3.1
omega (900) - NEW ZEALAND - JAN 25, 2014
The most interesting of the five ciders I have tried from this cidery as the oak does come through to give more depth to the product. Lacked freshness, though and came across a bit staid.

3.2
marquisalex (167) - Surrey, ENGLAND - JAN 10, 2014
Bottle, poured into tulip glass. Vibrant gold, no head or lace. Aroma is quite mute - just general cider. Taste is another story - sweet, notes of wood, a little acid. Drying finish. Very tasty.

3.4
danlo (3178) - Darlington, Durham, ENGLAND - NOV 9, 2013
500ml bottle. Golden amber colour, foam white head that diminishes and aroma of apple skin, woody oak. Sweetish fruity apple flavour well balanced with a dry tartish edge and oaky notes. Slightly oily mouthfeel, medium bodied, soft carbonation, clean dry finish. Very drinkable cider.

3.3
suurjuust (3674) - ESTONIA - SEP 5, 2013
Golden orange, white fizzy head. Taste is barnyard, yeast, green apples, wood, tart hints. Very dry finish with apple peel, sulphur hints, tartness. Medium body, oily texture, flat carbonation.

3.3
thirstyrabbit (1849) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - JUL 1, 2013
Bottle. Quite deep golden body that even has a small head. Aroma has lots of baked apples and some soft notes of wood. Full and juicy body with plenty of sweet apples. Taste is more sweet than dry. Finish has medium woodiness and low tartness. A proper cider but I prefer the ones with some more funkiness and dryness.

500ml bottle. Deep amber color. Tiny white head. Apples, fruity aroma. Bit of horse sweat, juicy flavor. Dry mouthfeel. Quite drinkable.
