Bottle - Lots of horse blanket. Clear gold with a frothy white head. Nice farmhouse, effervescent and a nice bit of acidity. Great.

apickles (442) - North Yorkshire, ENGLAND - JAN 23, 2015
Golden in colour very slight head, hardly any fizz in the glass. Hardly any nose. Slightly fizzy in the mouth a little toffee and a little drying on the mouth at the end.

b3shine (8105) - Indiana, USA - SEP 27, 2014
75 cl bottle to tulip (shared with the Mrs; thanks DuffMan!). Looks good; a hazy apricot with white head and lively carbonation. Smells of cider apples, champagne yeast, and a bit of dust and smoke. A bit of horse blanket as well. Tastes like it smells, but the apple presence is stronger (great apples!), with a nice, dry mouthfeel. The other flavors reemerge as the cider warms and opens up. DuffMan did an excellent job describing this beer; this cider is stunning!

gegwilson (3199) - North Yorkshire, ENGLAND - SEP 26, 2014
Bottle from a French supermarket. Deep golden and relatively still. The taste is medium sweet apples with a little vanilla and sherbet. A very dry finish.

UXO (1486) - CANADA - MAY 6, 2014
Pours a clear pale yellow gold with an effervescent head foaming up big before settling back to a persistent half finger. Nose is sharp apple vinegar, horse blanket and dusty basement, faint cheese. Taste is tartly pleasant and follows the nose, not too sweet, with a crisp, dry finish. Mouth feel is light and pleasant, buoyed by rolling champagne carbonation. This is a lot of fun, with a lot of the best characteristics of a champagne and a lambic. Definitely worth trying!

DuffMan (9538) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - APR 1, 2012
Bottle, shared with mmmIPA. Hazy pale yellow gold, fine carbonation, effervescent head that lasts only seconds. Aroma is absolutely awesome: vinegar, horseblanket, cobwebs/dusty basement, cheese, and apples. Flavours are equally amazing, like an apple tart baked in a leather pan, stored in your basement under a horseblanket, and served with soft rindy cheese. Lightly spicy, and with a vinegar tang in the finish. There is something else here too, almost like an arrowroot cookie flavour with those fresh apples. I could drink and drink and drink.... Incidentally, this is the second Normandie-style cider I’ve had, a style that almost should be in a class all its own.

Torontoblue (85) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - JAN 26, 2012
RBAG 2012. Thanks to pintbypint for bringing this wonderful ’organic’ cider. Pours a bright yellow with a quickly settling white lace. Huge aromas of fresh tart apples, wild yeast, grass, barnyard funk, leather, sweet apple pie with a hint of cinnamon (think that’s what VBS was looking for). Nice dry, tarty finish, which is very, very refreshing. Very Lambic in it’s drinking qualities and a sign of good fruit in this cider. Wanted this 750ml bottle to myself but I HAD to share!!

gramity (1625) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - JAN 25, 2012
RBAG 2012. Thanks pintbypint. This was an amazing cider with some really impressive sour notes. Lots of tart fresh apples. A very fresh aroma and taste that I found very refreshing. The sweetness was not overpowering and appropriately offset by the tart qualities. Yeast is noticeable and enjoyable. Really great cider.
