Availability:  semi wide release

Description:  We believe the old ways are still the best.  Our authentic dry cider is made from genuine cider apples, sourced from an old growth orchard.  So Soultree is a cider that’s crisp, natural, & real.  Because for us, quality still matters.  We know you’ll taste the difference.

Price:  $11.99 / four pack
Where Bought:  a natural grocery store in Northern CA
Where Drank:  home
How Found:  Browsing

First Impression:  Medium straw yellow hue.  Low carbonation.  Smells of apple juice concentrate and white grape.

Tasting Notes:  On the sweeter side of semi-dry.  Medium bodied.  Low tartness.  Low acidity.  No bitterness, sourness, or funk.  Hints of tannins.  Notes of apple juice concentrate, white grape, pineapple, green apple, and mineral.  Quick finish.  Moderate apple flavor.  Moderate flavor intensity.  High sessionability.  Low to moderate complexity.

My Opinion:  I thought it was pretty average.  It definitely tasted rather commercial, but wasn’t too sweet, and had some nice flavor.  I’d prefer this to a lot of the overly sweet commercial ciders.

Most Similar to:  Vermont Cider Co. Addison and William Tell Dry Hard Apple Cider, which were slightly sweeter but had some very similar flavor notes

Closing Notes:  I’m not sure if I’ll ever see cider from this cidery again, but I’d be game to try anything else they make (I’ve heard of them also making a ginger variety).

Have you tried Soultree cider?  What did you think?
