Default apfelwein has a champagne like taste

Made my first batch of apfelwein, followed the instructions exactly. Left in primary for 2 months. Been in my kegger for 2 months or more. It has been very very good but has a taste that reminds me of champagne. My friends all like it but have said the same thing. Is this normal?

Yep.

Others report it tasting like a very dry bubbly white wine.

And it gets better each month, if you still have any.

I've been hiding 12-packs of the stuff all over the house.

I am hoping to remember where the 18 month old stuff is!
