The Clos Normand range of ciders is made in the heart of the Normandy region from the choicest apples grown on trees. This cider owes its rich, full flavor to the quality of the fruit we use as well as to the care we take at each stage of the cider-making process. The result is a subtle alliance of sweet and sour taste, that is the trademark of Clos Normand.

BMan1113VR (7917) - Los Angeles, California, USA - JUL 22, 2008
Pours with a quickly vanishing white head covering a clear, deep golden body. Aroma of overripened apples and vinegar with a bit of caramalized oxidation. Taste like a no alcohol cheap children’s cider (overly sweet and bland). Slightly on the fizzy side.

rudolf (2360) - Buffalo, New York, USA - MAY 5, 2008
Rich gold, no head, lots of visible carbonation. Nose is sweet apple goodness, a little must. Some woody cherriness I can’t quite place. Flavor is a mix of sweet & acidic apple. There is mustiness & undefined (non-apple) fruit juice. High carbonation keeps it light but its still somewhat slippery on my tongue. Odd.

JB175 (1665) - Bucks County, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 2, 2008
Nice golden color with a medium head/ Aroma is appley with some brown sugar sweetness. Sweet apple flavor with some light tanginess and lots of sugar. Pretty good overall and it hit the spot for the mood I was in.

beastiefan2k (3745) - HdG (past: NYC, KS, Rain City), Maryland, USA - MAR 8, 2008
This is way under rated. Pours clear light copper with a small head that after some time dissipates into nothingness. Looks like watered down cognac after a while. Aroma is not overpowering but strong syrup sugar apples. Some apples skins tartness there to set it off. Taste is sweeter apples being used with a short aftertaste is drier "greener" apples. It’s a nice quaff able cider. Very light with a slightly stinging carbonation.

BückDich (5464) - McCall, Idaho, USA - FEB 7, 2008
Bottle: Clear amber color, light head, no lacing. Nose of light candy corn, fructose, apple cider, fresh, not too musty but some wood and dust is there. Nice flavor, semi-sweet, pleasant cider.

IndianaRed (4091) - Boise, Idaho, USA - FEB 4, 2008
Bottle pours a light orange/amber with a short lively head. A bit soda pop-ish I suppose. Aroma is apples, a bit tart and ascidic. Flavor is more like Martinellis than most of the other more dry ciders I have had. The right mix of apple flavor and dry tartness. The fairly low ABV made this more enjoyable to me. Very nice.

jake65 (3462) - Meridian, Idaho, USA - JAN 31, 2008
Bottle: My first rating of a cider, so here goes. Pours a lot like apple juice with an aroma that first struck me as candy corn, then into some butterscotch, and finally the smell of apples. Flavor is sweet and tart apples. Lively carbonated. Enjoyable.

Naka (719) - Indiana, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 28, 2008
Looks like fizzy apple juice. No head. Smells of over-ripe apples with some raisins and oak. Has a good sweet apple flavor with definite raisin and an oak barrel finish. Finishes kind of like a cheap Chardonnay. Decent, and different than a lot of ciders I’ve tried, but nothing too great.

YourDarkLord (1800) - Urbana, Illinois, USA - DEC 27, 2007
Enjoy cider but not this one. A champagne look to it when poured. Aroma was of unripened apples and the tart flavor supported that. I like tart apples but this cider was not pleasant to drink. Some metallic notes in the taste, too. Disappointing.

xnoxhatex (1305) - Grand Rapids/Chicago, Michigan, USA - NOV 27, 2007
Bottle from whole foods on peterson, chicago. Clear, light brown with light carbonation trails. Aroma is sweet apple juice though nothing too exciting. Dry lemon/green apple flavor is most prominent, okay. Medium bodied and lightly carbonated. Okay.
