Three Pepper Hard Cider

Category: Specialty Cider

Date Tasted:
Country: USA
Alcohol: 6.9%
Pale bright golden yellow color. Aromas and flavors of roasted jalapeño and green pepper, cigar ash, grilled apple and turnip, and herbs with a supple, racy, dryish medium-to-full body and a peppery, compelling, medium-to-long finish that exhibits notes of pickled melon and okra, chili powder, and cracked peppercorn finish. A well balanced peppered cider with a nice tingle.

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.
