Like Adam and Eve, yield to the temptation of "La Grande Tentation", a light cider made from pure and natural apple juice from Ciderie Michele Jodoin. Steeped in the tradition of four generations of apple growers, Michel jodoin, in 1998m gave in to the temptation of making light cider using traditional methods. Since then, the entire production from his 4500 apple trees has been given over to make ciders of the highest quality. And now, the result of his labor can be yours! La Grande Tentation: sinfully delicious! Savour it cold, with or without ice, on all occasions.

Bottle. Pours a clear straw yellow with some soft white bubbles while pouring, that vanish immediately. Crisp, dull apple on the nose. Lightly sweet, but rather empty until a big tart kick comes through. Easy drinking but a little lackluster. Tasty enough though.

330ml clear bottle. Pours out a pale light yellow colour with no head, but with a promising constant steam of carbonation bubbles. Nose has cotton candy and a mix of sweet apple flesh and tart skins. Taste has quick tart and sharp apple skin notes, very minor fleshy sweetness. Dry end, clean, refreshing and basic craft cider.

(33 cl, SAQ) La robe du liquide n’a pratiquement aucune couleur. Le nez est bien frais et offre des parfums de pommes et des effluves de vin blanc qui sont sans prétention. Le goût des fruits est vivant, porté par une belle effervescence, touché peut-être par d’autres fruits. La finale est douce et acidulée : une belle façon d’aborder le repas du soir.

GT2 (9132) - San Diego County, California, USA - OCT 26, 2011
Tap at Paradiso Dupont. Pours clear white wine color with sparkling carbonation. Almost a perry like SRM. Very light yellow. Paler than straw. Nose is quite muted...some white wine acidity and mild ash/burning plastic character found in some white wines and champagnes. Taste is prickly, tart, pretty dry with high effervescence. Palate is lactic and phlegmy. Fairly dry and vinous. Small white wine vinegar and moderate saltiness. Gives this some character but still more like white wine than cider.

Sour, sour cider. Green apple aroma/flavour. Very pale yellow. Fairly sweet, a little syrupy.

Very pale straw yellow pour. The aroma is tart and a little bit fruity. There’s lots of fresh malice tartness and a nice apple skin character. Green apple, a bit of lemon and some nice, crisp dryness. Tasty and refreshing.

Great tart aroma of apples, and some floral honey notes. Flavor is very tart, and refreshing. A great sparkling cider, wonderful for a summer onthe golf course.

355ml bottle from my cider provider: HogTownHarry; Nose of tart green apples with only the tiniest hint of sweetness; pale gold with virtually no head, only a few bubbles which ring the glass; flavor is tart apples with only a tiny hint of sweetness in the finish.

Quite surprised to see this one rates so low. Very pale, pretty subtle aroma but what’s there is pretty nice. Lovely balance of light sweetness and clean acid. Appley without being too obvious. Nothing weird and very fresh-tasting. Real nice, lacking only in intensity.

Pours a crystal clear, light straw color. Minimal, cascading carbonation pools into a lightly fizzy surface. Looks thin in the glass. The nose is mundane, showing like seltzer water sweetened with apple juice and perhaps a drop of lemon. The flavor, too, fell short. Sugary sparkling water with faint sour apples and a touch of citrus is all that really comes through. The 6.4% is well hidden, but it feels like a sugary coverup more than anything else. Lightly syrupy body, with light carbonation. Clean, dry finish. Bland. This just doesn’t cut it for me on any level.
