Sa couleur jaune vert est déjà un présage de dynamisme. Au nez, des arômes de poires, de pêches et de pommes fraîches. Franc, vif et bien balancé en bouche, il révèle des notes de melon de miel, de poire asiatique et de raisin vert. L’élaboration lente concentre soigneusement les parfums, la fraîcheur et le croquant du délicieux fruit défendu ! Désaltérant, moins bourratif qu’une bière, cet Original franchement intéressant comblera les fines bouches passionnément curieuses. La qualité de sa présence en fait aussi un ingrédient de choix en soirée, parfait pour concocter un kir, un panaché ou encore un étonnant Black Velvet (bière noire sur cidre). Google translation: Its green color yellow is already a dynamic omen. On the nose, aromas of pears, peaches and fresh apples. Frank, lively and well balanced on the palate, it reveals notes of honeydew melon, Asian pear and green grapes. The slow development carefully concentrated flavors, freshness and crispness delicious forbidden fruit! Refreshing, less stodgy than a beer, frankly this interesting Original fill fine passionately curious mouths. The quality of his presence makes it an evening choice of ingredient, perfect to whip up a kir, variegated or an amazing Black Velvet (black beer cider).

UPDATED: FEB 12, 2013 I like this cider! It has a nice, almost clear colour to it. The taste reminds me of biting into a perfectly ripe apple. It?s delicious! Not too overpowering with the acidity, but not light on it either. It?s not the best cider I have had (their other ones are even better), but it is a good one one nonetheless, and an easy one to knock back.

On tap at Bateau de Nuit. Pours a clear yellow and looks completely still. Nose is of sweet apples and something that I associate with bread yeast (doesn’t take too much place, though). Taste is of a good apple pie but without too much sweetness. It isn’t completely dry, though. Body is medium and carbonation medium-high giving it a juicy mouthfeel. Good.

On tap @ Le Saint-Bock. Clear and very pale yellow with no head and no lacing. Aroma is very mild with light apple notes and hints of tartness. Taste is also very mild with light apples, light acidity and very light notes of white grapes. Light body. Very soft carbonation. Slightly dry finish. Short aftertaste. Not the tastiest Cider, but I could easily drink a gallon of this.

Bouteille claire de 355 ml achetée au Marché Godefroy (Bécancour, Qc). Arôme: Très légère odeur de pomme. Apparance: La couleur est translucide avec une très faible densité de bulle. Saveur: Léger goût de pomme légèrement acide. Courte durée de l’arrière goût. Palette: Le corps est moyen avec une texture légèrement minérale. Moyenne effervescence en bouche. Légère présence de pomme en arrière goût. (Rating #5064)

Pretty typical and adequate cider. Nothing too interesting, but nothing to complain about either.

pours clear very pale hay without a head, small-sized bubbles. fresh but shy apples - very subtle but nice, mostly apple skin, red skin, some flowers, light yogurty and lactosey, light acidity, creamy foundation (!). soft carbonation, light to medium body - almost oily, lightly sweet and lightly acidic finish - balanced.

Une bouteille transparente. Une robe jaune et sa mousse qui ne se montre qu’au versement. Un nez occupé par la douceur des fruits et par des effluves de fleurs de pommiers. Au goût, les pommes, qui sont à la fois sucrées et acidulées, se marient à des saveurs de raisins blancs et de melon mielleux. En bouche, des bulles qui dansent sur es papilles. Un corps presque huileux. Une finale légère avec des notes de pommes qui ne me font que légèrement saliver.

Bottle. Pours a clear golden straw color. Big sweet apples, slight vinous notes but more of a soft acidity really. That same tart acidity on the nose that ice ciders get, but not as thick and succulent. Medium bodied, small lively carbonation. Oily almost, with a nice acidic balance. Nice and subtle, easy drinking. Finishes up with a slow apple peel note.
