Bottle: thanks, Jeff! Extremely pale & clear body, barely straw with a bubbly white, champagne head that's gone in moments. Aroma is faint apple, honey, & some light cheese. Dry, even a little funky? Taste is crisp & clean with notes of green apple, honey, cotton, & a sugary finish. Dry & highly carbonated like a champagne. It's no premiere, but it's still pretty tasty.

D’un jaune très très pâle qui laisse paraître des bulles qui suivent un tracé similaire aux boissons gazeuses. Des senteurs de pommes mûres, de fleurs et d’un air d’automne en quelque sorte. Un goût sans surprise, de pommes acidulées avec une sensation, une caresse minérale. Version à 7.5% Merci Jamie! (1077-170514)

[ Bottle ][ 75cl ][ La Face Cachee ][ Free ][ Neige Stemware ][ 5/27/14 ]
>> Big carbonation, champagne bubbles, clear light golden pour. Fizzing out soda foam. This is their straightforward demi-sec cider with a dosing of Neige Premiere ice cider to keep it from being all brut and too dry. Very light sugariness and a hint of cinnamon apple pie in the nose. But overall it is simple and refreshing though not as bright and crisp as the Negel and lacking a super acidic palate. Definitely more in the American cider swing of things, not complex like some French ciders.

Very pale and clear cider...foamy white head that dissipates quickly. Aroma is appley but champagney. Flavor is honey crisp apples meets champagne...nice mild honey. Light Mouthfeel and a dry apple finish.

[5368-20130520] 750mL clear bottle. Sweet MacIntosh apple fleshy aroma. Clear, pale yellow body with a quick foamy white head. Sweet apple fruit flavour. Medium body. Tasty. (7/3/7/3/14) 3.4

czar (4109) - Québec, Quebec, CANADA - DEC 3, 2013
pours hazy pale golden with a small white cap, little retention. fresh red apple skins, vinous notes - rosé-like, other fruits - pears for instance, touch of leather and wood, hint of tartness - citrus, some sweetness. almost prickly carbonation, light body - nice texture, drying lightly herbal, spicy and yeasty finish. decent refreshing offering but again, i’m still not convinced with carbonated ice cider/wine.

tom10101 (2613) - Quebec, CANADA - NOV 10, 2013
Bottle (750 ml). Clear yellow with a lot of bubbles and a small white head. Aroma is mild with apple, vanilla and light spices. Taste is also mild with apples, spices, vanilla and light sweetness. Alcohol is well hidden. Medium body, but a tad watery at times. Sparkling with big bubbles. Slightly dry. I was expecting something a little tastier, but this was still more than decent. Refreshing and easily drinkable.

Bottle: The aroma consists of apples and some faint cheesy notes. It pours a transparent white-gold with a small white head that quickly fades to a thin ring. The flavor starts with sweet apples and finishes with a hint of tart apples. It’s light-medium bodied with lively, bordering on prickly, carbonation.

LilBeerDoctor (3409) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 11, 2013
Bottle. Pours a light yellow with a bubbling head and plenty of effervescence. Aroma of sulfur, tart sweet apples. Flavor is sweet with fresh Macintosh apples up front with a sweet sugary finish. A nice bubbly sparkling palate. Very crisp, slightly tart, sweet, and drinkable. 8/4/8/4/15 [3.9/5]

2013-05-20. Crisp yellow body, bubbly, tiny white froth. 3+ Modest aroma, lightly musty, mild apple skins, moderate fruity apple. Flavour is similar, moderate fruity apple character, lightly tart, mild dry notes of apple skins. Average plus palate. Enjoyable, less assertive than I had hoped with the ice cider addition. I suspect that may add more to the marketing than it does the product in the glass, but it was enjoyable regardless. Bottle from SAQ
