Description 

The Semi Dry has a grand aromatic composition of warm winter spice, ripe fruit and an affirming “how did an apple do that?”. This cidre retains a touch of the apples natural sweetness that invokes a full autumnal flavor, brightened by a gentle acidity, and enlivened by a well sustained effervescence. This cidre gains character with time.

E.Z. Orchards Semi-Dry Cidre by E.Z. Orchards was judged as a French Cider (2015 Cider Style C1C) and poured a robust golden color, brilliantly clear with a sturdy effervescence. 

Predominant aromas featured overripe apples, some caramel and a hint of pepper. Upon tasting, the mature apple character continued and was supported by a medium amount of tartness, some baker’s yeast and a low amount of tannins. 

At 6.9%, the alcohol was well hidden and enhanced the overall enjoyment of the cider. It finished medium-dry, with a fair amount of carbonation washing away the flavors from your palate in quick manner. Its low amount of astringency makes it an excellent table cider, well suited for appetizers or even a main course.
