Color – Yellow/gold, mostly clear.
Nose – Light apple, honey, pear.
Flavor – Medium body. High acidity dominates the flavor, like “biting into a lemon” though there is nothing particularly citric about it. Long, tart, dry finish. No noticeable bitterness but some astringency.
Overall Impression – A good cider apple overall. Probably too tart on its own for most palettes, but the acidity and moderate astringency would lend well to a blend.
