Cider Maker’s Description

This tropical fruit is indigenous to South America. In the wild, pineapple plants can yield fruit for up to 50 years. Pineapple cores contain high levels of bromelain, an enzyme which can be used to tenderize meats. The sweet and tart qualities of this fruit balance well against the natural acidity of freshly pressed apples.

Tasting Notes / General Impression

this drinks a little lighter in body than many other pineapple ciders, very refreshing, I like that apple flavors are still present

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.
