Ginger Hard Apple Cider

Category: Specialty Cider

Date Tasted:
Country: United Kingdom

Brilliant light gold color. Aromas and flavors of butter apple pie dough, dried ginger, toasted peanuts, and carnation with a silky, bright, effervescent, fruity sweet light-to-medium body and a smooth, intriguing, medium-length finish with impressions of apple-ginger relish, honeyed pear, and bit of tree bark finish. A pleasant ginger accented cider with a nice pie-like quality.

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.
