COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Private Reserve Ginger combines a crisp apple cider with sharp ginger and citrus undertones. This perfect balance in taste pairs excellently with chicken, spicy stir-fry, and fruit salad.

Apple nose, semi sweet and well rounded. Crystal clear, pale greenish-yellow. Even blend of apple and ginger, with unexpected and pleasant appearances of bubble gum. Not hot or spicy. Ginger is used very well to compliment the cider rather than dominate it. Not as intense as it could be, but nice balance.

12oz bottle poured into bottle. Wasnít really expecting ginger in this one but it was there! The ginger apple spice mix goes really well together.

Nose is rather medicinal. Mouth feel is denser than most ciders. Higher alcohol is not noticeable. Nice blend of two old-time traditions, ginger beer and cider. Substantial and refreshing. Iím not one to have cider with ice, but this one has enough flavor and body to stand up to that.

Bottle. Fresh apple and candied ginger aroma. Clear pale yellow. Sweet / tart apple and slightly spicy ginger flavor. Light crisp body, on the sweet side of dry. Iím a huge ginger fan, so I dug this in a big way.

Body is light-medium with a soft bubbly carbonation. Ends with more apple juice, ripe apple, ginger notes and candied fruit.
