Thanks to Ajax and Heather for this 4 oz. bottle. Clear yellow color, no head. Aroma is golden apples, pear juice and sugar. Flavor is very sweet and a direct reflection of the aroma. Syrupy and slick texture. Very sweet but completely fantastic. AdamChandler (5206) - Enfield, New Hampshire, USA - MAR 28, 2015
Small 4 ounce bottle, dark yellow nice legs. Smells insane. Sweet cherry, raspberry, persimmon and pear. Insanely sweet, high residual sugar content, I mostly get granny smith apple, pear, finish of raisins and currants. Martinus (4736) - Baarle-Nassau, NETHERLANDS - MAR 23, 2015
Clear warm golden colour. Aroma of apple, sweet apple, pie, bit spicy. Sweet apple flavour, treacle, syrup. Flat, quite viscous. Finish lingering apple, quite sweet, treacle. Nice. I’m quite a sucker for ice ciders.czar (9608) - Québec, Quebec, CANADA - JAN 6, 2015
(from 5cL miniature bottle @ ZBF 2014. Huge thanks for sharing, 77ships!)
2008 vintage. pours slightly hazy bright golden orange with some nice legssticking. caramelized apple pie, spicy cinnamon, bright red apple purée, very fruity - red berries, granulated citric sugar - found spreaded onto candies, candied sugar, hint of melon, woodsiness. flat carbonation, medium to full body - oily and sticky, very lightly tart and astringent and sweet toffee-woodsy finish. very good! kraddel (9327) - Antwerp, BELGIUM - DEC 8, 2014
Bottle 5 cl thnx to a canadian friend !
Pours clear blonde . Smell is thick, sweet applesauce, with a touch of wood almost . As if it had a perios of aging ( on the bottle , perhaps ? )
Taste is thick, gentle, sweet, bit sharp in the end . Sticky ( as it should be ) with a nice intensity . Yet another damn fine ice cider ....

Poured clear golden with no head. Aroma of sweet apple. Medium to full body, flavour is sticky apple, very, very nice. brokensail (16689) - Dublin, California, USA - MAY 7, 2014
Bottle @ 10K + OT. Thanks for the bottle, Steve. Still, clear golden pour. Tons of caramel, brown sugar, and apple pie. Fresh apple cider, slight acidic fruit, and a touch of lemon juice. Flavor is clean and simple. Lots of sweet apple juice/cider, apple pie, and brown sugar. Sweet caramel sauce and a touch of acidity on the finish. 77ships (11481) - Antwerpen, BELGIUM - APR 27, 2014
Thanks to tom10101 for this one! 5 cl. bottle, gorgeous packaging. Split with Martinus @ ZBF 2014. I am having a hard time describing ice ciders so far, I keep winding up with the same words. Pours a clear golden. Intense apple aroma, very sweet, lots of fructose and sugar in the nose, sweet spices, pie. Huge apple taste, explosively sweet, sticky sweet, cinnamon, apple pie, spices, very sweet apple sauce. Sticky, touch agave-feel to it. Mmmmm…..

Liquide doré limpide et plutôt pâlot. Un nez de jus de pommes alcoolisé et de fleurs printanières. Très bon goût sucré, apporté par une texture agréablement sirupeuse. Une acidité tranchante, qui donne l’impression de croquer dans une pomme pas assez mûre, nous rince le palais et s’tire longuement en arrière-goût. Bien plaisant ce liquide.

Nice glowing golden-orange body. Sticky sweet apples, light spice, and sugars. Medium bodied, assertive sweetness, muted finish that just takes a bit off the experience.
