I’m watching the last disc of “Gangland” and they’re discussing a New Jersey gang. As I’m watching this, I’m thinking that the landscape they’re showing looks relatively familiar. Then, they showed the “Trenton Makes” bridge. I then realize, they’re discussing a gang in Trenton. Wonderful. Anyways, this is a cider that I picked up a sixer of for the other half. This one has been sitting in the back of the fridge since December, so I hope it held up. Let’s see how it was.
Trivia: According to the brewery website, “This cider is light in body and features mouthwatering raspberry notes. It retains a dry and sparkling finish.”
Random: We have a few woodpeckers here and they are so loud right now, it’s ridiculous.
This cider poured with a half a finger of white head that dissipated instantly. It left absolutely no lacing on the glass. The body was a clear, light pink color with moderate carbonation. The nose was like taking a huge sniff of raspberry liqueur with a touch of apple behind it. It had a lot of sweetness to it as well. The taste started with the predictable raspberry notes, which for once, were like natural raspberries and not raspberry extract. Some tartness came through and then light apple notes. It had a very light body with moderate carbonation and would have benefitted from more. The finish was quick with raspberry. This was $1.17 a bottle (on sale), which broke down to $.10 an ounce, which was a good deal for a cider that was an easy drinker, albeit relatively simplistic.
