Cidrification: Cidre de glace mousseux aux arômes subtils et complexes de pomme confite et d’abricot. Quant à sa partie aérienne, le palais est séduit par ses bulles tout en finesse suivie d’une acidité légèrement nerveuse.

Résultat: À servir en solo à l’apéro ou en complément de soirée. Il accompagne également le foie gras, les fromages affinés et les desserts fruités ou chocolatés. Sublime avec un gâteau fromage au coulis de fruits rouges, le Crémant de glace est savoureux incorporé aux sauces accompagnant le dindon et le veau de grain du Québec.

Old description: A pleasing selection of ice cider and our acclaimed Crémant de pomme. Previously 7% abv.

3fourths (8879) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - JUN 28, 2013
UPDATED: JUN 29, 2013 Corked 375ml. Short lived effervescent head settles quickly into a rose-hued clear amber pool. Fragrant floral red apples. Very clean, but also a tad "browned". Cedar, vanilla, rose petals, peach, honey and lemon-accents on a lush apple core. Tangy, spicy, acidic and wonderfully clean. Rich body, lusciously sweet. Strongly acidic, salivating and refreshing and new and wonderful. Spicy, peppery, jaw-droppingly poundable. The combination of carbonation and magnificently expressed apple sweetness is a new experience. I mean it almost feels like there are chile peppers in there. It’s a lingering brashness in a long, sticky finish. After a while it feels like heartburn. But that’s a wound I will suffer.

brokensail (14558) - San Leandro, California, USA - FEB 24, 2015
Bottle @ Mondial des Cidres de Glace 2015. The final pour of our time at the festival. So sad. Lightly carbonated darker golden pour. Slight blue cheese funk on the nose. Nicely musty as well. Candy apple, caramel, and apple pie as well. There’s a really nice acidic quality all the way through, particularly on the finish. The same funkiness of the nose is there on the tongue, too. Good crisp apple qualities as well as some sweet sugar/caramel, a touch of green grape, and just a hint of spice.

jredmond (6938) - New York, New York, USA - FEB 16, 2015
Bottle at Mondial 2015 in Montreal with Linh, Ken and Nica. Pours a deep golden body with light bubbles. Mouthfeel is semi carbonated with thick honey texture and notes of tart apples, sugar, light wine, oak, apple skins, faint maple and champagne. Great sparkling ice cider hybrid.

mabel (8014) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 11, 2014
[6067-20131119] Bottle. Apple skins aroma. Dark yellow body with no lasting head and some legs on the sides. Sweet apple tart flavour has a long aftertaste. Light-medium body has a nice bubbly texture. Good. (7/3/7/3/16) 3.6

biggirlpanties (194) - Oceanside, California, USA - JUL 12, 2014
Corked and caged small bottle shared with GT2. Clear deep golden pour with small head, small bubbles. Smells of honeysuckle, crystallized sugar, licorice. Taste is excellent concentrated sweet apple juice, agave nectar, thicker mouthfeel. Sour finish. Like some of the best apple flavors you can ask for. So good.

> Awesome lower boost ice cider with your favorite apple pie plus acid balance

[ Bottle ][ 375mL ][ Cidrerie du Minot ][ $15+ ][ Reidel Reisling Stemware ][ 7.12.14 ]
>> Low carbonation, soft cork pop, small nucleation. Nose is apple pie with melted cheese on top. Taste is spot on juicy yellow apple, nice apple skin tannic balance, tremendous balancing salt and acid. Boss all around, though the carbonation seems to be unnecessary.

>!< why carbonate?

lesifflebiere (1520) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - APR 11, 2014
Un nectar doux mais explosif de saveurs. Très sucré, mais dans un équilibre parfait. La définition même d’un bon cidre de pommes, parfaitement mature et merveilleusement équilibré.

jercraigs (9154) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - NOV 29, 2013
2013-11-19. Crisp dark yellow body, nice legs. Lovely appley aroma, apple sauce and whisper of skins. Flavour is pleasantly sweet, light acidity throughout, sweet fruity apple. Smooth medium bodied palate, not as complex as some but lovely. Bottle from the cidery

DuffMan (8628) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - JUL 31, 2013
Bottle, shared with my wife (begrudgingly, as this ice cider business is becoming one of my new favourite things). Deep burnished brassy orange with medium sized carbonation that clings to the sides of the glass. Aroma is beautiful buttery caramel shortbread and apples, luscious! Sticky sweet toffee apple goodness, hints of spice, beautiful rounded apple flavour with nice acidity in the finish. Awesome!

j12601 (8700) - Poughkeepsie, New York, USA - DEC 2, 2011
Bottle. Pours a clear gold with small bits of a white head on the fringe. Best smelling cider I’ve smelled in a long time, smells of warm homemade applesauce, has a bit of the caramel acidity of ice cider. Beautiful. Medium bodied, velvety but with just the smallest hint of carbonation, sort of microcarbonation, very fine. Sweet apples, a touch of acidity, light with lingering apple sugar. Quite beautiful. Delicious.
