Baked Apple

Category: Specialty Cider

Date Tasted:
Country: USA
Alcohol: 6.9%
Cloudy light gold color. Baked, fruity aromas of stewed apples, brown spices, minted melon balls, and hint of artichoke hearts with a supple, soft, petillant, dry-yet-fruity medium body and a breezy gingerbread, spiced green apple and kiwi, lemon granita, and lime vinaigrette on mesclun finish. A delicately spiced cider reminiscent of a mulled wine.

Specialty ciders include all ciders that do not fit neatly into other categories. These ciders may be barrel-aged, dry-hopped, spiced, made with single or heirloom apple varietals, fermented with an exotic or wild yeast strain, or any combination of these techniques. Ciders in this category have a diverse set of flavors, aromas and alcohol content. Most specialty ciders have seasonal or limited availability, but are becoming more readily available year-round as the category grows in popularity.
