Cider Review – Leprechaun Hard Cider | Crafty And The Beast

The first flavor I detected was white grape followed quickly by unripe pear and dried flowers. Botanical like. Tannins were soft enough to please most palates. The balanced acidity provided a blank canvas for the band aid – like cellar profile. BTW, this is a good quality to have for artisanal ...
