3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 14/20
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 %.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
750ml bottle - thanks Marduk
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.

2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
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.

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.
