Introducing Lapinette, a Norman-style cidre brut, aged in French oak barrels. Reminiscent of the old days in France, before the great wars, when wine makers of the south shared their used barrels with their northern cousins, the resulting ciders were a little bit rough, unfiltered with a balance of flavors from the fruit, the farm and the barrel. Virtue has recreated this traditional cider by sourcing tart fruit, patiently aging for months in wine barrels, and serving as is, without fine filtration. Lapinette is a window into our past, a very tasty time indeed.

Pour on tap at the Republic SC, clear straw yellow pour with no head, aroma brought notes of nice oak, earth, funk into a bit of lemon, tart apple, slight yeasty, touch of a weird fruity notes as well. Taste was a mix of oak, earth, funk into some dusty basement, some tart apple, yeasty notes, finishing tart, funky.

Bottle - Pours pale yellow with a ring of white bubbles. Nose is dry apple, a little oak, and a bit of dry, leathery Brett. Taste is the same--lots of dry apple, oak, and Brett. Chardonnay finish. Thin and light carbonation. Pretty decent.

crossovert (8853) - Illinois, USA - NOV 9, 2014
UPDATED: NOV 16, 2014 750ml bottle. 2013 harvest. Hazed pour with large bubbles. Nose is tart and sour smelling, some tropical and citrus notes. Falvor is great, earthy, some spice, dry oak, tartness, bittersweetness. Very dry and decently tart, really nice one. Edit: dried a draft pour of this beer and it smelled like filled improper diet baby diapers so proceed with caution.

Draft to snifter. Looks good; a mostly transparent light gold with white lacing that steadily dissipates entirely. Smells of cider apples and oak with a nice balance of tartness and a bit of white wine. Tastes like it smells with a light and fairly dry mouthfeel. Pleasntly tart on the palate. A good cider.

Tap at Pony Bar. Nice apple and barnyard nose. Pale golden color. Funky, minerally flavor, a bit dull.
