Clear light gold color. Aromas and flavors of cardamom, raisin, canary melon, peppermint lozenge, and candied ginger studded brioche with a round, bright, spritzy, fruity sweet light-to-medium body and a charming, medium-length finish manifesting notes of fresh apple and vanilla cola finish. A pleasing cider full of sweet and spice.
