3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
pours unclear light yellow, gold tint. sticky legs. red apple sugars, some skin, booze, like apples soaked in booze - or is it? mistelle feeling for sure, ethanol and fusel alcohol, some other fruits - pears for instance, touch of maple syrup, some floral and grassy notes too. small-sized bubbles - low carbonation, medium body. sweet, warming and tingling pepper and booze finish. straightforward. ok.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
375 ml bottle shared with Capflu, Goldorak, beerbuzzmontreal, Boutip and DumDum at the Ciderwinder tasting in Ottawa. Medium oily amber with just a hint of legs in the glass...subtle earthy apple-brandy nose, less alcoholic and harsh than the Mistelle des Pommes...vanilla, almonds later in the aroma...sweet, alcoholic body with oak and bitter almonds showing up late.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle: Amber color cider with strong alcohol aroma. Body is quite full and taste is sweet with alcohol a bit too prevalent. Overall, I would say this is still an above average as a strong dessert type cider.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Another Québec cider with the word "glace" in it. It’s not just a fad I’m afraid, it’s to fool people into thinking this is Ice Cider, which it is not. This is more of a Mistelle.
Light caramel, it sticks on the sides of my glass as I swirl it.
Nose is like a Calvados, strong ethanol vapors, with perhaps a bit of oak and maple. Pretty hard stuff, again maple shows up but not much else. A little too strong, I’d use it to make deserts or deglaze a pan.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
(375ml bottle) SAQ $22. Displays a deep amber soul with an oily viscosity. The nose is very sweet and one dimensional - the high ABV only comes out during a deep inhale. sweet to the lips though - picks the tongue and nasal cavity with its highly estery palate. Honey and perhaps sage come to mind as well. The finish is sweet and burning. Average.
