Moravius (944) - Berlin, Berlin, GERMANY - DEC 25, 2015
Flasche (Westons 2014 Vintage Cider, oak aged, 50 cl) von Jenny Lou’s, Peking. - Helles Goldgelb, blank. - In der Nase herbe Frucht (Holzapfel) und recht deutliche holzige Noten. - Schmeckt nach holzigem Apfel, ohne weiche Frucht; kaum süß aber durchzogen von kräftiger holziger Herbe, die zum Ende hin unangenehm dominiert und von schwachen pelzig-moosigen Noten begleitet wird. Nur mild rezent, mineralisches Mundgefühl, ähnlich wie ein trockener Riesling, aber nicht spritzig sondern leblos und flach. Ein Restchen honigartiger Süße zwischen all dem Muff. - Enttäuschend; überhaupt nicht mit einem guten frischen Apfelwein zu vergleichen. (Verkostung: 22.12.2015.)

GoufCustom (1299) - HONG KONG - NOV 26, 2015


500 ml bottle “2014 Vintage” bought at CitySuper in Harbour City, Tsim Sha Tsui.

Clear pale golden yellow colour; Less than none-quarter finger head with residual soapy white foam which fades in 10 seconds; No lacing with notable slow soft carbonation; Fragrant aroma of apple wine with strong tartness, strong wood barrels, light sandalwood, apple juice, white wine, light sugar and moderate tannic; Mid to light sweet taste of dry apple wine, with strong alcohol, liquorices, sparkling wine, barrel, light sugar and very light tannic; Light body, watery and very boozy palate; Mouth feel is good dry winey cider drenched in strong but quite tasty booze, not as hard-hitting as its 8.2% suggests. Barrel taste is permeating but not as strong as the aroma. Light tartness and liquorices finish. Easy and quite nice!... Fairly dry after taste. Boozy and winey to mouth.

Comments: This is my ideal version of a scrumpy - strong but tasty booze, very white winey, not too dry and with good deal of sweetness. Not as barrel-ish or tart enough for my likings, but still very enjoyable. Nice one!

Aromas y sabores ligeramente a maderas con ligera sensación alcohólica con 8.2 vol. Asemeja a las españolas mucho menos ácida. Buena sobretodo por los ligeros toques de maderas.

Pours brilliant golden colour with tiny white head, which immidiately dissapeared. Visially high carbonation. Aroma with notes of an alcohol, oak and apples. Flavor is similar, firstly sweet, with slightly strong alcohol note, vinous, with notes of apples, hints of grape. Carbonation is high. Finish is tart, astrigent.
