6.5% Semi-sweet Sweet
Added: January, 2018

We ferment this cider in two batches, with two strains of Belgian-style abbey yeast, at high temperatures. Combined, these ferments present the archetypal Belgian beer nose of tropical fruit with hints of spice and pepper. We use a subtle infusion of oak to fill in the body and then sweeten with organic cane sugar.

A yeast adventure results in this silky, full-bodied cider. Lingering sweetness from the apples brings out tropical aromas of ripe banana, with hints of pepper and clove spice. A low acidity allows the lees to wander and create a gentle cloud. Nutty and bread-like finish.
