Clear gold coloured cider, no head. aroma: apples, sweetish, lots of apple juice, some solvent, tannins. MF: soft carbon, medium body. Taste: lots of apple juice, soft sweetness, bit acidic, dry, little bitter. Aftertaste: some tannins, nice and dry finish, lots of apple juice, nice stuff.
2015 vintage. 750mL bottle, pours a hazy golden with a small, quickly-dissipating white head. Aroma brings out a wonderful barnyard funk upfront, with champagne yeast and lightly sweet apples. Flavour is along the same lines, with lots of barnyard funk, champagne yeast and rustic, lightly sweet apples. Lovely funkiness and champagne effervescence to this. Excellent. dzudohonor (478) - POLAND - JUN 23, 2017
Łał piękny kwaśny i stajenny aromat (funky), w smaku już raczej słodziudkie jabłuszka. Pyszny. seposso (1) - - JAN 1, 2017 does not count
Initially acrid notes of baby urine softening into a mildly astringent bouquet of putrefying verbena on dampened stone; yeasty afterglow and a pleasing finish. Capa (4007) - JAPAN - NOV 10, 2016
2011 bottle drank Nov 10, 2016. We bought this bottle, sort of forgot about it, moved overseas, left it in a dark basement for a few years, found it, moved it to a fridge, etc, drinking it today. I figure it has gone south since it’s only 4.5%. Annnnd, I’m totally wrong. This is really great. Clear medium orange golden. Sweet, apple, light suffer, a very faint smoke note. Nice dry apple finish. The flavor is complex but very well blended. Such an enjoyable cider. Great.

Very similar to the non-organic version (3.7) - perhaps a little more musty and the apple seemed a little more dramatic/fresher, though I could have been imagining that. Slightly preferred. Bule (2315) - California, USA - NOV 18, 2015
750ml bottle of 2014 vintage. Pours a pale orange color without any head. Medium sweetness. Nice apple flavor but a little mustiness.

30.09.2015, 0,375l bottle (2011 vintage) shared @ BBGTC tasting:ej (1332) - Hauglandshella, NORWAY - SEP 30, 2015
Nice slightly fizzy shortlasting head. Aroma is dry funky, overripe (almost rotten) crowberries, oak, brett, apple skin, yellow apples, moss. Taste is sweet grassy, apple skin, oak, yellow apples, sugar, overripe crowberries, hay, grass, weeds, cheese. Slightly dry funky mouthfeel. Fair enough, kind of interesting.
Bottle shared with BBGTC. old bottle. Pale golden White bubbly top. Aroma is oxidized, Heather, crowberries and Wood. Taste was even more oxidized, dishwasher liqud and cheese. Some yellow Apple peel. Light body ClubGonzo (5679) - Bergen, NORWAY - SEP 30, 2015
Bottle, shared with BBGTC. Wow, a low-strength vintage (2011) cider! Thanks for sharing! :-) Pours a clear light golden body with a small white head. Nose is sawdust, wood, crowberries, yellow apple peel and hints of caramel and apple cores in the back. Taste is dusty apple tones, wood, yellow apple peel, blue cheese, caramel and hints of brown sugar. Funky oxidiation going on here, I like the unexpected flavors coming out of this one.
