Kinda on the fly and in a hurry, but here goes…

Origin: Princess Anne, Maryland, USA

Composition: 100% Heyser Farm Spencerville Red apples

Appearance: foggy green-tinged straw yellow

Nose: ripe red apples, ginseng, honey

Palate: same as nose, super-clean, dry, and crisp

Mouthfeel: round front-palate with a lean, but long and fruitful finish

This is a cider I have been in love with for a couple of years now (a consistent gold medal winner at the Maryland Governor’s Cup wine competition). Not easy to find, even in our immediate market, but well worth going out of your way for. Crisp and refreshing for the Summer, but not un-shy at 8% alcohol. A fine breakfast cider that pairs well with a mixed-veggie frittata and potatoes.
