This event is dedicated to cider, cidre, sidra or how ever you would like to call a beverage prepared by fermentation of apple juice. The fallowing description is for Cidre Flows run by Algoldor.

Ideology&Selection The aim of this event is both to educate people about this product in a nice and friendly social environment. I try to provide a high quality selection focusing on a really special samples, still I do like to include few "standard quality" samples for comparison (however they may be avoided depending on the event requirements). At the core of the tasting are French ciders, especially the Normandie region and partly Bretagne. Concerning geography we try to have at least sample or two from Spain, England, Czech Republic, Germany and other countries, depending what interesting samples I find. From the point of view of style of production we have the most complicated "natural ciders" made from cider apples, they are mostly bio/organic, nothing added, not filtered, most of them secondary fermented in bottle (prise de mousse naturelle). That would be the high end. Other ones are prepared with use of filtration, carbonation, pasteurization, made from eating apples and son on, each sample has unique history. I do like to include one or two poirés (perry) into the selection, it happens quite often that it is the first poiré which people had in their life. Also it is custom for me now to have some cider related products like pommeau, calvados or vinegar.

Style This is a guided tasting. First I talk a bit about history and basic facts about cider. After that I explain how to evaluate the product properly. This means the colour, proper manner of aroma evaluation and tasting. We used proper "closed" glasses by the way. Concerning the products we start with the extra-bruts and we go in the direction of increasing sweetness towards bruts, demi-secs and douce. By the end we taste some special cider related products. I do my best to post info about ciders which we taste, so you can more easily find the product which you liked.

Most Frequent Candidates Here you can find some tips, ciders which I either liked or I still do introduce at my tastings. Not all of them are always "on" but several of them are core members of the tasting. It changes of course with time to reflect the seasonality and the specificity of the product.
