Overall Thoughts and Rating

Julia:

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.
