Appearance

The tart cherries provide this cider with a vibrant ruby red color. The champagne yeast adds slight bubbles that disappear soon after pouring.

Smell

The cider has a pleasantly funky aroma. Slight notes of cherries and apples can be detected.

Taste

If your eyes were closed you might swear you were drinking a rosé wine. The use of heirloom apples and tart cherries gives this cider a unique complexity. The apple flavor is mild and brisk and complements the sharp notes of the cherry. The lower sugar content of both fruits produces an off-dry cider with slight acidity and a fermented aftertaste.

Mouthfeel

Medium body, slightly sour and dynamic causing you to pucker just a bit; light carbonation and fermented aftertaste.

Wine Lovers: Why Drink It?

If you love medium or full body rosés (and I do) then you will find this cider very pleasing. Highly drinkable and can be easily paired with a rich cheesy dish or a nice lobster risotto.

Score:  8.5/10 – Exceptional
