COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Our bountiful apple orchard located on the southern slopes of Pinnacle Mountain provides the essential ingredient for this outstanding Ice Cider. Over 12 pounds (5.5 kg) of hand-picked apples go into every bottle, creating an intense, richly-flavored cider that will complement many foods. Enjoy with cheese or foie gras, as an aperitif, with dessert, or as an end note to a perfect meal. Improves with age and can be stored for many years. No additives or preservatives ~ Serve cold

375cl@OBE2015 Thank You mjs! Sweet, pure apple extract. Thick and full bodied. I have never had a cider like that. Feels like a apple liqueur.

375 ml bottle poured. 2012 vintage. Huge thanks to mcberko for the bottle. This totally exceeded every expectation I had for ice ciders. Golden pour. Smooth apple, cinnamon and honey heavy aroma. Thick body, syrupy, complex apple and honey flavor. Smooth apple sauce like finish, with an endless apple spice linger. Glad this coincidentally landed on a milestone rate. This stuff is a magic potion. Loved it.

ametras (1034) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - OCT 12, 2015
[2012] 50ml bottle. Clear golden amber. Flavors are cooked/caramelized apples, juicy apple flesh/peel, cinnamon and alcohol with citrusy notes. Mild tartness. Medium body, slick texture.

FatPhil (12201) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - SEP 30, 2015
375ml bottle (300e of overpriced beer tasting) - thanks mjs!
Apple and booze aroma. Apple everywhere, some core bitterness there too. Very boozy at every step. Harsh and sharp, yet sugary on the lips too. Has no drinkability at all, and even lacks sipability.

Marduk (4786) - Reval, ESTONIA - SEP 30, 2015
375ml bottle (mjs). Clear dark golden color. Sweet, caramel, apples, bit watery aroma. I got three words to describe it- sweet apple jam. Way too sweet. Damn it’s sweet.

(Bottle, 0.375 l, from Alko, 20150926) The cider poured deep golden and clear. No head. Aroma had apples, sweetness and apple peels. Palate was sticky and full bodied. Flavours were sweetness, apples, apple peels and mild tartness. Aftertaste was sweet and mildly tart. A well done sweet cider.

Benzai (11869) - Oirschot, THE NETHERLANDS, NETHERLANDS - SEP 11, 2015
Sampled from bottle @ Hey Julien is back and Dean’s floor is moist tasting. Clear apple juice golden color, no head. Smell and taste are -I know, not much help but this is what it is- strong but balanced concentrated apple juice. Low carbonation, good body.
