Cidre apéritif. Vieilli en fût de chêne. Né d’une fusion entre la Cortland, la Golden Russet et la Lobo, ce cidre apéritif a tranquillement vieilli en fût de chêne. De style Porto, il est corsé, franc et onctueux. Google Translation: The "Keg" was born from the merger of a wholly-eau-de-vie refined cider and ice cider Domaine Lafrance. Aged in oak, this aperitif cider gives off aromas pronounced wood and dried fruit, paired with a sweet caramel flavor. Thoroughness and rigor of the producer in each of the manufacturing steps to ensure "Keg" exceptional quality and unique taste.

Un cidre apéritif bu en fin de repas. Il est doré et montre ses jambes. À l’olfactif, notes d’eau-de-vie de pommes, de chêne et de terre épicée. L’attaque est puissante, chaudement celle d’un cidre de pommes et de son traitement en barrique. L’alcool est floral et un peu piquant. En bouche, le corps liquoreux est flatteur. En fin de gorgée, je sens toute la richesse du bois et la force de l’alcool. Pas mal.

Sample. Pours deep golden with no head. Aroma is of apples, sugar. Taste is of apples, sugar, alcohol, slight tartness, some flowers, perfume. Palate: Full bodied. Very sweet. No carbonation. Overall: Very nice. Awesome apples. Well balanced, complex.

Pours a clear dark golden with long legs. Nose is of cooked apples and brown sugar. Taste is moderately sweet and moderately acidic, of apples and brown sugar. Light oak. Almost no signs of the alcohol content. Body is full and liquorous, rich and sticky. Overall a really nice ice cider, a perfect after supper sip

Sample (2 oz) from bottle. Thanks JulienHuxley!

Appearance: Deep golden-copper with massive alcohol legs.

Aroma: Quite boozy with the oak features being dominants, baked and caramelized apples, earthy notes, berries and light spiciness.

Taste: Quite boozy as well, but it’s less overpowering and more balanced than the aroma. The sweetness help to balance the alcohol. There’s an important oak presence, moderate spiciness, caramelized apples and mild acidity.

Palate: Full bodied. Liquorous mouthfeel. Oaky and warming finish. Lingering mouth coating sweetness.

Overall: It’s really boozy (too much for my liking), but isn’t completely out of balance and it’s definitely quite tasty. Fine sipper.

2 oz sample from bottle. Very bright deep orange copper pour, crystal clear with nice legs. Aroma is enticing, rich mellow ice cider aromas, caramelized apple, baked apple pie, cinnamon, with light cognac like alcohol aromas. Taste is rich, tons of baked apple, ever so slight apple tartness with a mouthcoating, lingering alcohol warmth that never burns but is always felt. Palate is really rich and warming. A bit too boozy, but still very nice.

Bottle, saved for me by my parents, and shared with them and friends. Deep golden, still, with medium to high viscosity. Quite a juicy apple aroma and flavour profile, light caramel, light oak, slightly medicinal finish. No sign if the 15+%!

pours like medium dark golden syrup, nice legs when swirling. apple pie, juicy almost overripened apples, light and well integrated woodsy notes, hint of vanilla and maple syrup, sweetness, in a cloying manner yet it is appreciated for this quality - brown sugared apples; fire cider possibly. flat carbonation, medium to full body - oily and thick, hint of lightly tart apples for a sweet fruity-woodsy finish. nicely crafted/ possibly blended. tasty and never overdone barreling.

Un liquide doré translucide. Un nez de pommes mûres et légèrement acidulé. En bouche, une texture onctueuse transporte le bon goût de la pomme avec l’alcool réconfortant. Il y a aussi une touche liquoreuse et un côté qui râpe un peu, mais d’une façon positive. Ça se boit bien. C’est d’un bel équilibre et ça accompagne bien mon dessert. (977-170114)
