Bottle @ 10K + OT. Thanks for the bottle, Steve. Still, clear golden pour. Tons of caramel, brown sugar, and apple pie. Fresh apple cider, slight acidic fruit, and a touch of lemon juice. Flavor is clean and simple. Lots of sweet apple juice/cider, apple pie, and brown sugar. Sweet caramel sauce and a touch of acidity on the finish.

Thanks to tom10101 for this one! 5 cl. bottle, gorgeous packaging. Split with Martinus @ ZBF 2014. I am having a hard time describing ice ciders so far, I keep winding up with the same words. Pours a clear golden. Intense apple aroma, very sweet, lots of fructose and sugar in the nose, sweet spices, pie. Huge apple taste, explosively sweet, sticky sweet, cinnamon, apple pie, spices, very sweet apple sauce. Sticky, touch agave-feel to it. Mmmmm…..

Liquide doré limpide et plutôt pâlot. Un nez de jus de pommes alcoolisé et de fleurs printanières. Très bon goût sucré, apporté par une texture agréablement sirupeuse. Une acidité tranchante, qui donne l’impression de croquer dans une pomme pas assez mûre, nous rince le palais et s’tire longuement en arrière-goût. Bien plaisant ce liquide. Récolte 2012 (1053-110414)

Nice glowing golden-orange body. Sticky sweet apples, light spice, and sugars. Medium bodied, assertive sweetness, muted finish that just takes a bit off the experience.

Recolte 2009. This is a very average ice cider. A good place to start if you’re new to the world of ice cider and want to see what the basics are. No faults, good smoothness, but nothing particularly exciting either. Fairly high acidity, medium-minus sweetness, low complexity.

3fourths (8984) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - FEB 20, 2014
Récolte 2009. Strongly sweet red apples and cinnamon spice. Syrupy, medium body, some acidic pop. Alcohols are bright but not dirty, no fusels. Apple character is a bit stew-y and brown.

UPDATED: JUL 9, 2014 Bottle sampled at Mondial 2014 with Linh, Minh and Angela. Pours a rich golden honey body. Aroma is rich apples, light acidity and sweet honey. Mouthfeel is rich and smooth with notes of sweet apples, sugar syrup, honey and light acidity. Very nice.

Small 50 ml bottle from tom10101 as an extra, thanks man! Clear golden syrupy apple juice pour, a few tiny little white bubbles resonate on the side of the glass but for the most part no carbonation to speak. Aroma - sweet apples mashed up, a tossed into a bottle. Taste - extremely sweet, very apple forward, less complexity and depth then the previous cider I tried but very nice nonetheless.

Pours a still golden that coats the glass with nice translucent lace. Aroma is of concentrated apple juice, sweet and acidic. Taste confirms the assumption with a medium level of sweetness for an ice cider (how many g/L?) and a nice balancing acidity. Mouthfeel is lightly syrupy and alcohol is hidden really well. Great!

2009 vintage drank in late 2013. Maybe it’s a bit to old but I see no negative side effects of that. No carbonation could be an effect. Pours a medium amber with no head to speak of. Looks very oily in the glass. Smells of caramel, sour apples, and a deep honey smell like mead. A bit of vanilla. Full oily body. At first when it touches the lips it sweet like syrup with a sour apple finish. My first ice cider. It was very nice. The sweetness is very developed.
