COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Golden blond color, fresh and exuberant mouth-watering scents of hazelnut and peach fragrances. Intense and velvety taste with a dominance of apple followed by a hint of enticing butterscotch and vanilla. Full bodied, finely inlaid balance of acidity and sugar and a very nice length. The must obtained from frozen fruit pressed in January is frozen again. That intensifies sugar concentration before low temperature fermentation begins, which process preserves and seals every flavor and aroma. Excellent from beginning to end, lovely with a foie gras mousse, excellent to enhance blue cheese and delicious with French pastries.

On tap at Montreal Winter Warmer 2012. Hazy peach color. Aroma is fresh apples with floral notes, honey and a hint of sourness. Flavor is very sweet wit floral notes, honey and a nice acidity. Body is liquorous with a tiny bit of carbonation. Very good ice cider.

375 ml bottle from the Party Source. 2012 vintage. Pours a clear darkish gold with no head but some decent legs in the glass. The aroma is sweet but clean compared to the flavor. The flavor is very sweet, with loads of sweet buttery apple, caramel, boozy warmth, and some spices late. As it warms, it’s sweeter at the end and the spice is mostly gone. Full-bodied, with a sweet, chewy mouthfeel and subtle tang. Not the most unique take on the style but as an up-the-middle one goes, this is very nice.

375ml bottle @ home. 2006 vintage. Pours a clear rich golden colour that leaves nice legs on the glass. Nose is of stewed apples, brown sugar, some acidity. Flavour is moderately sweet for an ice cider, sour apple, caramel, and gently tart. Very tasty.

Thanks Tom1. golden yellow, still with some nice alcohol legs. Aroma has loads of honey sweetness, apple, blueberry, strawberry and some honey. There’s a very light carbonation but nothing significant. The sweetness is really intense. A small amount of this is enough. It has the mouthfeel is a natural standard hard cider. yet the sweetness and density is certainly iced. Leaves a coat of sugar on my tongue and teeth.

I;m a beer guy whi has had ciders. So many taste similar to me. I like some better than others but overall I’ve never really paid much attention. Until this monster. Wow! Poured at Shelton Fest. Golden color in a snifter. Big apple, peach, nectarine, and candy aroma like a desert room at Berns. Taste is even better with apples and pears reduced in brown sugar, butterscotch, and hazelnut butter. Soft, delicate, velvet mouth. For sipping for sure. Just very verty good.

Pours a clear golden and leaves nice legs on the glass. Nose is of apples, brown sugar, apple pie. Taste is moderately sweet (for an ice cider) and gently tart. Nicely balanced and easy to drink. Body is medium-full and it coats the mouth quite nicely. Nice one!

Belle robe dorée. Arômes de pommes et de fruits du verger acidulés, de miel et de caramel. Saveurs riches de pommes mielleuses et caramélisées avec une pointe épicée. Corps liquoreux et assez collant. Finale douce et un peu chaude.
