3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottled (backlog). Yellow colour, not too much head. Aroma is apples, some mild vanilla, vinegar and nectar. Flavour is rather similar in a quite nice balance. Mild acidic notes to it as well. By the time of the rating, this was one of the better real ciders in Finland.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
500 ml bottle. BB? (Heila) Heinola, Finland.
Clear yellowish watery colour with a small lively white head.
Something chemical, apples, dryness, apple wine and mild fruity sweetness in the aroma. The flavour fruity sweetness, apple, mild vinous notes, dryness and some floral notes. Very dry and fizzy. Apple is not that strong. Much much better than the 4.7% version. Rather tasty.
