Falconer's Lumberjack Hard Cider
Falconer's Lumberjack Hard Cider Minnesota Apple (6.5% alcohol by volume) is made from Minnesota apples, sulfites and potassium sorbate. Mild funk seasons a mild apple aroma. It pours brilliant pale gold permeated by streams of slowly rising bubbles. The cider is crisp, semi-sweet and Granny Smith apple tart. The flavors include apple, apple skin, a dash of McIntosh apple, traces of dark sugar, a hint of butter and some mild wine character. Some tannins on the finish provide a slight astringent touch and some mild drying. The carbonation is a little above moderate. The tartness, tannins and sweetness all work together to make a pleasant, refreshing drink with complex, layers apple flavors. I rate it 80.
