I took it as woody (and did the man at the booth say "leaves?"; might be a language thing). Same underlying apple as the Neige, he explained. The apples are strongest in the aroma, but the flavor is where the action is: flowery, apples, a touch of spice and wood. Definitely good quality but I didn’t actually like it very much. (Montreal Beer Festival, 2008).

Objectively speaking: Anoher brilliant ice cider from the masters.
I like: Brilliant concentration. While present, the alcohol is fitting and feels even necessary to sustain the rich liquorous body. Floral, mature, ripe apple flavours, akin to Neige, but perhaps less acidic and nuttier, older.
I dislike: Excessively thin. Trace hops.

2008-05-30. Golden yellow body. (3+) Sweet sugary notes, tart apple skins, mild apple and fruit notes in aroma (7+). Flavour is sweet fruity apple, with tart-acidic apple highlights. Very nice. (8+) Smooth medium bodied palate. Solid. Bottle, 2005 Vintage, Mondial, Montreal, 5T trio

Thanks to puzzl. Poured clear thick and gold. Sweet apples right in the face. Apple flash and skin just super super fresh and concentrated. The flavor of course apples, both red and green. Great warmth. So tasty. Smooth somewhat syrupy body.

Thanks to puzzl for sharing this treat. Pale golden pour, thick with sticky legs. Rich sweet aroma of apples, nutmeg, apple seeds and a bit of pepper. Spicy and tannic. The flavour has lower malic acidity than I like in ice ciders, but that is a minor quibble. Lightly nutty, richly sweet, and delicious.

Bottle. Delicious apple peel aroma, slightly boozy with a big amount of fresh apple sweetness and old musky grape. Delicious apple core, thick and leggy, a touch of spice. Really rich in apple sweetness and everything that an ice cider should have. Fantastic.

Quevillon (2448) - Boisbriand, Quebec, CANADA - FEB 21, 2008
Bouteille de 375ml, acheté au Marché des Saveur (Marché Jean-Talon, Montreal) le 31/01/08, bu le 20/02/08. Jaune légèrement foncée, bien liqueureux. Arome de jus de pomme frais et sûrette, petite présance d’alcool. Goût de fleure de pomme doux, légèrement sucré, un peu plus acide dans la bouche, mais la sensation d’alcool et presqu’absente (surtout qu’il n’a que 12% alc./vol.). Un joli cidre de Face Cachée!
