Laissez-vous tenter par «Le Fruit Défendu», un cidre de glace artisanal élaboré à partir de la récolte automnale de diverses variétés de pommes tardives telles la Mc Intosh, la Spartan et l’Empire. Mûries à point, les pommes sont pressurées sous les grands froids de l’hiver québécois. Un long processus de fermentation à basse température suivi de soins particuliers des artisans propriétaires permettent à ce cidre liquoreux de révéler ses arômes fleuris et fruités.

Bottle @ Mondial des Cidres de Glace 2015. Orange tinted golden pour. Slightly syrupy nose. Lots of brown sugar and caramel sauce. Stewed apple, slight fruit skin, and honey. Flavor is certainly sweet, but does have a nice hint of acidity. More honey and brown sugar than anything. But good apple flavor, sweetness, and acidity.

2013-02-22 - tasting hosted by blankboy, with gregclow, jercraigs and mabel - 375ml clear corked bottle c/o J&K. Lovely and unexpected coppery gold, bright, refractive, a bit oily-looking, nice legs, not much head. Aroma of ripe apple, with skins, hint of white wine - not overly alcoholic (8+). Simple taste - apple, ripe, a touch sour but also a bit sweet, like many, it made me think of baked alaska somewhat. Light body, slick, slightly boozy mouthfeel, finishes quickly and simple - I would like a touch more acidity and complexity, but a solid drinker nonetheless.

2013-02-22. Dark golden amber body, syrupy legs. 3+ Musty fruity apple, notes of skins, hints at caramel and brown sugar. 7++ Flavour is quite sweet, sugary, fruity, bit of musty apple. Syrupy smooth full bodied palate. Simple and has a bit less balancing acidity than some others - but no sooner do I type that then the next sip gains a bunch of acidity. Enjoyable, quite pleasant. Bottle from Marches des Saveur, Montreal, June 2012

Bottle [375ml] shared with HogTownHarry, GregClow, jercraigs & mabel -- c/o j&m. Pours a deep amber with practically no head, just a hint of a bubbly white head. Lovely aroma of sweet apples and a hint of honey. Flavour’s the same, lots of sweet apples along with a hint of honey and some light floral notes. Medium bodied, syrupy mouthfeel. Very nice stuff.

blipp (7342) - San Diego, California, USA - APR 14, 2012
Bottle. Pours amber with a thin head. Sweet fresh apple aroma, with spices and a hint of honey. The flavor has fresh red apples, caramel, a hint of honey and brown sugar, and just a touch of fresh apple tartness. Really good, but just a touch too sweet to be truly great.

jredmond (6651) - New York, New York, USA - APR 13, 2012
Bottle courtesy of Max. A real cidery treat. Pours a thick, amber honey body with no head or lacing, of course. Aroma is sweet, ripened grannies, apple crisp and apple skin. Mouthfeel is syrupy, but not overly so - with notes of apple skins, sweet sugary apple sauce, thick amber honey and apple concentrate.

JoeMcPhee (9004) - Toronto, ON, Ontario, CANADA - MAR 11, 2011
Cider #1 of cider tasting 2010. Deep golden pour. The nose is intense and loaded with a bright acidic nose. Intensely concentrated and fruity. A little bit of pineapple in addition to the apple sweetness. On the palate the acidity is more muted than the aroma suggests. Chewy and fruity but quite soft. I like the intensity, but the balance leans sweet.

j12601 (8000) - Poughkeepsie, New York, USA - FEB 16, 2011
Pouring at Le Mondial des Cidres Glaces. Pours a clear golden amber. Super sweet, somewhat cloying. Sugared apple slices, so sweet. Warm touches of alcohol on the finish. Overall a touch too sweet. Lots of tart acid, but it fell just short of balancing it out and it was all overwhelmed by the sweetness.
