3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
vintage 2011 Bottle (from barley wine), enjoyed while watching the OL opening show..clear yellow, no head.
very nice tart and sour apple aroma, faint wood, very good cider aroma.flavor is apple, some faint fruitpeely bitterness, some dryness that can be felt on the teeth, High alc. adds a sort of bitterness to it , ABV might be a little too high. aroma is better than taste, but still a fine strong cider.

Dark golden colour. This cider is dry and woody. There’s some sweet apple taste in the middle but overall the dryness is too overwhelming.

Bottled. Surprisingly dark golden, close to ambery orange, colour, which has a small white head. Aroma is sweet apples, some wood, mild sourness as well as quite sugary and yeasty notes. Flavour is sugary, wooden, mild sour wooden notes as well as some sweet ripe apples to it. Mild almost syrupy notes to it as well. Balanced and quite delicious. This one I was sipping my share of for quite a while.

Sample at Örebro Öl & Whisky 2014. Fruity smell and taste with some fruits and light funk. A bit harsh though and has an aroma that reminds me of fruit pith.
