Cider Creek Original Farmhouse Cider

Cider Creek Original Farmhouse Cider

This past Saturday we met the owners of Cider Creek at Julio’s Cider Fest. I was excited to tell them that I had recently bought a bottle of their Original Farmhouse Cider and that it was waiting for me in my fridge at home. They were very friendly and enjoyed telling me about their process of handpicking and pressing the apples on their farm in upstate NY.

The first thing you will notice with this cider is the carbonation. This is the most effervescent cider I’ve ever seen. There is also a small amount of sediment. The scent is sweet and appley. The flavor is very balanced and really grew on me as I drank the bottle. 6.9% ABV.

I was also able to try their Saison Reserve cider at the fest and enjoyed it very much.

Far From The Tree Rind

Far From The Tree Rind

Hey everyone. It’s Melissa. I know I haven’t posted a cider review in a long time. I have a backlog of cider to review, and tonight I’m trying to get back to it with a bottle of Far From The Tree Rind.

Far From the Tree is a Salem, MA cider company and as you may recall, Josh and I visited them this past spring.

The first thing I noticed about Rind was that there was tons of sediment in the bottle. It has the scent of citrus, mixed with cloves. It’s a saison style cider. It also has some hints of coriander and finishes a little tart. Very unique! I like it a lot, but I don’t know if it is something I would drink more than one bottle of.
