Far From the Tree Sprig

Far From the Tree Sprig

Tonight Josh has a late work meeting so I have to entertain myself. I’ve decided to relax by drinking a cider and reading. I’m a huge reader. If you are too you should join me on Goodreads. I love that site. The cider I chose is a bottle of Sprig from Far From the Tree.

Sprig pours a very pale color and has lots of carbonation. It smells like hops, almost citrusy. But, lucky for me, it doesn’t taste hoppy. There is a lovely light mint flavor, no apple flavor at all. This cider is not sweet but dry. It has a delicate, pleasant after taste. It’s a nice change of pace for the sweet ciders that I usually drink. In fact, this is the cider you should try if you are a beer drinker who doesn’t like cider.

Far From the Tree Roots

Far From the Tree Roots

This morning I went to yoga and it kicked my butt (in a good way). The rest of the day was spent prepping for an upcoming Ecolissa fashion show. Working hard makes me thirsty. Luckily, the other day Josh and I visited Far From the Tree, A new cidery in Salem, MA, and they were kind enough to give me a bottle of Roots and a bottle of Sprig to review.

Tonight I’m drinking Roots. It is full flavored, crisp, and dry. I’m fully enjoying it. It’s not sweet so it would be a great cider to drink with dinner.

I’m so happy to have more great local cider options! Keep them coming!
