2011 dated 750ml. clear pale yellow body with seltzer water effervescence. mild generic apple / pear aroma with softer touches of unripe kiwi and lemon meringue pie. substantial calcium carbonate and granite / spring water mineral character; some sea salt / sand notes; soft apple + pear expression but missing any distinct quince note (and me being unfamiliar with quince, which I hear is basically a pear). light body; between dry and semi-dry (not bone-dry as the bottle says); mild unripe apple and pear with suggestions of lemon custard. increasing malic acid in the finish (bitter, astringent, acidic apple skins). it’s not deep or complex and develops no depth over the course of a sip or a glass. well-made but very static.
Bottle from Astor Wines. Sipping away on my stoop, awaiting the inevitable onslaught of trick or treaters.
Ommegang anniversary glass. Clear, golden, laquered body.
Smell is deep, floral & fuming with bittersweet pears & black tea-like essence.
Taste is bittersweet apples, moderately tannic and salivating. Light oak. Flat, with hints of continued fermented. Medium, lingering acid. Curious drying, pithy finish that reminds me of the one other quince cider I've had in my lifetime.
Abv is on point, maybe a touch hot.
Very tasty & quafable. S_Side_Smitty (802) - Lakeland, Florida, USA - JUL 1, 2017
2011 vintage. Pours crystal clear and gold in color with a quickly dissipating medium white head. Aroma is fermented apples with just a faint fermented funk. Taste is initially tart apples followed quickly by heavy carbonation and back to apple skins. Really, kind of muted overall probably due to age. Joakgust (1487) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - APR 5, 2017

Dryish aroma of perry pears, apples and quince, hints of sulphites. Very moderate carbonation in the mouth. Dry flavour of pears, apples and quince, again hints of sulphites. Short finish.
