Our Review of the Cider

Julia's Thoughts and Rating:

Cidergeist Semi Dry is noticeably more carbonated than other ciders that I have tried.  The sip begins with a punch of carbonation, as well as some dryness, but after a couple of seconds, the cider sweetens to a flavor reminiscent of the kind of apple juice that I used to drink out of juice boxes as a kid.  The cider then finishes dry with notes of citrus.  The body of the cider is halfway between light and medium; it is refreshing and relatively easy to drink.  That said, after finishing my glass of Cidergeist, I did not find myself craving more.  It is one of those ciders where after having a glass, I am satisfied but don’t want to keep drinking it.

Ramsay's Thoughts and Rating:

  • Has a smallish but noticeable bite upfront that slowly fades away.

  • More carbonated than other ciders.

  • Would put it toward lower-medium body.

  • Can taste the sweetness throughout the sip, but it has a distinct dryness with a crisp, citrus finish.

  • The dryness has me wanting more with each sip.

  • Despite the dryness, I would likely only have one of them in a sitting at a time due in large part to the flavor profile.

  • Still a refreshing drink nonetheless.
