Bottle. Clear gold pour with big frothy white head. Aroma is really nice, nice clean apple juice aroma with just a few light farmy notes, straw, cider apples, light dusty notes. Taste is nice and crisp, fresh apples, mild but not sweet. Palate is light bodied, strong carbonation. Very crisp, extremely easy drinking. Delicious.

Pours orange with low white head. Aroma is of apples, cardboard, metal, pears, sugar. Taste is of apples, fruits, pears, sugar, some bitterness / tannins. Palate: Medium body, high carbonation. Overall: Quite nice, a tad tart. tom10101 (6228) - 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. Mister_Li (1535) - GERMANY - DEC 27, 2016

Egalement, un très beau cidre plus serré et tendu que le précédent, la pomme s’exprime pleinement et offre une belle complexité au nez et la bouche allie rondeur et fine amertume. olsvammel (7274) - Örebro, SWEDEN - OCT 7, 2016

23.04.2016, 0,75l bottle shared at local tasting:OldMrCrow (2446) - Seattle, Washington, USA - JUN 22, 2015
Small slightly fizzy shortlasting head. Aroma is slightly fresh fruity, sour apples, apple peel, apple cores, grass, minerals. Taste is slightly dry and fresh, apple peel, dry apples, minerals, apple cores, hay, paper, grass. Medium bitterness, slightly dry and watery mouthfeel. Fair enough.
750 ml bottle, caged and corked with a curious mushroom-shaped cork. For my 100th cider, I thought I’d pick up something special. I wasn’t 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. It’s 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. It’s 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.
