Bottled (from Alko Kivihaka, Vaasa). Golden colour, with a quite rich carbonation. Small head that vanishes quite fast. Aroma is yeast, cheese, apples, mild sweetness and toffee as well. Flavour is apples, vanilla, some fresh sappy notes as well as mild toffee. Pleasant, although a bit thin palate for being 5 %. FatPhil (16953) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - MAR 20, 2015
750ml bottle - thanks Mardukrosenbergh (11760) - Tampere, FINLAND - JUN 9, 2013
Simple apple aroma, dried apple slices. Ditto taste, drying, but crisp. Simple cidre. Preferred the 2%, but this would be good with salmon or chicken.

Aroma has leathery notes and slightly floury apples. Flavour is rather leathery and somewhat dry with apples and some mild earthy notes. Nice, I like the leathery notes here.
750ml bottle. Clear amber color. Small size, bubbly head, stays. Juicy apples dominate in aroma. Juicy, apples, metallic taste. Thin. Metallic apples in aftertaste. Bit watery. lusikka (7819) - Tampere, FINLAND - MAY 17, 2013

Pours a clear pale yellow colour with a small white head. Aroma of fresh green apples, honey and some grass. Flavour of strong, slightly tart fresh green apples, grass, some hay and wood. Light bodied, dry mouthfeel and a sharp, tart, apple finish. Good.
Bottle from Mitra Bunnik, large sample. Clear golden color, large rocky head quickly bubbling away to a short frothy head. Aroma of mashed apples, some cooked veggies, bit wort like almost, apple syrup, bit molasses, sugar. Quite sweet in taste, although it mentions being cidre brut instead of cidre doux, apply, mashed apples (appelmoes). Didnt really like this one. McTapps (6966) - Reutlingen, GERMANY - JUN 17, 2013
Delicious cider which comes in a big bottle. It has got a clear ligth golden colour with low head and medium body. Delicious nose of fresh, ripe apples. Taste of light sour red apples, caramel, grass and peaches. Easy and nice to drink, really quaffable and refreshing. Enjoyed it a lot. MichaelAwesome (6545) - Wanne-Eickel, GERMANY - JUN 16, 2013
A nice cider which is not brut. Bit sweetish with some sugar and apples in the aroma. Drinkable, easy to go - just a simple, nice cider.
