Bottle shared at a tasting. Clear pale gold pour. Aroma of apples, mild funk, bretty notes, white wine fruitiness. Taste is tart, citric, very dry. Palate is light with thin carbonation. Nice easy drinking, could definitely go through a few glasses of this. mathieuc (3944) - Québec, Quebec, CANADA - SEP 23, 2014
Bottle shared by tom10101, thanks! Pours a clear yellow with no head. Nose is a bit wild with some recognizable brett/wild yeast. It doesn’t smell of apple much, more like the usual brett leather. Taste is lightly acidic and more close to the traditional hard cider I’m used to but also offers some yeast flavors. Body is light, carbonation is moderate and it is really refreshing. Overall a nice sidra, glad I could finally sample some! tom10101 (6033) - Quebec, CANADA - SEP 22, 2014
Bottle (750 ml). Thanks to Thomas for this one! Slightly hazy pale yellow with a low quickly collapsing white head. Aroma is soft with hay, mild apple presence and light notes of funk. Taste is also mild a little more apples than in the aroma, hay and a little more funk too (still at a very low level though). Light/medium body, but not watery. Almost still. Moderately dry finish. Very easy drinking and a nice - mild - lambic-like character. I would buy this regularly if it was available in my area. Minderbinder (3469) - Québec, Quebec, CANADA - SEP 22, 2014

Refrigerated 375 mL green bottle (says 2012) corked poured into a white wine glass. Pours clear pale golden with no head, little carbonation, and no lacing. Taste is tart, some funk, and some soft dusty apple. GothGargoyle (2587) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUL 19, 2014
Lightly hazy yellow with very little visible carbonation. Aroma is dry apple, apple peel. Reasonably thin bodied, slightly tart apple on the palate, very dry finish. Taste is tart apples, grape skins. rbrazell (1698) - Florida, USA - JUN 2, 2014
Bottled 26/06/12. Graciously given to me by Rick! Hazy light golden with a tiny white head fading to a ring. Super gnarly aroma, barnyard funk, sweat socks, grandmas toes and acidic pear. Very sharp. Flavor up front is herbs, fading into pears, apples, lots of funk then ending with lemongrass and winter mint. Deliciously complex and unlike any cider I’ve ever tasted. jayzz (481) - Illinois, USA - APR 19, 2014
Has an aroma of a freshly cut wheat field on a fall day. A dry cider that is too deliciously unique to describe fully. Yum. GT (10000) - San Diego, California, USA - FEB 21, 2014
> A top level wild, mildly sour cider with smoke and starfruit
[ Bottle ][ Appalachian Vintner Asheville ][ 375mL ][ Rastar Tulip ][ $13 ][ 2/21/14 ]
>> Pours sparkling, cloudy neon green with no foam. Nose is similar to some of the best of the best Norman ciders with starfruit and smoke. Flashes of Brett and wild yeast blend. Really beautiful, about as fresh and complex as cider can be. Taste is extremely light bodied, low acid, starfruit, pineapple, lemonade. Super refreshing. Should be consumed by the liter like a real sidra. Palate is thin, but it is clean and brightly sour so can’t really complain. The best Norman ciders seems to have a one up on this one for palate, but almost identical in aroma and color. Loving it if not for the rarity and price here in the US. Never seen it for sale before in my life until now.
<!> pricey, rare in the US, really low body like limeade
