UPDATED: JUL 13, 2014 Bottle shared by my Dad, crisp and rich apple. Banging ass drink. Had it before but a nice 5 year old tick now. We’ll take it.

Bright golden pour. The aroma is rich and sweet with notes if baked apple. A sharp acidity balances rich sweetness and a warming finish. Rich and fruity but not the most complex example I’ve come across.

It’s Pinnacle’s 2005 Reserve Ice Cider. 12% Bottle that was a gift from my folks, thanks! Drunk to celebrate St-Jean with some apple pie & vanilla ice cream. Served in a champagne flute. It pours a glowing amber color and has a potent sweet apple, almost apple blossom aroma with some booziness and even notes of candy caramel. Soft silky smooth mouthfeel and full body. Tart apple flavor, peppery, sweet, sugary, juicy apple taste and a slow burning warmth going down your throat. Paired with the vanilla ice cream that vanilla and creamy character is accented with the ice cider comes off softer and more delicately. Paired with the pie you get more spice out of the cider, lots of heat and caramel very piquante. I had no idea a cider could be so complex.

Poured at co-ops grape escape. Pours a clear bright golden orangish with tiny effervescent bubbles. Aroma of apples, tart and sweet combined with a cobbler like finish. Taste is tart apples up front turning sweet apples, honey, pears and brown sugar. Mouthfeel is slick and oily with with a medium low carbonation but a great complexion of flavors.

2006 bottle that was a gift from "hannont". Colour...clear, deep gold. Nose...brimming with sharply tart apple skins and apple cobbler. Palate...a quick sharp hit of super tart apples, with apple leaf, honey and steeped apple flesh. The back of the palate is nicely tangy with hints of dry earth and tea.

Sa couleur dorée et limpide inspire confiance. Il y a de minuscules bulles en grande quantité dans mon verre. C’est de la compote de pomme qui me vient à l’esprit lorsque je me l’approche du nez. Ça sent la pomme mûre et la pomme cuisinée. Ça picote lors de passage en bouche. Une forte acidité accompagne le côté sucré. C’est suret et ça tâtonne le devant du palais. Cuvée 2010 (1030-060314)

Bottle (375 ml). 2010 harvest. Clear bright golden/orange-ish. Aroma is of sweet apples with brown sugar notes, sweetness and pear. Taste is moderately(for an Ice Cider) / heavily sweet with sweet apples, brown sugar, pears and hints of red fruits. Medium body. Oily. Not as thick as some other Ice Ciders. Quite complex and not too sweet for the style. Very good!

Thank you Tommy for sharing this one! My first Ice Cidre. 2010 Harvest

A - Gorgeous bronze / gold appearance. this cider really shines.

S - The most concentrated ripe apple puree and skins I’ve ever smelled. Notes of cherry, blackberry and pear as well.

T - The taste is amazing. Brandy or maybe rum liquor. Concentrated intense Apple. Loads of sweet dessert tastes, roasted apples, lots of sweet sugar and a big of peaches in syrup as well.

M - Very slick, very thin intense residual sugar.

O - This is absolutely incredible. I should join RateCider.

Pours a nice and still golden, it also sticks to the side of the glass to give a nice "dentelle" effect. Aroma is of cooked/cooking apples, pretty straight-forward. Taste is of reduced apple juice and brown sugar/simple syrup impressions. A nice acidity clears the palate and leave you wanting for more (never cloying). Mouthfeel is sticky, the drink itself not too heavy. Really nice!

2010. Opened August 2013. Clear golden body. Bright sweet-apples, light carmelized sugar and honey. Straightforward profile that is intense, assertive, and enjoyable. Moderate sweetness.
