4.7 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 20/20
Pours an exceptionally effervescent and hazy peach amber color. The carbonation and the pour builds a two inch head of fizzy white foam. This leaves a smattering of bubbly lacing that slides back down into the glass. The aroma is bold and full of fresh tart apple.
Mmmm... tart and tangy apple, a little bit spicy. Fresh and juicy flavor. A little bit of white wine like an Asti Spumante is in there too. The finish is sharper and pungeant - not unlike a good saison. Medium body, excellent carbonation. Spice, dried apple slices, and a lemony tartness linger in the aftertaste.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
An unclear orange cider with a fast disappearing light yellow head. The aroma is powerfully of acidic apples, with notes of wood and berries mixing in. The flavor is sweet combined with an acidic apple note, leading to a dry end with notes of wood and apples. The body is a bit thin.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
(Bottle 75 cl) Hazy, pale golden with a white head. Very tart, almost vinegary in the nose. The body is medium with sweet apple flavours. Again this odd composition of a tart aroma and a sweet flavour. But nice indeed. 151206

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
UPDATED: DEC 15, 2006 Nice cider with a slight hazy gold-bronze color and with a fine livelyness. Aroma is very much barnyard like, it has a smooth sweetness in the nose with little hints of cane sugar, cinnamon, cardemom and sweet, slight oxidized apples. The taste is fruity, smooth and complex. It is fine-fizzy in the mouth, and the honeyed sweetness works well with the soft sourness of the apples and the soft spice of the nutmeg like spiceyness.
Thanks a lot Alex (Fiulijn) for sending me this one. The traject was Switserland to Italy, from Italy to Sweden, then Sweden Denmark, and from Denmark with Jeppe to Belgium.

2004 bottle in late 2006. Hazy gold, visible carbonation. Nose is tart apple, musty air, a bit of oak, maybe a hint of strawberry. Flavor is tart apple, some sweetness, oak. Bitter, almost astingent notes. Wonderful effervescent dry apple finish. Becomes much sweeter when paired with spicy foods.

2005 bottle - tart and medicinal, slightly chemical but it’s a natural chemical smell not a manufactured scent. apple and pear and must - not so sour but clearly not sweet. effervescent and light; exciting to taste and drink despite its $10 pricetag. apples CAN make good alcohol!

4.1 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
2004. Light hay body, sightly hazy and a very small white head that clings to the glass. Nose is heavy horseblanket, straw, cobwebs, light cheese and lots of lactic acid. Flavor is apple juice, pears, lemon, just a touch of acidity and moderate sweetness. The mouthfeel is light and lively with bright acidity on the finish. Lovely stuff.

3.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours a hazy yellow with a medium white head that quickly fades. The aroma is of apples and decomposing vegitation/ripening cheese. In the mouth, it’s very dry, with a subtle apple flavor and again a hint of funkiness. Good, though drier than I prefer.
