Chaos Cider Sweet Peach

Maker: Verterra Winery, Leland, Michigan, USA20160510_184300-1.jpg

Style: Apple-Peach cider

ABV: 6.5%

Purchased for $13 (Michigan By the Bottle Tasting Room, Royal Oak)

Appearance: Bright gold. Very little carbonation noticeable.

Nose: Canned peaches, sweetened apple sauce.

Palate: Fresh white peaches, Golden Delicious apples, minerals, lemon thyme.

Finish: Semi dry with a tart tingle on the tongue.

Parting words: This is the third Chaos cider I’ve reviewed. Like the other fruit flavored ciders in the line, the unfermented apple cider is combined with a fruit wine base and then fermented together. That process makes it less of a flavored cider than a compound fruit wine.

It was not as sweet and sticky as I expected, but it still has enough weight to hold up to club soda and ice. Cherry Blush is more complex and frankly better than this, but Sweet Blush is still worth a try if you’re in the mood for some light patio drinking. Sweet Peach is recommended.
