Ciders Reviews

Cidrerie Arista Pomme de Coeur
98 points
Deep golden amber color. Spicy apple sauce aroma with a silky, fruity medium-to-full body and a long, tangy, and pure honeyed apple and fresh apple cider finish. A delicious and pure cider that is sure to please, especially with desserts.
Cidre Beaupré Rosé Cider
95 points
Nickel pink color. Aromas and flavors of green apples, raspberries, passionfruit, cream, and rubber sap with a silky, lightly effervescent fruity medium body and a tangy sour cherry and earth accented finish. A charming, very different cider that drinks like a rosé Vinho Verde wine.
Ciderboys Cider Company Magic Apple
92 points
Amber color. Attractive aromas of fresh strawberry tart and apple marmalade with a crisp, supple, fruity medium-to-full body and a tangy, mouthwatering strawberry and apple sorbet finish. Great purity and vibrancy.
CSR Clos Normand Hard Cider
92 points
Golden amber color. Aromas of dark caramelized apples, golden raisins, honeycomb, and creme brulee crust with a supple, moderately carbonated, fruity-yet-dry medium body and a tangy, earthy, praline and limestone accented finish. A nicely composed cider for the table.
Angry Orchard Elderflower Cider
89 points
Golden yellow color. Exotic aromas and flavors of cedar incense, elderflower, apple pie, Asian BBQ rub (cardamom, turmeric, green peppercorn), and floral herbal talc are intriguing with a supple, fruity-yet-dry medium-to-full body and a lychee and herbal tea accented finish. Fun.
Cidrerie Arista Dublins Pub
89 points
Pale yellow straw color. Aromas sweet honeyed apple, apple chip, and baby oil aromas with a fruity, frothy medium body and a super clean and refreshing honeycrisp apple flavor with a kiwi accent. Very tasty.
Spire Mountain Cider Dark & Dry Apple Cider
87 points
Ruddy mahogany color. Aromas and flavors of dried apple and pear, chestnut honey, and praline with a fruity sweet, lightly effervescent light-to-medium body and a relaxed brown sugar and earth finish. Pleasant if a little understated, and "semi-hard-like".
Thatchers Cider Co. Green Goblin Oak Aged Cider
86 points
Golden amber color. Aromas of dried apples, nougat, and moss with a crisp, dryish light-to-medium body and a honeyed apple granita, starfruit, nutshell and mineral nuanced finish. A nice dry, earthy cider.
