KyotoLefty (8859) - Kyoto, - NOV 16, 2012
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.

gEUS (1678) - Linden, BELGIUM - MAY 3, 2016
750 ml bottle, tasted side by side with the Cidre Biologique version. Cidre Biologique pours a tad lighter than the Bouché. The aroma is a true barnyard funk, and loads of bretts. This is getting really close to traditional geuze. This cider reveals what natural and spontaneous fermentation does to apples, and it’s just marvelous: vivid apple sours in the aroma, funk funk funk, and champagne alike notes of pinot meunier. The Bouché version is more tannin based and gives a rougher edge to cider due to the use of other varieties. Less of a funky result, but nonetheless full of character as well. pours a bit darker yellow, both very finely carbonated. Cidre Biologique 4.6, Cidre Bouchée 4.2. P.S.: if RB puts ciders on its website, the step to wine is just very small (fruit sugars fermenting to alcoholic beverage). The gap between beers and ciders is bigger than that of ciders to wines... Just sayin’.

tom10101 (4918) - Quebec, CANADA - MAR 27, 2016
Bottle (750 ml). Clear bright golden with a fizzy white head, no retention, leaving not much lacing. Flavors of bright apples, medium farmhouse presence for a cidre fermier, hay, grass and leather. Taste isn’t much sweet apart from some apple fruity sweetness along mild acidity. Medium body. Soft carbonation with lots of small bubbles. Juicy apples mouthfeel. Herbal and hay finish. Much softer than Dupont Bouché Brut Bio de Normandie and less farmy but it’s nicely balanced, super juicy and quenching. Tasty stuff.

mathieuc (3038) - Québec, Quebec, CANADA - MAR 24, 2016
Pours a clear golden with some bubble streams but soon enough it ends up looking completely still. Nose is of leather and light funky barnyard, farmhouse and natural indeed. Taste is dry and lightly tart with lightly juicy apples and leather. Light manure. Body is light to medium and carbonation medium-high and almost festive (champagne). A nice one, just enough funk and not too poopy.

SlovakSniper (4716) - Candiac, Quebec, CANADA - MAR 15, 2016
Vintage 2014. 75 cl. 5.5%. Un cidre doré avec un anneau de mousse. Le nez s’ouvre sur des pommes et des notes fermières. Il exhibe aussi des arômes de fromage bleu et de poussière. Le goût de cuir qui traverse les pommes rend l’expérience bien intéressante. Il y a une touche de cannelle qui se signale en fin de gorgée. Le corps est bien vivant avec ses bulles tissées serrées. Rafraîchissant cidre, facile à boire, délicieux. Une belle découverte.

Bottle shared. Clear gold pour with thin bubbly white head. Aroma is nice and funky, wet hay, light grass, nice apple. Taste is fruity, nice juicy apple, light funk, light cheesy notes. Palate is light bodied with good carbonation, dry. Very nice.

slowrunner77 (9234) - Reno, Nevada, USA - FEB 11, 2016
Earthy and lightly sweet apple - very light throughout. Dry finish. Another one that was pleasant, but not worth the premium price.
