COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Introducing Lapinette, a Norman-style cidre brut, aged in French oak barrels. Reminiscent of the old days in France, before the great wars, when wine makers of the south shared their used barrels with their northern cousins, the resulting ciders were a little bit rough, unfiltered with a balance of flavors from the fruit, the farm and the barrel. Virtue has recreated this traditional cider by sourcing tart fruit, patiently aging for months in wine barrels, and serving as is, without fine filtration. Lapinette is a window into our past, a very tasty time indeed.

The flavor was dryish and sour with champagne and apple flesh notes. Medium length finish. Light body. Ok.

_angst_ (5008) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - DEC 6, 2015
Draught @ CBC 2015. Pours very tiny hazy greenish golden with no head worth mentioning. Smell is fruity with mixed sweet and sour apples, dry soil, minerals, paper and lemon peal. Taste is sour and fruity. Mouthfeel is crisp, dry, tart and light bodied. Finish is sour with tart apples, hay, dry soil, minerals, paper and lemon peal. Decent cider but a bit too dry, bit too papery and very lacking in fruitiness except tart apples.
