Decideret Cider(DK) - Spontan, Organic wild cider (2018 +2019), 7%, 75cl
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.
Spontan (2018+2019) is a to go to organic wild cider. You get two years in one bottle.
In 2018 they've mixed several local eating apple varieties and in November 2019 they added the fresh aromatic juice from Rød Aroma from Funed, that started a new fermentation. It macerated for a month with the peel/pomace from the Aroma apples.
Then it got bottled late November 2019, conditioned and disgorged.
It's a nice funky dry cider and a great one to start exploring Decideret Cider range with.
