ivorywhite head that disappears fast but not completely (!). goldenyellow colour. aroma bit of old cheese, lots and lots of apples, bit of pears. taste is applesauce, apples with a rather sweet finish. medum body, rather carbonated. not much sour or funk character, but there is soo much taste of apples here, impressive. weird the label reads "brut" and the description here reads "demi-sec", indeed rather demi-sec. bottle 75cl / thanks rood! rood (92) - Borgerhout, BELGIUM - AUG 27, 2014
If you would like to smell & taste jasmine, apples, honey, hay, sweat, than this is your cider. Awesome mouthfeel. Excellent balance between the sweetness and the acidity. Very nice cider! maneliquor (3514) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - MAY 6, 2014
Bottle from Pour House Dunsborough. Pours clear straw yellow with plenty of bubbles and a lightly fluffed white head. Nose is all about fresh apple skin with mild vinegar and vanilla running over some biscuit. Very dry in the mouth with loads of freshly cut apples and bright, very green skin. It’s like a dry Champagne. Works an absolute treat. One of the better ciders I’ve had goodbyeohio (36) - Portland, Oregon, USA - DEC 17, 2013
Unique. Luminescent golden pour with orange tinge. Aroma of fermenting apples, slight tinge of cider vinegar with an underlying vanilla note. Perfect carbonation introduces flavors of overripe apples which lead in to a smoky, band-aid-y type phenolic, but light and compliementary. Not too much to detract. Makes a low ABV cider like this quite interesting. Overall this is a light, sessionable chugger which has depth if you care to look. Really enjoyable however probably best quaffed in the summer months. Jonte (1413) - Gothenburg, SWEDEN - JUN 16, 2013
Bottle. 5%. Clear golden colour. Lots of apples in aroma and flavor. A bit of earth/dust. Lightly tart. Semi sweet. A bit sharp carbonation.

Bottle from Takamura Online. Nice semi-sweet apple nose, ripe but still a bit tart. Lovely deep golden color with a medium head that goes right to late. Very tasty—ripe fruit, minerals, light vegetables and soil, sweet enough to be fruity and have nice apple flavors, but nowhere near “sweet.” Dry, slightly sulfury, chalky finish. Nice, prickly carbonation. Very refreshing and tasty. Not super complex, maybe, but I could drink gallons.

Bottle at NK Bar. Golden colour with a small quickly vanishing head. Earthy sour apple aroma. Flavour is somewhat sweet, fruits, apple. gyllenbock (9664) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - MAR 22, 2013
Sample at a tasting at Systembolaget, March 2013. (Label says Sidre Brut Tendre, vintage 2012)
Clear golden with a small head. A lot of apples both in the aroma and taste. A bit tart with notes of apple cake, wood and something that reminded of leather. Not that sweet. Actually refreshing and with a dry finish.
