gegwilson (1198) - North Yorkshire, ENGLAND - SEP 12, 2014
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_ (2798) - 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.

Bottle from a store in San Diego. Cloudy copper/golden color, no head. Overripe apple aroma, woody, caramel, innamon notes, apple peels, slightly sourish. Sweet apple flavor, caramel, grapes, earthy, applepie, warming alcohol, yeast notes. Nice and interesting.

Ibrew2or3 (6926) - 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.

daknole (9127) - Scottsdale, Arizona, USA - JUN 15, 2014
Cloudy brown pour. Looks and smells of natural apple juice with a good dose of caramel. Very sweet, very tasty.

brokensail (11008) - Orange County, California, USA - MAY 7, 2014
Bottle @ 10K + OT. Thanks again to Steve for this bottle. Slightly cloudy amber pour. Lots of butterscotch on the nose. Caramel, baked apple, and some slight cardboard/oxidation. Taste is typically sweet, but heavy on the butterscotch candies. Caramel sauce, baked apple, slight buttery pie crust, and light cardboard. A bit of sherry, too.

[ Bottle ][ brokensail ][ 375ml ][ 10K+OT Tasting ][ Stemless Wine Taster ][ 5/3/14 ]
>> Vintage 2006. Clear, chill hazed red amber pour. No legs. Nose is salty, sweaty, buttery strawberry biscuit and jam. Taste is salty, Worcestershire, tannic, watery, overly salty, savory. Odd. Not so great.

BeerandBlues2 (9728) - Hanover, Maryland, USA - NOV 3, 2013
Bottle at home. Pours clear amber. Aroma is caramel, apples, and light oxidation (sherry). Flavor is blended apple varieties, caramel, earthy notes and a sweet finish. Medium to full body.

ClubGonzo (4053) - Bergen, NORWAY - NOV 1, 2013
Bottle. Pours a clear copper body, completely still. Nose is raisins, prunes, oxidized apples and hints of wood. Taste is intense apple flavor with huge tones of prunes, sherry, dark fruits, wood and hints of toffee and brown sugar. Dense body. Not much pears to identify. Pretty nice, and very different.
