Vintage 2013, 6.5% ABV, bottle n. 2539

Light dull amber color. The apple aroma is quite nice, with a touch of hazelnuts. Light apple flavor, but also too dry to really appreciate, moderately sour; the final is short and weak.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
2013 vintage. 750mL bottle, pours a clear golden with a few bubbles of head. Aroma brings out notes of champagne yeast and bone dry apples. Flavour is very complex, with bone dry apples with only a hint of residual sweetness, lots of champagne yeast, and almost a touch of rustic funk quality. Superbly balanced and highly drinkable. Excellent.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle (750 ml) bought @ La Face Cachée de la Pomme. Split with the Québec crew.
Appearance: Clear pale yellow with pinkinsh hues and a small bubbly and quickly disappearing ring of white foam.
Aroma: Quite floral with mild geneva apples and a light sweetness impression.
Taste: Not much sweetness, mild tartness, geneva apples, floral notes and CO².
Palate: Light to medium body. Medium carbonation. Dry finish.
Overall: It’s easy drinking and quenching. I was expecting a bit more tartness from the geneva apples which I think would have made this one quite a bit more refreshing and enjoyable but it’s a good rosé nonetheless.

UPDATED: JUN 9, 2015 Pours a slightly pink yellow with some nice bubbles. Nose is of straight pommettes juice. Taste is lightly tart and basically just some fresh crabapples juice. Body is light to medium and carbonation medium to high. Overall a fair sparkling cider, I could see myself sharing that with people over the course of summer!

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle at Mondial 2015 in Montreal with Linh, Ken and Nica. Pours a bright ruby red / pink body. Mouthfeel is tart and dry with notes of dry apple skins, wine and bitters. A nice break to sample this during a sea of ice ciders, but still super dry. Although, of the dry sparkling ciders we tried at the festival, this was one of the better ones.
