The cider is a medium to deep amber. Good clarity. Flat. The aroma has a full apple flavor. Caramel and juicy fruitiness. A bit woody. Vanilla. A little bit of spice, like a mild cinnamon. Big, full, complex sweetness in the taste. Caramel, brown sugar. Deep, rich sweetness. Very interesting. Full mouthfeel. Mild bitterness. Some woodsy edge to it. It’s sorta sticky but the flavors work with it well.

Corked bottle, tasting at Matt’s, vintage 2005, L060807
Dark amber color. Infinite fruitiness permeates the aroma. Very sweet, yet agile, sour to the right level, astringent in the final.
No matter what, La Face Cachée de la Pomme always has the best.

Ferris (8104) - Burnaby, British Columbia, CANADA - JAN 29, 2015
Bottle - Dark rich caramel, almost light charred barrel and over ripe apple. Clear copper. Caramel apple and hints of toasted wood. Very little if any acidity or tartness, just a warm wonderful sweet viscous liquid. Very enjoyable.

mcberko (9732) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JAN 29, 2015
375mL bottle, pours a hazy dark amber orange with a few white bubbles as head. Aroma is complex as hell, with loads of caramelized apples and medium sweetness. Flavour is complex, with loads of rich caramelized apples, toffee, and medium sweetness. Elegant, sweet and complex – an ice cider of the usual luxuriousness of Le Face Cachee de la Pomme. Amazing.

Bottle (375 ml). Deep golden/caramel color with light legs. Aroma is of juicy overcooked apples along caramel, light sweetness and a touch of acidity. Taste is sweet (but not cloying) with caramelized apples, brown sugar, molasses and moderate acidic presence. Full bodied. Liquorous. Warming finish. Well executed and well preserved. Decent complexity. Good balance. Another fantastic product from La Face Cachée de la Pomme!

Bottle shared at a tasting. Flat gold pour. Aroma of caramelized apples, slightly musty apple aroma, woodsy and spicy aromas. Taste is sweet, really decadent, rich liquory apple flavors. Palate is mouth coating and slightly warming, very enjoyable.

Bottle shared by tom10101, thanks a lot! Pours a clear copper and completely still. Aromas of cooked apples and brown sugar greet you. Taste is also of sweet apples and lightly spiced. Acidity level is low but there is still a little preventing that this becomes a sweet mess. Body was medium and mouthfeel liquorous. Overall a nice one, I just don’t know how to rate these.
