Bottle. [thanks Feldthaus]
Pours light hazy yellow with a small, fizzy, off-white head. Stays as a slight foam. Aroma has cinnamon, apple, soft sweetness. Very nice. Low carbonation, lovely dry mouthfeel. Flavoru is powerful, good cinnamon-buns, sugary, caramel, green apple. Very well balanced between candy sweetness and apple tartness.

Favorite cider from my trip around Normandy with GT2. Bottled. Beautiful cinnamon apple character. Thick dessert feel like spiced apple pie. Simply amazing.

750mL c&c in Honfleur, France. Labeled as "Cidre de Normandie Pur Jus Philippe Daufresne". Listed as 3% abv. Pours golden with small bubbles and heavy sparkling carbonation. Cinnamon apple dessert nose with creme brulee and apple pie. Taste is drier with more tannin character. Cinnamon apples still abound nicely. Very dry finish with crisp apples finish. A bit tannic for me. Not powdery thankfully. No plastic. Very dry finish. Great stuff. This was my fiancee’s favorite cider of the trip pretty much. 8/4/7/4/15=3.8

375 ml bottle at a restaurant in Houlgate, Normandie, France. Deep hazy yellow with a touch of green. Soft tart apple fruitiness, clear notes of yeast. mediuym bodied, soft carbonation. Light sweetness with a firm acidity, faint apple peel bitterness.
