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.

This was poured into a pint glass and a wine glass. The appearance was the same in both: cloudy copper color with a slight transparency about it. Bubbly carbonation is seen rising. The smell has a deep sweet apple aroma pacing abroad a delicate caramel sweetness coming in and out. The taste was sweet through a combination of apples and caramel. On the palate, this one happens to sit at a medium on the body with a decent sessionability about it. The caramel that is in this helps to smooth things out to make this a decent offering all around. Overall, definitely one of the better ciders by Angry Orchard, but still the price doesn’t really fit my budget. I probably wouldn’t seek again.

Bottle at home with my dad. Pour is clear caramel with a small white head that quickly dissipated. Caramelly, slightly funky, dessert wine, stone fruits, and light vanilla in the aroma. Taste is sweet apples, pears, juicy fruit, vanilla, and light oak with a sweet dry finish. Slick mouthfeel with high carboantion. Semi-sweet, yet dry. Decent stuff, but definitely a dessert drink.

750ml bottle pours a clear orange with zero head. Nose has apples... apple juice... and not much else. Flavor has apples... and apple juice... and not much else. Not much happening.

smaynard6000 (625) - 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.

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.

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.
