Hagen: Seductive, sexy.
Schwartz: It’s dark, cool, a little mysterious.
Hagen: There’s a refined, hidden apple to it.
Schwartz: The taste is light on apple. Hard cider should be more like this.
Cioletti: It could be any fruit. It’s fruity but not necessarily apple.
Hagen: This is my favorite; it feels balanced.
Schwartz: It’s superdry.
Cioletti: Kind of watery.
Schwartz: Maybe Mexican.
Cioletti: It could go with anything. A mixed green salad with goat cheese and walnuts.
Overall grade: A
“It smells like a gym sock. It’s funky, and I mean that in the best way possible,” says Hagen.
