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.

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.

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)

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle at home. Pours clear, bubbly gold with a soft, white head. Rich, semi-ripe apple nose with some caramel and mild funk. Light to medium sweet, dry with fresh apples, light sweat, dank must. Light to medium in body and well carbonated. Crisp, faintly dry finish, not too sweet with more fresh, sweaty apples. Very good cider.
