COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
It's remarkable that we do not have a big cider tradition in Denmark, as it is known in Normandy, Bretagne, and Southern England. We have the apples. Perhaps even some of the best. A good mixture of Ingrid Marie, Gråsten, Belle de Boskoop and James Grieve. The proces from apple to cider is like from grape to wine. The apples are pressed to juice, that is fermented into very dry cider. Then unfermented juice is added (like in German wine) and a bit of carbonization (like in Vinho Verde). This makes the cider nicely fresh and fruity with lots of small sparkles in the glass. In both aroma and flavor the notes of apples and flowers are accentuated with notes of nuts to finish off. It is the sweet/acidic flavor that makes it easy to enjoy. Chilled served in a white wine glass. As aperitif. To lunch. To a piece of cheese. This is cider for adults.

Xavalias (256) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - JUL 24, 2015
Pours clear pale yellow, fizzy first but quickly flatens, no head. Aroma of fresh green apples, woody. The taste is very light sweet to dry, moderate acidity. The palate is a bit tart, but pleasant.

MichaelAwesome (5831) - Wanne-Eickel, North Rhine-Westphalia, GERMANY - MAR 12, 2015
Na, der war aber auch nur ganz. Irgendwie dünn, trotz vernünftigen Alkoholgehalts. Und ebenso aromatisch einseitig. Äpfelchen und Zucker. Vielleicht noch ein Hauch Limette. Ganz ok.

McTapps (5840) - Ruhrcity, GERMANY - MAR 12, 2015
Bottle from Desverger - many thanks! The cider has got a light hazy golden-yellow colour with a medium body and good carbonation. Aroma of sweet apples and leaves with some hints of oak. Taste of old apples, trees, honey, flowers and dust. Quite sweet finish. Easy drinkable, yet nothing that extraordinary.

Desverger (4192) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - JUL 15, 2014

JanLaursen (3227) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - APR 29, 2014
Flaske, 75 cl. Gylden og næsten klar. Dufter rent og klart af æbler. Men er lige lovlig sød og midtersøgende i munden. Det giver en kort, utilfredsstillende finish.

Japalo (1487) - DENMARK - NOV 21, 2013
Bottle@home. Very light yellow. Clear. Small head. Fair carbonated. Intense fresh lively apple-pear notes. Dry with a sweet finish. No sourness like mine. Fine cider.

One of my favorite ciders. Very dry and with a strong taste of real apples. This cider is, for me, what ciders should be about; Apples.
