SinH4 (6265) - Garching b. M�nchen, GERMANY - DEC 14, 2015
Golden orange color with white head that goes down quickly. Aroma is semi-sweet green apples, vanilla, some oak and some funk. Taste is so much apples, rather sweet, but oak flavours including tannins bring in a great balance. Towards the end, a phenolic booze feeling kicks in and the finish is quite stingy-spicy (garlic, indeed?) and with a kick. Calm carbonation. A marvelous cider. Impressive how it can feel so full and sweet without really being sweet.

chrisv10 (18516) - DENMARK - OCT 28, 2015
Bottle, 6.5%. Clear amber with tiny white head. Aroma is apples, fruit, little juice and a little wood. Flavour is apples, fruit, little juice, little wood, sweet, little dry, little gunk and a little citric.

4.3
worldbeertaste (1818) - West Midlands, ENGLAND - OCT 11, 2015
Medium gold with a lasting fizzy head. Nice smell of sour apple balanced against the sour tinge. Sweet initial taste with a lasting sweetness and a lingering viniger. Perfectly balanced. Amazing cider.

3.8
77ships (11051) - Antwerpen, BELGIUM - MAY 30, 2015
500 ml. bottle sampled @ “Kaapse Brouwers 1st Anniversary Beer Festival”. Dark orange. Sweetish apple, light sulfur & apple peel bitterness in the nose but sweet nose dominates. Taste is sulfite, bitter apple peel with plenty of residual sugar, dry, sugar, sweet apple,… Plenty of residual sugar & dry body,… Decent & not bad but I don’t really get the very high style score but that might just be my ignorance of cider.

3.2
StueyD (1586) - Heacham, Norfolk, ENGLAND - APR 21, 2015
A mid amber coloured cider with a weak head. A sweet appley arom, some spice and oak. Medium dry mouthfeel. A honeyed sweet appley taste, some dry woody flavours along with a hint of spice. Draught at The Limes, Fakenham.
