3.6 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Aroma is amazing.. Gueuze-like with serious horse blanket and sun-scorched grass notes. Apple plays a part, but in a seriously funky/tart way. Appears orange, a disappointment considering the promised rose character. Lightly effervescent with funk up front and a dry, tannic finish. This is missing the beef in the middle, but age may be a factor as well as the dry fermentation. The intensity of the wild character is awesome, I just wish the cider had a bit more body to fully express its unique profile. Still recommended, and a worthy drink.
bottle from Les Caves, rated on 8/21/13 - This cider pours very bubbly with a small head. It smells mainly of green apples. This is a dry, tart cider with an effervescent body. It’s tasty and rather interesting. While I’d say it’s a very good cider, the price point makes me want it to be great.
