2018-01-07. Crisp dark amber body is headless, light syrupy legs. 3+ Aroma has light alcohol, sugary, sweet apple. Hints of oxidation around the edges. Flavour has a very nice balance of sweet sugary apple with light acidity. Tart edges, nice apple character. 8++ Smooth full bodied palate, no carbonation. 4+ The first sip was underwhelming but it grows on me quite a bit, becoming more nuanced and balanced as it goes. Lovely. 7/3-4/8-9/4+/17+ 2012 Vintage bottle purchased from Mondial de Cidre 2015, Montreal.

The cider is a fairly light amber color. Clear and bright. No head. Big caramel and apple. Lots of honey. Quite sweet in an entirely delicious way. Big apple with mild tartness giving it a depth of flavor. Smooth and full body. Very tasty stuff. ineedbeer (2336) - Oakland, California, USA - JUL 16, 2016
UPDATED: JUL 16, 2016 Poured from a 375 ml bottle, vintage 2012. Thanks Tom10101! Aroma is apples, rich caramel, some faint toffee. Light spice notes with hints of stone fruit. Light tannins. Pours a golden color with no head. Sheets of alcohol and long legs with no lacing. Flavor is very sweet with nice red apple notes and hints of green apples and light tannins. Moderate spice notes with lighter hints of tropical fruit and touches of citrus. Light alcohol notes adding a bit of spice as well. More green apple notes in the finish with some caramel. Mouthfeel is full bodied with no carbonation. No astringency or alcohol warmth. Overall, a nice ice cider. It?s hard to compare after a night of beer, but this one seems really good. Nice caramel note with a lot of apple complexity. Hints of other fruits with a decent spice note.

Corked bottle, vintage 2012Golden color. Less apple aroma than other Ice Ciders, and some more acidity. The body is almost syrupy, very sweet; nice apple flavour, but not much depth, and moderate acidity.callmemickey (4561) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 27, 2015
Very good, as usual, but a bit cloying in the big picture.
