Sometimes reviews get lost in my myriad of mobile/computing devices. This is one of those cases.
Kind: Snowdrift Semidry Cider
Size: 750mL glass bottle
Strength: 7.2% ABV
From: Washington State
Company Description: We’ve crafted this cider in the New England tradition, with heirloom apples and just a touch of brown sugar and honey (in New England, it used to be common to intensify the alcohol of the ciders by upping the sugar before fermentation by adding brown sugar, molasses, honey, maple syrup, etc.). Maturation on oak increases its complexity, providing dynamic key-lime brightness that floats above smooth honey midtones and finishes with deeper notes of caramel, toasted marshmallow and vanilla.
“Mmm… that’s quite nice”
An easy drinking cider. Like it says, it’s semi-dry and this is one of the best attempts of this that I’ve seen.
Too often the semi means sweet, but it’s not.
It’s fruity and slightly floral. Really yummy. And one of my favourite things about cider: Lots of apple.
As a great representation of the style, I’d love to see what the rest of the line is like.
Where to buy:
Pretty easy to find in Washington State.
