A golden ice cider with aroma of sweet fruity apple sauce and light roasted notes, light celery salts, interesting. In mouth, a superb mix of sweet acidity, apple jam, light tropical fruits, very nice and complex. Well done. Bottle at Vermont Cheese Fest 2015.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Tiny bottle at Franks. Most of us took a swig of this on our way out the door. Golden color with not much head or lace. A little overly sugar apple forward with too much of a skin bite. Still enjoy most ice ciders but this was a little unbalanced.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
2014-04-15. Crisp golden yellow body, headless, syrupy legs on the glass. 3++ Aroma is sweet, syrupy with a twig like apple stem and seed note, fruity apple. 7++ Flavour is quite sweet, fruity apple core, mild acidity in the finish keeps the it from becoming cloying but the sugary apple sweetness comes back in the aftertaste leaving sweet apple juice and apple sauce like flavours in the mouth. Notes of apple skins and tannins in the background grow as it warms up. Syrupy smooth medium to full bodied palate is uncarbonated. Not super complex but richly sweet and pretty tasty. Tiny bottle purchased in May 2013 from East Shore Vineyards, Burlington, VT

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Tiny bottle, awwwww! Deep golden colour. Aroma is sweet apple juice, slightly oxidized. Sweet cooked apple flavour, very sticky, but lacking further depth of character. Unpleasant chemical-tannic note in the finish.
