A specialty blend of apple varieties from Oregon and Washington. The first 3 batches made from Newtown Pippin and Winesap from Heirloom Orchards in Hood River, Oregon. Apples we ferment will fluctuate seasonally and lend variations in Anthem’s flavor profile from batch to batch. The apple varieties used and their contribution to the flavor profile will be listed on our website and on each keg by the batch.

The apple varieties listed on my bottle’s label are different than what’s listed here. Sounds like it varies batch to batch. In any case, if anyone is curious what it tastes like to ferment a bunch of good apple juice from the grocery store, it tastes exactly like this--if you’re lucky. It’s as bright and as clear as filtered apple juice and completely headless. It tastes mildly of apples and is just slightly sweet w/ a touch of acidity and some tannins that cling to the tongue. This is a light and very drinkable cider that does not seem to be garbaged up w/ a bunch of flavor extracts. It is probably not going to blow your mind but it’s pretty tasty if you are into such things.

Small taste at Biggie Wine & Liquor. Crisp, lightly vinous and refreshing with light sweetness and a dry finish. Pretty tasty for a cider.

Gerbeer (2108) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUN 30, 2014
On tap. Looks like apple juice with little carbonation. Light aromas if freshly cut apples. Flavors green apples and tart white wine. Not much there and nothing to write home about but refreshing

onceblind (4843) - Denver, Colorado, USA - JUN 1, 2014
Clear pale gold with no head. Smells a bit odd with notes of red apple and just a bit of earthy astringency. Tastes much better with some yellow and green apple notes and a crisp earthy mellow ness I can’t describe. Tame but at least not candy sweet.

On tap at August Jack's. Pale, clear yellow. Aroma is apple and a string alcohol burn. Taste was pretty clean and a fundamental, basic apple cider.
