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)

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!

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
750 mL bottle. Pours a golden light orange with a bubbly white head. The aroma is tart apples, acidic fruit, and hints of wood and mild sourness. The flavor is tart up front, then a mild fruity sweetness sets in. The acidity keeps the sweetness in check to keep it from being too alcopop. The finish is tingly, and some hints of toasted wood peek through. A few floral notes develop after several sips and increased temperature. The mouthfell is flighty, but overall it is delicate and refreshing. Not unique or outstanding in any way, but I still like it.

Sorry, but I happened to like this one. The pale yellow body was animated by sparkling bubbles that burst into a small, fizzy head. The nose was unmistakably apples with a slight hint of yeast. Light, lively, tingly, and refreshing feel in the mouth. Crisp and fresh apple flavor, moderately sweet. Low ABV vakes it very drinkable on a hot day on the patio.

Quasi meglio quello dolce, almeno non aveva quella nota di saponcino sgradevole; però che zuccherosità boh chi lo sa se è buono o no. Coi sidri e coi sake faccio dei gran più uno.

Very classy, thick flavor but not viscous. The apple essence spreads all over your mouth. Only problem is that it dries the hell out of your mouth. I had no idea it was so rare. Bottle from Total Wine Ft. Lauderdale.

3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Tasted from 750mL bottle. Pours a slightly cloudy yellow with a white lace head. Nose of apple juice and some light earthiness. Flavor is sweet apple up front with some tartness and earth on the back of the palate. Body is super light with light carbonation and a drying but short finish.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Found at a Casino supermarket on the outskirts of Île-de-France. always some French cider poking its nose out from somewhere, it will be impossible to try all of them... but anyways, pours well with a slightly cloudy gold-yellow colour and just a modest amount of head that dissipates in about a minute. Aroma is sweet apples, slight pear hints. Taste is a subdued sweet apple. Dry finish. Pretty good for a 2% cider.

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Translucent gold with a thin beige head. Medium body with medium carbonation.
Aroma: sweet musty apples.
Taste: musty tart pie apples, with a hint of wildness, but more like juice than cider.
