California Ace Hard Pumpkin Cider

California Ace Hard Pumpkin Cider

Tonight we are having friends over the house, so no time to write up a review. Luckily, I drank this bad boy the other night so here you go!

I know pumpkin season is officially over, but I recently found Ace’s Hard Pumpkin Cider at Julio’s and I picked up a bottle. It has a nice clear orange color with lots of little bubbles. There is a pleasant pumpkin scent, but it tastes just like a pumpkin scented candle. Also, this cider is too sweet with a strong aftertaste.  I’m sorry, but I’m just not a fan. If you enjoy pumpkin flavor there are better pumpkin ciders out there.

Crispin Georgia

Crispin Georgia

Tonight Josh and I are baking 6 dozen cookies for a holiday cookie swap that we’re going to on Thursday. We like making cookies, but I’m not sure we’ve ever made this many at one time before. Wish us luck! Anyway, here is my review for the cider I drank last night.

I found this limited edition bourbon barrel aged cider at Julio’s, my favorite liquor store. Crispin’s Georgia is cloudy with lots of carbonation. Smells like honey. I taste honey, bourbon, peach. Easy to drink. Very different. I like it a lot. A lot, a lot. Now I’m sad that I’ve missed out on all of their previous barrel aged limited releases L. I’m going to have to stalk Julio’s for Crispin’s next one!
