2009 vintage. Bright red pour. The nose is really bright and fruity. Very light tartness with a mix of malic and citric character. On the palate the tartness is very intense. Bracing with a mixture of raspberry and strawberry flavour as well. Incredibly unique with a great mix of tartness and rich fruity aromatics. Excellent balance. Vineous and delicious. Wow - really awesome stuff.

A pinkish cider with aroma of light apples over a bed of roses, powdery and interesting. In mouth, a nice sweet apple followed by intense apple skin sourness, astringence, cranberries, quite nice. Mondial des cidres de glace, Feb. 12 2011.

UPDATED: OCT 22, 2012 (Dusty Notes) Generous rosey/amber sample pour at Paul’s(Dickinsonbeer) via the official tasting glass & of course Rciesla . Very regal. Thank you :) Smell is tart & sweaty, peppery & alcoholic. Potent apple & pear fumes rise up along those of saturated oak & bittersweet apple skins. So intense you want to suckle it. Taste is overshadowed by the amazing smell, though still quite wonderful. Tart & leafy. A lemon-honey apple sauce if there were such a thing. Not big or complex. The body is middle of the road, & the alcohol is a little too small to really carry the necessary flavors. It does manage a bittersweet finish, though it stops abruptly in its tracts too soon to be called lingering. You may or may not notice yourself melting into your seat breathing in the leftover residuals clinging to your glass. That is worth a few extra points in the "overall" category to me.

Dickinsonbeer (5074) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - DEC 27, 2010
375 ml bottle. Pours a nice clear violet ruby red/pink with nice sappy legs. Aroma is slight vege, big tart apple skins and flesh, fresh pressed cider, floral, rose hips, hibiscus, sugary sweet. Flavor is more floral notes, big rose hip flavor with the biting acidity- fresh apple juice, tart apples, big bracing mineral acidity cutting through the medium thick honey apple sweetness- very tart and acidic in the finish- inducing heartburn. I love the tart/sweet balance here- it is like they are fighting for power throughout, but then in the end the tartness wins. Awesome.

hopscotch (10601) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - DEC 23, 2010
Bottle ... Vero Beach “GET YOUR RUDOLPH ON” ThrowdownThis ice cider rocks!… Clear amber cider with rosy highlights. The bouquet is a marriage of fresh apple juice and hard cider. Full-bodied with a lightly buttery mouthfeel. The flavor is of fresh apple juice with very nice, sharp acidity. Sweet-tart finish that dries out completely. Delicious. Big-time thanks go out to jcwattsrugger for providing the bottle of this world class ice cider!

pivnizub (10136) - Bochum, Porúří, GERMANY - NOV 18, 2010
Bouteille (Le Moissonier, Cologne): Clear, deep pinkish-amber coloured, no head; solid sweet-sour aromas of apples and almonds (apple seeds); solid sweet flavour with a light bitterness underneath; apples, almonds and apple-skin in the slightly lingering sweet-fruity finish, balanced by a good dash of malic acid. Superb digestif.......

j12601 (9548) - Poughkeepsie, New York, USA - NOV 22, 2009
Bottle at Paul’s tasting. Pours a clear sticky orange, still, no head. Huge drippy apples, honey, caramel. Tart and sweet, great acid moving into a long warming apple brandy alcohol and a long lingering tart acidity.

375ml bottle. 8% 2007 version. Pours red amber. Nose of light tart/sour apples. Taste is sweet red apples and a bit tart. Finish is a bit tart and quite sweet. Quite easy drinking and quite refreshing in the summer. Very original and very tasty. Less complex than other ice ciders.

Pours copper and still. Smells of sweet aple pie apples, some honey, some hints of grape. Tastes sweet and spicy with a nice appley finish. I wish I had better descriptors for these gems as I enjoy them quite a bit.
