COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

darkguardian (725) - Florida, USA - MAR 18, 2010
375ml bottle. Pours flat with a lovely amber hue. Nose is brandy, wood and of course apples. Flavor is apple brandy with a little complexity from the apples but its lacking depth. Woody flavor with some light tartness up front. Finishes very sweet and with a full viscous body. A decent iced cider but there is definitely better out there.

MPA (848) - Amager (form. Nørrebro&Aalborg), DENMARK - DEC 25, 2009
2006 vintage. Amber with off white head. Apple aroma with pie and paestry. Interesting. Sweet flavour of sugar, honey and apple.

hotstuff (4353) - Indiana, USA - OCT 31, 2009
Bottle and the ABV on the label is 7.2%. Medium sized head and a transparent/slightly hazy orange brown body. The aroma is apples and caramel. The flavor is sweet, bitter, sour, tart, apples, and a dry finish. The mouthfeel is smooth, syrupy, sticky, dry and this is a medium bodied ice cider. Overall, easy to drink, not overly apple tasting IMO, not too sweet tasting, worthy of a try, and I would drink this again.

LilBeerDoctor (3507) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 12, 2009
Bottle. Pours a murky orange/brown with no head. Aroma of buttery apples, general sweetness. Flavor of sweet apples, vanilla, caramel, toffee, and oak. Very nice and sweet, easy drinking (for an ice cider). Excellent! 8/4/8/4/15 [3.9/5]

Rustyham (1754) - St. Petersburg, Florida, USA - OCT 4, 2009
This is fantastic- certainly the thickest, darkest, most opaque cider I have ever had. It smells like a an apple brandy and tastes like apple butter. Thick as a nectar and very cloudy, like a hot caramel- apple cider color. Fantastic vintage 2006 bottle from Knightly Spirits in Orlando, Florida.

Legato (15) - USA - OCT 4, 2009
Felt like drinking apple sauce. It had a velvet texture and the flavor did not last long on palate. Overall the experience was excellent.

thedm (4998) - Fort Wayne, USA - AUG 24, 2009
This bottled brew from a bottle shop poured a medium sized head of ivory colored bubbles that were long lasting and left behind a slightly hazy brown orange colored body. The strong aroma was of old red apples. The mouth feel was thick initially with a smooth dry vinous aftertaste. The sweet dry flavor contained notes of old red apples. A decent one that I would consider buying again. Although the flavor came off to me as old, it was still quite good and not at all bad.

Clear medium orange color with virtually none head. Aroma is apple, wood, rubber notes. Flavor is moderate to heavy with a long duration. Body is medium, texture is oily - syrupy, carbonation is flat. [20090321]

DSG (6534) - Tel Aviv, ISRAEL - MAY 17, 2009
UPDATED: AUG 16, 2010 Re-rate 6/7/10: Bottle sample at a tasting. Thanks zvikar. Vintage 2007. 7.5%. Tasted about a week or two after the bottle was opened. According to other raters it tasted pretty much the same as on the day it was opened. 7/4/7/3/14=3.5

Bottle. Vintage 2006. 7%. Clear golden-brown color. Aroma of apples, some apple liqueur, some candies and notes of other fruits. Very sweet, a bit vinous, sugary flavor full of ripe apples, caramel and a bit of alcohol. Thick, viscous, mouthfeel which is slightly sticky. Feels more than 7%. A bit too sweet for me, but still a nice sipper. 6/4/7/4/13=3.4
