“We believe the old ways are still the best. That’s why we always use genuine cider apples to craft our authentic cider selections. Now, we’ve added a zesty twist of real ginger, for an exotic and lightly spicy cider experience. We know you’ll taste the difference.”

Visual: Pours clear light yellow with no head and a few slow and steady streams.

Nose: tangy ginger + cane sugar, almost like a ginger beer. Very bright and inviting. (lvl-7)-pungency

Attack: sharp carbonation, dense sugars

Mid-palate: tangy acidity, fizzy-tingly, (lvl-6)-sweetness, (MAIN) ginger, apple juice,

Finish: light-med ginger burn, burpy, light-cloying, lingering ginger burn finish.

Summary: Authentic ginger as advertised with a substantial burn, quite good all things considered. Not too pretty visually or texture-wise, but very sippable with a meal.
