Val wanted to try another cider and this was the next in line. Let’s see how it was.
Trivia: According to brewbound.com, “Nine Pin Ciderworks, New York’s first farm cidery, announced the release of Cucumber Lime Light Cider, the first in the company’s new light cider series that honors New York cider’s colonial roots. In colonial New York, ciderkin, as it was called, was produced by soaking the remaining apple pomace from the apple press in water. The beverage was widely produced during America’s colonial era and was often served with breakfast. Ciderkin was nearly lost to history due to the popularization of beer in the 19th century and Prohibition in the first half of the 20th century. Today, with the cider revolution in full force, Nine Pin continues to lead the cider manufacturing industry with its Cucumber Lime Light Cider, a modern take on the historical New York ciderkin. Nine Pin’s Cucumber Lime Light Cider is made from 100 percent New York apples and contains fresh water, cucumber, and lime. This gluten-free cider has only 110 calories per 12 oz. serving with a low ABV of 4.3 percent.”
Random: We picked this one up during a trip to Half Time Beverage in Mamaroneck.
This cider poured with no head on top of a clear, bright yellow body. There was limited carbonation visible through the body. The nose had some green apples along with cucumber water and lime zest. The flavor was light, which was expected. It had green apple peel and cucumber slices. There was some lime flavor as well. It reminded me of watered down cider. The body was very light and it could have used more carbonation. The finish was instantaneous. This wasn’t great and I wouldn’t have this again.
