Bottle (2008)… This cider rocks!… Clear, brilliant, textbook-copper cider. A strong swirl applies a nice coating to the sides of my glass and, eventually, some decent legwork is formed. The aroma is simply a decadent swirl of spice and apple brilliance. Wow! Full-bodied and velvety – almost chewy. The flavor is a perfect balance of fruity sweetness and malic acidity. If there were such things, this is what apple SweeTarts would taste like. Finishes tart, rich and syrupy; decadent and delectable. Thanks so much to MartinT for bringing this world class ice cider down from Quebec!

Pouring at Le Mondial des Cidres Glaces. Pours a clear gold. Big and bright, full of fresh apple peels, bright and tart. Very lively. Lots of apple skins, big acid and a lot of tarness. Quite novel and a great counterpoint to many of the ice ciders that day.

(Bouteille de 50 ml) Le liquide a une couleur jaune dorée. Les arômes de pommes sucrées rouges sont accompagnés par un très léger souffle d’alcool. Le goût est celui d’un jus doux touché par l’acidité des pommes vertes qui transpirent de très fines épices. La présence des saveurs d’alcool me semble davantage définie. En bouche, le liquide a une rondeur agréable avec une texture sirupeuse et légèrement collante. En finale, les notes douces sont rapidement rattrapées par l’acidité mordante des fruits.

Boutip (4862) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - JUL 5, 2010
Bottle: Poured a deep golden color ice cider with notes of sweet apple juice. Aroma is not the most complex though quite enjoyable with loads of sweet apple notes. Taste is also dominated by sweet apples with no complex ester such apple pie. Alcohol is very faint and almost not perceptible. Not my favourite but enjoyed nonetheless.

Pours amber and still. Smells of warming alcohol, sweet apples. Tastes of vanilla, sweet apples, some honeydew, gently floral notes. Enjoyable.

Clear medium yellow orange color with virtually none head. Aroma is moderate to heavy apple, wood, vanilla notes, light alcohol. Flavor is light heavy sweet and light fruity - apple acidic with a long duration. Body is medium to full, texture is syrupy, carbonation is flat, finish feel is moderate alcoholic. [20100219]

Alphadelic (1762) - Portland, Oregon, USA - MAR 3, 2010
Recolte 2008 - The nose is rich and pulpy apple with dry woodiness and plenty of bright sweetness. Amazingly sweet. Crazy, crazy sweet in the mouth. It has the strength and consistency of undiluted cordial and it amazingly apple-y. The alcohol gives a light burn in the throat. An experience.

CaptainCougar (7132) - Columbia, Maryland, USA - MAR 2, 2010
2008 bottle shared by ygtbsm94 on 1/10/10: Pours a transparent still pale golden with good legs. Has a rich sweet apple nose with a hint of citric pear character. Starts with a good rich apple sweetness with some caramel complexity and tart fruity balance. Finishes sticky sweet and warming. A pretty good ice cider.

Bottle @ Fastelavnssmagning, Ulfborg. Pours clear golden with no head. Nose is lovely complex. Red apples and fresh grass. Sticky and oily. Low carbonation. Fruity and ripe red apples. Vague warmth. Complex and very tasty!

MiP (13798) - Sønderborg, DENMARK - FEB 19, 2010
Bottle, 10.5%. Sweet apple aroma. Clear golden colour. Good sweet flavour, very sweet actually. Spicy apple with a bit of alcohol. Good level of alcohol even though the sweetness overpowers it.
