The Friday Review with Natural Jenn
Pommies Hard Cider
Admittedly I don’t like beer or malted drinks, even the smell turns my stomach. When presented with the challenge of taste testing a couple hard ciders I was quite reluctant.
Pommies is a family run, small crafted cider company. Made from 100% Ontario apples right here in Ontario! No traveling time for these ingredients. What’s great, and the reason I agreed to sample, is that they are gluten free and non-GMO! I can never, ever resist gluten free. The more I can enjoy while out the better! Now I have to say; I did enjoy it. This was perfect timing for the holidays, a light crisp drink that’s not too sweet, that can travel with us to holiday gatherings.
Pros and Cons
I was pleasantly surprised by the light crisp flavors. We sampled the Farmhouse and the Cider; which made me wonder if the packaging was strategic?
The farmhouse was the first to be popped open, a beautiful apple-y aroma greeted the nose and the first sip was quite pleasant. A bit on the strong side for myself; though if offered I would not refuse. Adam quite liked this one.
The cider was definitely my pick. Very light, with a pleasant, fresh apple after taste. In the past coolers have been my go to as a safe alternative to beer but to be honest they are TOO sweet; so I am happy to have a cooler alternative.
