Double Mountain Releases Wickson Crab Cider

Double Mountain Brewery & Cidery is releasing the newest addition and what may be the best of their seasonal cider lineup. Wickson Crab apples are small and hardy, making for a phenomenal cider. A late season crab variety, the Wickson has a very tart, earthy, dry, but very juicy quality.

When pressed and fermented, much of the flavors carryover to the juice, coming across fuller and sweeter, while still drying out. While hesitant to describe this as a semi sweet, the wickson did yield to a sweeter cider than is the Double Mountain norm. This cider shares the delicious taste and smells of the wickson crab apple and is a favorite among cidery staff. Double Mountain Ciders and Perries are gluten free and available in refillable 500ML bottles and draft at our Hood River Taproom, SE Portland Taproom in the Woodstock neighborhood, and throughout the Northwest.

Wickson Crab Cider 6.9%

This late season variety is tiny on the tree, but big on flavor. Sweet, tart, and earthy, this scrappy little apple makes for a robust cider. Honeydew, ripe kiwi, and big juicy apple fill the mouth, finishing less tart and a hint of sweetness. “There is nothing small about this variety of crabapple. Wickson is bringing the sweet to balance it’s tart kick. This is a cider I am excited to sip-n-savor,” Rich Dickens, Brewer.
