Golden yellow, ring of bubbles, highly carboanted. Full of cork, borderline corked, green apples, somewhat oxidized. Flavor much the same, cork takes over everything, not much else. Tad too carbonated. FatPhil (16102) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - JUL 9, 2010

SImple fruity apple aroma, a touch sweet, but with some drier woody notes too. Crisp carbonation, flavoursome in the mouth, plenty of fruity esters in the retronasals. And as a whole, the taste is very fruity, and pleasantly sweet to go with that. Lip-smacking dry finish. Another classic French cider, extremely drinkable.
Bottle. Thanks.... John.... Pours a hazy yellow with a white head. Aroma, vinegar, apples. Flavor, apples, acidic, almost sour, vinegar notes, a slight sweetness. This wasn’t very good. Rogueone (506) - I F&ckin’ hate those guys from, Ohio, USA - MAY 21, 2008
Thanks? nolankowal for sharing: Pours a light, effervescent yellow. Fizzy. Earthy aroma of spice and tartness. Smell is pungent enough to taste. Tastes like tongue-suppressed apples. Dry and chalky finish. Umm... Peregrinari (148) - Washington, Washington DC, USA - FEB 24, 2008
Band aid. If you love to suck on dirty band aids, this cider is for you! Yuck! Thanks Argo for putting the thought in my head of what that tasted like. Ugh, it really does taste like dirty bandaids smell.

Employee Tasting Notes (Belmont Station)--This 5% ABV cider seemed to gather the consensus that it was rather uninteresting. Chris even noted a slight medicinal "band-aid" finish that others agreed on. I thought it was decent, but really nothing to write home about. SledgeJr (3577) - Omaha, Nebraska, USA - JUL 29, 2007
in 750 mL bottle from Beertopia. pours gold with a big white head that at first is sufficient but quickly dies. very high carbonation. the aroma is of mop n glo floor polish. it still has a significant amount of sweetness to the apple flavor and is not very dry at all. the palate is tingly. it has a slight aldehyde esterous flavor. the beer is very bubbly and gaseous, even in your belly. kitschy (326) - Nebraska, USA - JUL 29, 2007
in bottle. smells like a band-aid. yellow/gold color, fizzy head that dissipates quickly. lands in the not-as-sweet side of apple ciders, with a wild yeast kind of taste on the side. Not sure it would be pleasant to drink more than a glass of such a gas-y beer... tiggmtl (4545) - East York, Ontario, CANADA - SEP 14, 2006
Sulfury browned apples in earth with leafy, woody notes and some sweetness apparent in the aroma. Very clear though somewhat viscous yellow gold coloured body topped by a fizzy white head. Sulfur and earthy sensations carry through to the fairly dry, tart and bitter appleskin flavour that is perhaps a bit of a walk on the wild side. Dry, medium body with moderate to strong carbonation. Sampled at Mondial 2006.
