Medium dry. Available in 500ml bottles at Sainsburys supermarkets as part of their Taste The Difference range.
Produced in France especially for Sainsburys by cider co-operative Les Celliers Associes where their passion is for quality products and respect for their environment. Traditional methods are combined with the best of modern facilities. This cider has been made from 100% pure juice pressed from hand selected Brittany cider apples. They slowly ferment this juice at low temperature to produce a sparkling medium dry cider, packed full of refreshing, intense apple flavours.

500ml bottle from Sainsbury’s. Pours golden orange with no head. Aromas of apples, caramel. Taste is also sweet at first, but bone dry at the end. Reminds me of similar stuff drunk in Brittany.

danlo (1440) - Darlington, Durham, ENGLAND - JAN 15, 2014
500ml bottle from Sainsbury’s, Darlington. Pours a deep orange golden colour with a lively white foam head that quickly disappears and aroma of apple, buttery pastry, some wood. Sweet apple flavour, with apple pie & woody oaky notes, plus some tannins. Slightly oily mouthfeel, light to medium bodied, medium carbonation, dry tannic finish. Quite drinkable.

DruncanVeasey (7379) - NUNEATON, CONF N, Warwickshire, ENGLAND - JAN 25, 2013
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.

harrisoni (14465) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - JAN 2, 2011
Bottle from Sainsburys drunk whilst ironing shirts for work. Clear orange gold colour, no head. Light apple pie aroma. Very light cider apple character which is not unpleasant. Good dryness on the end. Even some dryness attacking the gums which is very good. Still some residual sugar sweetness. Tasty cider and I liked it. The sparkling bit isn’t over the top either.
