Hard Cider Gone Bad?

HaagenDazs | Nov 17, 2006 10:13 PM

I've just opened a bottle of 2002 Cidre Bouche Brut de Normandie. It has a bit of a funky smell - not terribly offensive, but it's my first time drinking it so I'm not sure what to look for. It's obviously old - 2002 - and it has the "may contain harmful bacteria" on the label, so I want to be safe, not sorry. Any idea if this could be a bottle possibly gone bad? It almost smells like a corked wine. Is this known to happen? Any help is appreciated!
