Rekorderlig Elderflower Cider Review
I have another cider for today and this one is new from Rekorderlig.
Since this is a pear based cider with elderflower, it has a champagne, very pale yellow color and pours with a medium, very bubbly head, which takes a few seconds to go down. Its aroma is sweet and heavy on the elderflower with a distant, slightly sour pear note. Much like its Wildberry cousin, it has a very sweet taste with most of the flavour coming in at the start. Along with the sweet flavour comes the strong, 7% ABV taste, which disappears rather quickly once the less sweet and slightly sour pear flavour comes in midway. The finish is sweet and a touch sour. Overall this is a great new cider, but on the downside, it is still very sweet.
Cost - $2.85 CAD for a 500 mL can
Taste - 7.9/10
Overall - 7.9/10...sweet, but a solid cider
