COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Seven varieties of American heirloom apples blend to create a complex hard cider. It’s fruity yet acidic, with hints of elderflower, spice and honey with a long finish and a lot of lingering flavor complexity.

Golden Russet, Baldwin, Northern Spy, McIntosh, Rhode Island Greening, Winesap, and Newton Pippin grown on site at Lagoner Farms were ripened until they had achieved the desired flavor, sugar and acidity for this blend. They were then pressed and fermented shortly after harvesting to take advantage of the strong attributes each apple brings to the mix. Embark Craft Ciderworks’ American Heirloom hard cider pays tribute to hard cider’s Colonial role as the drink of choice by returning these seven heirloom apple varieties to their rightful place–in the glass.

On tap at Lost Borough. Pours a clear gold with a thin white head. Bright apple on the nose, a bit of fruit and soft acidity. Medium bodied, soft acidity, light and tart. Crisp and tangy, soft acid. Slow acid into the finish, tangy with some long acid that lingers. Easy drinking, nice balance of sweetness and acid.

MicroGrog (409) - FT: Stale Polotmavý in Queens, New York, USA - FEB 11, 2017
Bottle from WFB. Pint glass pour. Clear, pale gold body. Smells of corn, white grapes, banana & clove yeasty esters. Super acidic, moderately tart, green, floral. Bitter, drying tannins. Strong, stiff, boozy, sulfites, leftover yeast flavors. Dusty residue. Bold flavors, but it’s just not blended well. It’s a struggle to drink much of this.

Lukaduke (3206) - Gray, Maine, USA - OCT 3, 2016
Pours a very pale almost clear color with lots of rising bubbles. Aroma is almost non-existent. Very subtle light apple notes but almost smells more like seltzer than apple. Palate follows with a very light spritzy mouthfeel. Flavors are subdued and slightly watery considering the complexity of heirloom apples offered in the mix. Not bad but nothing really redeeming about this whatsoever.

Tap at the cidery. Pale gold with bubbles. Very dry nose, slightly funky. Simple and highly attenuated. Refreshing with a touch of apple flavor, but too dry for me. This was the strongest of the flights, and my least favorite.
