Bouteille 375ml souvenir du Marche de Noël Bxls, stand québequois.
Doré/orangé, doré au verre, le tout est un peu huileux.
Arôme pomme, pardi! nez vert, pommes pressées.
Palais pomme, côté brut, râpeux avec une petite astringence qui semble être un caractère de ce cidre glacé. Touche de sucre caramélisé peut-être moins présent que sur d’autres style Face Cachée. Qcq tanins et un côté vert frais persistant. Ferris (15403) - Burnaby, British Columbia, CANADA - MAY 28, 2015
Bottle - Apple and nice almost honey sweetness. Light gold. Lots of light Apple, light tartness and a nice Apple peel finish. Very nice. mcberko (17854) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAY 28, 2015
2012 vintage. Bottle sent from wilco (thanks a lot, Mike), pours a clear light golden. Nose brings out light caramelized apples, toffee, and light candied sugar. Flavour is actually quite light for an ice cider, with light caramelized apples, medium sweetness for an ice cider, and some toffee. Moderate alcohol burn. Low-to-medium complexity for an ice cider, but still lovely. Minderbinder (3469) - Québec, Quebec, CANADA - APR 25, 2015

Appearance: Clear bright orange-golden with nice legs.
Aroma: A bit of alcohol at first, but it then settles down a bit to let the apples shine… juicy McIntosh. There’s also some caramel and very light spiciness.
Taste: Medium sweetness and moderate acidity presence with a bit of alcohol, overripe apples, caramel and mild spiciness.
Palate: Medium body. Not super thick. Moderately sticky. Warming finish. Lingering sweet apples aftertaste.
Overall: A tad boozy, but otherwise it’s a rather classic well-executed Ice Cider. It showcase the apples quite well.
Pours a clear amber with low legs. Nose is like taking a bite into a Cortland. Light brown sugar and plenty of acid. Taste starts lightly sweet but quickly turns to tart. Taste is of light brown apples with light apple pie impressions. Body is medium and mouthfeel ever so lightly sticking to the lips. Alcohol shows a bit in the mouthfeel but that’s about it. Really good! czar (9085) - Québec, Quebec, CANADA - APR 16, 2015
