There isn’t much under the nose on this one, a faint hint of orange peel, caramel and rust - and for a ‘Farmhouse’ you’d expect to be picking up more. Tasting this for the first time, I was quite surprised as I expected something that wasn’t so sweet. It has a fairly decent length and fills the palate up with citrus zest, lemons, limes, cherry and blackcurrant. Very refreshing. The cider has a deep bronze colour with light fizz. At 5%ABV it’s light for a ‘farmhouse’ as they’re often higher in alcohol percentage and fuller-bodied. The taste is really pleasant and I’ll certainly have another after this one. You could easily drink this on its own or with a snack such as chilli crisps or nuts. Acidity is low and there’s hardly any tannin so it’s not dry in an way, if anything it’s more medium-sweet than medium. A nice entry from Cornish Orchards. I’ve been hunting this cider down, as I was keen to try it. I’d hoped for a bit more flavour and maybe something that was a bit fuller - but all in all it’s a very pleasant and easily to drink - which is unusual for a ‘farmhouse’ as they can often be so strong that you’d want one and take the enjoyment from there.

Not too bad for a Cornish cider. Drinkable, but rather unexceptional.

Clear amber colour, light carbonation. Rich apple aroma with hint of oak. Sweet apple followed by bitter tannic hit with a oaky undertone.. The carbination keeps it lighter than it would otherwise be. Bought this at the Eden project, in the Mediterranean Biome.

Rich copper colour. Floral aroma, with honeyed undertones. Taste is very mellow and soft. Lacking in complexity, but very drinkable.
