Corked bottle, as Domaine des Salamandres Poiré de Glace Cuveé Controverseé, vintage 2013
Amber color. Wonderful aroma of caramelized pineapple pie. Sweet, thick and luscious; the acidity is a bit too moderate, it has interesting notes of caramelized sugars, fruit cake; very nice, not as complex as the best ones but still excellent.

Bottle - Vintage 2013 - Cooked sweet fruit and a touch of tropical fruit. Clear gold. Sweet and fruity, light pear and a long sweet finish. The lack of acidity makes this great to drink without food.

2013 vintage. 200mL bottle, pours a hazy golden with no head. Aroma brings out toffee, caramel, and baked pears. Flavour is quite soft, with notes of stewed pears, caramel, and toffee. Medium sweetness, with only a touch of alcohol burn. Complex and vanilla-y on the finish. No acidity. Excellent.

Sample. Clear bright deep gold pour. Aroma is really perfumy, tons of floral honey notes, clover honey, pineapple, rotten apples, pear, very floral. Taste is sweet, tons of pineapple juice, honey, just super pineapple forward. Palate is med-full bodied, sweet with light booziness in the end. Very strange one, good but not something I’d actively seek out again.

pours clear bright gold and showing its sexy legs. bright juicy and tender ripened pears, pineapple, just-rightfully ripened banana slice, honey sweetness and woodsy character - mead-like qualities; spices, little to no acidity. flat carbonation, medium-full body - oily; sweet if not a bit cloying and spicy finish. excellent ice perry - best i’ve had to date.

Un verre de 2 onces. Une robe cuivrée avec des jambières. Des arômes et des saveurs sucrés, fait de poires confites et de sucre caramélisé. Une pointe d’épices et une fantomatique acidité. Un corps gras et collant. Une finale douce et légèrement chaude. Très riche.

How: 2 oz sample from bottle (200 ml) at home. 2013 harvest. Bought at Domaine des Salamandres.

>>> A wonderfully complex Ice Perry that reminded me of Sauternes.

+ Deep golden color leaving massive sticky legs on the glass
+ Aroma is a burst of pears and caramelized sugars
+ The taste gets even better with noble rot, white grapes and oak spiciness in addition to the pears and caramelized sugars
+ Mouthfeel is thick and oily
+ There’s a nice warmth in the finish, never burning
+ The mouth coating sweetness envelop the palate until a moderate acidity break it leaving a freshness impression

Flavors: Noble rot, pears, white grapes, caramelized sugars, oak spiciness

Small bottle shared by drewbeerme. Thanks, dude. Pours a richly amber hazy pour, a bit darker, with a touch of haziness, mellow dying haze. Aromas are rich, offering rich sweetness, honey and apple, richer honey, some apple, some bready malts. Richer sweetness, kiss of cinnamon. Initial is thicker, firm body, big sweetness. Big pear, apple, sugary malts. Fruit, some vanilla, big sweet fruit sugars, honey. Bigger sweetness, backend remains a touch peary, apple, honey. Some tannic element, but too sweet leading in. Meh. Solid rich flavors but too much for me.

UPDATED: JUN 22, 2013 Bottle shared by Drew. Thanks! Pours a deep golden, near orange. Still. Nose is fruity. Pears, light acidity, honey. Moderate floral quality as well. On tasting, more muted, less acidic than it’s compatriots. A bit more one dimensional. Shows a distinct pear profile but lacks the richness and complexity of the others. Still really nice overall. Re-tasted at the source. More smoky with a phenolic note, similar to English country cider or basque sidra. Interesting but the long tree life brings. In some wild funk that muddies it up. (Winter harvest, frozen on the tree)
