Ardiel Cider House Dry Cider

Overall 7/10 I may be biased because this is definitely on the dry side and I’m a fan of dry cider.  Go figure I hate dry white wine cause the parallel is there.  Oh and fuck grapefruit with it’s puckery-ass fucked-up-ness.  Who the fuck drinks grapefruit to quench their thirst?  No one that’s fucking who.  […]

Reinhart’s Red Apple Cider

Overall 7/10 It’s Christmas in a goddamn can!  “Take a drink from Santa’s dick!” or what I used to call summers with uncle Dale before he went to jail.  I think this is the first light cider I’ve reviewed and it doesn’t disappoint.  Yes I know purists will tell you a cider traditionally had a […]

Shiny Apple Cider

Overall 7/10 I’m trying to decide if this is a case of you can judge a book by it’s cover or you can’t judge a book by it’s cover.  The can is all flash which would entertain the idea that the cider would be just that.  All flash and a let down.  It isn’t.  Or […]

Thornbury Village

Overall 9/10 I’m really on the fence as to if this is an 8 or a 9 so I’m listing it as an 9 for now.  I will intend, after drinking enough cider, to do a champions circle and revisit the best ciders I’ve drank to rank those accordingly.  I am NOT doing that with […]

Duxbury Cider Co. Heritage 1650

Overall 6/10 This is some half decent shit I can dig it. I’m not gonna drink a lot of it on account of the flavour being too sweet for my personal preference but I really like the apple taste. What I’m not liking is the weird flatness which is tied to the fucked up nonsense […]

Apple & Cherry Cider

Overall 7/10* This is a good cider.  I’m gonna be contradictory here because this statement is true but so is the reverse.  Nothing says a good cider like one that you can sit and drink and savour and then walk away.  A good “one and done” cider.  This is a “summer Sunday afternoon working on […]

Ironwood Hard Cider

Overall 3/10 Is this even supposed to taste like something? Why is there so much goddamn disappointing cider? Shit is cider flavoured water. I keep revisiting my ratings because fuck me if I keep disappointing myself with this journey. At this point I think I’m in the search for bad cider not good cider. Hey, […]

Ernest Cider

Overall 7/10 I’m going to be biased because this cider is crafted about 15 minutes north of me in Newmarket, Ontario and I already have a history with it having drunk it many times to excess.  This cider is good and deadly and is very “buyer beware” when you start drinking them.  If you’re me, […]

Spirit Tree Draught Cider

Overall 4/10 A good cider should not come from apple juice. I mean you do press apples to make cider but that doesnt entail you jump right to apple juice. I feel like I’m going to be hammered with volumes of middling ciders. The next one made with apple juice im drinking out of a […]

Forbidden Dry Cider

Overall 5/10 It’s not that I’ve had worse cider. It’s that I’ve had better. Like when a child does some stupid shit I find myself looking at the can and thinking to myself “You could have done better”. Hell I’m gonna be brutally honest I’ve never made cider in my life. It’s possible I could […]
