Snow Capped Colorado Peach

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.

First Impression:  Medium amber hue.  Low to moderate carbonation.  Smells non-specifically fruity.

Tasting Notes:  Semi-sweet.  Medium bodied.  Low to moderate tartness.  Moderate acidity.  No bitterness, sourness, funk, or tannins.  Notes of tart green apple and stone fruit with a hint of lemon.  Low apple flavor.  Low to moderate complexity.  Moderate overall flavor intensity.  High sessionability.

My Opinion:  I liked it.  Nice peach flavor, and sweet but not too sweet.

Most Similar to:  Incline White Peach (but sweeter & less tart)

Closing Notes:  Next up I have their Cherry, Plum Lemongrass, Jalapearno, and 6130′ Dry varieties.
