It’s the end of April and domestic blueberries are officially in action. Most of the southern states will begin harvesting next month and, before we know it, the superfood will be in its peak season of June through July. As we begin dreaming of sandals, barbecues and long warm evenings, here are some blushing blueberry-infused ciders to get you in that summertime state-of-mind.
Blue Moon Rizin’ | Urban Orchard Cider | Asheville, NC
If you find yourself in the Asheville area this summer, Urban Orchard Cider may be a place you need to visit. Their production process has a particular approach: a maturation phase of eight to 12 months, to bypass filtering and allow flavors to properly combine. And it’s slow and steady for this sipper — the Blue Moon Rizin’ ferments for three months on Oktoberfest lager yeast with organic Cedar Grove blueberries. The result? A semi-sweet experience with a delicate spice of cardamom.
