4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottled, from Systembolaget. Clear golden, miniscule head. Concentrated rich aroma of ripe apples. Fairly sweet with full body and soft mouthfeel. Rich and gentle with balsamic concentrated multifaceted apple flavours. Very harmonious, and certainly with lots of Ice Cider character. Heads and shoulders ahead of the competitors I am aware of in Sweden when it comes to complexity, richness and harmony in a cider.
Clear golden colored with no head.
Sweet aroma of apples and dried appes.
Fruity flavor of apples, oak and dried apples.
Tart finish. jfb (7274) - GERMANY - DEC 19, 2017

Bottle. Pale golden. Broad sweet applepie nose, old pear. Medium body, fairly dry and wonderfully sparkling. Citric, good broad apple notes, some winter spices, light almond and prune, indeed a apple-champagne. Lovely! SinH4 (7034) - Garching b. MÃ¼nchen, GERMANY - DEC 19, 2017
Bottle, many thanks Nische! Clear golden color with white head. Aroma is red apples, apple skin, a touch mealy, apple pie, gummibears. Taste is cinnamon, apple cake, rich red apples, honey, gummibears. Warming, yet dry finish with champagnesque yet small-bubbled carbonation. A winter Cider, perfect! And really tasty and dense.

Bottle. Clear golden body with lively carbonation with just a trace of a white head that disappears right away. Aroma of dry apple, apple core and some kind of woody cellar notes. Flavor is medium sweet, tart apples, some acidity, wood, ripe apple and apple juice. Fine balanced body with a dry and slightly acidic finish and quite concentrate apple flavor. Feels a bit raw, but in a pleasant way, probably not a cider for everyone, but certainly some good qualities here. Sigmund (8151) - Tau, NORWAY - NOV 7, 2017
375 ml clear bottle, as Brännland P. Pernilla. Perle., from Vinmonopolet Kvadrat., at a stiff price. ABV is 8.5%. Golden colour, pours moderately sparkling with a very thin and shortlived white head. Moderate but pleasant aroma of ripe apples. Semi-sweet flavour of ripe dessert apples and somewhat concentrated apple juice. Very good. OminouSC2 (1045) - Mora, SWEDEN - OCT 18, 2017
Pale golden color, minimal white head. Aromas of apples, yeast, vanilla and apple sauce. Sweet and slight tart taste with apples, alcohol, slight citrus and vinous hints. Dry mouthfeel with a light sweet finish. anstei (2848) - Zurich, SWITZERLAND - SEP 19, 2017
UPDATED: SEP 19, 2017 Bottle from Le Millesime. Pours clear golden. Aroma is sweet apple, dried apple, pear, honey, jam. Body is medium, intensely sweet, lightly boozy, with a low but fizzy carbonation. Dense and oily cider texture. Overripe apple flavours, honey again. Long but dry palate. Quite intense for a cider, but still balanced. Partly feels like an ice cider. Good!
