The Hidden Rose apples for this specialty cider are sourced locally from the Thomas Paine Farm in Kings Valley, Oregon. The dark red flesh of these stunningly unique apples lends a rosy hue to the finished cider. Blossoming the sweet apple aromas, this cider is a one of a kind delicacy.

Aroma is amazing.. Gueuze-like with serious horse blanket and sun-scorched grass notes. Apple plays a part, but in a seriously funky/tart way. Appears orange, a disappointment considering the promised rose character. Lightly effervescent with funk up front and a dry, tannic finish. This is missing the beef in the middle, but age may be a factor as well as the dry fermentation. The intensity of the wild character is awesome, I just wish the cider had a bit more body to fully express its unique profile. Still recommended, and a worthy drink.
