3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
500 ml clear bottle, from Vinmonopolet. ABV is 7%. Clear deep golden to amber colour. No sediment in the bottle. Pours with a slight carbonation and a low and short-lived white head. Lovely aroma of cider apples, hints of sulphites and oak. Only the slightest carbonation in the mouth. Medium sweet flavour, notes of cider apples and sweet eating apples, apparently this is from one single apple variety. Oaky finish with a hint of smoke, a bit too much sulphites.

Bottle @ Angleterre. Pours a slightly reddish, light amber with no head. Aroma is medium apple, not sweet, not dry or sour. Taste begins quite sweet, but not too sugary, strawberry, sweet apple, turns sour apple on the finish. Palate is alright.

Vinegar stong apple smell. Not liking the smell. Dark orange colour opaque. Full oily body. Sour sweet with a light honey finish. Astringent aftertaste. The sour taste is a little offputting.
