Dragon Fruit comes in a tall black 19.2 fl oz can with 2 awesome golden dragons pictured surrounded with dragon fruit in bloom. It is a cider to be served cold. Has a story “When dragons roamed the land...” Made in Oregon. So it is a micro brew.

Had to pop it open. Tastes grand. The dragon fruit is smooth and without the bite typical of cider. Nice bubble. At 6 percent you would never guess it was an alcoholic drink. I will buy more. My housemate wants the empty can. Thinks it is cool looking.

Yes. Avid cider company makes it. Have no idea where Bend, Oregon is. Probably named for a bend in the road. Oregon is known for mom and pop micro brews.

The legend of the cider reads "When dragons roamed the land, warriors hunted the prized dragon fruit.
Northwest apples, raspberries, and dragonfruit combine in this fruit forward off dry cider. The dragon fruits cactus like neon magenta skin and lime green scales mimic the mythical dragon. Those that feast of the flesh, which has a mild kiwi sorbet flavor, will be endowed the strength and ferocity of the dragon. Side effects include breathing fire and other unknowns"
I'll see if it's made it this far. This town just loves niche breweries

My housemate stole it when I was texting you. Took a sip. Now will not give it back! I would give her chase, but she runs faster than I do. Grrrrrrrr!

She is tall. Very athletic and fast. Your dragons will have to go in a delta wing dive to catch her.

Almost supper time and my turn to cook. Should I serve crow? Specialty market only 5 blocks away. Need some things (including a few dragon fruit).

Fun chat. Aloha.
