3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Colour: Bright clear golden, small fluffy head.
Bottled, 500ml ***
Nose: Sour apples, citrus, mild oak. ***
Mouthfeel: Medium body, hardly watery. Moderate carbonation. ***
Taste: Strong sour-sweet apples at the start, with explicit vinegar notes. The latter are dominant in the middle, the finish is rather dry, but smooth. Aftertaste is sweet & sour again, and long. ***
Impressions: Really fruity and refreshing cider, nice body and mouthfeel. The monicker "apple-sweet" is a bit misleading considering the pronounced vinegar. Doesn’t make your mouth dry after consumption, unlike many mass-produced ciders. Well done.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
500ml bottle (Kelm, Tallinn)
Bright orange, clear. Lovely cider aroma, of apples and woody notes. Almost a dry taste, plenty of sharp spiky esters and more - not so sweet. Later some almost yeasty hints, just as I expect from a dry cider. However, it’s not lacking sugars there’s a lovely toffee sweetness in the body and in the late finish too, where it’s accompanied by pure fresh apples. Love the weird dry aspects, sends a shiver down my spine on at least half of my swallows, and that I like.
