COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Autumn’s Gold is our most complex and tannic cider. It is made from a blend of over 20 English, French and American cider apple varieties including Kingston Black, Brown Snout, Binet Rouge and Golden Russet. After picking, we “sweat” the apples in wooden crates for nearly a month to allow them to dehydrate and develop deeply ripe flavors. Autumn’s Gold is aged in oak after the primary fermentation, and aged sur-lie after the secondary fermentation. It takes 9 to 12 months before this cider is ready to drink. Autumn’s Gold is golden, bubbly and off-dry. It has a cidery, appley nose, smoky, tannic undertones and a rich, warm texture and lingering finish. One of the great delights of this cider is pairing it with cheese such as Parmigiano Reggiano, aged English Cheddar, or a unique raw-milk cheese from your local dairy. Serve Autumn’s Gold with your main course alongside savory foods such as truffles, smoked sausage, or parsnip soup.

Straw pour. Mild aroma of apples (of course) and alcohol. Flavor is tart and a bit odd, and quite strong!

auerbrau (3125) - Peace Dale, Rhode Island, USA - NOV 3, 2012
Poured at CiderDays 2012. Carameled aroma, with an almost ice-cider-like concentrated tone. Moves into a more complex, peppery rich and nicely bitter-balanced body. Finishes dry.

jredmond (5016) - Manhattan, New York, USA - OCT 21, 2012
Sampled with Linh at 61 Local in Brooklyn during NYC Cider Week 2012. Pours a light hazy amber golden body. Aroma is dry apple and sweet apple skins. Mouthfeel is slightly dry and acidic with notes of apple, light sugar and fruit skins. Nice.

MicroGrog (302) - FT: Stale Polotmavý in Queens, New York, USA - JUL 25, 2012
Sampled at Applepalooza @ Astor Center(10/19/11), & a bit more at the Union farmer’s market. 14k gold color & sheen. Smells heavy of acid, wood, & sharp flesh. Taste was not as acidic as expected. Faintly sweet apples are overshadowed by the pleasantly bitter middle. Exceptional dry finish. Just a bit tart. Snappy, though lenient carbonation. More cider then apple wine. Tasty. :)

j12601 (6585) - Poughkeepsie, New York, USA - NOV 8, 2011
Pouring at the Applepalooza event at the Astor Center. Pours a clear corn silk gold. Sweet apples, toast. Dry and crisp, nice tannis, acid dries out a bit more. Crisp, light carbonation.

JoeMcPhee (8188) - Toronto, ON, Ontario, CANADA - FEB 2, 2011
Deep golden pour with a little kiss of soft carbonation. The nose is soft and quite appley. A little bit of light tannic character. A little bit of tartness on the finish. It’s a pretty straightforward product although it does have a nice sweet dried apple. It’s quite nice actually.

hopscotch (8525) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - DEC 26, 2009
Bottle… Clear golden cider with abundant, weeping legwork. The nose is of fresh, sweet red apples and mild ethanol. Light-bodied and abrasive with busy carbonation. The flavor is fairly tart and moderately bitter. Finishes tart, bitter, and then ridiculously dry. Bottle courtesy of JW77!

Pours gold. Nose is huge ripe apples and tart bitter apple skins. Hints of wood. Champagne like and dry. Very nice cider.

JW77 hooked it up with this treat! Apples galore jump out of the glass and greet you with a smile. Some nice wood notes and light peat makes itself known if you pay attention. Great apple flavor with some dry earthy tones. Damn fine cider.
