Made from McIntosh apples. Dry cider aged in oak barrels for two years. Ancestral artisan quality with a tang of the Rougemont soil, enriched by the Jodoin family’s closely-guarded secrets. Fresh and harmonious aroma of apples with a long finish. A marvelous companion for strong cheese, such as Bleu. Excellent with pork, poultry, fish, and cold cuts. Very pleasant aperitif.

Minderbinder (2693) - Québec, Quebec, CANADA - JUL 9, 2015
Sample. Pours very clear blond/greenish with no head. Aroma is of apples, rubber, alcohol. Taste is of apples, tartness, alcohol, acidity, white wine. Palate: Medium body. Warming alcohol. No carbonation. Nice balance. Overall: Lots of alcohol, refreshing. Not too heavy. Fine. Reminiscent of gewurztraminer.

4 oz sample. Very pale yellow pour, still. Nice fruity apple aroma, pear, white wine, light winey alcohol notes, light tropical fruits. Taste is semi-sweet, nice apple flavor, quite boozy, white wine like, fruity flavors. Palate is med-light bodied with nice alcohol warmth. Quite tasty, better than I was expecting.

4 oz sample from bottle (750 ml). 2013 harvest.

Appearance:Clear pale yellow-strew color with little alcohol legs.

Aroma: Green apples, light sweetness and a touch of oak.

Taste: Juicy green apples along moderate acidity, little to no sweetness and oak notes.

Palate: Medium body. Semi-dry to dry finish. Alcohol shows up a bit in the finish (nice warmth).

Overall: Tasty cider. Alcohol is well hidden until the "finish". The oak aging gives an interesting result. Really feels like green apples were used, but it’s made from McIntosh. Well crafted!

mathieuc (2355) - Québec, Quebec, CANADA - MAY 29, 2015
Pours an ultra clear pale yellow with some legs. Nose is of fresh apple cider and light alcohol. Taste is lightly sweet, of apple juice and that’s about it. Alcohol content is conceiled quite expertly. Body is light to medium, completely still and feeling juicy. Overall a fun strong hard cider, not something I tend to drink usually but this one felt well-made enough.

jredmond (6517) - New York, New York, USA - MAY 22, 2015
Bottle sampled at Mondial 2015 with Linh, Ken and Nica. Pours a light body with light bubbles. Mouthfeel is thin and dry with notes of dry wine, bitter apple skins, pepper, light yeast, spice and perfume.

DuffMan (8198) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - DEC 26, 2011
Bottle, vintage 2007. Medium golden, rather lackluster carbonation. Aroma is musty apples with notes of honey. Flavours of browned apples, cork, light toast, and wax. For a cider that weighs in at 12% ABV this came across as surprisingly thin and almost watery. Lacking in body and complexity. Disappointing, especially considering the price point.

JMFG (1587) - Florida, USA - DEC 7, 2008
Courtesy TheCheeseMan. Very light almost clear pour, no head. Light pear notes, mild malic acidity on aroma. Slightly sweet taste, but dry on the finish. Very light apple notes overall, but nice.

Tasting at Backus’ Backyard Bash. Thanks to the Cheeseman for the taste! Clears pale yellow pour. Nice dry apple and pear aroma. Slightly tangy apple, pear and just a touch of brown sugar. Very smooth and delicious, but seemed to be missing something.
