Bottle. Pours a nice clear amber colour. Aroma of caramel and cooked apples. Tastes of sweet apple, butterscotch, with an alcohol burn in the finish. Nice full body, due to all that sugar. Very tasty! notalush (5955) - Lakewood, Colorado, USA - JAN 1, 2012
Huge thanks to adneilsen for sharing - clear copper pour - aroma of spice, overripe apple, alcohol warmth - quite similar to the premiere, but without the bracing acidity to balance the fairly syrupy sweetness - the flavor is quite nice, once again much like distilled essence - the sweetness is quite high, so it could use a little more balance, but it is still tasty and truly unique. arminjewell (9727) - East Lansing, Michigan, USA - JAN 1, 2012
Bottle pour with Aaron hooking it up big time. 2006 275 mL bottle pour is clear red, no head, aroma has notes of green sour apples, some caramel, biscuit, buttery, hints of candied apple in there as well, wow what a treat of an aroma, brings some alcohol as well. Taste is a nice mix of sweet cooked, candied and caramel apple, butterscotch, some hints of alcohol, finishes very sweet. Nice! cubs (10740) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - JAN 1, 2012

Alex (fiulijn) got me enough to rate. ENORMOUS thanks! Poured a lovely full golden body. The nose was marzipan punschrullar, chocolate and apples. Wow! Sweet taste but not overly so. Marzipan, chocolate, apple, some vague typical cider funk in the background. Rosewater? Shit this is good. More than I expected! yespr (48915) - Copenhagen O, DENMARK - SEP 8, 2011
From bottle as Neige Éternelle, courtesy of fiulijn. Pours clear and golden orange, no head. Light curtains on the glass when swirled. Aroma is dense apples, sweet, light sugarish and with a mild acidic touch. Mild citric, sweet, dense apple and smooth. Velvet. Goes into a sweet, smooth and yet light crisp citric touch into the finish. fiulijn (21506) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - SEP 5, 2011

Pefect balance of sugars and acids.

Gold color; it pours viscous. Deep, warming aroma of apples and stewed apples, with light citrus acidity, English apple pie, mature pineapple, and a trace of hazelnuts. Thick body, velvety mouthfeel; powerful and syrupy apple juice flavor, with just accents of caramelization; there is a high acidity that perfectly balances the sugars, a touch of pineapple too, and the delicate fruitiness of ripe strawberries; complex and balanced. The final is warming, sweet, acidic, long.
Sampled from the bottle. Poured a clear deep golden yellow with no head whatsoever. Aroma was full of sweet apples giving a bit of baked/candied apple note with a hint of backing caramel. Flavor began was intensely sweet throughout with baked and candied apples, yet still reminded me of fresh apples. A bit syrupy on the tongue. madsenbryg (371) - Holstebro, DENMARK - JAN 3, 2011
