Wild English – Sea Cider Farm & Ciderhouse, 7.5% ABV, 750ml, (Saanichton, BC, Canada) (*local BC craft cider*)
on the back label:
“Earthy, robust and ultra dry, Wild English is not for the faint of heart. Named for the wild yeast fermentation of English cider apples, Wild English delivers the country aromas of a crisp autumn day in the orchard. Raise a glass of Sea Cider and indulge your wild side!”
- Style: (Dry) Apple Cider
- Taste: Dry woody slight funk red apple juicy tangy tart more woody exhale
- Where I got it : Bottle Jockey /N. Burnaby
- How much: $16.60 CAD (after 12.5% off) – 750ml., March 2016
- Do I love this enough to drink it again: no
- Would I recommend this to cider aficionados: decent, but too dry for its juiciness
Visual: Bailer top re-sealable bottle. Pours medium-deep golden apple juice yellow with no significant head, very thin ringed retention, a bit of activity but not a lot.
Nose: musky apple juice, some woodiness, trace amount of funk. (lvl-5)-pungency
Attack: crisp, acidic-dry impression
Mid-palate: (lvl-1)-sweetness, juicy woody red apple juice, medium tart, trace funk, tangy crisp acidity
Finish: woody apple exhale, residual tart puckeriness,
Summary: The woody depth and slight funk adds some interest to this – a decent meal cider and an palate-whetter.
