2006 Bottle from vbm. Slightly murky deep gold. Nose is apples and cinnamon, rich honey, earth, some mustiness. Flavor follows with lots of sweet Apple & honey, light acidity, medium caramel. Quite nice. Certainly not as intense as the Quebec ciders but way more drinkable.

apickles (182) - North Yorkshire, ENGLAND - FEB 3, 2015
Bottle direct from the cidery. Burnt orange in colour, no fizz or head. Very sweet on the nose with a little roasted smell. Very sweet with a slightly burnt taste. Very alcoholly apple juice in flavour. Leaves a little burn on the throat. Not particularly my thing but glad I tried it

BadAprilia1000 (310) - Sevierville, Tennessee, USA - JAN 10, 2015
Pours a dark brown caramel color with no head. Aroma is huge, very sweet, sticky, caramel, nutty, candied apple, green apple skins, tart, spice, vanilla, maple syrup. Taste is caramel, smoke, green apple, spicy, vanilla, maple syrup, nutty, thick. Crazy thick mouthfeel, very viscous. Overall a great change from normal stuff, worth the price tag to try once.

douglas88 (6588) - Portland, Oregon, USA - DEC 25, 2014
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.
