COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Ol’ Stumpy is our premium blend of traditional cider apples from New England plus Granny Smith, Jonagold, and cider that’s been aged in a chardonnay barrel. These traditional cider apples give Ol’ Stumpy an earthy flavor and the tannic mouth-feel that makes you think you’re sitting in an old orchard sipping history. The apple springing from a long neglected tree stump is emblematic of the revival of traditional ciders across America.

Sampled at the 2013 Chicago Cider Summit. Pours a slightly pale yellow with slightly visible carbonation and an extremely thin head. Aroma has a beautiful combination of dry apple, slight tartness and a dry chardonnay note. Flavor has a musty but dry apple that works nicely with the chardonnay.

On tap at the cidery. Transparent light golden with a nose of sweet green apple and red apple rind, with a sugary backbone. Taste is off-dry, with some nice mellow apple tones, a light touch of Champagne yeast, and light fruity sweetness, not too sugary or syrupy. Pretty tasty and balanced.
