5 Seeds Bright Apple Cider

Our cider explor­a­tions saw us focus­ing on sweet ciders at one point. And the Dan Murphy’s cider guide recom­men­ded this 5 Seeds Bright Apple Cider as it uses Gala apples that are nat­ur­ally sweet.

The cider is a trans­lu­cent golden straw col­our with a sweet apple nose and gen­er­ous car­bon­a­tion. Served chilled, crisp apple notes emer­ging smoothly in the head devel­op an intense nat­ur­al sweet­ness in the body ahead of a fra­grant and bright apple fin­ish with the sweet­ness linger­ing on the pal­ate.

Overall, this cider has the fla­vour of an apple juice with the slight­est astrin­gent kick in the fin­ish. It has a sim­il­ar fla­vour to the Thatchers Gold English Cider, but goes a step fur­ther and lacks the hint of acid­ity at the end of the sip that brings the refresh­ingly clean fin­ish. Here, the sweet fla­vour of apples is almost too much. If served over ice, the sweet­ness would mel­low and make for a refresh­ing cider packed with apple fla­vour.

This bottle of 5 Seeds Bright Apple Cider con­tained 330 ml. It was bottled in Australia and pur­chased in Sydney, Australia in 2017.
