Tonight I am sharing an Anthem Cider with Sarah. This is their straight up apple cider. It smells like a white wine, fruity, and dry with a bit of apple blossom. The taste is fresh, green, and vinous. There is a bit of an apple tinged aftertaste that lingers more than I expected. I like my cider crisp.
This is what Sarah is drinking this week. In her own words:
This past Saturday was the first day back for the PSU farmers’ market! To celebrate we picked up this Anthem Pear Cider by the same people who make Wandering Aengus cider. It was fun to be able to taste something new from them, since the Anthem line had previously not been available in a bottle. The cider is a nicely balanced, dry one. I am not the biggest fan of pear in general, but this has nice flavor without the cloying sweetness that most pear-flavored items have.
