Bright golden honey colour revealing floral blossom, ripe apple and honeyed scents. Sweet, honeyed apple flavours on the palate are tempered by a warming sensation imparted by the 8% blend of Ironworks Bluenose Rum in the mix.
Striking and appealing aromatic character is hard to describe. Strong floral and barely discernable herbal scents mix with subtle tree fruits, evolving on the palate to lightly sweet pear flavour with contrasting dry grip and a long pear-fruit finish.
Shy-scented apple with yellow apple flavour, gentle effervescence and a refreshingly light dry finish.
Made from traditional apples such as Gravenstein, Golden Russet and Northern Spy, this cider is finished by adding freshly pressed apples to add colour and fresh apple flavour. It offers aromatic scents of honeyed ripe apples with gentle fizz, lightly sweet apple flavours, balancing dry grip and an off-dry finish.
Wife and husband team Michelle and Steve Faris make this Aurora-born cider with a touch of honey from a Halton family farm. This full-bodied sparkler is dripping with notes of rich dessert apples, pie crust and a refreshing hit of acidity.
One of the driest craft ciders readily available in Ontario grocery and liquor stores comes from Kitchener-Waterloo’s only cidery, founded in 2014. Reminiscent of an off-dry Riesling with aromas of white lily and apple, and a bright [what?] of wet stone and zingy citrus.
A decent starter cider at a good price from Andrew Peller made from Nova Scotia apples with a nose of fresh apples and lightly spritzed. It fills the mouth with McIntosh apple flavours in an almost-still style after the bubbles quickly disappear on the palate. There is sweetness here along with apple goodness but could use a little more zippy acidity.
