Pale yellow, but with charming little effervescent bubbles that pearl to the rim of my glass. Du Minot is known for their sparkling ciders and I knew this one wouldn’t dissapoint. The aroma at first was a bit off to me, yes it smelled like apples but it was more of an apple purée that smelled like freshly regurgitated baby food. Thankfully, as I drank more it wasn’t as bad. The taste however, is totally spot on. Fresh and lively, great apple flavor, yes it’s dry but there is still a bit of residual sugar that makes it both refreshing and drinkable. This was the cider of the night for everyone at the tasting, and I agree. If only the smell was better, this would be an absolute knockout.

[ Bottle ][ 75cl ][ Cidrerie du Minot ][ Free ][ Champagne Flute ][ 5/27/14 ]
>> This is the red label c&c 750. Pours a champagne crystal clear white with soda foam. Nose is muted, carbon dioxide, green apple. Taste is white wine, bland Chardonnay. Finishes with a sharp tannic bite and is extremely dry. Apple skins, white wine acidity. It isn’t cidery enough for me, replaceable by run of the mill Chardonnay. Not the type of cider to seek out in ice cider land.

[5250-20130425] Bottle. Light apple dust aroma. Clear, pale yellow body with a quick bubbly head. Dry apple notes in the flavour with a hint of something sweet. Light-medium body. Good. (7/3/7/3/13) 3.3

jercraigs (7812) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 4, 2013
2013-04-25. Crisp bubbly body. Mild aroma of sweet apple, and similar fruity apple flavour, meant to be champagne like it has a mustiness to it that is similar, but I think I preferred the fruitiness of the Cremant de Pomme. Average to light bodied palate, effervescent. Decent but not my favorite of their offerings. Bottle, sampled at the cidery

Very pale with an austere aroma. Dryish, with lots of acidity and light fruitiness. Finishes with a hint of alcohol.

deyholla (6633) - Oklahoma City, Oklahoma, USA - JUN 12, 2011
Sampled from the bottle. Poured a clear pale blonde with visible carbonation. Aroma was full of sweet apples with a bit of a backing vanilla note. Flavor started with sweet apples that mellowed slightly and a bit of vanilla and earthiness coming in the finish. Carbonation helped the beer pop.

LadySusan (720) - Ste-Therese, Quebec, CANADA - APR 26, 2010
750 ml. bottle from Du Minot. The color is a nice clear blond with sparkling bubles. The aroma is of apples of course. The taste is sweet and dry but not to dry. I liked this one being that I am not a big cider fan but this was very pleasant.

Quevillon (2501) - Boisbriand, Quebec, CANADA - DEC 25, 2009
750 ml bottle purchased at their booth at the Salon des Métiers d’Art in 2009 (December 15, 2009), drinking at Christmas. Very clear blonde, very effervescence. Sweet apple aroma, hints of yeast. Taste of sweet and dry apple, with juicy finish, very effervescence in the mouth and quite refreshing. It is a sparkling cider that is fun to drink!
