Hello again all. Remember me? Oh go on, you must do surely? I know, I know, it’s been too long since the last review and I did promise to be a bit more regular with them previously. Unfortunately work and a social life has got in the way keeping this blog up to date, but I’m back again now. Up today is something I never expected to be saying on the blog and that is I have a cider or 3 to try from a small producer in Luxembourg.

Good evening all and welcome back to my cider reviews. Remember me? I know, I know, it’s been over 6 months since my last review, but it’s good to be back.

Up first tonight is a new kid on the block in the cider world in the form of a Bubbly Shipment from Beard & Sabre.

The last instalment of my French cidre reviews this week is what looks the most promising and exciting cidre on paper. It’s cloudy, unfiltered and possibly maybe similar to our scrumpy? Well, we shall see if it is later on. Up next is the Traditionnel cidre from Loic Raison.

It’s Thursday, it’s that evening where we have a drink in the name of Ciderbods and of course it’s something new for me to try. I rarely have a review nowadays where I have forgot to review it first time round. What’s on the menu you’re probably wondering by this point? Well, it’s an interesting 3 apple blend cider from Ross-On-Wye. They have conjured up an Dabinett, Bramley & Sweet Coppin cider and by golly I can’t wait to get my mitts on it.

Time has really flown by since my last review (nearly 2 months ago!) and life has just got in the way of a good cider blogging time! Thankfully I’ve now got cider completely back on the agenda (including a trip to Asturias later this week!) and it’s time to kick start those cider reviews. Up first is one of a few cider related birthday gifts I got, which is a bottle of Worcestershire Wobblejuice (Dry) Cider from Clive’s Fruit Farm.
