4.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Corked bottle from Liberty Wine on 10th Street, Vancouver, vintage 2007, 5 years old
Wonderful gold-amber color with beautiful legs. Deep aroma of apple syrup, with hint of hazelnut, and a suggestion of acidity. Thick, syrupy, largely sweet, but perfectly balanced by the alcohol warmth and the acidity; notes of caramel, stewed apples and honey. Long final, with also a spicy vein.
Maybe less vibrant than a couple of favorite ones, but still an excellent and mature choice.

4.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Bottle: Poured a deep copper color cider with some great notes of sweet tender apple. I thought the sweetness was very well balance with the apple taste while alcohol was very well hidden. The only negative thing I can say about this ice cider is that it was lacking some of the apple pie character tat I usually very much love in those ciders.

4.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
UPDATED: JUL 5, 2008 Pours a nearly perfectly crystalline, copper. Thick and viscous, the glycerin legs coat the glass walls. The aroma is a whirlwind of apples, brown sugar, spice, honey, vanilla. The flavor is stunning. An unusual strawberry note at the beginning quickly yields to flavors of honey, fresh apples, some pears, a touch of spices. This is an amazing cider.
