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.

Ungstrup (29494) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - DEC 5, 2006
UPDATED: APR 2, 2009 Vintage 2005 - sampled 2006. An orange cider with just hints of a head. The aroma is strong with notes fo apples and cinnamon, and the flavor is very sweet with notes of apples and cinnamon. Nice.

Vintage 2006 - sampled 2009. Amber with a whiff of head. The aroma is sweet with strong notes of over ripe apples, alcohol, and caramel. The flavor is quite sweet with a light tart touch and strong notes of apples, leaning on being over ripe, leading to a dry finish. Thanks Steffen for this second go at it.

Papsoe (25084) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - DEC 2, 2006
(Bottle 37,5 cl) Vintage 2005. Clear, amber golden with a small, white head. Fresh, tart apple aroma. Very full-bodied with a high degree of sweetness - extremely sweet actually - and then an odd saline accent. Interesting but completely disharmonious. 011206

fiulijn (15000) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - APR 14, 2010
Bottle from Au Verger de la Madeleine‎, Paris, 375ml, expensive (16€)
Vintage 2007, 2 years old, 7.2% ABV

It pours a dark amber color, hazy, flat. Aroma of apples, nuts, caramel. Strong body, even if less thick than other Ice Ciders, very sweet, with a distinctive late wood astringency and late acidity; flavor of overripe apples, caramel and some honey.
The caramel presence makes me think of a concentration obtained by boiling the cider, more than by freezing the apples; decent but not as fresh and fruity as the Canadian samples; nor it is as complex, but at least the astringency is original..

yngwie (13844) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - JUN 23, 2012
Bottle, 2009 vintage. An amber colored cider, flat and oily. Soft and rounded on the nose, with some alcohol hints. Lots of apples though. A touch of caramel too. A tasteful one, with lots of apples and sweetness, and some orchard. Dry on the palate even though it’s quite sweet. Really lasting finish with apples and sweetness. Maybe a bit too sweetish and low on alcohol, but it’s still a damn tasteful drink. 120623

Bottle, 7%. Sweet apple aroma, also reminds me of liquorice powder... tyrkisk peber. Hazy amber colour. Brown powder sugar flavour. Quite sweet flavour, and not very appley. Good in small doses.
