Minderbinder (2339) - Québec, Quebec, CANADA - APR 27, 2015
Sample. [2005] Pours light brownish with no head. Some legs. Aroma is of strong apples, cow shed floor, alcohol, hay. Taste is of alcohol, sugar, tartness, some acidity. Apples. Palate: Full bodied. No carbonation. Well balanced. Warming alcohol. Overall: Very good. A fine sipper. Just a tad burning.

JulienHuxley (3936) - Trois-Rivières, Quebec, CANADA - APR 27, 2015
2 oz from bottle (375 ml). Harvest 2005. Bottle 237 / 2200. Clear brown copper pour. Aroma is super rich, very inviting caramelized apple, liquory apple aroma, tons of caramel, really rich and complex sweet caramelized fruit aromas, oak, vanilla, very nice. Taste is sweet, many layers of sweet apple butter, apple caramel, candied fruit, subtle woodiness that adds a ton of complexity. Palate is rich, full bodied, liquory, gentle warming alcohol. Sublime.

2 oz from bottle (375 ml). Harvest 2005. Bottle 237 / 2200.

Appearance: Deep dark copper with beautiful and plentiful legs.

Aroma: Not an overpowering nose, but a superb balance between baked apples, brown sugar, oak (lot of oak for an Ice Cider!), spices and light alcohol presence.

Taste: Moderately sweet with a sharp acidic presence, lots of oak, brown sugar, warming alcohol, mild spiciness (cinnamon, nutmeg) and light vanilla notes.

Palate: Full body. Thick and a bit syrupy mouthfeel. Quite oaky and bit tannic. Sweet lingering finish with light cinnamon and nice warmth from the alcohol.

Overall: The long oak aging process gives this one a really unique profile. The oak really shine which is quite uncommon for an Ice Cider, even for those who are barrel-aged (like Neige Réserve). Extremely flavorful and tasty while still being totally cohesive. Nice balance between the sweetness, the acidity and the oak. One of my favorite Ice Cider so far.

Pour courtesy of James. Pours a clean amber. Nose is wax candy, apple, 2x4. Syrupy, sweet. Nice apple flavor. Not very boozy. I’m an ice cider virgin but this is delicious

jredmond (5949) - Manhattan, New York, USA - FEB 17, 2014
Bottle sampled at Mondial des Cidres de Glace 2014 with Linh, Minh and Angela. $8 for a 3oz sample. Pours a deep, deep amber body with no lacing. Aroma consists of a nice variety of fruit in addition to apple - lychees, peach, maybe some mango and dried dark fruit; however all fruit flavors surrender to the oak character. Mouthfeel is full, rich and syrupy with the oak character coming through above all else; additional flavors of dried peach, apple sauce, cinnamon, wood, light acidity and honey. One of my favorites of the festival.

Aroma : Caramel and some acidic apples. Fresh apple flesh.

Dickinsonbeer (5076) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - JAN 9, 2011
Mondial 2010. Pours a rich deep honey golden with big thick viscous legs. Aroma is big with maple syrup, caramelized apples, thick dark apple cider with lots of red skins, tannin, earth, apple pie spice, leaves, and lychee fruit. Flavor is more lychee, earth, nutty yeast, light wood, shaved oak and dust, big caramel apple, cider, honey, apple pie, with a decent cutting acidity in the end which only cuts through about half of the syrupy waxiness left of the tongue and teeth. Good stuff.
