Dragon's Head Columbia Crabapple 750 mL (7.4% ABV) CRACKLE CRAB AHHHH
BRONZE - 2018 Great Lakes International Cider and Perry Competition
At Dragon’s Head Cider, we have a history of working with crabapples, coaxing these high acid, boldly flavored fruits into lovely fermented beverages.
A bit of sweetness is countered by the tartness of the crabapple, producing a flavorful delight to the palate. While this cider drinks nicely on its own, we find it also makes a delicious base for some inspired cocktails.
