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.

4.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 19/20
Pours a clear golden/mild amber color...bright like apple juice...oily/syrupy with great legs. Aroma has loads of fresh from the orchard apple...like fresh cider...touch of booziness and a faint hint of caramel. Flavor is fresh apple cider...almost a hint of brandy...sweet yet tart with mild caramel. Mouthfeel is medium and syrupy with a slightly sweet apple/caramel finish that warms. Fabulous!!!

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
2009 vintage. Like a Weston’s vintage cider on steroids with a sweeter, fuller mid palate and a nice sweet sour finish. Moderate funky, but big on the honey apple sweetness. No carbonation. A tad cloying and the minimal carbonation makes it a bit tough going, but still a wonderful treat;.

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottled. Poured crystal-clear bright golden and completely still. The aroma picked up spiced apple cider, peppery notes, and a kiss of cucumber.. warm and inviting. The flavor found warm, mulled apple cider, honey, and mango with another rich layer of light fruit and a touch of rum warmth behind.. finished warm with a great dose of apple tardiness. Heavier-bodied and syrupy on the palate.. crisp, with great balance.. loved it!

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
200mL Bottle, purchased at Atwater SAQ - Montreal, QC. Blossomy, syrup and caramel nose. A rich balance of acid and juice. The tropical fruits lay a little lower on this one and the more cooked, aged, and darker edges of apples come out. The snappy acid balance is so great for the level of sugar. Excellent overall, but I’d take a nip more complexity out of the apple sugars in the middle.
