COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Spark! has been a customer favorite for several years. Made with Alpenfire’s traditional cider apples and Lazy J’s heirloom varieties it is the perfect blend of old world and new world cider. Just enough tannin to keep it interesting and just the right acidity to keep it refreshingly light.

Bottle. Slight funk aroma, apples, and champagne. Flavor is upfront medium sweetness and oak, finishes dry, and a little bit of alcohol on the breath. Smooth and elegant with the right level of sweetness. 8.9% well hidden but evident on my breath.

Bottle pour at Brouwer’s, Seattle. Bright, cloudy yellow. Melon and apricot fruity aroma. Bright, funky apple, rich and full. Delicious.

I was really happy with this. Beautiful blend of sweet and tart, nice darker color. Nice fine carbonation. Will seek this out always. I think aside from Ice Cider, the best cider I’ve yet encountered.

$12 at Birra Pub. This is nice and dry for a straight Apple beer. It was definitely higher in ABV. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Amazing! Semi-sweet, soft tannins, full, juicy body, dry finish. Aroma is of standing in the middle of an orchard and taking a deep breath. A perfect cider.

Really nice cider pouring a nice crisp gold - The flavor is very similar to some of the English ciders but not nearly as dry. What was enjoyable was the authentic apple flavor that wasn’t overpowered by sweetness like many on the market or the overuse of dryness. It’s a very sincere to the point organic cider and well worth the trip to Seattle to bring back to California :)

Bottle at PIB 2015, pours a clear feint blonde with a small white head. Aroma brings out red apple skins and a touch of champagne funk. Flavour of light-to-medium sweetness, with red apple skins, a touch of funk, and some light citrus. Really well-designed and balanced. Very good stuff.

750 ml bottle from the Beer Authority.

Light golden pour, amply carbonated. Inviting nose: rich apple with white wine elements. (I’ve really got to get better at cider descriptions!) The flavor is semi-sweet, exactly as advertised, with this lovely apple "bite", apple skins through the middle, and none of the off-flavored alcohols that one finds in the mass-produced ciders. The touch of sugar well into the close is a surprise and delight. Plenty going on in this flavor.

This is a really delightful cider on the sweetish side. At 9% it is super stealth and could be very dangerous.

Bottle. Light amber pour, clear, aroma of apples with nice earthy notes. Flavor is balanced, apples, light citrus, subtle complexities that add to the overall success of this. Light and refreshing but still substantial and interesting. Really nice cider. Pricy but a good one for special occassions.
