball, though: parching and watery at the same time, which I really don’t like. Suspecting an old bottle here (2007, with a 3 year best-before-date so that could be correct...). Still pretty OK.

OleR (4804) - Oslo, NORWAY - FEB 5, 2012
0,75L corked (2007 Vintage) champagne bottle. Sounds like a gunshop when opening. Tall fluffy fully diminshing white head. Noisy and vigorous carbonation. Body is clear straw to yellow. Nice smell of apple jam, or ripe red apples with a little sulphur touch. Delicious mouthfeel; Vivid and sparkling, yet soft on the palate. Gently sweet apple flavor. Rounded and genuine, with a refreshing acidity. Properly light-bodied. Soft sparkling ending. Very good, indeed.

hawthorne00 (2657) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - JAN 26, 2012
Bottle, as Normandy Cider. Hazy gold with a white mousse that doesn’t quite disappear because of very high carbonation. Aroma of tart apples, stewed apples, leather. Softer and sweeter in mouth than suggested by the aroma - more stewed apples, light tartness, still sweet finish with only hints of acid. Good stuff.

Sigmund (5461) - Tau, NORWAY - JUL 16, 2010
750 ml dark green "champagne" bottle, as "Famille E. Dupont Cidre Bouché Effervescent Naturel", vintage 2007. From Vinmonopolet, bestillingsutvalget. ABV is 5%. Bottle conditioned. 80% of the blend comes from the bitter-sweet apple varieties Mettais, Binet Rouge and Frequin, with 20% Judaines and Petit Jaune for acidity. Gushes out of the bottle when the cork is popped, pours very fizzy, moderate carbonation in the glass. Golden colour, white head disappears instantly. Nice aroma of cider apples and sweet eating apples, with a hint of oak. Flavour of moderately oxidised cider apples, medium sweet. Slightly tart finish with hints of oak and sulphites. Easy drinking.
