Review Date: April 27, 2019

Sweetness: Semi-Dry

ABV: 5.50%

Cider Maker’s Description

This cider is easy-drinking with just the right amount of tart and sweet. We blend the pleasantly sharp bite of Macintosh apples with the honeyed, pineapple characteristics of Golden Delicious. The classic Macintosh flavor is prominent, reminiscent of fresh New England farm stand cider, while Golden Delicious adds a tropical layer to the finish. A highly drinkable and perfectly balanced cider handcrafted 100% from the finest quality locally sourced apples. Our ciders are gluten-free with no added sugars, water, or concentrates. Only the good stuff.

Matthew favors dry hard ciders with body and leans towards traditional English styles, and he’s also developed a serious appreciation for hopped ciders and creative flavor infused ciders. Though he prefers sweets in solid forms, he does enjoy semi-sweet to sweet ciders responsibly when the mood strikes. Learn more about our Chief Cider Curator here.
