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.

Bottle poured into a shaker. Ppurs a clear dark gold with lots of little bubbles. Aroma is mostly sweet and tart apples with a hint of toffee and a little vanilla. Taste goes back and forth between heavily sweet and heavily tart. Apples and apples with candi sugar, light vanilla, light oak and a little toffee. Thick and sticky texture with a finish that gets more boozy as it warms. Overall, really good. Ive never had an ice’d cider before but im really digging this style.

A burnished brass hue. On the nose it offers muted, sweet apple fruit. In the mouth it is round and sweet. It is a wonderful flavor. Truly. It has some heat in the finish. But it’s nice Apple pie with a woody touch. It’s a little simple maybe but it makes for a lot of fun.

Pours a clear gold from a bottle, aroma of sweet apples, flavor of sweet/tart apples, looks like apple juice with a slight white head. Good cider.

Dogbrick (9818) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - JUN 23, 2015
This Cider is a clear copper-gold color with a thin white head that evaporates steadily. Short strings of lace. Fresh apples, vanilla and malt in the nose. Full-bodied with semi-tart apples, caramel malt and oaky vanilla flavors. The finish is sweet with a vanilla apple aftertaste. Decent overall.

Stampion (190) - Washington, Washington DC, USA - JUN 7, 2015
Great color, not too complex. Pretty decently balanced. Sweet, not too oaky with some caramel and toffee. You can get a feel of the 10%. Not quite sure it's worth the cost, but very good. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Very delightful and full flavored cider, very sweet and a good alcohol percentage. Intrigued to try the others

This cider is fantastic! Visually it’s one of the most impressive. It pours very golden but retains a lot of its flavor unlike many of the golden looking ciders. Despite it being one of the sweetest ciders I’ve had, it retains a lot of flavor surprisingly :3
