brokensail (11085) - Orange County, California, USA - JAN 7, 2013
Dark caramel colored pour with nice legs and great clarity. Aroma is rich, sweet, apple, almost apple pie-like. Amazing caramel aroma and sweetness, vanilla, a hint of butterscotch, dark fruit, and a subtle apple tartness. The flavor is amazingly sweet with tons of apple, sugar, vanilla, caramel, and butterscotch notes. Hints of oak, some dark fruit, subtle tartness, and mild alcohol on the finish. Amazing stuff. Thanks, Chris!

Bottle… O-Town Throwdown Part Tres… Here it comes… wait for it… wait for it… ok, here it is… This cider rocks!.... The clear yellow elixir pours oily and leaves sexy, thick legs after going for a swirl in my glass. The rich aroma offers a variety of über-concentrated apples with a whisper of vanilla. Ultra sweet flavor, but also acidic. Simple, tasty. Full-bodied and oily with minimal carbonation. Mostly sweet, lightly tart finish. Thanks go out to Dickinsonbeer for providing the sample of this world class cider!

JoeMcPhee (8510) - Toronto, ON, Ontario, CANADA - MAR 12, 2011
Pale golden straw pour. The nose is light with a bit of soft vanillaish oak backing the bright fresh apple character. There is a bit of light tart pineapple on the nose but the deep rich apple character seems to have fallen off a bit. A little bit of light tannic character. Rich and tasty throughout. There is a bit of soft pepper on the back. It’s quite unusual actually although I miss the brightness of the original. LIght vanilla and almost a bit of coconut. Pretty nice stuff.

jercraigs (7921) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 3, 2008
2008-10-02. Crisp dark yellow body coats the glass a bit. (3+) Big aroma of lightly caramelized apple, sugars, fruity apple. (8+) Flavour is mostly sweet sugars at first, fruit, apple note in the finish speaks heavily of skins. Perhaps an oaky earth note? tart apple undertones take their time arriving, but ultimately keep it from becoming cloying. Smooth medium to full bodied palate. (4+) Lovely stuff. Bottle c/o Quevillon

j12601 (6607) - Poughkeepsie, New York, USA - FEB 16, 2011
Pouring at Le Mondial des Cidres Glaces. Pours a tawny amber. Warm brandy, oak and apples on the nose. Long and sweet with lingering acid notes. Smooth, but there’s enough of an acidic edge about it to be interesting. Long tart acid and warm alcohol on the finish.

Cletus (6354) - Connecticut, USA - AUG 17, 2008
One of the multitudes of ice ciders brought back from Canada. Pours gold with a nice neck. Smells of sweet apples, some underylying dryness, hints of spice. Taste combines sweet and tarte nicely. Very enjoyable dessert wine.

blankboy (6150) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 7, 2008
Bottle (375ml) shared with GregClow, jerc & mabel -- courtesy of jerc & mabel. Pours a clear yellow-gold with no head. Very, very nice aroma of tart apples (of course), oak, light spices and some sugary sweetness. Woody, tart apple flavour follows the aroma. Buttery mouthfeel. Medium to full bodied. Way better then I expected, this is fantastic stuff -- I loved it!
