Rekorderlig has one of the widest ranges of fruit flavoured pear ciders. We’d first tried their ciders during a trip to Kempsey many years back, but we have not the slightest recollection of the flavour we tried or whether we enjoyed it. So, a taste of the Rekorderlig Premium Passionfruit Cider was in order. We very much enjoy the tangy tartness of passionfruit.
The cider is a translucent palest of pale yellows with an aromatic, tropical nose of sweet and tart passionfruit and a gentle effervescence. Consumed ice-cold, tropical fruity notes emerge in the head but aren’t immediately recognisable as passionfruit. As the sweetness develops in the body, the fruity notes recall that of a very sweet passionfruit without its defining tartness and instead resembles the flavour of peaches. The cider leaves a sweet, dry finish, with the characteristic flavour and light acidity of a pear cider absent throughout.
While it’s pleasant, we’re disappointed by the lack of pear cider notes and of a defining flavour in this cider.
This bottle of Rekorderlig Premium Passionfruit Cider contained 330ml. It was bottled in Sweden and purchased in Sydney, Australia in 2017.
