2007 vintage from pepsiedcan...thanks Andy! - Pours cloudy caramel with no head. Nose is sweet, juicy apple cider, real crisp and tart. Notes of caramel, apple skins, oak, and a tinge of booze. The taste...whoa. Never tasted any beverage quite like this before. Being my first ice cider, not sure if this is what they all taste like. It coats your mouth with a watered-down caramel apple sweetness. light baking spice and overripe apples fill the mouth. Wow. Just intense apple cider flavor, real concentrated. I canít tell if I love or hate the mouthfeel. Itís real viscous, which accentuates the mouth-coating feeling. This is a dessert wine in the truest sense, and I canít help but feel like this should be served in a tiny glass after a great meal or poured over ice cream. Iím not doing this beverage justice drinking half the bottle in a tulip glass on a Monday night.

2006 Bottle, compliments of Matt, shared with some heads. Pours a clearish copper color with zero head and lacing. Aromas of apple skins, toffee, apple pie. Taste is sweet apple pie crust, with honey, cinnamon, and raisins also present. Mouthfeel was soft and chewy. Medium to fuller bodied cider. This one blew us away.

yngwie (14762) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - JUN 23, 2012
Bottle, 2009 vintage. An amber colored cider, flat and oily. Soft and rounded on the nose, with some alcohol hints. Lots of apples though. A touch of caramel too. A tasteful one, with lots of apples and sweetness, and some orchard. Dry on the palate even though itís quite sweet. Really lasting finish with apples and sweetness. Maybe a bit too sweetish and low on alcohol, but itís still a damn tasteful drink. 120623
