COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Astrakan Flaskjäst Äppelcider är tillverkad av äppelsorterna Belle de Boskoop 50% Ribston 25% och Cox Orange 25% från skörden 2004. Cidern har fått sin andra jäsning på flaska. Efter att ha legat på sin jästfällning fram till degorgeringen den 26 mars 2013, tillsattes en blandning av must från Belle de Boskoop och Cox Orange skördad 2012 för att ge årets version mer rondör. Astrakan Flaskjäst har en torr karaktär med doft och smak av svenska äpplen. Innehåller 100% äpple.

Bottle at the "Colin and the Vikings tasting, Goteborg". Poured a clear light pear colour with lots of bubbles and bubbly white head. The aroma is er.... apples. The flavour is alcoholic apples....with an apple palate! Light bodied with fizzy carbonation. It’s all apples!

How: Bottle.
Where: Systembolaget.
Appearance: Pale yellow colour with a white head.
Aroma: Dry apple.
Body: Medium body with a nice carbonation.
Flavour: Dry apple.
Comment: A really nice aged cider. Very dry, suitable as a champagne substitute before dinner drink. A bit pricey, but well worth it if you consider it as a wine substitute.

ekstedt (7007) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - SEP 13, 2013
Bottle (75 cl) from Systembolaget. Clear pale golden, medium white head. Pretty thin and bland apple aroma, some alcohol notes. Light to medium bodied, heavy carbonation. Dry, low acidity. Quite boring.

Snygg och stilren etikett. Får direkt känslan av kvalitet. Flaskjäst helt utan fällning. Elegant! Livlig skumkrona initialt. Bra tryck i flaskan men skummar ej över. Frisk doft av äpplen och visst inslag av bokna äpplen. Kort stund doft av champange som sedan avtar. Riktigt härlig. "bäst före" famgår ej men gissar att den här kan nå magiska nivåer med några år i källare. Kostade en lite slant men helt klart värt. Alkoholen känns inte. Men ingen här, inkl migsjälv, förstår varför det står ASTRAKAN på etiketten. Är inte det en äppelsort? Den sorten är ju inte i den här cidern. Fågan förblir obesvarad....
