Ciderboys Peach County Apple Peach Hard Cider

Posted: April 28, 2016 in Cider, Reviews, Stevens Point Brewery

Tonight’s selection is the last one from the mixed-twelve pack of Ciderboys cider. I find that peach flavored things (beer or cider) tend to either be great or terrible, and there is very little middle ground. This cider is no exception…

ABV: 5%

Style: Cider

Trivia: According to the brewery website, “Thirst quenching apple and ripe, fuzzy peach. The ice chill of the bottle smiles at the heat of the day. Thirst quenching apple and ripe, fuzzy peach collide in a fantasy blend. Crank up the piano keys. Dance if you want to. When summer breezes soar under the light of a crescent moon, this is your party.”

Random: This is available March 1st through August 31st.

This cider poured with a one finger, pure white head. It went away slowly and left no lacing on the glass. The body was a warm, orange color with light carbonation visible. The nose was filled with lots of artificial peach flavoring. It overwhelmed any other flavor in the nose. The taste had a touch more balance, but not much. It started with the same peach flavoring that had a certain aspect of sweetener. Then, it went into carbonated apple juice that was also incredibly sweet. The body was on the thicker side with light carbonation. It had a long, sickeningly sweet finish with the same peach flavoring. A bottle of this was $1.50 ($.12 per ounce), which isn’t a bad price, if this was drinkable. Conceptually, a peach/apple cider sounded great. But, the execution on this cider was lacking. This is a cider that I would avoid, even if you really enjoy peach flavored things.
