Minutely hazy gold color. Attractive aromas of spiced apple, ripe cheese, honey cake, zucchini bread, and dandelion with an effervescent, dryish medium body and a smooth, interesting, medium-long licorice, bitter persimmon, lemon peel, and ground mustard finish. A grippy French Cider with divine aromas and a balancing bitterness that will play very well at the table.

French-style ciders range in alcohol from 3-10% and are typically full-bodied with lively carbonation and subtle sweetness. This category includes all French-produced and inspired ciders including Normandy-style ciders. These ciders are often available in larger format bottles enclosed with a cork and cage. French-style ciders are more wine-like than most styles, and can be incredibly complex with lively acidity making them a perfect pair for a wide array of cuisines.
