Golden yellow color. Waxy aromas and flavors of roasted pear, bruleed apple, buttered crusty bread, and vanilla wafer creme cookie with a satiny, vibrant, dry-yet-fruity light-to-medium body and a medium-length finish displaying notes of minerals, tea, and green apple skin finish. A pleasantly dry cider with wide appeal.
