At a tasting, as "cidre bouche brut", thanks zvikar, small head that dissapears quite quickly, a touch hazy yellow colour, dominant yeasty nose with notes of mud, leather and compost, weak sweetness tasting of overipe apples and also something lactic. A nice rustic cider that is a touch coarse.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
750ml bottle, corked & caged: Pours to a goldenrod-light golden, totally clear body with a very small, instantly dying white fizzy head. It seems to be highly carbonated, almost champagne-like when you pour it into the glass. The aroma is a light crabapple, mildly sour apple skins, with some nice earthy apples and hints of aged barrel, along with just barely a hint of orange blossom (sniff hard). Very crisp, lightly sweet and sour nose. The taste is sweet apple skins, fairly acidic, with some fruity wooden barrel, fresh ripe apple, hints of lemon, orange, honey, melon, and very hidden fruity yeast. Light bodied, very spritzer-like carbonation, leads to a very crisp and resfreshing palate. Unfortunately I don’t notice any sediment in the bottle, and it seems unusually clear for a French cider, so it seems that this one is highly filtered and not bottle conditioned - both of which really take away from what a great cider can be. It’s still refreshing and a nice change of pace.
