Local Cider Deemed Good Accompaniment for Life in a Two Room Clay Hut with a Sheep

Posted by on November 16, 2012

Between each of have having some illnesses, likely nothing as bad as GEG had this summer, some odd work schedules  and a general sense of disruption to our “normal” lives, we haven’t been consuming many adult beverages of late.  Since this is Virginia’s first ever Cider Week, however, we knew we had to break this pattern.  We try to always have a few VA ciders in the house at all times, but the one I gravitated to on this night was the Farmhouse Dry from Potter’s Craft Cider.

I’ve long thought that this cider would be the perfect accompanyment to a game of Agricola, even if GEG disagrees with me on this one.  This gave us a chance to test it out.  Here’s my logic…. First, Agricola is a complex game, so you need to keep your wits about you.  That means you can’t have any adult beverages with over the top alcohol levels.  Sharing a bottle of cider is perfect for a situation like this.  Second, Agricola is a game about farming and cider was traditionally a DIY fermented beverage that was a staple for everyone but would definitely be expected in a farming household.  Third, this cider is called Farmhouse Dry - could the fit be any better?  Finally, it’s just tasty.

Clearly, I was happy with this cider and board game pairing.  You might, however, be wondering about this cider.  As with previous times having it, the nose and flavors both appealed to me.  It wasn’t the most complex cider I’ve ever had, but it was pleasant, refreshing, and enjoyable.  On the nose, I found notes of lemon and peach with a hint of that fermented fruit smell that just speaks of fall and cider and home to me.  On the palate, it struck me as light with a hint of earthiness I almost always get form cider.  Here the apple notes were more noticeable, but some peach and lemon were still in the mix.

The one disappointment for me with this bottle was that it was almost flat.  Given my prior experience with hard ciders, and this one in particular, I wasn’t expecting sparkling wine level carbonation, but there was less fizz than I’ve become used to and expected.  I know that still ciders are a real thing, but I just don’t know what to make of them, so they always throw me off – even when it’s unintended as with this flat bottle.

Oh well, these things happen, and it won’t stop me from picking up more bottles in the future or getting a glass if it’s on tap in a restaurant.  Now I just need to try to wait patiently until I can buy a bottle of that oak aged cider they’ve just blended together…

    MERRY CHRISTMAS, VWD & GEG! I miss y’all something powerful! I ain’t been doing much VA wine lately, either. Between constant OT hours at work and the creeping crud upper respiratory infection that is gripping much of the country this season, I have been to ‘nary a winery for a couple of months.
