3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
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.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
750mL bottle at Schilling, pours a fairly clear golden blonde with a small white head. Nose brings out a complex mix of syrup, barnyard notes and a touch of funk. Flavour isn’t as sweet, with some light farmhouse notes, light sweetness and oak. Complex and well-rounded. Really nice stuff, especially for the price point.

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

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
750 from ? I think Beer Geek. Pours amber gold with a fluffy white head. Near medium body with mild carbonation. Flavor is apple skin, cooked apple, pear, light yeast, and something like over-ripe fruit. It has substance and character. Much more so than common commercial ciders. It has a cooked character, but truthfully that’s an improvement over most ciders. In a very mild way it’s like baked cinnamon apple. Really nice drink.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
750 cc bottle from Wegman’s shared at Craft Ale Tuesday Beer Share. This one gushed hard. Poured clear light gold with minimal head after the gush, some large carb bubbles. Nose was funky yeasty earthy apple, tart lactose. Tasted rich, complex, not quite as rrich as the great eisciders, but with a gigantic complexity; funky yeasty earthy apple, tartness, and a crisp finish. Even world class beer connoisseurs were blown away by this one.
