Review/Tasting Notes: 

“Retains all the clean crisp flavours of the apples, with a lovely balance of sweetness and acidity” 

The aroma and taste of Sxollie’s Cripps Pink is quite delicate. Subtle floral notes are present in a lightly sparkling cider. Once again, this modern cider lacks in depth. Tannins, fruit and acidity are all pretty much absent. This is a sweet floral drink that we don’t rate very highly. 

Verdict: 

A sweet floral drink that serves little purpose as a cider. You would be better off with a decent elderflower cider in our opinion. 

Rating: This is not a particularly good cider (Mainstream Cider) 

Ranking: To be announced (01/07/2021)
