COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
’A taste of Québec’s winter... and warmth! Dégel is the product of the sugars still held captive in the ice that is at the origin of Neige, our apple ice wine. When exterior temperatures rise, country steams begin to flow and spring is once again on its way, we transform the apple must’s second run into a fresh and delightfully fruity elixir. Dégel can be enjoyed on its own as an aperitif, or as an accompaniment to white meat or fish. Serve iced.’

Arôme de pomme verte, sec, pas trop amère, pas du tout surette désagréable et surtout le sucré n’est pas agressant. On peut en boire une bouteille sans problème. TRÔNE AU SOMMET!

[ Bottle ][ 75cl ][ La Face Cachee ][ Free ][ Neige Stemware ][ 5/27/14 ]
>> Pours flat, still white wine color. Nose is bright green apple, leafy green grass, chardonnay. Taste is lightly tannic, huge green apple acid, chardonnay white wine, long and robust acid through the finish with powerful crispness. Essentially white wine made from apples.

tom10101 (2663) - Quebec, CANADA - DEC 24, 2013
Bottle (750 ml). My bottle is 10% abv. Clear golden, no head nor lacing. Aroma is fun because it’s really similar to their Neige, but way milder. There’s green apples along with vanilla, light sweetness and honey. Taste is slightly sweet with green apples, honey. wood and vanilla. Alcohol is completely hidden. Light to medium body. Surprisingly refreshing considering the abv. Good!

czar (4154) - Québec, Quebec, CANADA - OCT 28, 2013
pours unclear bright golden, no cap, ice-cider-like. green apples along with their semi-sweet fruity esters, woodsy and lightly tannic, doughy and honeyed sugars. flat carbonation, medium body - oily, lightly tart, astringent and semi-sweet finish. refreshing even at this abv - not boozy either. not your classic for sure as it is much closer to apple ice wine. enjoyed!

AlainG (1141) - Montréal, Quebec, CANADA - MAY 31, 2013
Blond/jaune et limpide, qui mousse au versage et ça s’évanouit aussitôt. "Normal!" me dis-je. Les odeurs sont de pommes mûries accompagné d’un parfum que dégage un jardin fleuri à l’automne soufflé par une brise fraîche. Son goût, qui alterne entre le sucré et l’acidulé et qui contient des particularités épicées et une agréable touche fruitée. L’arrière-goût est suret sur les bords. Un plaisir pour la bouche.

Drake (8030) - Free Union, Virginia, USA - MAY 9, 2013
750 mL bottle courtesy of JulienHuxley. Thanks for this, my 100th cider rating! Pours a clear golden color with no head. Fairly strong legs. Aroma of tart apple juice, mild honey and tannins. A touch of vanilla and smoke. The taste is sweet apples, apple skins, vanilla, tart finish. Medium bodied, slight booze, well balanced. Nice cider.

cfrancis (2269) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - JAN 7, 2012
Pours a crystal clear pear yellow and is still. Aroma is subtle, slight tannin. Taste is fresh, slightly astringent, not the sweetness that you would expect but an easy drinker.

patrick767 (3536) - fort wayne, Indiana, USA - DEC 30, 2011
bottle at the cidery - This tasty cider reminds me of a dry to semi-dry white wine and would be good with food. It’s a still cider with tasty, tart apples and is very easy to drink.

j12601 (6584) - Poughkeepsie, New York, USA - SEP 28, 2011
Bottle. Pours a clear golden straw color. Big sweet apples with a touch of honey and sugar. Not as thick on the nose as an ice cider, but a lot of that lovely sweetness and a bit of tartness. The sweetness from the nose doesn’t translate to the body, not very much sweetness at all. Dry apples, a bit of alcohol coming through. Finishes with a tart apple note, a touch of warm alcohol and a bit of yeast.

SlovakSniper (3046) - Candiac/Frelighsburg, Quebec, CANADA - AUG 28, 2011
(75 cl) La robe est scintillante et dorée. Au nez, les pommes sont vertes et définitivement touchées par la brise qui souffle les champs fleuries. Au goût, la chair est juteuse, finement acidulé et doucement caressé par les sucres. En bouche, le liquide est finement structuré. La texture est tout de même soyeuse. Un cidre savoureux et rafraîchissant.

deyholla (6514) - Oklahoma City, Oklahoma, USA - JUN 12, 2011
Sampled from the bottle. Poured a clear yellow with a slight gold hue and no head whatsoever. Aroma was quite sweet with apples and apple blossoms and was nice and crisp. Flavor was sweet as well with apples and apple blossoms and a hint of acidity to help balance.
