3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
From barrel @ La Cidrerie, Honfleur. Aroma has apple, some earth tones, flowers. Unsure about colour and haze since it was served in a ceramic cup. Lasting, thin head. The taste is light - moderate sweet, has apple, bit honey. Nice.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
750ml bottle (Sarkozy, Vilnius)
Pleasant spicy aroma, gentle sweet apple. Thin palate, carbonation high. Nice level of acidity behind the otherwise sweet appley body. Gentle hint of bacon too. Carbonation a bit crisp for me. Very nice cidre, sophisticated and the spiciness is very characterful.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. Hazy yellow orange. Aroma is mild cheese, funked apple, bread, brown sugar. Taste is sweet. High carbonation, but leaves a crispy mouthfeel at first. Once carbonation subsides with swirling, it gets sticky.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
UPDATED: JAN 23, 2015 2013 vintage - golden and cloudy cider with a lot of fizz in the galss and a small white head. Slightly farmy whiff on the nose! Very fizzy in th emouth. Full of apply flavour, quite sweet and a nice finish.
2012 vintage - golden in colour with a fizzy white head. Hardly any nose, just the tiniest sweet smell. Ver fizzy in the mouth. Quite a sweet tasting cider, not tons of flavour. A bit sweet for my taste. (2012 score was 2.9)

UPDATED: SEP 5, 2014 Bottle bought direct from the cidery visited while doing the cider trail. Aside from the cider itself the farm tour comes highly recommended. Sampled later at the campsite. The 2013 vintage pours amber with some white froth. Initially sweet with plenty of fizz on the tongue. A pleasant apple taste with a clean finish. refreshing and quaffable. Nice. The 2012 vintage was amber, clear and sparkling with a little crisp dryness on the finish. Average score given.

3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottled. Hazy golden, coarse head. Lambic and red berries up front. Blue cheese, sugar and rubbery smoke. Fruity and salty with light body. Interesting and richly flavourful but with some weird edges.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 12/20
2005 bottle. Sent in a photo to upload. No, this bottle was not agitated, i have let it sit for a while, and it did not travel. Started off as a gusher, cork popped as soon as I started to undo the metal ties. Gushed for about a minute. Opaque fizzy yellow appearance. Slight barnyard funk to the aroma, but not as bad as some others. There is also some plastic and then the apples and maybe some eau poire. Very very very very fizzy. First sip nearly went up my nose with all the bubbles. I couldn’t taste anything at first, just trying to overcome the carbonation. It is inexcusable. Much fizzier than a sod, have problems getting it down, let alone anaylzing the flavor. From what little I could get it is sweet with some woody elements. Hard to drink as each sip = 1 burp. Let my glass sit for a while, and bubbles were still rising vigorusly 30 minutes later. Something is wrong with this one.
