UPDATED: JAN 14, 2017 Bottle at Schilling?s, finally my first Ice Cider -though probably not the best one. Golden color with no head. Aroma is intense apples, wood, vanilla. Taste is vanilla, apples, wild. No carbonation. Not the most amazing thing I?ve ever put in my mouth, but I can imagine some other Ice Ciders will be if they are complex :P luttonm (6661) - Seattle, Washington, USA - JAN 14, 2017
Bottle at Schilling Cider, Seattle. Heavy, honey yellow. No head. Funky apple skin and heavy nose. Spicy alcohol but dry, green apple skin. Tart bite. Quite sweet, touch astringency. Nice drink, but clearly the least interesting ice cider I’ve had. Alright. Heavy toffee, red apple sweet round body. daknole (11050) - Scottsdale, Arizona, USA - JAN 10, 2016
Yellow pour. Apple, honey, sweet upfront with a light tartness in the finish. Nice. BiiruBierBeer (1056) - Phoenix, Arizona, USA - JAN 6, 2016
Smell is apple cider and a bit of booze. Taste is apple juice, cider, and a tinge of alcohol. Not as rich as its French and Canadian counterparts. Medium body and very light carbonation with no foam and a very slight bit of booze heat. Oakes (18555) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - OCT 19, 2015
Golden colour. Mellow apple aroma. On the palate, it has a strong tannic character and a bitter apple finish. The sweetness is not nearly what you get from other ice ciders, only moderate. It’s a bit juicy, and the tannins lend balance. The body is fairly thick, though. I like it as a dessert cider, though expectations of ice cider richness won’t be rewarded.

Bottle @ home. Thanks, Jake. Clear golden pour with nice viscosity. Big sweet honey, apple, and maple notes. A hint of vanilla in there, too. Lighter on the acidity, unfortunately, but still enough to make this pleasant. Body is a little on the lighter side as well. Sort of makes it easier to drink, but not quite as lush and satisfying as the better examples. It has good fruit character, though, and is overall enjoyable. bhensonb (15624) - Woodland, California, USA - AUG 28, 2015
Corked bottle from Total Wine in Sacramento, CA. Pours gold with barely even bubbles. Aroma is apple and a lot of floral. Body is slick, almost a bit oily. Mostly sweet with a bit of apple skin tart. Not a trace of heat for me. Nice change. Ice ciders seldom come my way. slowrunner77 (12594) - Reno, Nevada, USA - JUL 31, 2015
$14 thin n tall bottle. Sweet apple aroma with hints of flowers. Flavor is much the same. Good, but not as deep or special as expected, especially at the price point. I’d love to try some of the better iced ciders, but usually don’t see em round here. fiulijn (21022) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAY 14, 2015

Yellow color. Semi-sweet cider, with moderate acidity, and definitively no depth typical of good Ice Ciders; given the high price tag (27 USD, 30 CAD), this is not an interesting product.
Bottle - Nice apple notes with lots of Apple peel. Clear gold. Lots of Apple peel and a dry finish. A bit boring and plain compare to the east coast, but OK.
