Tieton Cider Works Blend Cider


Brewed by Tieton Cider Works
Tieton, Washington USA
Style: Cider | Ratings: 4 | Alcohol: 7%
Our Tieton Blend Cider mirrors the region where we make our cider: dry, sometimes bone dry. We start with sweet Washington apples that are blended with bitter and sharp traditional European cider apples. We remove the sugar during fermentation, letting the tannins, acids and aromatics fuse into this complex and balanced crafted libation. You will find that all of our ciders pair beautifully with all foods; especially with cheese, charcuterie and savory entrees.

TASTING NOTE:
This crisp English style cider begins with a floral and fruity nose. It has perfectly balanced citrus notes, and then introduces hints of green grape skin and slate with a lingering pepper quality at the finish.

PAIRING IDEAS:
Salty cheeses, Roasted chicken, Soups of roasted carrots, Salads with fennel.

AWARDS:
2011 Great Lakes International Cider & Perry Competition, Bronze Medal in the category of English Cider
2010 Three Counties Award, England Hereford, Worcester, Gloucester Highly Commended
2010 San Diego International Beer Festival, Standard Cider Class: 2nd place
