UPDATED: JUL 31, 2023 Intense nose of ripe, red apples, sweet. Smooth flavors of apples with hints of candy sugar. Full body. Well hidden alcohol and a long, warming finish. berkshirejohn (9529) - Bracknell, Berkshire, ENGLAND - AUG 8, 2022
UPDATED: AUG 8, 2022 [375ml bottle of La Face Cachée de la Pomme Neige Ice Cider, Vintage 2006, bought in Quebec many years ago. ABV 12%. My 9000th rating.] A golden copper coloured pour with a ring of transparent bubbles; remarkably fresh red apple aroma with a hint of apple brandy; bittersweet apple taste with some toffee; and a long warming finish. Excellent. jjsint (7346) - Leicester, Leicestershire, ENGLAND - JAN 27, 2022
UPDATED: JAN 27, 2022 Bottle purchased from Amazon of all places and drunk at home. Dark gold, clear and flat. Sweet and boozy aroma with strong applesauce and cognac in the nose. Sweet taste, more apples and some sugary toffee, mulling spice. Orchard fruit tart notes appear the sumptous finish. No carbonation but it's got a thick, oily body. There's so much to this. alexsdad06 (17756) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - MAY 18, 2021
UPDATED: MAY 18, 2021 This is a backlog rating from 2008 from a bottle picked up in Michigan, from notes. When I had this beer it was average to below average for the style and not something I wanted to have again or I just didn't get back to my notes because of my technology at the time, work and/or family. Words to describe this beer are sweet malts, apples, apple juice with sugar added, warming but not boozy, without question this exceeds anything else that mentions the word cider. beerplace (8284) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - DEC 26, 2020

UPDATED: AUG 28, 2020 0,375 litre Bottle at home. Golden with no head. Apple, Caramel, sweetness, tart. Nice! MrBeerFanatic (1306) - Indianapolis, Indiana, USA - JUN 1, 2019
UPDATED: JUN 1, 2019 Shared bottle with wife at weekend to remember 5/31/19 at the marriot downtown indianapolis. Loves those fireworks from the hotel floor! Light honey whiskey color. Aromas apple pie, alcohol, slight barrel age, slight cinnomon. A complex ice cider. Interesting coming from just apples! Flavors apple pie, alcohol, wood, slight whiskey essense but not so much an impression. Smooth highly sweet and just darn delicious and different from any other wine. Much different from cider.

UPDATED: DEC 17, 2018 D'un superbe doré lumineux où de belle jambes sont visibles sur la paroi. Un nez de pommes mûres, de compote de pomme et de poires en conserve. Des saveurs fruitées plus que par la pomme et acidulées, accompagnées d'une belle amertume. C'est presque poivré, c'est sucré et ça goûte les fruits, en l'occurence la pomme et la poires, cuisinés.

Taster, thank you so much SinH. Nose is lots of candy apple, peach, pear, smells heavenly. Palate is the most intense apple and pear I have ever tasted. Sweet finish. what an unbelievably tasty treat. GDTRFB (8659) - Marblehead, Massachusetts, USA - FEB 25, 2018
Pours deep clear gold into a snifter. No head. Mackintosh apple juice aromas. Thick with hot sweet apple pie, cinnamon and dry biscuit. Strange and lovely.
