2 oz sample from bottle (200 ml) bought @ Cidrerie Cryo.

Appearance: Clear deep golden-orange with sticky legs.

Aroma: Caramelized apples, toffee, alcohol, cinnamon, toffee, honey and hints of ginger.

Taste: Quite sweet and a bit boozy. Caramelized apples, alcohol, toffee, light acidity, cinnamon notes and hints of honey.

Palate: Full body. Thick, chewy and syrupy mouthfeel. Warming finish. Mild spicy aftertaste. Lingering caramelized apples sweetness.

Overall: My favorite Cryo ice cider so far. It’s more complex than Cryo de Glace and Tête de Cuvée, but like the two others it could use a bit of rounding on the edges as it’s a tad too boozy to be among the best of the style. I would love to try the - extremely limited - oak aged version of this one as I’m pretty sure it gives some spectacular results. Very tasty.

August 16, 2011 - 200ml bottle from glouglouburp shared with MesandSim, harrisoni, ndon, madmitch. Not quite as good as the regular cryo, but helldamn, very good for all that! Overripe apple (not oxidized, just ... tangy) - acidic, alcohol - taste follows, a little blush sweetish wine in the mix - slick, not too sweet, solid acidic finish, well-balanced - in the upper range of ice ciders.

Bottle thanks to HogTownHarry. This was amazing! Still dont really get it, but wow it tasted good. Pours thick orange. Smells quite boozy, but is so smooth. brandy apple is the best way i can describe it.

A Mes rate. Bottle thanks a million to HogTownHarry.
My god. This is ridiculously good. I always struggle to rate ice ciders. They’re all sweet, full bodied and adorable. This excells at all three. The aroma is best described in one word. DEEP. The flavour is ecstatic. Phenominally sweet but not at all cloying. Very slight sherbetty fling in the middle gives way to an amazing slap in the face of kiwi, strawberry and some late late apricot. All killed to death by Guatemalan insanity apples. My god. Stupendously good stuff.

JAXSON (535) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 16, 2011
2008 bottle, thanks Fred! Pours a clear copper with pink/red edges, looks a lot darker than most apple ice wine. Nose is really rich and complex, with this baked caramel apple, cloves, pear, honey. Texture is fairly thin. Flavor is quite sweet with a great baked apple quality, caramel. Very focused and not overly hot. Awesome.
