It’s ok. Not sure the blends quite right, strawberry tastes quite artificial. 1st batch bottle 1027 bottle of 3998. 4%, it’s ok.

Hands down the best fruited cider I have had so far. Again, a limited edition from Colcombe House; this time my bottle was no.178 of 2700. Despite the name, this is a light golden cider, without a trace of red, or even pink. The initial taste is subtle, but all about the sweet strawberry, and then the dryness of the rhubarb creeps into the aftertaste, and the rhubarb flavour cuts through, whilst the apple cider underlies it all, giving it balance and depth. A really good dessert cider! Definitely drink again, if available.
