3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
A pink cider with an aroma strong with apples, but also with notes of berries. The flavor is like a sparkling apple sodapop. Quite nice.

2.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Pink-copper colour. Very spritzy. Fresh apple aroma with some light tannins. Sweet & sour character. A little bit of rotten character though. This roughness and the overt tartness without accompanying complexity makes it a tough one to get into.

Rosé cider with a burst of white head, dissipating quickly. Apple and strawberries in aroma. Sour puckering apples with apple peels. Light and refreshing. Tasted Spring 2006.

Again those Geneva apples, this time in the Pédoncule line of sparkling ciders...Aroma is not its best feature, and the watery pink appearance does not attract me as well...Lightly sweet pomegranate notes melds with the Geneva apple pulp...Ample carbonation seems to help the flavor cohesion, this is pretty interesting...

Bottle, shared with my wife and the Josephsons. Light pink, crystal clear, medium-fine carbonation. Aroma is fresh crisp apples, light must. Flavour is sweet fresh apples, carbonation is lively, finish is medium-dry. Not terribly complex, but as an aperitif it was nice, light and refreshing.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Sampled from the bottle. Poured a clear ruby red with visible carbonation and no head whatsoever. Aroma was sweet with apples but balanced by a bit of a crab apple note. Flavor was more tart throughout with a good amount of acidity.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pinkish, clear, lightly sparkling. Dryish crabapple nose. Woody, sweet with wet cave notes. Rocky dryness. Distinctive palate, initially sweet and floral, developping rosewater reminiscent flavors. A bit on the sweet side, but great overall balance if a bit short-flavored. Light bodied, good sparkling body. Great stuff.

Bottle at the tasting room
Nuts, tart apple, very balanced sweet/tart. No alcohol notes detected here and a creamy zesty thing happening under my tongue.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
(750ml bottle) Purchased at La Trappe à Fromage in Gatineau, QC. First off - the cork blew off and almost killed the host; it thin proceeded to spew its contents all over Lubiere’s back deck; the could only have been 1/2 the bottle remaining after the disaster. I hope Jodoin offers me a new bottle!! Pours a pink head with a peachy-red body. Nose is sweet and crisp. Very fresh apples swish around one’s mouth with a grand and balanced sweet and tartedness. Nicely carbonated - as with most Jodoin products - yet not a lot of flavour. The carbonation however is wildly exciting and worth the $17.99 price tag.
