The latest limited release from 2 Towns Ciderhouse arrived at the doorstep yesterday, and it’s something of a crossover cider: Sun’s Out Saison.
Here’s a snip from the press release:
Sun’s Out Saison is made with tart, fresh-pressed Northwest apples fermented on peaches with an authentic French saison yeast. Roll up your sleeves, or better yet, rip ‘em off to get ready for this unfiltered, dry, slightly spicy and phenolic cider, with lots of big, clean, fresh-peach aromatics. Savor liquid sunshine from Oregon’s leading craft cider producer.
There’s “over 46 pounds” of peaches added per barrel, and I’m definitely intrigued by the use of a saison yeast to brew this. Drinking soon.
