Revel - Flower Power (Cider w/ Marigold & Pineapple Flowers) / 750mL
Revel Cider (Guelph, ON)
Marigolds are citrus and spice. Pineapple flowers are, well, pineapple-y. They don't come from pineapple plants, they are a species related to chamomile. Revel made a tincture with each and added them to a barrel aged cider from Ida Red apples. It smells like aged honey, lemon zest and orange creamsicles, garnished with chamomile blossoms. Those sweet notes are balanced by a delicate astringency, like a whisper of juniper, or orange pith. The high abv gives it weight and wine-like body. Flower Power is is the truest essence of these summer blossoms.
