COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Since its first harvest in 1994, La Face Cachée de la Pomme has been redefining the apple ice wine experience. Every year offers its own surprises! Inspiration, from our 2005 harvest, expresses our thirst for refinement and whets the appetite of the imagination. This golden liquid has hints of roasted hazel nut. It will delight all your senses. Enjoy it on its own as an aperitif, or with fois gras, cheese or dessert. Serve cold. Limited edition of 3540 bottles.

Gorbalev (2893) - Ontario, CANADA - SEP 22, 2009
Bottle, shared with my wife on our 8th wedding anniversary. Pinkish yellow. Strong apple aroma, somewhat tart. Taste is very tart and sweet. I actually found the body thin in comparison to some other world class ciders. Dry sweet finish. Enjoyable, but not worth the price - there are better ice ciders. Still a nice treat though.

TheEpeeist (3175) - Swarthmore, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 29, 2009
375 ml bottle. Clear tannish pink with a few bubbles on the edge. Nose is baked apple, pie crust, vanilla; a touch of lemon zest. Slick body, borderline syrupy, not quite crisp. Taste begins with earthy apple. Gets somewhat tart like a Fuji, before finishing with green apple and peel. Not quite as polished as the Neige but still a delicious apple experience.

nuplastikk (4123) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - AUG 13, 2009
DC Local Gathering, graciously shared by ygtbsm94. Deep alcohol laced cider aroma, a touch darker than the Eternelle. Orange-tan color, hyper filtered. Some thick red apple taste. Not unlike honey-mead. Sticky sweet, hides the alcohol perfectly. Very mellow. Sugary finish.

nimbleprop (4190) - SouthWest, Washington, Washington DC, USA - AUG 12, 2009
Sampled at the DC Local Gathering. 2nd Ice Cider ever. Nose is earthy with apples and a distinct vegetal aroma. Flavor is more apples, sweet caramel. Thicker and sweeter than the Neige. A little salty on the lips, legs like a scotch with a distinct alcohol burn.

scraff (2121) - Baltimore, Maryland, USA - JUL 20, 2009
(DC Local Gathering, big thanks to ygtbsm94) – Clear still gold with thick syrupy legs. Deep candy apple aromas lay on strong foundation of honeyed peach. Concentrated warm sugary apple tones mingle with a soft subtle tartness and just hint of spice. Medium bodied and ultra slick. Absolutely fantastic…

HogTownHarry (5983) - Toronto (Harbourfront), Ontario, CANADA - JUN 25, 2009
UPDATED: JUL 13, 2009 Bottle (375ml - clear, corked). My bottle, shared with garthicus and gregclow to toast the passing of the King of Pop. Clear slightly amber-gold, oily, no head. Lovely smell - baked alaska, slightly musty, in a good way, moderate alcohol - ripe, tart, slightly acidic. Taste - nearly perfect - tart, light alcohol, a perfect sweet/acidic apple balance, maybe a hint of ... peat? something bitter, very solid, my God their stuff is amazing. Slick, lightly acidic, still, mildly boozy, with a long dry tart ripe apple linger. Very close to the Frimas, certainly a world-class beverage.

garthicus (2591) - Dublin, IRELAND - JUN 25, 2009
Thanks to HogTownHarry: we toast to Michael Jacksons passing with GregClow & Harrys wife. Aroma. Just super apple and malt. Appearance: pink. No head. Flavour: super ripe, super apple. Super altogether.

Cletus (6329) - Connecticut, USA - JUN 14, 2009
Pours a pale straw color with some bubbles against the glass. Smells sweet, tarte, some spicey hints. Tastes sweet and sugary with lots of appley notes. Finishes full bodied and lightly spicy.

elihapa (1525) - Honolulu, Hawaii, USA - MAR 14, 2009
Bottle from the ciderie. Pours blonde-orange with a few bubbles for a head. Aroma of rich apple cider and minerals. Flavor is strong and full-bodied, of fresh apples, caramel, apple skin, and cinnamon. Finish is mildly tart, but in a way that only deepens the complexity of this Ice Cider. A more rounded version of their already phenomenal Neige Cider.
