4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle. Pours crystal clear golden orange with no head. Aroma is intensified apple - I don’t know how else to describe it. Flavor is about the same, quite sweet, strong apple goodness. Medium body, some warming from the ABV. Pretty darn tasty for desert.

4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottles. Orange still pour. Can’t believe I haven’t rated this yet. Seemed better with a bit of age. Stark apple and light sweet and hints of maple. Isn’t as good as the special versions but still sweet and potent.

4.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Apple, caramel, slight blue cheese, honey in the nose.
Huge apple, honey, light lemon, cheese, nicely acidic to balance the huge syrupy sweetness, with a touch of alcohol burn as well. Fully body, oily and silky. Great stuff. I liked the sparkling version a bit more.

4.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
UPDATED: APR 28, 2013 Bottle from Frasers Wine Merchants 
Brillant golden yellow, crystal clear, thin white rim around glass, great apperance for a cider/apple ice wine. Beautiful packaging.
Aroma - Intense sweet fresh apples, slighty tart note initially, some warming alcohol on the nose, dab of apple caramel
Taste - Extremely rich intense fresh apple nectar, smooth apple pie filling, incredible apple flavour, very fresh, just the sweet juicy part of the apple concentrated, what an incredible flavour - an explosion of apple in the mouth. It’s not complex - it’s just sweet apples but the flavour is phenomenal.
Palate - Full body, very very smooth, rich lingering sweet intense fresh apple, it’s sweet but not too sweet, completely mouthcoating the mouth with that fantastic apple nectar. The finish is flawless - very long linger of that fantastic rich apple and so so smooth.
Overall - This is one of the best flavoured liquids I have ever tasted. It’s worth the money to try once. I’m really seriously thinking of getting the top of the range version now! Incredible!
Same bottle .....wonderful very intense sweet, but not too sweet fresh apple - it’s the best part of the apple flavour concentrated into a very smooth oily but sticky liquid nectar...i’m staying at 4.6

4.4 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
200ml bottle. 2010. ABV 12.5%. A clear golden-copper body, no head, oily legs on the glass, similar to a good wine. Aroma is just mesmerizing: tons of ripe McIntosh apples, wine, oak barrel, vanilla, honey. I’m salivating just smelling it. Taste is repugnantly delicious: a mix of the sweetest apple liquor and vinegar, honey, vanilla, hints of booze. Oily and very sticky body. I must admit it’s my first ice cider, but I’m impressed.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
37,5cl Bottle from Vinmonopolet. Shared with Pops. Thanks to Meilbye for picking it up. Pours clear golden with a few bubbles on top. Lots of fresh red apples, a bit of vanilla and wood. Crisp and warming with a dry finish. Remarkable fruityness. Lovely sipper. A shame it is so expensive.

4.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
UPDATED: FEB 22, 2013 2009 Vintage. 375mL bottle, pours an uncarbonated clear golden. Aroma is full of pure apples, honey, vanilla, and a little treacle. Flavour is supremely complex, with loads of vanilla, treacle, honey and apples. The depth of flavours and richness is remarkable - the palate is sweet, but not cloying, leaving rich notes of caramel apple, vanilla and treacle toffee. Oh man is this good. Bloody fantastic.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle (200 ml). Clear straw color with no head. Aroma is a lot of fresh apples and some sugar notes. Very tasty. Moderate to heavy sweetness (reasonable considering it’s an Ice Cider). Intense fresh apple notes (only apples, there’s no other fruits presence like some other Ice Cider). Mouthfeel is sirupy, but not as thick as Récolte d’Hiver. Warming alcohol/sugar. Another wonder by La Face Cachée. Easily drinkable for an Ice Cider and so tasty!

4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
UPDATED: SEP 29, 2013 2010 bottle. Glowing golden-amber body. Nose is rich, sweet, and intense apples. Just the slightest hints of caramel filling things out. Flavor is an assault of sweet, but not cloying, ripe apples. Medium bodied, lightly syrupy, nice sweet finish. A phenomenal product--an apple lover’s dream.
