Skyview is the man for sharing this. Pours a nice light golden. Killer concentrated applesauce like spicy sweet apple nose. Nice tart and sweet nose with a killer dose of ripe fruit and cinnamon as well as some . Some Granny smith meets a touch of macintosh with a light dose of cinnamon. This is un-be-freaking-lievable!e

A Mes rate:
Bottle at LCRBM3. Excellent presentation. Very tall slim bottle in a well designed canister. Thick gold, totally flat but clearly quite thick with the alcohol. Lines the glass really well. Very very sweet but so perfectly balanced with the sugary apples and some tart rhubarb type notes. Light spice and an aged dusty feel too. Alcohol is very restained considering its strength. Awesome sweet and puckery finish with definite cinnamon. Absolutely glorious.

Cool, long skinny bottle. A clear bright gold liquid. Aroma of, you guessed it, apples. Some plastic and alcohol too. No carbonation. I would says that it lies dead in the glass but it does have some legs that creep up the sides of the glass. Sweet and tart and amazingly succulent. One little sip is making my mouth salivate like crazy. Strong alcohol presence. Loads of dry crisp apples and a bit of spices. Or is that just the alcohol kicking in. Little bit of lychee in there also. bierkoning hit it right on the head. Finishes smooth and alcoholic. A damn good cider. I wish I had more. Thanks to etowneraser for sharing.

Aroma has apples and some weird smell I couldn’t really determine, something pine/medicin like smell. Really special I must say. Clear, golden coloured, no head. Taste is very sweet with apples and some spicy touch. Bit liquor style. Nice, nice. Now I understand why one might like ciders.

2005 bottle, 3rd LCRBM. Apple pie and citrus in the aroma. Sour and syrupy. Very sweet but still perfectly balanced because of the fruity sourness. Citrus, lychee, pineapple, apple pie with a hint of cinnamon. The flavor is very close to perfection.

Fully pale gold colour, appealing. Musty, wild mushrooms like trompettes de la mort or even truffels! And apples, of course. Sweet, liqueurish taste, with again wild mushroom flavours, apples, malonic acid, blooming and explosing flavours, yet delicate. Alcoholic³, sticky MF. With little doubt, the very best cider I’ve ever had the honour to taste. This is sheer genius!

#900. Bottle sent as a bonus from a very generous Rastacouere. Pours a bright yellow color. Spiced cider like aroma with a touch of cinnamon notes. Strong, musty apple flavor with an almost mulled spice flavor. Pretty hot. Exceptionally dry finish despite the sweetness throughout.
