3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
200 ml bottle bought at CitySuper in Harbour City, Tsim Sha Tsui.
Very pale yellow colour; Near zero head and residual white foam which fades in 10 seconds; Almost no lacing with quite fizzy carbonation; Musty strong tart aroma of apple juice, perfume and sparkling white wine; Light sweet, and really tart taste of apple juice, white wine, strong musty cellar and light tannic; Light body. Watery, dry crisp and tart palate; Mouth feel is tart and light sweet, perfumey apple wine in truly musty and woody background. Low sweetness, more like a Brut than Demi-Sec.Tart and wood taste is really strong but attractive; Dry after taste, tart and crisp to mouth.
Comments: Glad to have just a small bottle to sample this pretty cool one: semi-sweet in name only, more like a Brut with full on dryness and tartness, some real good mustiness and perfume. Unlike most cider, this one is more wine-ish than soda. A real deal and a keeper!

25cl bottle. nett säuerlich-süßer Antrunk. Voller Körper, dabei trotzdem angenehm leicht, fruchtig-apfelig, sehr süffig, kaum komplex. Der Nachgeschmack ist mittellang, schön sauer-apfelig, schön natürlich.
--> Sehr leckerer, apfelig-fruchtiger Cidre!

2.5 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
A light yellow cider with a rim along the side of the glass of off-white head. The aroma is a slightly perfumated apple aroma - I wonder if it is the apple sort used. The flavor is sweet and very apply, combined with slight acidic notes. But the body is thin.
