Vintage 2013, 6.5% ABV, bottle n. 2539mcberko (18583) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JAN 6, 2016
Skewed Refractometer Reading: 8°B
Light dull amber color. The apple aroma is quite nice, with a touch of hazelnuts. Light apple flavor, but also too dry to really appreciate, moderately sour; the final is short and weak.
2013 vintage. 750mL bottle, pours a clear golden with a few bubbles of head. Aroma brings out notes of champagne yeast and bone dry apples. Flavour is very complex, with bone dry apples with only a hint of residual sweetness, lots of champagne yeast, and almost a touch of rustic funk quality. Superbly balanced and highly drinkable. Excellent.

Bottle - Sweet fleshy apple. Clear gold with a small head. Light sweet fleshy apple and a light finish. Very light and a bit too much fleshy apple. Minderbinder (3469) - Québec, Quebec, CANADA - JUN 8, 2015
Pours crystalline silverish blond with no head. Some legs. Aroma is of apples, fruits. Taste is of apples, fruits, some slight acidity. Palate: Light body. Somewhat dry. Overall: Quite good. Simple. Just a tad acid? Not very complex. tom10101 (6227) - Quebec, CANADA - MAY 30, 2015

Appearance: Clear pale yellow with pinkinsh hues and a small bubbly and quickly disappearing ring of white foam.
Aroma: Quite floral with mild geneva apples and a light sweetness impression.
Taste: Not much sweetness, mild tartness, geneva apples, floral notes and CO².
Palate: Light to medium body. Medium carbonation. Dry finish.
Overall: It’s easy drinking and quenching. I was expecting a bit more tartness from the geneva apples which I think would have made this one quite a bit more refreshing and enjoyable but it’s a good rosé nonetheless.
UPDATED: JUN 9, 2015 Pours a slightly pink yellow with some nice bubbles. Nose is of straight pommettes juice. Taste is lightly tart and basically just some fresh crabapples juice. Body is light to medium and carbonation medium to high. Overall a fair sparkling cider, I could see myself sharing that with people over the course of summer! czar (9338) - Québec, Quebec, CANADA - MAY 29, 2015
