Yellow straw color. Aromas of banana and brown sugar cookie with a velvety, crisp, spritzy, moderately sweet light-to-medium body and an even, breezy nuts in toffee, honey-nut cheerios, and caramel cream finish. A nutty, table-friendly cider that will pair quite well with hazelnut crusted meats.

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.
