Excellence is the "Cuvée Prestige" from Stassen, perfected from the knowledge gained from centuries of cider-making. Fruity and sparkling, this cider is the perfect accompaniment for any festive occasion. Serve Chilled.

Yet another superb cider of Stassen Vin. It pours out of the champagne bottle in a clear dark golden colour with medium body. Nose of ripe apples. First taste was the one of sweet Most/Apfelwein, followed by ripe red apples, grass, leaves and caramel. Light sour hints and a quite dry finish. Enjoyed it a lot because it was so refreshing and delicious. Would have liked another bottle of this (btw you won’t recognize the 7 % alc. at all...).

Excellence ? Beinahe. Durchaus exzellent in seiner Optik, seiner perfekt abgestimmten Süßen und der Perlung, die an einen wunderbaren Schaumwein erinnert. Äpfel sind im Aroma, genau wie Champagnerhefe und Zitrusfrüchte. Allein der Abgang wird leicht derb nach Apfelkernen. Aber vielleicht ist dies ja echt gewollt.

Bottle from a Delhaize in Leuven. Poured a yellow-golden, clear body. Slightly vinuous, sulphury appley aroma. While initially seemingly balanced, the sweetness starts to dominate in this one, something you don’t expect in a 7% cider. Slightly dusty and very lightly funky, so as not to offend anyone I guess, this ends up being a drink that’s sorta enjoyable, but for the presentation and the name, a disappointment, just nothing too special.

UPDATED: JUL 29, 2013 Elegancki trochę wytrawny lecz nie gożki. Lekka słodycz przełamuję wytrawność. Po ożeźwieniu i przełknięciu trochę rozgrzewa w gardle, a to za sprawą najwyższego procentu alkoholu jaki miałem doczynienia z cydrem, ale sprytnie on ukryty

Metallic golden-yellow drink; very "moussating" to a good, but Champagne-like disappearing white head. Apples, dry, Champagne yeastesters, vinous; applejuice, but much drier; leafy - even appleblossoms. Dry and sweet taste alike, like some real ice-cream, without becoming too sweet; dried apples all the same. Very sparkling, fizzy as sparkling wine, but it has enough restsugars to avoid being thin. I’m not a big fan of moussating ciders - my standard are bone-dry Welsh-English scrumpies - but in its class, this must be one of the better ones. I’m agreably surprised this is Belgian made.
