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.

FunkyBrewster (1518) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JAN 12, 2013
Draft. Pours a light hazy pale yellow with a small white head. Aroma is clean and light sour apple, very woody and earthy. Flavor has extremely dry, a bit white wine like without the sweetness, very woody and earthy again, light in character and in mouthfeel. Interesting cider, you can really taste the dryness from the wood.
