4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Bottle @ Mondial des Cidres de Glace 2015. Reddish, rose colored cider. Initial aroma has some tea and perhaps cranberry? Lightly woody, lots of sweet apple, plum, and some vanilla. There’s a really nice acidity to this. Great apple and berry-like acidity. A touch of vanilla, some caramel, flowers, and cranberry. Solid.

Bottle thanks to Kbudd! Nose is sweet and apple. Taste is like apple juice with just a hint of sweetness and alcohol. This is my first iced cider and its dangerously drinkable. Barely acidic. Overall a tad sweet but very good.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle shared at the Cider Tasting. Pours a richer copper amber hue, a gorgeous glow, no haze, some thicker legs, no head. Aromas are rich apple, a touch tart, bitter on the nose with some yeasty presence, rich mellow sweetness, red apples, and faint honey. Some dry yeast. Initial is medium to heavier, with a substantial sweeter apple, touches bitter, dry, and lingering alcohol heat into that finish. Mellow rich apple with an interesting rich sweetness, dry yeastiness, and tartness. Finish is lingering tartness, cool apples, and touches of ABV heat. I like this, gives a Rose feel with mellow sweetness, dry hybrid. Mmmm. Tartness sticks around. Top notch, my favorite of the evening.
