Small bottle from Beaumont. Pours a clear reddish copper color with no head of course. A big spicy apple nose, very much like a spiced cider. A oddly smoky flavor, like smoked candied apples, light spices, big sugary apples. Tartness at times, this is very much an apple pie brew. Very tasty. Not as big as others I’ve had. Nothing much to say besides that Ice Ciders are awesome. Winners every time in my book. Merry Christmas.

Bottle from the cidery visited while doing the Normandy cidre trail. Pours a rich amber colour. The taste is intense stewed apples. Sweet, but tart. A slightly earthy finish. The alcohol really isn’t that evident. Lovely syrupy mouth feel. Delicious but a touch cloying after a while. A sipper

Huge butterscotch caramel smell. Insane butterscotch, caramel, and toffee flavors with cooked apples. One of the most delicious beverages I’ve ever had.

_angst_ (3058) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - JUL 26, 2014
Bottle courtesy of aniela. 2006 vintage. Pours murky reddish brown with no head. Smell is fruity and tiny spicy with concentrated apple must, cinnamon, overripe apples, raisins, moist soil and hints of lemon peal. Taste is sweet with overripe apples, raisins, figs, sweet sherry, cinnamon, moist wood and alcohol. Mouthfeel is round, sticky sweet, tiny boozy and medium bodied. Finish is sweet and fruity with overripe apples, hay, figs, apple brandy, moist wood and hints of lemon peal. Nicely oxidised but the base Ice Cider isn’t very impressive.

Ibrew2or3 (7101) - Tempe, Arizona, USA - JUL 3, 2014
2006 vintage, fancy green glass bottle with yellow wax pours with a murky messy looking amber body that has thin copper hues. The aroma entices with billowing caramel candy notes as well as butterscotch candy and toffee. Wow! Cool. The taste is virtually the same as smooth caramel candy and toffee notes rule the experience and thin snippets of apple are noticed out at the flavor periphery.
