Discover the secret in the apple! Cider from historic, hearty Northern Spy apples blended with ecologically grown Liberty apples, brings a deeply rooted American tradition to the modern table for your enjoyment. Made from apples grown at Hicks Orchard, a family farm in the Adirondack foothills and New York?s oldest U-Pick orchard. Clean, crisp, aromatic and refreshingly smooth, like a ripe apple just picked from a tree. Hidden Star pairs well with Summer barbeques,Autumn picnics,Winter festivities, and Spring frolics. Serve chilled.

Really nice cider. Not too sweet, nice and crisp with some apple flavor and aroma and a lively effervescence.

Bottle. Typical cider pour, aroma is very mild and pretty basic apple. Flavor is semi-dry, with a nice balance of both sweet and tart apples. Has a slight white wine note, and hints of orange. Very balanced, enjoyable, but not very distinctive. Would be a good cider for dinner.

Poured from a bottle it is a light yellow with a slight head. The aroma is of apples and the taste is a sweet apple flavor with a bit of a light champagne after taste. Very nice.

From a 75 cl bottle shared in Avon NC. Pours a clear pale gold with a scant white head. Champagne-like. Flavors of green and Macintosh apples. Lovely carbonation and mouthfeel.

Piss yellow pour with a short-lasting carbonation sits crystal clear in my glass. Bitter, tannic nose with short-shooting spritz recalls champagne in only the classiest way. There is a touch of sweaty aroma, almost cabbagey, that seems interesting as long as it doesn’t translate in to the taste. Drinks very crisp with a savory, musty note that counterbalances the true apple flavor. Yes, it’s a bit brussels-sprout-y, but the slight degree makes it all OK. This is a complex cider with a festive presentation that creates a satisfying experience. Probably something I would enjoy more in the warmer months, but fun and tasty overall. I especially like the tart zip in the finish which doesn’t linger but seems quite pointy. Just one more layer to this fantastic beverage.

Bottle. Medium apple sweetness, more so on the nose, with faint tartness and a hint of acidity. Very clean and east drinking, with a relatively crisp and dry finish. At 9% ABV, I could guzzle the hell out of this. Beware.

Bottle at Proletariat prior to heading to Andy’s for New Years. Pours a clear glowing straw gold. Soft fleshy apples on the nose, tart and crisp. Medium bodied, tart acid, warm tangy apples. Long tartness, crisp and bright. Yeast is very faint. Finishes very clean. Lovely stuff.

Bottled. Pale golden translucent pour. Apples obviously smell. Dry acidic finish. A very elegant cider

UPDATED: DEC 17, 2012 Half a gallon gurgled while slurping down complimentary oysters at the Times Center cider week event. :D Re-rated from a bottle purchased @ the New Amsterdam Farmer’s Market. Clear, pale golden straw color. Lots of fizz. Pineapple juice sort of aroma creeps through before it airs out. Especially so if you stick your nose in the neck of the bottle. Browned apples, pear-like perfume, & champagne. Taste is bittersweet. Sweet table wine, acidy apple, bitter cores, wood. Lingering bit of green grape sugary-ness. Mellow tartness. Slick texture with a strong carbonation that really sells it. Nice local stuff, even if they have a bit of a sweet tooth.
