COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Cider House Collection #2: Inspired by the tradition of Ice Ciders in Quebec, Canada, Iceman uses the process of freezing the juice from culinary and bittersweet apples to produce a rich, complex and unique cider with a crisp apple taste and notes of caramel and toffee. This cider is sweet but not cloying. The addition of oak-aging yields a smooth and pleasing vanilla character. The result is a perfectly balanced, full-flavored cider that delights the palate with clean apple notes and a lingering toffee finish.

smaynard6000 (605) - Apopka, Florida, USA - JUN 27, 2014
750ml bottle. Pours a deep golden, almost orange color. Strong aroma of fermented apple. Flavor is heavy- strong apple flavor along with a bit of vanilla in the finish and a touch of caramel. This is heavy on the palate, it feels thick as it comes across the tongue. Unique.

alexanderj (3298) - Gilbert, Arizona, USA - MAY 10, 2014
Bottle; poured a clear gold color with a small white head. Aroma of Apple, ice wine, booze, hint of wood. Strong flavor; not hot,but boozy. Not worth the price tag. Bittersweet Apple, alcohol, wood and toffee.

stevencon (420) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - MAY 9, 2014
Clear light gold some bubbles. Apple and white wine aroma. Hints of alcohol can be detected. Sweet apple with boozey finish. Carbonation adds some harshness. Tastes just like a boozier plain cider.

S_Side_Smitty (433) - Lakeland, Florida, USA - APR 28, 2014
Pours deep gold with a minimal white head. Aroma is fermented apples and faint sweet tobacco. Taste is sweet aplle juice with just a little bitter apple skin. Easy to drink, but not overly complex.

zizzybalubba (1391) - Elizabeth City, North Carolina, USA - APR 26, 2014
750 mL bottle from SoHo Organic Market, Elizabeth City, NC. Dark orange pour with plenty in the way of carbonation but nothing that resembles any head. Aroma of apples and faint oak. The taste combines sweet red and tart green apple flavor with light caramel and toffee for added sweetness and hint of oak for depth and character. Dangerously drinkable as no hint of the ABV is present. Quite pleased.

nealblind (689) - Seattle, Alabama, USA - APR 19, 2014
Clear gold pour. Tangy apple aroma, some sulfur. Very tart granny apple flavor punch in the face. Sweet and sour. Alcohol noticeable.

BadAprilia1000 (240) - Sevierville, Tennessee, USA - MAR 31, 2014
Pours a golden apple juice color which is very clear and with no head though very carbonated. Aroma is caramel, apple, toffee, white wine. Taste is surprisingly sweet to the aroma, notes of apple, maple syrup, caramel, toffee, vanilla. This is extremely palatable, not dry or sweet but the in between that makes you go back for more. Definitely more of a body to this than other ciders I’ve had. Overall, great drink, especially for 10%.

unclemattie (4133) - Georgia, USA - MAR 11, 2014
750ml, corked. Blue label. Dark amber color. Aroma of tart fruit, apples, smells like concentrated apple juice. Whoa, very strong. High acidity. A little too strong to draw out any flavors besides apples. Solid & rich body. A bit too rich and thick for me to enjoy, well worth the tick. (3996)

Slubgob (182) - West Hartford, USA - MAR 9, 2014
Very light carbonation. Golden in glass, very clear. Nose of apple (surprise!), some light cinnamon. In the mouth concentrated Apple flavor,a but thick, vanilla, finishes with some tannin. Somewhere between a cider and desert wine
