Bottle at Quo Vadis. It pours cloudy deep orange with a thick white head. The nose is earthy, musty, apple skin, lemon peel, apple pie and a touch of farmyard. The taste is crisp, soft sweetness, mellow apple, light earth, touch of tannins, wood, apple pie and poached pear with a dry finish. Medium body and moderate, effervescent carbonation. Very well balanced and very drinkable stuff.

2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Bottle poured into tumbler. Very cloudy brassy colour, no head. Musty, funky aromas, quite strong. Unripe apples. Very tart taste, dry finish. Not really to my taste, but apparently this is desirable in a Breton cider? Kinda like the way I don’t get lambics... yet.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
330ml bottle at Crêperie du Monde, London. Lovely fresh aroma, bright apple flavour, not as sweet as some Brittany cidres, a sharpness to the taste. Very drinkable, a large bottle of this would be a welcome addition to the fridge on a hot summer day.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Supple mousy, huffy, hessian sack and old leather couch smell to it with a little doughy, dry green apple and pear drops coming through. Draws a hazy caramel gold in colour with minute particulate carbonation sparse in its divide. Dry, mousy and hairy palate. Quite woody and just a bit cheesy to make it interesting. There is a huff of smoke that lingers, the swallow drains the palate of saliva, oh so dry. The body is light but it yields good presence, the apple flavours are strangely of those you’d pass up if it was fruit yet seem to work so well on this one post fermentation. Tightly sour but in check, and gently bitter, rough but also in tune. This is a nice session cider. Seems to hide itself so you could slam them back all night. The body is light enough, the carbonation is gentle, barely a prickle.
A nice, definitively dry cider with character! (33cL, no date stamp [though purchased June 2010], Dan Murphy’s Morley)
