COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Orchard Gate Gold is fermented naturally in small artisanal batches from a proprietary blend of organic apples grown here at our Koan Family Orchards in Michigan. We have produced hard ciders here since the 1860s. This is the same traditional recipe that helped save our farm during the great depression. There will be slight variations from batch to batch, just as nature makes no two apples alike! Enjoy our authentic hand bottled American Farmhouse "Scrumpy" Cider with family, friends & food.

shadey (2085) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - AUG 16, 2008
Pour is a bright yellow/gold. Aroma is obvious able cider with a good tart character. The flavor is earthy and fairly complex for a hard cider. Nice.

roder60 (1289) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 27, 2008
Pours an orange yellow color with some slight carbonation that quickly dissapates. Aroma is sweet candied apples. Very sweet flavor, but of fizz on the tongue, alcohol present when swalled. Brown sugar finish. Overall, interesting taste.

Suttree (6191) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - JUL 13, 2008
Smells like, well, apples, as one might guess. flavor is apples, too, and very clean and not cloying or medicinal. Some sugary notes, too. Also seems a bit heavy, too. Tasty, but definately not something to drink a lot of at on sittiing.

doboy (424) - Morehead City, North Carolina, USA - JUL 2, 2008
I really liked this! Scrumpy’s is an upscale cider. pours a nice golden color with an apple nose that is somewhat sour. It’s an easy drinking apple juice, with just the right amount of sweetness. I found it very refreshing and smooth. I’m keeping one in the Fridge all summer!

Optigon (562) - Bloomington, Indiana, USA - MAY 29, 2008
Pours gold/yellow with a fine, white head. Aroma is mildly sour, akin to vinegar. Flavor is sweet with a very unique flavor. Very tasty and very interesting.

walter (359) - Staunton, Virginia, USA - MAY 19, 2008
Gold with white head that dies away completely. Aroma is sweet apple, with a hint of rotten apple in the background. Flavor is sweet, fresh apple, with a touch of sour twang and alcohol. Nice carbonation, and a bit of yeast pokes through toward the end of the bottle. Tasty, for sure, but not all that interesting.
