3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
750 cc from Whole Foods Plymouth. Pours highly carbonated dark straw with off-white head that laces well. Nose is apple, honey, cinnamon, earthy tartness. Tastes of intense apple, a balance of tart and sweet, more toward tart, with notes of honey, cinnamon, and a complex, dense, and thoroughyl refreshing mouthfeel and finish. This one excels.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
750ml bottle, shared by Micah. Clear orange pink color. Thin ring of white head. Bottle had been open for a bit, so carbonation may have died a little. Not that I mind. Light to medium body, lightly slick and sticky. Smooth, light carbonation. Lightly drying in the finish. Great big red juicy apple flavor. A bit sweet, but not cloying or sugary sweet like some cheap american ciders. Tasty stuff.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
750ml bottle (Kaubamaja, Tallinn)
Dry dusty apple aroma, a little subdued. Pleasant reddish tint, pours a bit fizzy, then goes flat. Full in the mouth - plenty of sugars to fill it out, but a nice sharp bite too, and carbonation crispens it up as well. Full of apples, maybe those cinnamon apples, very juicy. Very sweet, in a French cider context, but very well balanced and enormously drinkable. Perfect as an aperitif, the acidity is lovely, and the whole thing just gets the juices going.
