Light gold color. Fruity aromas and flavors of apple turnover and caramel apple with a supple, crisp, effervescent, off-dry medium body and a seamless, buoyant finish conveying nuances of candied lemon and honeyed kiwi and green apple finish. A fun, fruity cider.

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.
