UrbanTree Cidery, Atlanta
Available in 750 mL swing top bottles
Habanero Haze is a hard cider that’s infused with fresh ginger and habanero peppers to create what Urban Tree Cidery describes as “a well-rounded, complex beverage with a spicy kick.”
I detected more heat in the nose than on the palate. But it is slightly hazy. And the ginger and pepper play well together to create a distinctly spicy character, with aromas and flavors of ripe apples, before a pleasing sweet-tart finish.
Try Habanero Haze with fresh cheeses, quesadillas, or with desserts like apple crisp or deep dish apple pie.
