Clear light gold color. Delicate aromas of baked apples, butter roasted nuts, waxy honeycomb, and clay with a supple, tart, spritzy, sour light-to-medium body and a tingling, buoyant Sicilian lemon juice, blood orange, and matcha finish. A very, tart apple cider that will pair nicely.

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.
