callmemickey (4344) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 25, 2012
Hazy golden-orange body. Fizzy white head quickly receded after forming. Nose is bright funky apples. The maturation in the Calvados barrels adds miscellaneous fruity notes and oak. Flavor carries a nice semi-sweet apple component, light acidity and oak. Medium to light bodied, effervescent carbonation, refreshing finish. Complex and enjoyable.

czar (8089) - 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 (1613) - 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 (3427) - 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 (5743) - 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 (679) - 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 (812) - 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.

Bozo_skeleton (1053) - Grenoble, FRANCE - AUG 7, 2016
Robe dorée de fines bulles viennent perler en surface. Le nez s’ouvre sur des arômes de comptée, de bois et de calva. La bouche est douce et délicate, les notes de calva sont plus marquées. La finale est légèrement sèche et élégante. Une petite merveille

Maakun (4224) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - AUG 4, 2016
Bottle shared thanks to Clownoisseur for the trade. Clear golden with with a few bubbles. Lots of sweet apples, dry cellar funk, wood, dusty apple skins, light booze, dried apple. Under medium sweet with dusty and mineral bitter finish. Medium bodied with a bit of fizzy carbonation and a bit dry feel. Good stuff.
