2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Slightly hazy body with a rather pale yellow colour. Quite sweet aroma with the usual notes of fermented apples, but also some crisp fruity notes, almost citric, that give the aroma an acidic feel. Light sweet, light acidic and light sour taste. Quite light body with a moderate dry finish. I wonder what the dry version will taste like if this is supposed to be demi sec... A decent cider with close to exciting citric notes, even though both the aroma and flavours could have been stronger.
[37.5 cl bottle, 4.7% ABV, from Vinmonopolet Ullevål, Oslo]

Medium white head quickly disappears entirely. Hazy yellow body with light carbonation. Wooden vinous apple aroma with mealy barnyard notes. Sweet-dryish winter apple taste with mealy sugary notes. Mid-bodied. Mild, but astringent mouthfeel. Dryish wooden winter apple aftertaste. Quite nice, and fairly drinkable. (0.375l bottle, wine monopoly, Vika, Oslo.)
