Hard Cider?

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.

The Pommies Cider Verdict

Yumm factor: Cider: 5/5    Farmhouse 3/5

Buy Again: Yes
