4.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
2½ oz from bottle (375 ml).
Appearance: Deep golden amber with pinkish reflects and nice legs.
Aroma: Mild. Tart apples, brown sugar notes, floral notes and oak.
Taste: Now it gets interesting! Sharp acidity. Light to moderate sweetness, but completely cut by the acidity. Tart apples with light brown sugar, red fruits, oak, hints of vanilla and a touch of alcohol.
Palate: Medium body. A bit liquorous. Nice sharp acidic finish with lingering tart apples and light warming.
Overall: Not the most expressive aroma, but it’s one of the best tasting Ice Ciders I have tried so far. The acidity is really really interesting and help the drinkability. I could have drank the full bottle (or at least half of it) by myself easily. Superb!

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.
