Eden’s Honeycrisp pours with a beautiful, rich, clear golden hue. The aroma is driven by intense caramelized apple aroma, followed by orange zest and hints of clove on the edge. Critical to the success of this ice cider is the beautiful and notable backbone of acidity that attacks the massive presence of apple sugars. There is nothing flabby about this cider. On the palate an ample explosion of flavors flood across the palate, driven first by ripe apple, but accompanied by candied lemon rind, apricot jam and peach marmalade. The finish is lengthy. This is very successful and very pleasing ice cider made to showcase balance as much as sweetness. Drink this cider chilled, but not cold. There is a sweet spot where temperature is concerned that, when found, opens the door to reveal why this is great cider.
