Review: 2014 Beckhorn Hollow by Eve’s Cidery

Review Date: October 30, 2018

Sweetness: Dry

ABV: 8.50%

Cider Maker’s Description

Aromas swirl from raw honey to white clover blossoms to fresh lake breeze. The palate is a striking contrast to the nose with juicy kumquat, toasted hazelnuts and chamomile. The sweet floral, tart citrus and bitter citrus peel elements have seamless integration in a balanced structure. Bright acid and silty tannin are equal in the finish which is long and lingering with more honey, citrus and a bit of candied peel.

Appearance:

  • clear, bright, brilliant golden color

Carbonation:

  • high end of moderate, good pop from the bottle, full coverage of frothy small bubbles

Aromas:

  • caramel, leather, ripe red apple skins

Taste:

  • flavor explosion, melon, pear, forest earthy

Mouthfeel:

  • very balanced and smooth, just a light acidic bite

Finish:

  • long, rich flavor finish

Tasting Notes / General Impression

Sometimes this "job" is taxing on the palate.

Reviewer Notes

I found this bottle in Albany, NY in September 2018...so there are probably bottles out there for the finding. If you find one, buy it and enjoy!
