eczematic (1326) - Adelaide, AUSTRALIA - APR 5, 2008
Very tasty rustic still cider, far superior to the other stuff that comes in little green bottles from this cidrery. Plenty of wildness (brett?) in aroma, plus overripe apples and oak, bit of fusels, but you’re supposed to have them in cider aren’t you. long on palate thanks to nice tartness and woody flavour. a bit earthy/mushroomy which is interesting... not bad for $8/750ml (from the spanish bottleo in glebe pt rd).

Rerate: 750ml bottle sample (Black Door, Helsinki) (7:4:6:3:12=3.2)
Like the haziness. Lovely aged aroma, woody hints. Sharp sour bite, sends a shiver down my spine. A little yeasty, but not muddy. Mustiness still there. Quirky and interesting. Anna doesn’t like it so much, it’s too vinegary in the finish for her. She’s on drugs.
