Walters & Grapa, Riga.
Hazy peach color, small white head. Apple, sulphur scent. Apple, sweet, fresh, slight acidic taste. Apple, tart aftertaste. So happy that the taste and aftertaste didn’t follow suit after that scent! Fizzy mouthfeel, light tart finish.
Taste and overall experience nice, just that smell was a tad off.
Pours pale yellow, watery with a pinkish hue. wild apple nose, quite stuffed with everything. Taste has some fermented apple juice, autumn and farmhouse barnyard. Not too sweet although sweetness is definitely there. Good one. kermis (15188) - The Hague / Amsterdam / Zaandam, NETHERLANDS - JUL 20, 2017

Bottle shared with JMD at HNB 20.12.16. Clear pale yellow. Almost no lacing. Fine aroma of English cider apples. Similarly fine taste. Tartness balanced by moderate bitterness. Leather and a hint of smoke in aftertaste. Excellent! Holmen1 (6755) - Stavanger, NORWAY - DEC 20, 2016
Flaske fra Holmens importkoffert, direkte fra Riga, og delt med skibsrederen mens vørteren tappes: klar korngul med kort skum. Deilig eplearoma a la engelske ciderepler, og smaken er forførerisk elegant med et pepperkorn eller to helt i slutten. God sommerforfriskning for helårsbruk.

Tap (Brevinga Alus & Viski, Riga)Marduk (8849) - Reval, ESTONIA - JUL 17, 2015
Pale apple juice colour. Sweet fruity aroma, pure apple juice and apple pie. Puckering palate, really tart. Carbonation a bit high, body light. Finishes very tart with apple skins. Once the tartness has gone, like Anna’s parents’ dried apple slices. Damn decent cider.
Tap (Taka Bar, Riga). Clear deep amber color. Small size, white head, stays. Fruity, juicy, fleshy apples in aroma. Delicious aroma. Sour apples in taste. Raw acidic apples in aftertaste. Medium carbonation. Smells better than tastes, but still quite adequate dry cider.
