The first Smack of the season, made from McIntosh, Rhode Island Greening, and Northern Spy. Sweet and Macky with a rich golden hue, this cider is fresh and fruit. The McIntosh and Greenings are from some 75-year-old trees on Old Mission, the spy from a few miles up the road. Growers: Shultz Orchards and the Kolarik Brothers.

750mL Bottle poured at CiderDays 2010. This one was particularly notable to me because it was very similar to a homebrewed cider I’d made recently and got similar feedback on. This opens with a huge dessert apple aroma, fresh McIntosh juice, and fragrant sweet cider. In the mouth carbonation carries a little, but the structure falls apart into this sweetness without much strength from acidity or astringency. Love the intense aroma, but want something to hold onto in the finish.
