INCONCEIVABLE!! Princess Bride dueling ciders and meet the brewer!

Amsterdam Cafe has a limited release dueling ciders from Crispin and Fox Barrel named after famous lines from The Princess Bride.

Prepare to Die is described as:

A dangerous rapier of an apple cider aged in red wine barrels and finished with Killer Bee honey and organic blood orange.

ABV: 6.5%

Poured Appearance: Very slightly cloudy.

Color: Blood orange pink with hints of orange.

Aroma: Oaky with citrus freshness and authentic crushed apple.

Flavor: Slightly oaky tannins up front lead in to a balanced presentation of fresh citrus and cidery apples with lingering tartness and a balanced, strong, slightly sweet finish .

 

As You Wish is described as:

a sublime pear cider aged in Chardonnay barrels and finished with Butterbean Honey and vanilla beans.

ABV: 6.5%

Poured Appearance: Semi-opaque, slightly cloudy.

Color: Medium straw.

Aroma: Vanilla notes up front, hints of white wine and oak, very faint Brett farmhouse. Faint florals.

Flavor: Hint of Brettanomyces, oak up front moving in to soft pear and honey, with a rounded vanilla and ever so slightly creamy mouth-feel.

 

These Ciders are meant to be paired, I plan on ordering both and switching between them.

 

Amsterdam is offering this to us for $4 a pour as well as happy hour price all night for their draft beers but you have to have a name tag. See me before you order.

 

If that wasn't enough Crispin's head brewer will be there talking about cider and answering questions.

 

I'll be wearing a group T-shirt, you can get yours here
