Cider Maker’s Description

This limited release cider is made exclusively from the Russian Imperial Dolgo crabapple, aged for 5 months in stainless steel, and very lightly sweetened to create a powerful, tart cider for those who like their cider boldly sharp. Think Granny Smith on steroids and you’ll be close. Puckery.

  • green apple, citrus


  • sour, tart, lime, malic acid


  • high acid, moderate to high tannins


  • lingering malic acid

Tasting Notes / General Impression

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.
