Brewery: B. Nektar, Ferndale, MI
Beer Style: Cider
Well this one blew my mind. Who knew cider could taste so good? I’m excited to try the other one I have from these guys later tonight.
The cherry in this is really good, a good mix of tart and sweet without being overwhelming. I’ve always had my eye on this because I’ve heard nothing but good things about B. Nektar. And after having it, I agree — this cider is amazing and so is the cidery/meadery that makes it. I have nothing but good things to say. The artwork is something to look at too, isn’t it?
Cherry Hard Cider
Essential elements– Apple, cherry
Appearance – Deep pink and clear with a light, lacy head that quickly dissipates.
Aroma – Crisp, clean apple cider, round, ripe tart cherry.
Experience – Tart cherry sweetness up front with full, yet crisp fermented cider. Heavy apple skin compliments the cherry. Sweet, creamy honey rounds the flavor and balances the tartness of the cherry. Light carbonation lifts the flavor while the honey smooths the overall mouthfeel. Finishes crisp and clean.
Package: 500ml bottles and 1/6 barrel kegs.
Food Pairings: Compliments many rich, fatty foods like bacon, barbecue, burgers, avocado and high-fat blue cheeses. Also pairs well with sweet foods like ice cream and cake/cupcakes.
