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.

Bottle @ 10K + OT. Thanks again to Steve for this bottle. Slightly cloudy amber pour. Lots of butterscotch on the nose. Caramel, baked apple, and some slight cardboard/oxidation. Taste is typically sweet, but heavy on the butterscotch candies. Caramel sauce, baked apple, slight buttery pie crust, and light cardboard. A bit of sherry, too.

Bottle. Pours a clear copper body, completely still. Nose is raisins, prunes, oxidized apples and hints of wood. Taste is intense apple flavor with huge tones of prunes, sherry, dark fruits, wood and hints of toffee and brown sugar. Dense body. Not much pears to identify. Pretty nice, and very different.

Damico (2868) - Royersford, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 12, 2013
Pours darker, unclear amber with a smaller white head, almost no head really. Aroma brings some sweet caramel and apples, wow. The flavor is even better! It brings apples, butterscotch, and toffee. It is not overly sweet by any means, and no booze at all. The apples settle with a decent sweetness so nicely on the palate. Basically, it is a liquefied caramel apple, like at Halloween.

2006 Bottle from vbm. Slightly murky deep gold. Nose is apples and cinnamon, rich honey, earth, some mustiness. Flavor follows with lots of sweet Apple & honey, light acidity, medium caramel. Quite nice. Certainly not as intense as the Quebec ciders but way more drinkable.
