argo0 (14012) - Washington DC, USA - AUG 18, 2003
(750ml 2000) Quickly dissipating off-white head leaves a hazy golden liquid with champagne bubbles rising from within. Aroma is apple/pear, wood, sour, light barnyard. Taste is light sweet up top, apple with slight pear, turns apple juice briefly before becoming much more tart, finally finishing green apple. Were it a wine, I would call this semi-sweet. My rating is based on preference much more than style, as my experience in the world of cider is extremely limited.

DSG (13906) - Tel Aviv, ISRAEL - JAN 29, 2009
(11/17/08) Bottle at Birreria Paradiso in Washington DC. 5.0%. Hazy golden color with a big white head that falls immediately. Aroma of sour green apples and some barnyard. Sourish flavor, a bit funky, of green apples and a bit of sweet tones. Mouthfeel might be the most carbonated I’ve ever had. Very tasty stuff.

thewolf (12372) - Kolding, DENMARK - JUN 5, 2008
Bottle, bought @ Vinspecialisten, Kolding Storcenter.
[vintage 2005]
Pours clear golden with a green-yellow hue. When poured, there is a medium, fizzy white head, but it quickly disappears. Instead the stunning amount of fresh bubbles surching towards the top, forming a new, continually regenerating white head. Aroma is great, lots of fresh, green apples as well as a slight funkiness of overripe red apples. High and lively carbonation. Flavour is wonderfully balanced between slight woodiness, heavy fresh apples, light funk and a general good balance. Wonderful.

Draft at Green Lady. REally phenominal normandie cidre, some dustiness, tannic skins, some decent acidity, oxidized but crisp and tart.
