CIDRIFICATION: Le cidre de glace est obtenu par une harmonieuse combinaison de deux procédés; la cryoextraction consiste à broyer et presser des pommes gelées durant l’hiver alors que la cryoconcentration consiste à geler le moût également l’hiver pour en extraire un sirop concentré en sucre et en saveurs. Ces différents moûts sont fermentés à basse température durant 6 à 8 mois, puis assemblés pour donner le Du Minot des glaces.

RÉSULTAT: Il en résulte un cidre de glace de 10% alc/vol aux arômes subtils et complexes, onctueux en bouche avec une belle acidité soutenant agréablement cette concentration de saveurs. Bonne longueur et fin de bouche toute en finesse.

A golden cider with aroma of apples and strawberries. In mouth, a nice smooth liquorous apple with maple notes, warming alcohol, acidic points. Tasted at Mondial des Cidres de Glaces, Feb. 11 2012.

> Incredible, underrated ice cider masterpiece with tannic barrel character

[ Bottle ][ 375mL ][ Cidrerie du Minot ][ $25-30 ][ La Face Cachee Neige Stemware ][ 9.14.14 ]
>> Pours clear, brilliant orange gold with excellent cognac legs. Nose is melted cheese atop baked apple pie. Whipped cream, spiced pear, pie crust. Taste is that awesome dichotomy of sweet sugary and acidic. Yellow apple, white sugar, apple skins, fruit juice acid. This one also has quite a hefty amount of wooden barrel character- quite tannic, but it isn’t wooly or astringent. Long, acidic palate. Again, I will tell you, every ice cidery in Quebec is world class. Not just La Face Cachee. They are top rated only because they are the easiest to find. Endlessly enjoyable, thoroughly loved by the group I shared it with.

>!< woody, barrel character, not easily found in ice ciders

Bottle, shared with my folks. Medium orange-amber, fairly high viscosity. Cooked apples and honey, hints of orange blossom, sticky sweet and so very drinkable!

callmemickey (3250) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 13, 2013
2008 Vintage. Deep golden-orange body. Nose is a bit muted compared to the flavor profile, but nice ripe, sweet apples, caramel, and honey come through. Silky mouthfeel, moderate sweetness, finish lingers for a few seconds. Solid ice cider.

Bottle, pours light browny, aroma is apples, and so is flavour, tastes just like apple juice, on the less sweet side of the spectrum, overall nice

Appearance: clear golden orange, growing more brilliant as the eyes travel from the edges to the middle.
Nose: slightly chilled preserved apples. Crisp dew-dropped green grapes. Pinot grigio. Chilled honey.
Palate: medium and silky sticky smooth. Tingles along the sides of my cheek from first taste to last. Honey and apple nectar are seamless. Fresh ripe whole grapes with crisp pinot grigio and sauvignon grape juices in the middle and dry slightly bitter and cleansing in the end. Honeydew in the finish. Homemade apple concentrate. Has a presence of being naturally chilled – like the end of Fall and the coming of Winter.
Final Thoughts: holyfreakingpocky! Thanks to the generous soul who brought this gem to the Sake, Cider, and Mead tasting at Eric’s. It was divine and quickly diminished amidst our raving palates. Delicious and artistic!
