Refreshing. The "tart" is pure apricot tang.

Mission Trail Cider Co. by Plum Jerkum

Paco N. is drinking a Plum Jerkum by Mission Trail Cider Co.

Sweet as it looks, with the plum fresh... yet, almost like a sour beer. Yum! Rose & Crown, Palo Alto.

Paco N. is drinking a '1876' Heirloom by Gowans Hard Cider at K & L Bistro

Leading towards a Thistly Cross, not with all the subtly, though delightful

Gowans Hard Cider by Gravenstein Heirloom

Paco N. is drinking a Gravenstein Heirloom by Gowans Hard Cider at Belly Left Coast Kitchen & Taproom

Sparkly fresh, more tannin than a pure Grav, nice bitter back for the mouthfeel finish

Angry Orchard Cider Company by Iceman

Paco N. is drinking an Iceman by Angry Orchard Cider Company at Sebastopol, CA

Nicely done for dessert, brings the sweet, not overdone -- impressive by a major label. Many thanks Katie & Jeremy!

Manoir de Grandouet by Cidre Pays d'Auge Cambremer

Paco N. is drinking a Cidre Pays d'Auge Cambremer by Manoir de Grandouet

So French, from the new Pays d'Auge cider appellation. Sweetly keeved, way bubbly, chalky bitter back bite, more funk than Normandy fare.

Thistly Cross Cider by Thistly Cross Traditional

Paco N. is drinking a Thistly Cross Traditional by Thistly Cross Cider

Thistly H Cross, one of the best ciders in the world. Wish it had a wee bit more bittersharp, though otherwise perfect. Could drink all day

Kelterei Possmann by Pure Cider

Paco N. is drinking a Pure Cider by Kelterei Possmann

Fruit-forward, sweet, drinkable though I'd prefer on a hot day. Or perhaps as a dessert? Wanted to try a German cider.

Cidres Domaine de Kervéguen by Brut

Paco N. is drinking a Brut by Cidres Domaine de Kervéguen at Upcider

Delightful. The taste is exactly how I imagine a French cidre ... bitter on the back, not too sweet, vehemently drinkable!

Carlsberg Group by Somersby Pear Cider

Paco N. is drinking a Somersby Pear Cider by Carlsberg Group at Conrad Centennial Singapore

Crisp, refreshing. Got a bit o' Jolly Rancher candy-ish flavor on the back. Mostly finished before I could review, thanks to perpetual 33°C
