Light amber. Has a light appley nose. Sweet but there’s some mellow fruitiness, lots of cinnamon and spice. The acidity is really nice, lends a fun sense of balance. Very good quality.

Pours a sparkling clear golden with some good legs. Nose is of tart apples and crisp apple skin. Taste is quite tart and not too sweet. Crabapples. Very faint brown sugar. Almost no signs of the alcohol except for a slight drying feel (or maybe it is some tannins?). Body is a bit light for an ice cider but it still manages to feel a little sticky. Overall I can’t say I was floored by it but it was still pretty enjoyable, a little more residual sugar/balanced acidity and a more liquorous mouthfeel would have been nice though.

Blond color. Penetrating aroma, sour apples, a bit of stewed fruits. Sweet and very acidic, candi sugar, pineapple.
Very nice.

mcberko (12439) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - APR 6, 2016
UPDATED: APR 7, 2016 375mL bottle, pours a clear golden with no head. Aroma is intense, with notes of brown sugar, caramel and treacle toffee. Flavour is complex as hell, with notes of treacle toffee, brown sugar and caramel. Lovely red apple quality to it. Medium-high sweet, but never cloying. Fantastic stuff.

czar (7040) - Québec, Quebec, CANADA - MAR 14, 2016
sample from slovaksniper, thanks pat! pours clear bright golden with some gummy legs. honeyed golden delicious apples, mead-like spiciness, pears and unripened bananas perhaps; perfumey and floral alcohol, lightly tart yet (it seems) out-of-control acidity; salted butter, soap, other minerals. flat carbonation, medium to full body; sweet and spicy finish. a pleasant sipper but a oh-so-not world-class ice cider. regular lafrance is clearly superior.

2 oz sample from bottle (200 ml) at home. 2010 vintage. Thanks to SlovakSniper for this one! Clear bright golden leaving some really nice sticky legs on the glass. Aroma showcases the spices (cinnamon, cloves) at first but it’s backed really nicely by baked apples, honey, floral notes, tart apples, alcohol and mild caramel-ish notes. Taste is a beautiful dance between fruit sweetness and sharp acidity while the cinnamon, despite being rather present, plays a second role alongside alcohol, baked apples, tart apples, tropical notes and honey. Medium to full body. Oily and sirupy mouthfeel. Sweet finish until the sharp acidity cuts it. Some alcohol warmth, but never burning. This one deserves his place among the best ice cider mainly because of the balance between sweetness and acidity but also because of the wide array of flavors and the pretty classy mouthfeel. Amazing stuff!

Robe dorée qui dévoile de longues jambes bien aguichantes. Un parfum de cannelle se développe à travers une riche avancée des pommes et des poires. Également, une montée florale importante que je pourrais attribuer au jeu de l’alcool. Au goût, les fruits coupent les sucres grâce à une tranchante acidité. J’aime énormément cette impression. En bouche, le corps de moyenne densité révèle une texture légèrement sirupeuse. La finale aiguisée, un peu chaude, boisée, acidulée et mi-douce augmente considérablement sa buvabilité. Vintage 2010.

Bottle @ hotel. Brought back from Le Mondial des Cidres de Glace 2015. Clear dark golden beverage with some nice viscosity and legs. The usual deliciousness of ice cider is present here. Lots of baked apple, pie spices, and a touch of citric acidity. Good fresh, bright fruit character too. Slight maple, vanilla, and brown sugar...maybe some pie crust. Great body and mouthfeel as well.
