Tart, bubbly, Virginia cider.
A spontaneously fermented natural sparkling cider with a blend made from Arkansas Black and smaller amounts of other apples. A distinctive looking apple, the Arkansas Black apple is deeply hued, and looks like it belongs in a story from the Brothers Grimm. Hazy, with good acidity and plenty of funk!

- In the winter of 2015/2016, the brothers created their own cocktail of wild yeasts from the Virginia Piedmont, reflecting the unique terroir of the region.
- Arkansas Black apples are extremely tart, and require plenty of time before revealing vanilla and cinnamon aromas.
