Overall Thoughts and Rating
Overall, I really enjoyed For Shore. The coriander gave the cider a unique taste, as well as a refreshing feel. The slightly salty flavor at the end nicely complemented the coriander, helping to amplify its flavor. With a sweet beginning and crisp finish, For Shore also felt well balanced. This is a very drinkable cider and one that I will certainly be drinking again.
Overall, I really liked the uniqueness of For Shore. The coriander and sea salt was a nice, refreshing combination. It is also a light cider, making it a perfect drink to have while lounging on a beach. I would definitely enjoy having multiple glasses of this back to back.
