Bright sedimentary gold color. Aromas and flavors of leather saddle, apple compote on runny brie, reduced lemon, and artisanal exotic wood with a round, vibrant, frothy, dry-yet-fruity medium-to-full body and a tingling, complex, long apple kaffir, honeyed fruit medley, and earth finish. A funky yet restrained French-style cider that exudes the summer countryside.

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.
