750ml shared with a friend who likes cider. Pours orange with a bright white ring. Nose is very sweet with a hint of yeast consistent with a champagne like quality. Taste is very nice with lots of apples, though its a bit thin. Overall not bad. MiP (15972) - Sønderborg, DENMARK - SEP 21, 2008
Bottle, 4% as Clos Normand Herb. Old apple aroma with a hint of vomit. Pale yellow colour. The flavour is medium-sweet with a slight taste of apple. Not acidic enough. Cardboard aftertaste. GTIN: 3192200 000670 Acknud (1082) - Morganfield, Kentucky, USA - AUG 5, 2008
Under-rated. Golden pour with head like champagne. Aroma is crisp of apples. Taste is sweet and sharp in nature with a nice apple bite. Nice cider. yespr (47545) - Copenhagen O, DENMARK - JUL 28, 2008
75 cL bottle, bought in a German supermarket (Ullrich Hit, Mohrenstr, Berlin) as Clos Normand Herb, 4%, produced at the Le Theil-sur-Huisne facility. Pours clear and golden orange with a fizzy white head. Sulphorish dry apple aroma. Flavour follows this closely with a mix of sulphor and apple, quite dry. Ends mild acidic and dry. Pleasant and flavourful Normandic cider. Goes well with salmon. BMan1113VR (7929) - 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.

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 (4082) - 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 (5477) - McCall, Idaho, USA - FEB 7, 2008
Cork&cage 750mL green bottle, Duvel larger tulip glass.
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 (5031) - 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.
