750 ml bottle bought @ Systembolaget. Pours clear goldenish orange with a huge fizzy goldenish white head that quickly dissipates without leaving much trace on the glass. Smell is fruity and funky with tart apples, rubber, apple jam, lemon juice, dry soil, wood, barnyard, green grapes and hay. Taste is sweet and fruity with ripe apples, rubber, wood, vanilla, tart pears, barnyard, dry soil and smoked meats. Mouthfeel is round, fruity tart, slightly dry and light to medium bodied. Finish is sweet and tart with ripe apples, lemon zest, rubber, apple jam, dark grapes and wood. Very nice tasty quencher.
Robe or, reflets ambrés. Nez qui explose de notes de pomme compotée sur un fond de fruits secs et de caramel. Bouche à l’attaque ample, riche, puissante, une bulle onctueuse et une longueur impressionnante pour un cidre. Très bel accord sur la tarte. Rasmus40 (21697) - Beder, Aarhus, DENMARK - DEC 22, 2016

Weak off putting aroma, good apple smell, but with an astringent quality, fortunately not very strong. Clear golden color slightly opaque, but not cloudy. Great dry apple flavor, primarily a red apple subtlety with the tartness of a good green apple especially in the aftertaste. Very carbonated, which goes well with the light flavor and body.

750ml bottle, shared by brandon. Clear golden color. Few chunks of yeast in the bottle. Good thin white head on the surface that retains well, leaves loose lace. Good fruity fresh juicy apple aroma. Soft, lighter carbonation, dry finish. Moderate sweet taste, light tart. Has a nice juicy red apple flavor, the kind of apple I prefer. Excellent cider.

750mL c&c 2012 ed. Clear bottle. $25 from P St Whole Foods DC. Cork rockets out of the bottle, CAUTION!! Pours with excessive carbonation, tepid pour yields an IPA like head that really never fully dissipates. Easily the best appearance for any cider I’ve ever seen. Glowing, full haze peach color. Leaves some lacing. Seriously? Nose is really getting there for premier Norman ciders like Ferme du Lavoir, Cave de Mirande, and Benoit et Sylvie Noël. Aroma is pure starfruit and peach juice, similar to peach sour beers. There’s a musty cellar, barnyard note is unmistakeable as Norman farmhouse yeast with touches of orchard Brett. Taste is juicy starfruit, mildly bitter apple skin tannin balance, very dry in the finish. Encompassing, fresh apple skin and flesh engulf the sides and roof of the mouth. Very impressive cider. If very fresh, I have no doubt this cider is in the top leagues of French cider and thus world cider. biggirlpanties (194) - Oceanside, California, USA - OCT 29, 2013
Thanks to GT2! Beer pours with heavy carbonation, head similar to an IPA. There’s little head retention, but that’s to be expected with a cider. Hazy golden-orange color. Aroma is almost like a peach lambic, juicy peaches and fresh flowers, also a little dusty. The taste, wow. It’s pretty dry, which I really enjoy. Taste is peaches, some light citrus, a fresh sweetness but nothing cloying. Again, that dryness really balances it out really well. Absolutely well done.
