Brilliant light emerald straw color. Aromas of spring flowers in soil, dried citrus and apples, and fresh hay with a silky, bright, effervescent, dry-yet-fruity medium body and an engaging, medium-long pear soufflé, fine minerals, pickled peach and melon, and arugula finish. An sylvan and ethereal cider that drinks a bit like a fruity Prosecco.

Common ciders range in alcohol from 4-8% and typically feature dominant apple aromas and flavors. Most are not dry, but also not cloying, with a sweet, medium body and acidity. This style is what the majority of consumers associate with hard cider. The descriptor 'common' is in reference to the types of apples used to produce these ciders, rather than in reference to its quality of ready availability. Common ciders are produced from culinary table apples, typically including varietals such as Golden Delicious, Jonathan and Macintosh to name a few.
