From Stormalong’s Rare Apple series of 2020. Made from Esopus Spitzenberg apples. Deep golden color, flavorful with some bitterness. Dry but not searingly so.

This cider has a hazy, deep golden pour with strong aromas of sweet apple reminiscent of golden delicious aromas on the nose. It has a nice apple flavor up front followed by acidity and a little funk with a tannic finish. It is made with Esopus Spitzenburg, Calville Blanc d’hiver, Chisel Jersey, Ribston Pippin, Dabinett, and Golden Russet heirloom apples. I did not care for the initial sip but with each subsequent drink the cider grew on me. This is a nice dry cider when sweet is not on your agenda.
