Bottle shared. Copper pour with a fair bit of sediment that got stirred up as we poured, some glasses were cloudy. Aroma of peach, apricot, ripe apples, light spice, alcohol. Taste is sweet, caramel, lots of stone fruit, apricot, pear, mild alcohol warmth on the finish, baked apples. Palate is round pretty full bodied, nice sticky texture. Nice offering.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle @ Mondial des Cidres de Glace 2015. Rating of the 2010 vintage. Slight rose color. Very sugary and maple syrup forward. A bit of apple skins and sweet caramel sauce. This particular cider really lacked any of the normal acidity and is more just sweet and sugary. A lot of caramel, apple pie filling, and brown sugar.

4.5 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 19/20
Bottle... This ice cider rocks!… Pours amber and clear. Leaves a nice coating around the glass but no legs. Smells like baked, cinnamon-spiced apples. Full-bodied with a velvety mouthfeel. The flavor offers loads of savory sweet apples and wonderful malic acid. Best of both worlds - sweet and sour. Lingering, silky-buttery finish. Many thanks to MartinT for sharing another world class ice cider from French Canada!

2008 vintage bottle sampled at Mondial des Cidres de Glace 2014 with Linh, Minh and Angela. Pours a golden body. Aroma is apple pie, apple sauce, honey, light maple and faint alcohol character. Mouthfeel is medium to full with similar notes coming through on the palate. Nice.

Bottle (375 ml). 2009 Harvest. Thanks Alex! Clear bright golden/orange. There’s a lot of sweetness in the aroma with a bright apple presence, brown sugar and peaches/apricots presence. Taste is also very sweet with caramel, brown sugar, apricots, pears. Nice acidic presence too. Thick body. Liquorous. Very complex. One of the sweetest Ice Cider I’ve had so far.

Bottle. Lovely deep orange hue. Aroma is sweet fresh apples and skins, cooked sugars, quince. Sticky sweet apple fruit up front, leading into a sugary simple-syrup middle, but ending with a tart apple skin acidity that carries some nuances tropical fruits. A bit of a mixed bag, but certainly very delicious.

Corked bottle at Canoe Restaurant, Toronto
Beautiful amber color. Deep aroma, somehow different from the other ice ciders; very fruity, with mature apples, some acidity, and a light biscuits note; very light acetic too. Very sweet but possibly less syrupy than expected; excellent flavor of mature apples, moderate acidity; distinctively from others, it doesn’t have the same sugary feeling and stewed apples, but it has a very light and pleasant astringency.
