As you’ve noticed if you follow this blog at all, my other half likes ciders. So, when we went to Half Time, she picked up this one and a few other variations. She opened it and was nice enough to let me review it. Let’s see how it was.
Trivia: According to the brewery website, “1911 Blueberry Hard Cider is a sparkling cider made from our family grown apples. It is perfect for someone looking for something a little bit sweeter. The flavors of apple and blueberry intertwine smoothy and result in a lasting fruity finish. Semi sweet 5.5%.”
Random: I usually like blueberry and blueberry cider sounds like a great concept.
This cider poured with a one finger, white head that dissipated quickly and left no lacing on the glass. The body was a clear, purple tint with moderate carbonation. The nose was immediately off-putting. It had an odd medicinal note that transitioned in blueberry jam. I was hoping for better with the taste, but it started a bit tart with Granny Smith apples and then went into straight out sweet blueberry jam from the jar. Those were the only notes that I got from it. The body was watery and thin and had moderate carbonation. The finish was long with the same blueberry jam. The bottle was $2.29 at Half Time, which is $.19 per ounce. For that, there are many better offerings out there. I won’t be having this again and the other half didn’t like it either.
