So this is going to be my first cider review and the plan is to do them every now and than, but not to the same extent as what I do for my beer reviews (but where will I put my ramblings now?). So I’m starting with the the Hillbilly Apple cider made in Bilpin NSW in the heart of the Blue Mountains.
So the cider itself pours a very pale, lighter than champagne almost no colour at all, not necessarily a flaw. Not much head, but has a nice aroma (I don’t really want too obvious as to what) with a delicate off sweetness but extremely clean.
The body is soft, light and refreshing and has a great balance in flavours and creamy notes. Medium body carbonation, but has a nice dry finish with a medium length.
I really enjoyed this cider, it’s clean, crisp and well balanced and well worth trying. I would highly recommend Hillbilly cider for a lazy warm afternoon or just a pleasurable alternative.
