Light copper pink color. Earthy, attractive aromas and flavors of straw and paper mache, white strawberries, golden beets, and watermelon lip balm with a supple, tangy, effervescent, fruity medium body and an even, complex, long finish evoking notes of spiced apples, melons and oranges finish. A vibrant, mouthwatering, flavor-packed rose cider that is a pleasure to drink.

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.
