Bouquet sur Glace is a magnificent ice cider nurtured and bottled at the Cidrerie Lafrance. This exquisite and fancy cider is a sweet blend of 2 varieties of apples.

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.

200 ml bottle, 2010. Clear brass with a few bubbles. Nose is baked apple, slight cider vinegar and earthy peels. Sticky, syrupy medium body with a warming tang. Taste is green apple, pear, cinnamon and vanilla. Just a shade below the top ICís for me.

Bottle... This ice cider rocks!... Clear golden cider with sparse, but beefy legs. Heaps of fresh and funky fallen apples in the bouquet. Full-bodied and syrupy with no carbonation. The flavor is remarkable. Itís every bit as acidic and sour as it is juicy and sweet. Delicious! Medium-length, tart finish. This awesome, world class ice cider was shipped my way by Marheb!

Bottle courtesy of Paul. Pours a thick, clear amber body with no head or lacing. Aroma is sweet apple slices. Mouthfeel is medium to thick with juicy notes throughout and flavor of apple slices, applesauce, honey, cherry, light bourbon and fruit skins. Awesome!

July 18, 2010. 200ml clear bottle shared by jerc & mabel with me and blankboy. 2006 vintage. Deep gold, minimal head, huge legs left on the glass sides after a swirl - lovely. One of the best ice cider aromas - 8+ - lightly acidic ripe apple, not baked, not too boozy or sweet - just .... apple, as it should be. The taste follows - simple, pure apple, middling alcohol, no wine or regular cider character, again not too sweet - terrific, one of the best. Perfect mouthfeel - not too thick, but not watery, acidic, a fairly long tangy/tart linger - want more!!

JAXSON (535) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 16, 2011
2006 vintage, thanks Fred. Pours a clear honey. Nose is meadow, wildflower honey, sweet red apples. Mouth is really thick, sticky, and sweet. Spicy, very sweet red apples, intense, floral, lush. Tart and sweet, decadent. Body is thicker than any other ice wine Iíve had. Finish is pleasantly hot.

BDR (2534) - Roseville, Minnesota, USA - JUN 3, 2011
As with most Ice Ciders this is a stellar offering. A dark gold color with a very concentrated apple aroma; faint hints of brown sugar as well. The flavor is much the same, with an almost crystalline mouth feel as it lingers on my tongue.

Pouring at Le Mondial des Cidres Glaces. Pours a clear gold. Warm sweet apple aromas. Super smooth and sweet with a light bite to it. Slowly turns tart but keeping most of the original sweetness. Long caramel and lingering acid on the finish.

mabel (7712) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - NOV 3, 2010
[3142-20100718] 200mL clear bottle. Freshly pressed apples and intense thick syrup aroma. Clear, orange amber body with no head and thick legs. Sweet syrupy apple juice flavour has a light tang on my tongue after and lingers with a sweet finish. Full body. Fresh and delightful, yum!
