Cider Maker’s Description

Forest Moon is an out-of-this world flavor bomb! Forward fresh basil notes with a rich, peppery, herbaceous flavor profile complement the luscious, deep fruit flavor of apple and pomegranate. With a rounded acidity and very light sweetness, this limited-release cider can be enjoyed straight from the can or mixed in a creative cocktail. Yub nub.

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.
