Palme (4433) - Bergen, NORWAY - AUG 10, 2016
0.75l bottle (as 2014 version). No real head on this one, just a foamy heady dot floating in the middle of the glass. The cider is as good as clear and pale golden in the glass. Smells quite decent with a nice fruity apple presence, mild earthy dust and a little bit of pear and peach. Decent not too sweet and somewhat inviting for a cider. It has a mild oily texture and its about average on the bubbles. Tastes a bit, ehm how to say, raw? I get a little bit to much of the yeasty booziness? Not that its strong or anything. Really earthy, almost "sementy" dryness in the taste. Old red mealy apples that has been dried a tad too long in the cellar. Hints of marzipan in the tail. Not completely mine thing this, but it smells quite good. 02.09.2015

23.07.2016, 0,75l bottle (2014 vintage) @ home:
Small fizzy shortlasting head. Aroma is slightly dry sour-ish fruity, apple cores, sorrel, dry apples, grass, apple peel, fruit stones, hints of caramel. Taste is slightly sour-ish dry, apple cores, grass, minerals, apple peel, sorrel, dry apples, hay, hints of alcohol. Medium bitterness, slightly sour-ish dry mouthfeel. Fair enough.

Ungstrup (36234) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - DEC 1, 2015
Bottled. A hazy yellow cider with a white head. The aroma has notes of over ripe apples and vinegar. The flavor is acidic with notes of apples and vinegar, leading to a tart finish.

yespr (42680) - Copenhagen O, DENMARK - DEC 1, 2015
75 cl bottle. Pours clear and pale yellow with a small white head. Aroma is zesty, citrusy and crisp apple juicy. Crisp zesty and lingering fruity, yet dry.

ClubGonzo (5609) - Bergen, NORWAY - AUG 30, 2013
Bottle. Pours a pale yellow body with loads of surfacing bubbles, making a pretty hectic appearance. Nose is wood, sulfur, apple juice, alcohol and hints of muscat grapes. Taste is mild apple juice and dry wooden notes, with hints of alcohol and sulfur. Fizzy carbonation, medium to dry mouthfeel and body. Not the worst of ciders, but somewhat boring and lacking in both aroma and flavor.

750 ml clear bottle, vintage 2011, from Vinmonopolet. ABV is 7.5%. Very pale straw colour, pours medium sparkling with a white head that soon subsides. Aroma of Gravenstein apples (once Norways most beloved eating apple variety), also notes of farmhouse and sulphur. The flavour is medium sweet with some rough sulphurous notes, and a surprisingly bitter finish.
