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.

mcberko (14102) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAR 17, 2015
2007 vintage. 375mL bottle, pours a cloudy opaque dark reddish brown with a tiny white head. Aroma is earthy, with dark apple skins, toffee and caramel. Flavour is strange -- very viscous and earthy, with toffee and brown sugar. Quite muffled and confused, but also quite nice. Not overly complex for an ice cider, but quite enjoyable. Nice stuff.

Ferris (12463) - Burnaby, British Columbia, CANADA - MAR 17, 2015
Bottle - Vintage 2007 - Overipe apples. Cloudy copper brown. Sweet Overipe apples, nice sweetness and a long finish. Not the rich syrup sweetness of Canada, but very pleasant.

jlruthven (607) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - MAR 4, 2015
Bottle, sampled out into mini-snifter glasses. Dark amber, fairly clear. Whiskey-like legs on the glass. Nose is pure liquid caramel apple, with touches of maple and vanilla. Massively sweet and viscous, reminds me of creme brûlée. Butterscotch finish. This was ridiculous.

apickles (436) - North Yorkshire, ENGLAND - FEB 3, 2015
Bottle direct from the cidery. Burnt orange in colour, no fizz or head. Very sweet on the nose with a little roasted smell. Very sweet with a slightly burnt taste. Very alcoholly apple juice in flavour. Leaves a little burn on the throat. Not particularly my thing but glad I tried it

Pours a dark brown caramel color with no head. Aroma is huge, very sweet, sticky, caramel, nutty, candied apple, green apple skins, tart, spice, vanilla, maple syrup. Taste is caramel, smoke, green apple, spicy, vanilla, maple syrup, nutty, thick. Crazy thick mouthfeel, very viscous. Overall a great change from normal stuff, worth the price tag to try once.

douglas88 (8339) - Portland, Oregon, USA - DEC 25, 2014
Small bottle from Beaumont. Pours a clear reddish copper color with no head of course. A big spicy apple nose, very much like a spiced cider. A oddly smoky flavor, like smoked candied apples, light spices, big sugary apples. Tartness at times, this is very much an apple pie brew. Very tasty. Not as big as others I’ve had. Nothing much to say besides that Ice Ciders are awesome. Winners every time in my book. Merry Christmas.
