tom10101 (5753) - Quebec, CANADA - JAN 30, 2017
Bottle (750 ml), split 3-ways. Clear bright golden with a small white head leaving little to no lacing. Aroma is of rich apple juice with mild funk and honeyed notes. Taste is lightly sweet and has more depth than aroma with rather strong honeyed notes, light funk, mild acidity, apple flesh and applesauce. Light body. Soft carbonation. Honeyed finish. Surprisingly flavorful for such a low abv cider. It deserves much better ratings. Very easy drinking.

Egalement, un trs beau cidre plus serr et tendu que le prcdent, la pomme sexprime pleinement et offre une belle complexit au nez et la bouche allie rondeur et fine amertume.

OldMrCrow (2431) - Seattle, Washington, USA - JUN 22, 2015
750 ml bottle, caged and corked with a curious mushroom-shaped cork. For my 100th cider, I thought Id pick up something special. I wasnt quite sure what that would be, and so I was delighted to find this -- my first Eric Bordelet -- on the shelf at QFC-University village.

Opens with a faint puff of funk and pours a bright apple-juice yellow with abundant fizz. Indeed, this is richly carbonated and sparkles on the tongue. The aroma is a fusion of rich apple and a mild barnyard funk that keeps things interesting. The flavor follows, blending three elements together: the rustic funk, the sweet apple, and a tart acidity. The combination is really good together. Its my favorite Norman cider to date, both because it works so well and because it lacks the aggressive sulfuric aroma from most of the others. Its also light and refreshing at 5%. To me, this seems like an inspiration or target toward which some of the best PacNW artisan ciders are aiming. Very happy to have tried it.

tl;dr summary: Worth the money.

berntholer (1612) - Antwerp, BELGIUM - SEP 14, 2014
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!

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!
