2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Poured a clear Lucozade amber with lots of carbonation. The aroma is fruity and the apple dominates. The flavour is sweet initially, with a touch of apple sourness on the palate. Drinkable in small quantities, but would soon become sickly. The 25cl 2% (non-cuvee speciale) bottle that I had was perfect!

3.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
UPDATED: MAR 27, 2013 Almost clear, yellow body, light fizz. Odd yeast aroma, bit sharp and no apples. Light rustic, but without an awful lot of taste richness. Not too sweet, luckily, so it?s still a nice drink. Not very special and the aroma is a bit off putting. (75cl bottle from Auchan in Tours)

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
750mL found at total wine in Jacksonville, Florida. The dry version of this was the first cider I ever had in France. Pours sparkling clear deeper orange for cider. Soapy white head dissipates. Nose is sweet apple juice box. Taste is on the sweeter side, especially for French cider. Mouthfeel is juicy, lactic, some sulfur, hefty dose of apple pith with tannic apple skin dryness in the finish. Nice but could possibly be served to children on a special occasion with little problem.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
(750ml bottle thanks to bu11zeye) hazy bright gold, soapy eggshell white bubbles, nose of straight up apple juice, light pear, sweet and smells really rich. Taste of apple juice/cider combination, lightly salty in a way that enhances the sweetness, no off flavors, really good cider. Prickly carbonation, great apple juice linger.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Thanks to bu11zeye for sharing this cider. Pours a yellow color. I get a lot of strong apple and pear notes, with a light bit of funk. The carbonation is very nice and makes the cider very drinkable. Very nice overall.
