Yellow pour. Apple, honey, sweet upfront with a light tartness in the finish. Nice.

BiiruBierBeer (932) - Phoenix, Arizona, USA - JAN 6, 2016
Smell is apple cider and a bit of booze. Taste is apple juice, cider, and a tinge of alcohol. Not as rich as its French and Canadian counterparts. Medium body and very light carbonation with no foam and a very slight bit of booze heat.

Oakes (15490) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - OCT 19, 2015
Golden colour. Mellow apple aroma. On the palate, it has a strong tannic character and a bitter apple finish. The sweetness is not nearly what you get from other ice ciders, only moderate. It’s a bit juicy, and the tannins lend balance. The body is fairly thick, though. I like it as a dessert cider, though expectations of ice cider richness won’t be rewarded.

brokensail (15764) - Dublin, California, USA - OCT 13, 2015
Bottle @ home. Thanks, Jake. Clear golden pour with nice viscosity. Big sweet honey, apple, and maple notes. A hint of vanilla in there, too. Lighter on the acidity, unfortunately, but still enough to make this pleasant. Body is a little on the lighter side as well. Sort of makes it easier to drink, but not quite as lush and satisfying as the better examples. It has good fruit character, though, and is overall enjoyable.

bhensonb (13985) - Woodland, California, USA - AUG 28, 2015
Corked bottle from Total Wine in Sacramento, CA. Pours gold with barely even bubbles. Aroma is apple and a lot of floral. Body is slick, almost a bit oily. Mostly sweet with a bit of apple skin tart. Not a trace of heat for me. Nice change. Ice ciders seldom come my way.

slowrunner77 (9946) - Reno, Nevada, USA - JUL 31, 2015
$14 thin n tall bottle. Sweet apple aroma with hints of flowers. Flavor is much the same. Good, but not as deep or special as expected, especially at the price point. I’d love to try some of the better iced ciders, but usually don’t see em round here.

Corked bottle from Whole Foods
Measured Final Gravity: 1022

Yellow color. Semi-sweet cider, with moderate acidity, and definitively no depth typical of good Ice Ciders; given the high price tag (27 USD, 30 CAD), this is not an interesting product.

Ferris (12427) - Burnaby, British Columbia, CANADA - MAY 13, 2015
Bottle - Nice apple notes with lots of Apple peel. Clear gold. Lots of Apple peel and a dry finish. A bit boring and plain compare to the east coast, but OK.

   AROMA 7/10   APPEARANCE 3/5   TASTE 6/10   PALATE 3/5   OVERALL 13/20
BeerandBlues2 (12056) - Escondido, California, USA - MAY 1, 2015
Bottle at home. Pours clear gold and still. Aroma is sweet apples, banana and light vanilla notes and hay. Flavor is sweet apples, cooked bananas, alcohol notes, light earthiness and a sweet finish. Full body and still.

   AROMA 7/10   APPEARANCE 3/5   TASTE 8/10   PALATE 4/5   OVERALL 15/20
degbert (1661) - Austin, Texas, USA - MAR 20, 2015
Bottle. Pours a dark gold with some visible carbonation and a brief head. Nose is apple, spice, tropical fruit, and toast -- nicely aromatic, even cold. Very rich and sweet, though not as sweet as I expected; the spicy note continues, along with tropical and stone fruit. Apple tanginess keeps it from being cloying, though the sweetness is quite pronounced. Finish is warm and citric. Very, very good.
