Lavender Apple Hard Cider

Date Tasted:

Minutely hazy yellow color. Grassy aromas of tart lime candies, fresh basil, marijuana, fresh cut grass, and mango with a soft, vibrant, bone-dry light-to-medium body and an interesting, medium-long jicama finish. A crisp and clean herbal cider.

Specialty ciders include all ciders that do not fit neatly into other categories. These ciders may be barrel-aged, dry-hopped, spiced, made with single or heirloom apple varietals, fermented with an exotic or wild yeast strain, or any combination of these techniques. Ciders in this category have a diverse set of flavors, aromas and alcohol content. Most specialty ciders have seasonal or limited availability, but are becoming more readily available year-round as the category grows in popularity.
