COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Gaia is an ice perry made from pears hand picked, crushed and cold pressed. No pear falls on the soil is added to avoid altering the flavors of a fruit at optimum ripeness. The sugars are concentrated exclusively by natural cold winters in Quebec, the so-called freeze concentration. The development and fermentation at low temperature span several months to develop a fragrance and flavor incomparable bouquet.

AlainG (2130) - Montréal, Quebec, - JAN 5, 2013
De couleur dorée et limpide, laissant des traces visqueuses aux parois lorsqu’on la remue. Ça sent la poire et la neige, ou peut-être le poire en sirop sur glace. Des effluves de miel s’harmonisent bien avec cette poire. Au travers cette texture sirupeuse, un goût de poires mûres, légèrement acidulé, qui auraient frayées avec un sirop d’érable dilué.

mathieuc (3791) - Québec, Quebec, CANADA - OCT 28, 2016
Pour from a very nice looking bottle. Pours a clear golden with good legs. Nose is of apples and light brown sugar. Taste is really sweet and there is not as much acid to balance it completely but it is still not cloying so all it well. Apples, cinnamon and brown sugar again. Body is medium and texture is syrupy. A very nice ice cider, I could drink a lot of that!

SlovakSniper (5394) - Candiac, Quebec, CANADA - OCT 22, 2016
Beau bouquet de poires et de pommes et de miel. Mon nez aime ce qu’il découvre. En bouche, le liquide est gras et jongle entre acidité et sucre. C’est bon et même délicieux. Plaisante finale qui exhibe des notes de poires riches.

Bottle (500 ml), shared. Clear pale bright green-ish golden leaving some legs on the glass. Aroma is of pears, spices, a bit of alcohol and honeyed notes. Taste is of pears, moderate spiciness, alcohol, honeyed, raisins and oak. Medium body. Still. Oily mouthfeel. Pears finish with a warming finish. Good Ice Perry. Deep but also fresh.

2 ounces at tasting. Aroma: intense alcohol, pear and apple peels mix. App: clear pale, no head. Taste and palate: light body, medium high sweetness, although and apple finish. Overall: good but seems to be too much focused on the alcohol.

PhillyCraft (6779) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 3, 2015
Care of james, pours clearish golden with notes of grape, and weird sugars. Perfume notes and lacks the bite in the finish. Wish it had more apple or sugar in her.
