Decideret Cider(DK) - Lystig 2018, Semi Dry Wild Fermented Cider 5,5%, 33cl
Decideret Cider is a young craft cidery from the harbour in Copenhagen.
Since Denmark has not got a tradition of cider making but do have a great variety of eating apples, these guys from Decideret produces wild fermented ciders with those kind of apples, collected from private gardens.
Because of the lack of cider apples, and therefor a lack of strong tradition, they can experiment and stretching out the boundaries of cider making.
Think of it like how the US has revolutionised craft beer, with English, German and Belgian brew traditions, focussing more on the longevity of fermentation and the strict rules of the Reinheitsgebot, it were the American micro brewers that added new hops, oats and even lactose to their beers.
This kind of experimentation is what you see back in the range of ciders from the new wave of young cider making, always wild fermented but looking for ways to make it exciting again.
Lystig (2018) is a crisp and clean semi dry cider that is super crushable. The fresh acidity is balanced out with a bit of residual sugar and vinous body from the wild fermentation.
