Sample. Pours copper with no head. Some legs. Aroma is of tart apples, fruits, flowers. Taste is of apples, sugar, tartness, spices. Palate: Full bodied. No carbonation. Sticky. Nice balance. Almost drinkable, strangely enough. Overall: Very nice.

JulienHuxley (5463) - Trois-Rivières, Quebec, CANADA - JUN 29, 2015
Sample. Deep copper pour. Aroma is super rich, decadent warm apple pie, tons of cinnamon, nutmeg, rich baked apple, light caramel. Taste is sweet, toasty, maillard flavors, baked apple, caramel, long lingering spicy finish, nice cinnamon/alcohol warmth. Palate is mouth coating, full bodied. Really nice ice cider, will look out for this one again.

Thanks to tom10101 for this one! Pours a clear dark golden and leaves some nice legs. Nose is of ripe and sugary apples, cinnamon and nutmeg. Taste is of apples, brown sugar and nutmeg. Never cloying, never hot, really nice! Body is medium and not too sticky. Some alcohol but like I said never hot. Awesome, really!

Bottle @ RBBSG, 2014. Thanks 77ships! Orange colour. Very sweet aroma of apple pie, cinnamon, brown sugar and spices. Very complex and sweet in a positive way. Good as a sipper, not to drink a lot of this.

sebletitje (8789) - Enghien, BELGIUM - JUL 6, 2014
Bouteille 37.5cl @ RBBSG III, courtesy of 77ships. Ambré, doré au verre. Arôme de pomme, tanin rétro agréable présentant de belles effluves épicées de cannelle. Palais est liquoreux, plein de pomme léger doux-sucré sur une pointe aigrelette avec un léger caramélisé de pelure de pomme et chaire. Le côté épicé hivernal est bien placé et vient balancer le tout avec ce petit ’twist’ de cannelle.
