Fairly light-bodied semi-dry cider with an acidic edge and pleasant lingering notes of pear, lively carbonation. Pretty refreshing and tasty stuff, good for a change from the classic Bretagne style. rosenbergh (11532) - Tampere, FINLAND - APR 3, 2014

Yellow colour, small white head. Aroma is apples, some sugar, nectar and mild earthy notes. Flavour is sweet and quite thin apple and some earthiness too. Not all too elegant.

Aroma has sweetish apples and leathery notes. Flavour is sweet with pear, some leathery apples and fruit sugar. Aroma was nice but flavour is just too sweet.
Bottle, pours a nice bubbly yellow with a nice head, aroma is mostly apples and so is taste but finishes with a bit a thick tart taste, assume from pear, overall nice cide GoufCustom (1998) - HONG KONG - JUL 20, 2013

750 ml cork bottle bought at Park N Shop Superstore in Fanling.
Light golden yellow colour; One finger head and soapy white foam which fades in 30 seconds; Minimal lacing with very fizzy carbonation; Dry, tart and woody aroma of light apple fresh, apple juice and sparkling white wine; Dry tartnessness can be smelt a feet away; Light sweet and tart taste of dry white wine, apple, apple juice, wood, strong tannic, soda, and fainr notes of pears; Light body, watery and tart palate; Mouth feel is tart, moderately dry white wine with apple juice in light woody background. Pear taste is nearly undetectable. Very carbonated soda feel; Booze is even lighter the Doux, doesn’t contribute much to the overall picture; Pretty dry after taste, easy and tart to mouth.
Comments: Dryness and tartness should have been the main forte here, but they are not that strong for a dry cider, plus it’s way too watery and carbonated, pear taste is near zero, and apple taste is not fresh enough to be inspiring. More like having an apple soda. This is not good. I’ll stick with the “Doux” instead.
Bottle. Pours a hazy yellow color with a white head. Has a fruity fresh pear aroma. Slightly sweetish dry ad slightly tart pear flavor. Has a fruity dry pear finish. KyotoLefty (10254) - Kyoto, JAPAN - JUN 17, 2012
Bottle from Liquor Mountain in Gion. Nice tart apple nose, some acid, can’t really get pears, but crisp and fruity. Medium gold, clear, with lace and lots of bubbles. Crisp apple flavor, somewhat tart, a bit dusty. Dry dusty finish. Very likeable, moving from full fruit to dryness. Not super complex but likeable. One of the better cidres I have found in Japan. fiulijn (20491) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUN 4, 2012
Blond color, no head. Mild aroma of apple skins with light vinegar. Dry mouthfeel, some apple flavor, light tartness and very light astringency. Easy.
