Crispin Hard Apple Cider with Belgian Trappist Yeast & Organic Maple Syrup

Tuesday, August 31st, 2010

This is the second of a couple ciders that Crispin Ciders sent me to review.  As I said in my last cider review, I’m not a huge fan of ciders, mostly because the cheap homogenized macro beer versions I had tasted like crap.  I told Crispin Ciders this, but would keep an open mind to trying their ciders. The last one I tried was Crispin Honey Crisp Artisanal Reserve.  While I did enjoy most of that beer, this one is very intriguing to me, because it is made with a Trappist Ale Yeast with maple syrup.  Yup that right, a Cider fermented with a nice strain of beer yeast.

Crispin Honey Crisp Artisanal Reserve

When I got an email from Crispin cider a couple weeks back, they asked me if I would like to review their cider.  It took me a while to think about this because, one, I review beer not cider and two I only had one other cider before so I’m not really an expert.  So I said yes, lets do it.  So you are going to get the newbie cider drinker review.

Farnum Hill Semi-Dry Cider

Thursday, October 15th, 2009

I know this isn’t beer, you don’t have to tell me.  I’m not sure I’ve ever had hard cider, but when the Farnum Hill Cider maker sent me two bottles of cider I thought I’d give it a shot.  Farnum Hill is a small cider maker in western New Hampshire.  They describe themselves as not the mass marketed, college landscape cider, but one of refinement like a fine wine.  Well lets see how this stacks up against fine Beer!farnum_semidry
