Ok, taking a break from the low alcohol ratings now to rate a French sider. A natural follow-up, dont you think? No? :-P Oh well, this one pours a clear, golden body with a fainting white cider-style retention. Aroma is wood, fermented apples and hints of something astringent I cant put my finger on. Taste is oak, yellow apples and hints of citric flavors. Medium carbonation on palate. Flavorful despite the low ABV, although perhaps a tad bit sweet from as you drink along. Funnily, ciders are very hard to balance in the ways of sweetness, in my experience. So far, Ive only found a few that makes this feat with some conviction. Mellow and nice, the Bordelet Sydre Brut Tendre aint such a bad cider at all.

Its unclear, dark orange and the aroma has notes of apple, apple peal and oven-baked apple. The flavour has a light sweetness and a nice dryness, a light apple sourness and notes of apple, apple peal, wood, and the finish is dry and slightly apple sour. Its very nice and refreshing.

larsga (7404) - Oslo, NORWAY - JUN 12, 2010
Small offwhite head doesnt last. Deep yellow body with carbonation. Sharp green apple and wood aroma with sulphury notes. Sweet-astringent fresh apple taste with wooden sulphury notes. Mid-bodied. Mild, fresh mouthfeel. Empty dryish faintly alcoholic aftertaste. Quite nice, and fairly drinkable. (0.75l bottle shared by gr0ve.)

Sigmund (7038) - Tau, NORWAY - JUN 10, 2010
750 ml "champagne" bottle, as Eric Bordelet Sidre Brut Tendre, from Vinmonopolet. ABV is 5%. Golden colour, pours very fizzy with a big but short-lived head. The aroma has notes of oxidised cider apples and sulphur, hints of smoke. The flavour is medium sweet (or medium dry, if you like), notes of cider apples again (of course), hints of sulphur. Easy drinking.

MiP (15394) - Snderborg, DENMARK - APR 17, 2010

oh6gdx (25965) - Vasa, FINLAND - APR 14, 2010
Bottled (2007 vintage). Hazy deep goldeny orange colour with no head. Aroma is green apples, some wood as well as earthy and herbal. Flavour is quite muh the same with some slight acidicness and some slight strange sweetish notes lurking in the background.

(cork stampled 2007) No appreciable head present, but lots of bubbles making their way up from the bottom of the glass. Nice light golden body. Aroma is there, but nothing that really stands out as anything special. Apple flavor is really not pronounced as you consume it, but gets more pronounced in the aftertaste. Some residual sweetness as would be expected from something that is "demi-sec" All-in-all Ive had better apple ciders elsewhere.
