My Operations Manager is on vacation this week, which means that I will be working a lot of hours. I’m hoping that it will be a relatively slow week since a lot of people are taking vacations. After that, I go on vacation, which I’m very excited about, but I’ll go into that in another post. Anyways, Val wanted to try this cider and gave me a taste of it. Let’s see how it was.
Trivia: According to the brewery website, “Come alive to crisp apple hard cider blended with the fresh taste of strawberries, soft and deep red, backed by mouth watering sweetness and a delicate hint of tartness. This is Strawberry Magic Hard Cider kicked up with a hint of Saturday night. We blend it a little differently around here. If you’ve never tried it, get ready for the confetti.”
Random: Our strawberry plants did not yield any viable strawberries. I think the birds ate them.
This cider poured with a half a finger of thick, white head that dissipated quickly. It left very little lacing on the glass. The body was a cloudy, pink color with moderate carbonation visible. The nose was mild with notes of ripe strawberries. The taste was nice. It had the expected apple note with strawberry candy, light tartness and then sweet, strawberry jam as well. The tartness was a nice addition to the cider and a bit unexpected. The body was medium thickness with moderate carbonation. It had a quick finish with apple and strawberry. This was $1.42 for the single bottle, which came to $.12 per ounce, which isn’t a bad price at all. I really enjoyed this one and the strawberry notes really added something to it. This would make for a really nice summer cider that I could easily kill a few of. If you like strawberry, definitely give this one a shot.
