LOBO Royale is our flagship small batch cider, again it is partially keeved, made with a mix of our cider apples and some of our LOBO base blend. A greater proportion of Somerset Red Streak has kept the alcohol lower 3.8% ABV, and resulted in a more "french doux" style.
By stopping with residual sweetness the apple flavour is retained and quite pronounced, but the cider apples bring a gentle tanin structure and finish, which balances this with enough acidity to balance the sweetness. The apple flavours follow and last in the mouth, quite delicious.
Bottle conditioned, preservative and gluten free. Its good with It's a delicious food cider - try with roast pork, lots of different cheeses, but it's just as good by itself!
The Royale is no cheeseburger, but it has a lot going on. - Lobo Cider
