Blackthorn Cider

I'm not usually a cider drinker but I do like the occasional cider or perry.
This being summer (a lousy one so far) and just starting vacation, I thought I would give one a try.
I may not be doing it justice but here we go.

No head but there are carbonation bubble rising in the apple juice coloured beverage.
The aroma is of sour apples.
Tastes are not much like the aroma. There is a bright sour apple flavour with a very nice dry finish. Quite sharp tasting and sometimes almost vinegar like in the mouth.
Some subtle sweetness and an almost white wine taste to it.
Not too bad at all and quite nice on a warm day.

Southern Tier - Imperial Gemini

Pours a slightly cloudy peach colour with a full creamy and lasting off white head.
Aroma of fruit, berries and peach. Hints of pine and grapefruit with a touch of earth.
Feel is nice and full, creamy and rich.
Taste is lovely. A solid slightly sweet malt base with a touch of chocolate and malted milk. Then comes a fresh and bright citrus hop taste, lot's of grapefruit and pine resin. Hints of peach and dark berries are all through the taste.
The finish is a bit dry, the grapefruit and pine linger nicely and the light sweet notes remain but my mouth is left clean and ready for another sip.
A very nice beer, the high alcohol content can be dangerous in this one because it is not noticeable.
I like it a lot. Glad I have more tucked away.

Beer Quote of the day

Oh I have been to Ludlow fair, and left my necktie God knows where. And carried half way home, or near, pints and quarts of Ludlow beer.

— Alfred Edward Housman

(Sounds like a place to visit.)
