COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Our bountiful apple orchard located on the southern slopes of Pinnacle Mountain provides the essential ingredient for this outstanding Ice Cider. Over 80 hand-picked apples go into every bottle, creating an intense, richly-flavoured cider that will complement many foods or can be enjoyed on its own to celebrate any occasion.

Bottle sampled at Mondial des Cidres de Glace 2014 with Linh, Minh and Angela. Pours a clear golden body with light, tight bubbled lacing. Aroma is fresh apple slices, juice and light honey. Mouthfeel really showcases an alternative to the thick syrupy feel typical to most ice ciders. Flavors seem much brighter; notes of apple champagne, fresh juice, fruit slices and light honey. Light white whine feel, but no surprise the apple character really dominates here.

BMan1113VR (7786) - Los Angeles, California, USA - JAN 4, 2014
2009 Bottle from a long ago trade. Pours with a clear deep golden hued body with less carbonation than expected. The bubbles slowly fizz away leaving little head but solid legs. Aromas are of intense apples, lightly cheesy, huge tannins, brown sugar, zesty acidity, lots of sweetness. Intense. Mild plum character. Flavors are zesty and slightly musty. Massive acidity balances the massive sweetness. Slightly oxidized flavors. Carbonation is prickly but not intense at all. Very well balanced for the amount of sweetness. Tons of brown sugar. Full bodied and decadent.

Poured from bottle into wine glass. Whoa boy, my first ice cider and it didn't disappoint. Intense apple sweetness. Instead of being cloying and overbearing, it's well complemented by a deep, warming funk. Like a moldy brown liquor. I mean that in a good way too. Really changes my understanding of what a cider can be. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Scopey (5506) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - JAN 30, 2013
Bottle from Liquor Depot, Banff. It pours clear golden amber with quickly dissipating fizz. The nose is Braeburn apples, apple skin, clean sweetness, syrup and apple pie. The taste is intense apple, sweet apple juice, syrup, bruised apple, light tartness, tinned peach and some alcohol warmth with a smooth tangy apple finish. Medium body, light carbonation and oily mouth-feel. The body is lifted by the carbonation. Tasty stuff and dangerously drinkable.

Ungstrup (28448) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - JAN 15, 2013
Bottled. A dark amber cider with a rim of beige head. The aroma has notes of over ripe apples, alcohol, and a bit of mold. The flavor is sweet with notes of alcohol, over ripe apples, and mold, leading to a lightly tart and lightly alcoholic finish. Thanks fiulijn for sharing.

Crockett (1002) - Southampton,Ontario, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 31, 2012
Very nice. Waited quite a long time (7 years) to try this 2005 example. Held up very well. Aroma of sticky apple and a trace of alcohol. Surprisingly well carbonated. Deep mouthfeel. I wasn’t looking for much more than syruppy apple goodness and wasn’t disappointed. Despite all the heavy sweetness it still carried a decent amount of acidity and a trace of yeasty dough. Went just stinkin’ fine with the pork shoulder.

omhper (18939) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - JUL 14, 2012
Bottled, thanks fiulijn! Bright golden, mildy viscous, carbonation already gone when I tasted. Aroma of ripe, mature apples. Sweet, full bodied. Honey wraps the overripe apples, a twist of lemon is sprinkled over and alcohol heat finishes it off.

SlovakSniper (2807) - Candiac/Frelighsburg, Quebec, CANADA - JUL 8, 2012
Une dégustation à quelques pas du domaine. Une robe dorée qui laisse quelques bulles remonter à la surface. Un nez riche de pommes en sauce et de vieilles pommes qui laissent échapper un souffle acidulé. Des saveurs qui ne sont pas trop éloignées, des pommes chargés de miel et de fleurs qui se choquent à cette saveur particulière de pelure de pomme. Une bouche qui présente une belle rondeur avec un pétillement très bas. Un corps assez costaud, tout de même. Une finale, contre toute attente, qui attaque de façon admirable les glandes salivaires. Un petit verre appréciable.
