Bottle pour, much thanks to mcberko for the share on this. Always love trying these ice ciders. Some of the best tastes in the world. Crystal clear apple juice pour with no head. Sweeter than expected red apple aroma. Like a spiced apple sauce. Flavor is generously sweet and thick. The right kind of sweet. Not overwhelming or candy. Pleasant, with a bold backbone to it. Leaves quite a lasting impression. Purely a magic potion here. Love it.

Taste from bottle, thanks to Andrew (and mcberko before him). Deep caramel, concentrated sugar, apple on nose. Still, heavy, clear gold elixir. Supple body, velvet, alcohol so hidden by a robust sweetness. Marshmallow, butterscotch, treacle. Grape turning in to raisins. Very concentrated, quite sweet, but delicious. Supple.

375mL bottle, pours a hazy golden copper. Aroma brings out treacle tart, caramelized apples, and toffee. Flavour is highly sweet even for an ice cider, with toffee, treacle and caramelized apples. Loads of caramelized apples on the finish. Not the most complex ice cider, but it’s certainly decadent and well-made. Excellent.

JulienHuxley (5640) - Trois-Rivières, Quebec, CANADA - SEP 24, 2015
50 ml Bottle. Clear bright deep gold pour. Aroma is really fruity, applesauce, apple butter, mild boozy notes. Taste is very rich, sweet, buttery, caramel flavor. Palate is full bodied, sticky with lingering boozy finish. Really good stuff.

Bamsen78 (5071) - Sønderborg, DENMARK - JUL 28, 2015
Bottle, 5 ml. Pours clear golden amber with a few bubbles on the surface. Clear aroma of apples, with notes of fermentation and very mild hints of spice. Sweetish flavour of frozen apples with dry, vinous notes. Oily texture. Vinous and fruity afteraste. Warming alcohol presence. Very nice. Ideal to conclude my tour of Canada with. :-)

Bottle, tasting at Ferris’
Light amber color, bright. The aroma is very deep: fruits, sourness, apricots. Thick mouthfeel, very sweet, but also with a high degree of acidity; lot of apple and apricot flavor, without the caramel or stewed fruits, a bit astringent in the final.
Excellent liquor.

AirForceHops (6302) - Epping, New Hampshire, USA - MAR 28, 2015
Thanks to Ajax and Heather for this 4 oz. bottle. Clear yellow color, no head. Aroma is golden apples, pear juice and sugar. Flavor is very sweet and a direct reflection of the aroma. Syrupy and slick texture. Very sweet but completely fantastic.

AdamChandler (4540) - Enfield, New Hampshire, USA - MAR 28, 2015
Small 4 ounce bottle, dark yellow nice legs. Smells insane. Sweet cherry, raspberry, persimmon and pear. Insanely sweet, high residual sugar content, I mostly get granny smith apple, pear, finish of raisins and currants.

Martinus (4538) - Baarle-Nassau, NETHERLANDS - MAR 23, 2015
Clear warm golden colour. Aroma of apple, sweet apple, pie, bit spicy. Sweet apple flavour, treacle, syrup. Flat, quite viscous. Finish lingering apple, quite sweet, treacle. Nice. I’m quite a sucker for ice ciders.
(from 5cL miniature bottle @ ZBF 2014. Huge thanks for sharing, 77ships!)
