COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Characteristics
- Unparelled richness
- Inimitable complexity... made from a blend of many apple varieties, including rare heritage apples
- Warm caramel and baked apple flavour
- Made in limited quantities... each bottle is uniquely numbered and hand-signed
- A naturally made ice cider... without added sugar or alcohol

Serving Suggestions
Due to its richness and concentration of flavours, we recommend serving Signature on its own, as a digestif. It also pairs exceptionally well with blue-veined or aged cheese and orchard fruit or nut-based desserts.

grandgenie (259) - gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - JAN 28, 2011
bouteilles 1840 de 5000 produites en 2008. Acheté 37.50$ à la SAQ du casino et dégusté dans des verres de cidre mystique avec glandine. Apparence de couleur orangé cuivré laissant de grosses coulisses sur le verre. Arômes délicats de miel de fleur sauvage, de pomme cuites au four et de pelure de pomme. Goût exquis et fruité. le tout est en équilibre avec une longue finale laissant découvrir malgré le sucré, une amertume légère. Une belle réussite, bravo!

Bottle shared by footbalm, I’m 90% that this is the correct entry, these ice ciders are confusing. Anyway, thanks Eric a 2007 version 7225/8000. Pours a clear yellow with a thick legs running down the glass. The aroma is massive sweet apples. The flavor is just like crack; syrup, and apples, warm with a nice thick mouthfeel. I love these drinks.

JorisPPattyn (7796) - Antwerpen, BELGIUM - MAY 1, 2010
Darker copper-golden liquid. Old, wrinkled apples, full of sugars from last summer. Sweet apples with just a hint of sourishness in the mouth. Touches of old sherry, if sweeter. Viscous, oily, oozing alcohol. Another excellent cidre de glace. Thanks to Dany for bringing me another of these rare gems.

Bottle shared by ygtbsm94 on 7/3/09: Pours a transparent viscous orange amber with nice thick legs. Has a fresh fruity apple nose with a good balance of crisp tartness with a hint of oak. Starts with good fullness and sweet caramely apples with a great tart balance before a crisp sweettart finish. Well-balanced and enjoyable with good complexity throughout.

BQ2010. Sampled in the Domaine Pinnacle Tasting Room. Pours a clear body resembling apple juice. Aroma is sweeter than the original ice cider. Flavor is amazing - incredible mouthfeel. Sweet apples, candy, fruit, and caramel. Tried with crackers, cheese, and onion jam. Delicious.
