3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
750 ml. bottle sampled @ “Kaapse Brouwers 1st Anniversary Beer Festival”. Dark orange, thin bubbles on top. Nose is very rustic, raw barn, hay, almost too raw, apple, light pear. Taste is rustic, wild, fermenting apples & apple juice, mineral, sulfites, very raw with odd notes, close to being too much. Med. body. Interesting brew.

750ml bottle (Sarkozy, Vilnius)
Gentle appleiness to the aroma, but the carbonation is spitting in my face. Nice hazy apricot colour. Taste starts with an intangible rose pepper without the peppery heat. Finish has that too. Palate surprisingly full for the carbonation level. Cloudy equals good. Some toffee too. Lots of character in this.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Near-gushing to huge, but ultra-shortlived dirty yellow head over absurdly lively orange-golden hazed cider. Dry apples, with some dry herb (such as sage), hay. Quite intense, but unidimensional nose; Dry apples, but with a nice toasted flavour, as if the apples were stewed, the juice caramelized first. Long-lasting sweet apple finish. Gets earthiness after some warming. Very carbonated to fizzy, slowly dwindling. Something syrupy, ast the caramelized sugars in Tarte Tatin. Not your ordinary cider. But I think de la Galotières products more than a tad too fizzy.

Bottled (from Alko, Vaasa). Golden colour, mediumsized white head. Aroma is farmyard, bluecheese and some slight apples. Flavour is much the same, from quite sweet. Pleasant and nice.
