As a true ice cidre "Cidre de Givre" expresses with intensity the flavors of the apples from Domaine Etienne Dupont. It is derived from E. Dupont Cidre Bouche Brut 2005 by freezing it and then removing the frozen water.

gEUS (1676) - Linden, BELGIUM - MAY 3, 2016
small 375 ml bottle. Pours dark ruby-ish orange, no head. Intense tannin apple core and stewed apple in the aroma. Very nice and well balanced sweet-apple sour body and rich of tannins, taste is apple, sweet wine and white grapes. Wow, this is such a nice dessert wine/cider. P.S.: if RB puts ciders on its website, the step to wine is just very small (fruit sugars fermenting to alcoholic beverage). The gap between beers and ciders is bigger than that of ciders to wines... Just sayin’. To all beer aficionados hesitating to try wine - this is the perfect bridge between both. Don’t be afraid to try good wine :-).

375 (I think) corked and foiled tall skinny bottle. Pours a deep crystal clear crimson. Minimal head or lace. Big apple cough syrup nose. Sticky thick gooey body. Tastes and moves like apple cough syrup.

Ernest (7164) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - NOV 30, 2015
Bottle (2006 vintage). No head. Body is murky light brown. Aroma is notes of caramel, apple juice, apple butter, maple syrup, allspice. Flavor is heavily sweet, lightly acidic. Finish is moderately sweet, lightly acidic. Medium body, watery/syrupy texture, no carbonation, lightly to moderately alcoholic. Hard to get excited about this, even though I’m a pretty big fan of this ciderie. The aroma has some fun things but is mostly just sugary apple juice. In the mouth, it’s drinkable, but again mostly sweetness. Pretty underwhelming overall.

KennethArd (408) - Odense, DENMARK - SEP 16, 2015
Millesime 2006. Aroma of old apples & fudge. Clear amber/brown with no head. Intense sweetness & intense dryness at the same time. Medium body, sticky texture, flat carbonation & a very long finish.

SlovakSniper (4707) - Candiac, Quebec, CANADA - AUG 11, 2015
La robe est celle d’un jus de pommes à l’ancienne. Le nez offre des parfums de raisins et de pommes avec une richesse très modérée. Le goût montre des saveurs de pommes vieilles, acidulées et sucrées. Le liquide manque de stature. La finale est simplement sucrée. Pas une révélation mais agréable en fin de soirée.

Minderbinder (3173) - Québec, Quebec, CANADA - AUG 2, 2015
Sample. Pours hazy brown with no head. Some legs. Aroma is of browned apples, brown sugar, thawed ice cubes. Taste is of lots of brown sugar, "authentic" brown apple juice, sugar, alcohol, slight acidity. Palate: Full bodied. Sweet. Not feeling nice. Sticky. Overall: Not really well integrated. A bit messy. Sweet. Not bad but leagues away from the best stuff. Not really raffiné.

czar (7040) - Québec, Quebec, CANADA - JUL 20, 2015
sample. hazy if not cloudy dark amber pour with some legs stickin’ around. spicy and sweet caramel, maple syrup-based taffee, strawberries, baked spiced apple pie - cloves, cinnamon, nutmeg, etc.; caramelized almonds, woodsy if not woody character, citrus peel with its welcoming tartness, clean yeast, flat carbonation, medium to full body - oily; lightly tart and woodsy-spicy finish. very spicy ice cider - unique.
