Somersby Cloudy Apple Cider

This is Somersby Cloudy Apple Cider, a new addi­tion to the Somersby line. We’re such fans of the oth­er fla­vours — Apple, Pear, and Blackberry — that this new one had us all excited even though it’s mar­keted as semi-sweet and we’re gen­er­ally fans of sweet ciders. If Somersby made it, it was likely we’d enjoy it.

The cider is a semi-trans­lu­cent golden straw col­our with a tart apple juice nose and mod­er­ate car­bon­a­tion. Served chilled, sweet notes of apple juice come through ahead of lightly bit­ter alco­hol­ic notes devel­op­ing briefly in the body before fin­ish­ing with tarter notes of fresh green apple, like Granny Smiths. Compared to the Somersby Apple Cider, which we still prefer, the apple fla­vour in this one loses the crisp­ness and some of the sweet­ness but takes on a bal­anced bit­ter­ness and acid­ity. This one is a more com­plex cider with a fuller body.

This bottle of Somersby Cloudy Apple Cider con­tained 330 ml. It was pro­duced in Denmark and pur­chased in Sydney, Australia in 2017.
