Bottle. Pours a light amber red body with no carbonation. Apples honey sweet. Apple skins, lightly salty and chewy apple caramel. A bit vinous. This is great!

Pours a lovely orange red with some extremely fine carbonation that lines the bottom of the glass. This is not a carbonated cider, though, nor does it taste it. The strength of this cider is no doubt in its absolutely wonderful tartness: that aspect of the flavor is so dead on that it is hard not to love this drink. However, there is not too much else going on. There is a lack of complexity, and a lack of oomph, and the finish is actually quite short and doesn’t leave a never-ending sweetness on the tongue like some of the best ice ciders. It’s almost wheaty in the finish, and it is a bit watery as well. However, the tart in this from the Geneva apples is simply so wonderful that I can’t give this any lower than a 4.

CheesedMan (555) - Saint Cloud, Florida, USA - JUL 19, 2008
Poured a gorgeous hazy red, with some strong orange notes. Aroma is very acidic, green apple like. There are some tantalizing spice notes as well. The flavor is so unique, with a bracing acidity that is razor sharp, cutting the sweetness nicely. Very good cider...

Relabeled as "Cidre de glace rose." Poured a perfectly clear red-orange with no head. The aroma was full of apples and sweetness. Since this was my first Ice cider I wasn’t exactly sure what to expect, but it was great. Flavor was full of sweet and sour apples, one of my favorite flavors in general, and the cider didn’t disappoint. The finish was very dry and prickly and even more tart. I definitely need to take a trip to Quebec to get more of this, and I may even have to give Geneva apples a try. This is certainly the "Michael Jordan" of ciders, as far as I can tell.

Relabeled as "Cidre de glace rose." A brilliant red-orange color with no head to speak of. Has some decent legs to it. Aroma of caramel apples along with a fair bit of tartness as well. Taste is beautiful: starts off very sweet, but then dries up in a flash. Dryness melds into sourness, leaving the tongue feeling a bit prickly. When on the tongue, this cider feels almost weightless, like it’s just sort of floating there. Haven’t experienced that before. Finishes bone dry and sour. It practically sucks all the moisture out of my mouth; it even makes my tongue stick out! This is some kind of good, let me tell you. I must get another bottle.

Grovlam (4152) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - OCT 3, 2007
Bottle. [Courtesy of Ungstrup, quality tasting @ Papsoe] Spare fizzy white head that was quickly goon. Spare lacework. Clear reddish brown color. Quit complex aroma of citrus, lemon, fresh apple, wood, vinegar, very dusty and dry feel as well. Underlying sour fruity notes as well. Full bodied with an average carbonation. Moderated sweet with light acidic flavor. Dry and fresh apple sweet finish. Very nice. 28-09-2007

(Bottle 37,5 cl) Courtesy of Ungstrup. Pours a clear, warm red. Complex, sweetish berry-like aroma. Full-bodied with very sweet fruit notes and some astringent, peely accents. Complex and very intriguing. 280907
