500ml bottle from Tesco Express (I think). Pours clear copper, bubbly head. Aroma is good sweet French cider apple fruit. Taste continues with nice sweet fleshy apple and floral notes. Typically French cidre character. Really hard to find fault in this.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle at home picked up from ummm? Sainsbury’s I think. Clear deep orange coloured pour with good effervescence, and a small off white bubbles. Aroma is medium sweet and tangy, bruised fruit, crystalline sugars, little wood. Flavour is composed of medium sweet apple, light honey, semi-crisp in the finish. Some light plastic flavours. Palate is medium full and a little sticky on the tongue, but finishes nicely. Packs good flavour for a 4% abv cider.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Lucozade orange; audibly fizzing, with a brief, excitable head. Sourish, edgy, slightly dank and acetic aroma with an enticing oak sweetness: a ringer for Lindemans Faro. Bright, effervescent, chalky stuff with notes of calamine, Appletise, oak, big drying tannins and..well, spontaneously fermented beer. A ringer for a sweetened gueuze/faro. Plus a bit of fruit. Good stuff.
