COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
In the fall, very ripe apples are hand picked and stored at cool temperatures until the end of December. Once winter arrives, the fruit is pressed and the juice obtained is placed outside in the intense January cold. During crystallization, the water separates from the sugars by NATURAL CRYOCONCENTRATION. After few days of intense cold, concentrated must, representing 1/5 of the initial quantity of juice, is collected by gravity. The must is then placed in OAK barrels where it ferments for at least eight months at low temperatures. Raised on lees for 4 months in barrels, it was then assembled and bottled.

Bottle. Pours dark rich golden amber color with no head. Aroma is apples, oak, light fruits. Flavor is intense apples, oak, vanilla, pears, floral. Palate is full bodies, sticky sweet, syruppy. Massively intense apple flavor, ultra sweet, defintely a sipper. Would pair great with a plain cheesecake.

Acheté à la SAQ du casino à hull en format de 375ml d’une série de 15338 bouteilles produites en 2004. Apparence jaune ambré avec une légère teinte brune laissant de belle trace sur le verre. Arômes de pommes confites légèrement boisé avec une grande finesse. Goût de pommes confites d’oranges avec une touches de tabac. Wow! un liquide divin et complexe.

radiomgb (2451) - Peterborough, Ontario, CANADA - FEB 9, 2009
Clear golden in colour with just a hint of amber thrown in, no head, excellent alcohol legs. The aroma is very strong with lots of apples, alcohol, cinnamon, some pears. The flavour is again full of apple pie, apple sauce, baked apple - basically everything that you can make with an apple, moderate amounts of alcohol, sweet and a little sticky, very smooth. Warming mouthfeel, medium body, mild carbonation. Finishes long, warm with lots of apple sweetness.

As good or better then the Frimas and quite a bit cheaper. You can’t go wrong with anything from La Face Cachée.

From a bottle at Mondial 2008, Montreal, Quebec.
Sampled on May 29, 2008.

Bottle thanks to Bu11zeye. Pours a clear crystal gold, nice legs. Aroma of sweet apple and some caramel, a little cinnamon. Flavor is very much the same, sweet as well. I was caught off with this....I had to take a second look. Im not that much of a cider drinker yet but this was damned good!

BMan1113VR (7891) - Los Angeles, California, USA - NOV 19, 2008
My 1100 rating. 2004 bottle thanks to bu11zeye. Pours a pale gold with amazingly strong legs. Aroma of sweet apple, caramel, cinnamon and a light must note. Very sweet in the aroma. Taste is full and sweet with cinnamon, apple pie, caramel. This is a cider that forces you to smile. Syrupy and sweet, completely mouth coating, but still not as full as Frimas. A great Ice Cider!
