COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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

tunneler (131) - Charlottesville, Virginia, USA - AUG 2, 2011
Wonderfully refreshing, tart and slightly sweet. A bit simpler than the Wild Washington.

degbert (1399) - Austin, Texas, USA - JUN 7, 2015
Bottle. Pours a very dark gold with a shallow, fine-grained ring head. Nose is apple, honey, dust, straw, and a little barnyard funk. Rich and off-dry on the tongue; bitter apple, allspice, nutmeg, vanilla, apple peel, and a little apple pip predominant. Finish is woody, dry, and long. Nice.

Fatehunter (1684) - Corbett, Oregon, USA - MAR 27, 2015
Pours a clear light gold body. The aroma is bright and floral. The taste is dry apple and pear flavors. Nice. The texture is crisp and fizzy. Enjoyable.

OldMrCrow (2177) - Seattle, Washington, USA - JAN 19, 2015
500 ml bottle, marked "Dry" in addition to Tieton Blend Cider. Very light pour, gently sparkling. Tart musty nose with white wine. Extremely clean flavors, dry and refined but not particularly tart. This is a very easy drinker and worth a revisit every now and then.

bhensonb (12577) - Woodland, California, USA - DEC 6, 2013
Bottle from Total Wine in Sacramento, CA. Pours translucent, light amber with a few bubbles. Nice, rather complex aroma showing lots of skin. Med body, or close. It’s tannic/astringent, so much so that it suggests wood. And it is very dry. Nice change from many American ciders. Oh, and there are apple flavors!

AmEricanbrew (6370) - Same Trailer, Different Park, Louisiana, USA - APR 19, 2011
Clear golden body. Sweet ripe golden apple, cinnamon, mild sulfer aromas. Light bodied. Semisweet apple, yeast, sulfer flavors--not bad.

after4ever (6731) - Brier, Washington, USA - JUL 4, 2010
750, capped. Pours a crystal clear pale gold with no head, lace, or legs to speak of. Very intermittent occasional nucleation activity. Pleasant mild golden apple nose, more like a slightly lemony chardonnay than an apple cider, especially given the stillness. Creamy, medium, nearly still body. Light lemon, golden apple, red apple, and very faint green apple on the mid-palate--immediately makes you wonder what you could do with pork, chicken, or even fish if you used this as a replacement for white wine in a sauce.
