craftycarl21 (2338) - Seattle, Washington, USA - NOV 12, 2012
Draft at Churchkey. Clear honey colored pour with minimal bubbly head. Nose and flavor bring gorgeous tart apple skins, hints of oak tannin, funk, cheesecloth, and apple juice. Flavor brings a touch less acidity and bite, but still that amazing complex real apple skin character. Clean, refreshing, and ridiculously clean for 7%; I can’t even imagine the volume I could drink were it cheaper. Fantastic.

Countbeer (6342) - Best of E-Town mit 2 Brauhausen, NETHERLANDS - FEB 12, 2017
Bottle: Vintage 2013: Served in a Chouffe glass: Lively and quick disappearing white head. Cloudy yellow body. Nose of apple skin, ferme ted apple, cellar, stone, wood, spice, earth, cabbage, rubber... Flavour of apples, liquor, bitter tart (not sour), vinous, wood, earth, grapes, apple peel/skin, fermented apples, light dust and sulphur... Aftertaste is earthy, sulphur, apple peel, tart (not sour), little chemical... Medium carbo, sparkling mouthfeel, more than medium bodied. Does not get better with time and air. Every sip gets more difficult... pfff...

anstei (1699) - Zurich, SWITZERLAND - DEC 23, 2016
Bottle, courtesy of SinH4, 2015 vintage. Pours clear golden. Aroma is light funk, but also clearly a lot of dry green apples. Body is medium and fruity sweet, crisp carbonation. Palate lingers with sweet apples, lots of flesh. Juicy and really tasty, but just a tad too sweet for the ultimate drinking experience. I should age this.

Bottle shared with a friend, poured a deep yellow golden colour, nose of fresh sweet apple juice, vanilla, green apples, light sweet pears, oak, warm sweetness of calvados barrels, light cinnamon, brightly carbonated. Refreshing

czar (8547) - Québec, Quebec, CANADA - OCT 9, 2016
pours almost clear bright yellow with a small white cap, healthy bubbles. woodsy honeyed apples, soft tannins - obvious calvados; leaves, lots of flowers, yeast, minerals. bright carbonation, light to medium body - oily; semi-sweet and woody lightly tannic finish. semi-sweet oaky cider with lots of farmhouse character, which is domaine familial dupont’s signature. much enjoyed!

ciocanelu (1830) - Timisoara, ROMANIA - SEP 19, 2016
Clear golden color, a bit of off-white head. Aroma has intense fermented apples and some oak. Taste is really sweet at first with ripe apples, honey and some apple pits bitterness on the finish. Overall it’s quite sweet, not really easy to drink but quite tasty.

SinH4 (4056) - Garching b. München, GERMANY - SEP 19, 2016
Golden color with hardly any head. Aroma is sweet natural apples, wood, caramel, some funk. Taste is sweet apples, also tartness, wood, some tannins, some calvados hotness im the back, but very balanced. Effervescent carbonation. Sweet, but in a natural way, and awesomely so. Still, it’s quite sweet, not for everybody.

jfb (5994) - Freising, GERMANY - SEP 19, 2016
(bottle) clear golden colour with a quickly-diminishing white head. aroma of mealy apples and melted butter, with a touch of vanilla, some white wine vinegar and white bread rolls. flavour is mostly the same, heavy apples and vanilla, very sweet, with some notes of tobacco and brown sugar in the finish. heavy-bodied with lively carbonation. too sweet.

Ritzn (986) - Bavaria, GERMANY - SEP 19, 2016
Bautiful gold without real head. Aroma is natural apple, sweet and sour. Taste is sweet and sour, comparable with honey, very nice. Medium carbonated, very apple juicy finish. This tastes like a very good mix of apple juice and water. A little dryness later. This is good.

Young Bottle. Golden. Great light fermented apple aroma, sparkly light sweet, dry, start of a white wine note, sweet finish. Room for things to happen.

wiedrzensky (838) - SLOVAK REPUBLIC - SEP 1, 2016
Shared bottle. Pours is clear golden. Aroma is vinous, fresh apples, apple zest, calvados, light basement aromas. Taste is light sweet, fresh apples, light calvados on tongue. Heavy body, slick texture, soft carbonation, light alcohol warmth in finish. Awesome.
