UPDATED: JUN 29, 2013 Corked 375ml. Short lived effervescent head settles quickly into a rose-hued clear amber pool. Fragrant floral red apples. Very clean, but also a tad "browned". Cedar, vanilla, rose petals, peach, honey and lemon-accents on a lush apple core. Tangy, spicy, acidic and wonderfully clean. Rich body, lusciously sweet. Strongly acidic, salivating and refreshing and new and wonderful. Spicy, peppery, jaw-droppingly poundable. The combination of carbonation and magnificently expressed apple sweetness is a new experience. I mean it almost feels like there are chile peppers in there. It’s a lingering brashness in a long, sticky finish. After a while it feels like heartburn. But that’s a wound I will suffer.
Ce liquide doré est légèrement visqueux. De fines bulles montent lentement à la surface. Un beau mélange de pommes; certaines fraîches, certaines cuites en arôme. Des pointes acidulées qui nous picotent les narines. Les saveurs sont sucrée et fruitées au travers une texture soyeuse, qui est perturbée par une effervescence alternative. En fin de bouche, c’est acidulé. Le clapet éprouve une certaine difficulté au passage, comme si le liquoreux mêlé aux bulles ne faisaient pas bon ménage. C’est trop épais pour être mousseux.

Pours a copper colour. Aroma of baked apple with a bit of spice. The body is really lightened by the carbonation. Taste is of toffee, apple skin, and caramel. Really nice, not too sweet. Ferris (16066) - Burnaby, British Columbia, CANADA - JUN 15, 2016

Beautiful bright amber color. Deep aroma, stewed apples, chestnuts/hazelnuts, touch of cinnamon. The mouthfeel is gently carbonated, it has a high degree of sweetness, moderate acidity, apple puree.
Maybe because of the fermentation, it seems that the flavor fades in the final. But it’s very good.
375ml bottle at Matt’s. Pours clear golden. Aroma is sweet, candied apples. Taste is sweet, slightly sour, caramel apples. Very good. mcberko (18389) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUN 15, 2016
375mL bottle, pours clear caramel colour. Aroma is packed with caramel apples, brown sugar, and baked apple pie. Flavour is intensely sweet, even for an ice cider, with lots of caramel apple dominating, followed by some treacle toffee. High residual sweetness. Finishes like a sweet, baked apple dessert. Excellent. Minderbinder (3469) - Québec, Quebec, CANADA - MAY 2, 2016
Pours golden with no head. Good lacing. Aroma is of apples, alcohol, pears. Taste is of apples, sugar, alcohol, brown sugar. Palate: Full bodied, very soft carbonation. Overall: Quite good. mathieuc (4000) - Québec, Quebec, CANADA - APR 16, 2016
Pours a clear golden with some sparse bubbles and some legs. Nose is of apple pie and brown sugar. Taste is moderately sweet and only lightly acidic. Brown sugar, apple sauce. Moderate body and soft carbonation. A bit sticky/syrupy. A nice dessert like any of the nice ice ciders, not sure if the bubbles add anything though. czar (9250) - Québec, Quebec, CANADA - APR 14, 2016
pours clear bright golden with a small white cap, few bottles making their way at the top. chewy and hearty red apples, woody caramel, apple and maple butter, almost cloying sweetness though, clean yeast. moderately low carbonation, medium body, sweet woody finish. carbonation is m.i.a. at the end. solid ice cider nonetheless.
