Somersby Blackberry Cider

Fruity drinks are deli­cious. And Somersby Blackberry Cider is the per­fect fruity refresh­ment for sum­mer.

The cider is a beau­ti­ful trans­lu­cent pink with a sweet fruity head and a mod­er­ate effer­ves­cence. Consumed ice-cold, a sweet, bright and nat­ur­al fla­vour of black­berry comes through that devel­ops into a crisp and refresh­ing body with a very slight bit­ter­ness and astrin­gency in the fin­ish, leav­ing lightly sweet black­berry notes linger­ing long on the pal­ate. There is no mis­tak­ing that this is a black­berry fla­voured cider, with prom­in­ent notes from the head to the fin­ish. The beau­ti­fully fla­voured sweet berry notes make this a won­der­fully easy and deli­cious drink to con­sume with the slightly astrin­gent fin­ish being the only thing slow­ing you down between sips and stop­ping you from guzz­ling it like a soft drink.

The only down­side is that this cider is a rel­at­ively new product and sold for about twice as expens­ive as apple and pear ciders.

This bottle of Somersby Blackberry Cider con­tained 330ml. It was bottled in Australia and pur­chased in Sydney, Australia in 2017.
