This is the cider changed everything for me. The balance between all the elements ... a hallmark of Finnriver ciders. Intense, lush fruit against a hint of acidity.

I love most of Finn River ciders and this is no exception. A semi sweet that is tart! Gorgeous dark plum colour, smooth consistency in the flavor.

The nose and finish are all about the black currant and that’s a good thing. It forms a slight head when poured and shows some decent carbonation but it’s not overly effervescent when you drink it. There is a little body and a little more acid from the apple before the black currant kicks in to finish it off. I really enjoyed this cider. They did a very nice job putting this one together and now I want to find some currants to pitch in my own cider.

Simultaneously mellow and bold with a gorgeous vibrant indigo color. Rich fruity flavors of currants while still allowing the semi-tart apple to come through. The blend is fantastic and allows the highlights of both the currants and the apples to hit the palate. Lovely WA cider!
