Bright light gold color. Aromas of toasted nuts and apple pastry, coconut husk and meat, and hint of glue with an full body and a tingling, delightful, medium-long apple-lemon relish, mossy earth and limestone, and cedar paper finish. A robust, artisanal dry cider with a nice balance of earth and fruit.

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.
