From the bottle @ Mondial de la Biere 2017, Montreal. Medium golden hue, still, with medium-high viscosity. Maple and vanilla sweetness intermingle with dense cooked apple flavour, lightly acidic finish. Tasty. JulienHuxley (5981) - Sherbrooke, Quebec, CANADA - APR 30, 2015
Sample from a bottle. Deep copper pour, clear. Aroma is really nice, candied apple, caramel, cinnamon apple, applesauce, light green apple. Taste is rich, decadent apple pie sweetness, lots of cinnamon and apple sauce. Palate is med-full bodied, quite boozy, you can certainly feel the added alcohol. Tasty stuff, not as refined as a great ice cider but certainly offers most of the same flavor profile. tom10101 (6297) - Quebec, CANADA - APR 21, 2015
2 oz sample from bottle (375 ml).

Appearance: Clear copper with almost no alcohol legs despite the high abv.
Aroma: The 16% abv is showing up as this is quite “hot”. There’s brown sugar, caramelized apples and notes of raisins.
Taste: Heavily sweet. Boozy with brown sugar, caramelized apples, raisins, nutmeg and oak.
Palate: Medium to full body. Not as thick as Ice Ciders. Warming, almost burning finish. Nutmeg aftertaste.
Overall: Quite boozy. I don’t have a baseline for “Cidre de feu”, but if I compare this to Ice Ciders, this is far less complex and refined. Still an enjoyable beverage, but not one that I would seek again.
Pours hazy amber with no head. Good legs. Aroma is of apples, lots of alcohol. Taste is of apples, tart, sugar, alcohol. Palate: Full bodied. No carbonation. Somewhat sticky. Burning alcohol. Overall: Quite nice, but very boozy. jredmond (8839) - New York, New York, USA - FEB 21, 2015
Bittle sampled at Mondial 2015 in Montreal with Linh, Ken and Nica. Pours an amber body. Mouthfeel is medium with notes of apple cider, skins, earthy wood and alcohol. You really taste the heat in this one.

Pours a clear copper without any bubbles. Aroma of cooked apples, brown sugar and alcohol. Taste is sweet and almost cloying but also a little tart. Flavors of apple cider (duh) and not much else. Alcohol shows up a lot in the finish. Interesting but not the best in class. czar (9612) - Québec, Quebec, CANADA - NOV 4, 2013

[4470-20120608] Bottle. Toasted oats cereal aroma drizzled in apple maple syrup. Clear, brown amber body with not lasting head. Boozy super-sweet apple flavour. Medium body. Sugary and sickly syrupy is quite overwhelming, but it is fun to try. (7/3/6/3/11) 3.0

Super viscous dark hazy brown pour. Thick aroma of hoey, apples, baked apple pie, all envelopped in a light tinge of smoke. The mouthfeel is very thick, the legs on the glass are incredible. The alcohol is there but its well hidden. Super sweet,and a touch tart finish. Incredible stuff, wow!
