Inspired by traditional Basque sidra, this cider is made with Dolgo crabapples, wild-yeast fermented and allowed to mature with native bacteria - softening the acidic bite typical of Dolgos while providing a touch of the sour, funky character typical of sidra. Meyer lemon and quince, with pineapple and clove back-notes.
