This cider pours medium straw and is brilliantly clear, with champagne like bubbles that rise from the glass.  It has a prominent fresh and lightly bruised apple aroma followed by a spicy, cinnamon background note and a light acidity. The apple character is also prominent in the flavor with a suggestion of spicy cinnamon, offering it an almost apple pie like character.  The medium acidity and light tannins help to balance the pleasant residual sweetness and low alcohol warming that spreads into the semi-sweet finish.  The medium body and high carbonation offers a fuller mouthfeel and gives the cider some additional appeal.  It is a very pleasant and refreshing cider that can be enjoyed throughout the seasons.
