Amber color. Wonderful aroma, apples, apple skins, apple pie, but with a nice freshness, and citrusy touch. Sweet flavor, with a tartness that reminds apricots, some stewed apples, quite high acidity. Aggressive, yet lovely.
Appreciated, probably most for its power than its elegance. Wonderful.
Bottle @ Miss January / AA Meeting Afterparty Tasting, March 2012. Pours clear copper amber with bubbles on top. Sweet. A bit of honey, red apples, oak and syrup. Sticky and oily. Smooth and really dry. Lovely drink. Lubiere (14151) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - FEB 17, 2012
A golden lightly rosed coloured ice cider, viscous, with aroma of apple puree and light tropical fruits. In mouth, a nice and smooth sweet apple candy, green apples, and light pineapples. Tasted at Mondial des Cidres de Glaces, Feb. 11 2012. robinvboyer (4754) - Sturgeon Falls, Ontario, CANADA - JAN 22, 2012
Quite dark, looks like bourbon. Nice tart apple aroma. Light honey, also quite floral. Mouthfeel is a tad thin, and the finish is a little tart and not as sweet as expected. GRM (4178) - Aylmer, Quebec, CANADA - JUL 9, 2011

Pours a dark gold color. Pleasant and appealing aroma of baked apples, vanilla and honey. Very good flavor of baked apples, vanilla and honey, it’s sweet of course, but the sweetness is well balanced. The body is medium and liquorous. This is a solid ice cider.

Bottle (@ The Glasshouse, Kew, Greater London) Clear, orangey-golden coloured; solid aromas of sweet apples, almonds, and caramel in the nose; solid sweet flavour, but not sticky at all, full bodied, silky; solid sweet-fruity finish (honey, caramel and so on...) balanced by a fine tarness. Great experience.....
