The other half and I have been seriously house hunting. We got a real estate agent and spent all of Sunday going to look at houses. We really want something with character and we’re both quite picky, so this has been quite the experience so far. We looked at this partially renovated Victorian that I liked conceptually, but was definitely not practical. The reason I bring this up is because the other half is so into looking at houses online right now that’s she’s letting me control the remote control. Anyways, this is a cider that I picked up for her and she was kind enough to let me review. Let’s see how it was.

ABV: 4%

Style: Cider

Trivia: According to the brewery website, “¿Quién no ha ido alguna vez a recoger moras?
Con un toque de mora que te hará recordar aquellas excursiones al campo.”

Random: I love blackberries. I love when desserts include them.

This cider poured a deep and dark purple color with no head on top. It obviously left no lacing on the glass. There was moderate carbonation visible on it as well. The nose had a definitely sweet berry note to it, but then it had a marked sour note as well. The taste was slightly better. There were big notes of blackberry and pear. There was still a tart note as well that wasn’t all that pleasant. I didn’t get much apple, if any to it. The body was on the medium side with high carbonation. The finish was quick with berries and pear. This was a cider that I was not a fan of at all. I wouldn’t have this one again.
