Cidermaker Peter Mitchell’s interpretation of the classic New England Style Cider is produced only from apples (Cortland, Empire, and McIntosh) grown in his own certified organic orchard in western Massachusetts. Fermented to nearly complete dryness, with just a hint of residual sweetness and a tart finish.

Purchased at New England Wine & Spirits. $11.99 for the 750 mL bottle. To oversized snifter, it pours a pale greenishyellow/colored gold sustaining only a few champagne bubbles on the surface. Aromas of apple skins, Williams pears, sweat, lacto-fermented ginger ale, stale pineapple, wheat germ, lime juice, and upland cotton. Tastes the same with the addition of nougat, wet cardboard, and table sugar. Dry, tart-sweet, and swishable. Also, it utilizes three of my favorite apples. Growing alcohol warmth experienced by third sip.

750mL Bottle, poured at CiderDays 2011. A much improved effort over last year’s Clesson and (?). This wasn’t an overly complex and multi-dimensional cider, but it gets the important parts right, with clean individual apples note spread among a well-balanced delivery of tart, dry, bitter, and sugar. Reasonably priced nearby, as well.
