Review: Ectoplasm Cider by Far From The Tree

Sweetness: Semi-Dry

ABV: 6.66%

Cider Maker’s Description

Here in Salem, brewing up a cider to celebrate Halloween is an idea that came super naturally to our cider makers. Featuring green bell peppers, jalapenos, and kiwi, Ectoplasm materializes only once a year for the month before All Hallows’ Eve. Grab a four-pack before they vanish into thin air.


  • cloudy, neon green


  • moderate carbonation, the ongoing fizzing from the glass is audible


  • spicy peppers! (like sting the back of your nose & throat spicy), green peppers, difficult to get much more than that with the effects of the hope peppers


  • fruity, the kiwi comes through in the flavor, green peppers, jalapenos, spicy, it has a sweet vegetable flavor to it


  • acidic, spicy burn, medium body / not too heavy, not too thin


  • looong spicy burn with a fruity sweetness lingering

Matthew Ostrander
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.
