Bottle pour in Seattle, thanks Andrew. Even though I actually procured this bottle. Surprisingly dark amber gold, clear and thick. Intense honey and a pinch of alcohol. Intensely flavorful nectar. An earthy, actual granola flavor with some caramel sugar. This one in particular is reminiscent of mead. A very nice treat, but not my favorite example of style.

A dark golden cider with aroma of beautiful apple jam, light maple, alcohol warmth, very nice and smooth. In mouth, a beautiful complex mix of cooked apple jam, light maple, light acidity, alcohol warmth, nice and enticing. Bottle at Lautre oeil.

At home. Bottle shared by Maakun, thanks for a first taste of ice cider! Clear golden, no head. Sweet apple syrup, honey, nutmeg, moss, apple skin, light brandy boozy. Big sweet. Full body, sticky thick and oily smooth. Very low carbonation. Big long delicate sweet finish. Powerful sweet and deep aroma, very nice.

[email protected] Thank You mjs! Sweet, pure apple extract. Thick and full bodied. I have never had a cider like that. Feels like a apple liqueur.

375 ml bottle poured. 2012 vintage. Huge thanks to mcberko for the bottle. This totally exceeded every expectation I had for ice ciders. Golden pour. Smooth apple, cinnamon and honey heavy aroma. Thick body, syrupy, complex apple and honey flavor. Smooth apple sauce like finish, with an endless apple spice linger. Glad this coincidentally landed on a milestone rate. This stuff is a magic potion. Loved it.

[2012] 50ml bottle. Clear golden amber. Flavors are cooked/caramelized apples, juicy apple flesh/peel, cinnamon and alcohol with citrusy notes. Mild tartness. Medium body, slick texture.

375ml bottle (300e of overpriced beer tasting) - thanks mjs!
Apple and booze aroma. Apple everywhere, some core bitterness there too. Very boozy at every step. Harsh and sharp, yet sugary on the lips too. Has no drinkability at all, and even lacks sipability.
