Sampled thanks to Andrew for these the great ciders. Lots of red apple. Nose isn’t quite as good as the flavor. More apples in the flavor sweet tart fruity.. Sweeter sugarry but good. A lot sweeter than the premier. 7/4/8/4/16

4.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Rating #8000. Nose brings out toffee, caramelized apples, and bready apple pie. Flavour is wonderfully complex, with notes of caramelized apples, toffee, bready notes, and light oak. Very silky, viscous and warming. Everything is in perfect proportion. The complexity is through the roof. Certainly an elegant ice cider.

Puh, can it go better than this? Lovely yellow flavour, cinnamon, sweet pink candy. At the backend, a modest acidity. This is well made, great product. The mouthfeel at his best. Ice cider to be king!

4.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
[ Bottle ][ 375mL ][ La Face Cachee QC ][ $21 ][ Neige Stemware ][ 2.27.15 ]
>> Pours deep fire iridium amber with thick alcohol legs and dense viscosity. Nose is salted caramel apple, apple strudel, freshly baked apple pie. Taste brings dark cherry, tart green apple, and mild spicy alcohol along with that playoff of salt, sour, sugar, and tannin. Not syrupy sweet, more like biting into more apple strudel or apple danish but the apples inside are fresh and still have a crunch. Mild tannin balance. This one is a knockout as expected.

Bottle @ Mondial des Cidres de Glace 2015. Light amber colored pour with sticky legs. Juicy stone fruit and apple on the nose. Great caramel, some maple, and tons of vanilla. Slight oak, some fruit skins, and pear. The flavor is just super juicy and fruity. Great acidity as well. Sweet vanilla, caramel, and a hint of maple. Another very well done product from La Face Cachée de la Pomme.

A - Dark orange almost a bronze gold. Nice alcohol legs, flat obviously.
S - Has a huge fruity apple and pear with a little bit of clove and prune. Nose is pretty huge with lots of fruit
T - Wow. There is a ton of flavor in this one. It has an almost rotten apple finish. up front I get blueberry, apple, honeysuckle and just loads and loads of apple.
M - Thick, viscous and oily. coats every aspect of the tongue and leaves a lot of sweetness
O - This is a very unique cider. I’d love to get more!

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
bottle - This golden amber cider has an extra rich, ripe apple aroma. It tastes very sweet with a sharp, tart apple bite and some brown apple undertones. It puts me in mind of very sweet red delicious apples and once gain this cidery delivers a superb cider.
