Clear gold color. Attractive aromas and flavors of flaky apple pie crust, toffee, white balsamic drizzled dried pears, and worn leather with a round, vibrant, effervescent, off-dry medium-to-full body and an even, amusing, long finish with impressions of lemon spritzed green apples, tangerine, chalk, and rhubarb finish. A rock solid fruity French cider that is sure to please.

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.
