Tasting Notes / General Impression

Sometimes this "job" is taxing on the palate.

Reviewer Notes

being wild foraged and wild fermented I have to believe this changes year to year so you may experience different characteristics depending on when you try it

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.
