Review of Snow Capped Colorado Peach. It is my first time trying this, but I’ve had their 6130′ Dry in 2016, and more recently, Gold Rush.
<This is a review of a sample can provided to Cider Says by Snow Capped. Although I will take care to treat it the same as any other review, there is always the potential for bias as I received this for free. The only consideration I knowingly made was pushing this up in my cider review que, considering it is a new release and the info may be helpful for folks deciding to purchase it. I love free stuff, especially cider! Want your cider or cider-related product reviewed here? Contact me.>

Cider Description: Our high altitude peaches and apples unite for semi sweet richness, powerful fresh aromatic nose and smooth tart finish.
Cidery Description: We craft our ciders using stone fruit, heritage and cider specific apples grown in our 6,130 ft. elevation Colorado orchards. At the core of our ciders is a long history in fruit growing. For over a century and five generations our family has respected and developed the land entrusted to us. Today we are one of the largest apple producers in Colorado Growing fruit is both a passion and a privilege. Through generations we have succeeded in a high elevation environment, this is one of the most labor intensive, riskiest and extreme environments to grow apples, with fewer successful outcomes.
