Shacksbury Classic Cider

Shacksbury Classic Cider

Hello LIBA readers! It’s been a long time since I wrote a cider review. Actually, I take that back. It has been a long time since I published a cider review. I have tried a whole lot different cider, and even took some notes here and there.

Josh and I are currently looking for a new home. This afternoon we visited a gorgeous converted church building. There are lots of pros, but also some downsides to the unit. We’re considering placing an offer. As we think it over, we are very excited and very nervous.

While we think about it, I’m trying this Shacksbury Classic Cider. I just picked up 3-4 different bottles of this brand. The cidery is located in Shoreham, Vermont. This Classic Cider smells farmy, but tastes far less so. Josh tried it and thought it tasted very farmy, so maybe my tastes are changing. I like this cider a lot.

DeMunck’s Belgian Style Hard Cider

DeMunck's Belgian Style Hard Cider

Who’s already sick of winter? I am I am! I’m freezing my fingers off just typing this. Since Josh won’t take me away to the Caribbean I’m stuck at home drinking a cider and dreaming of a warm beach. My daydream is accompanied by DeMunck’s Belgian Style Hard Cider.

This cider is made by Southern Tier brewing company. It is 5% alcohol by volume. I found it to be clean and crisp with a mild flavor, making it great to go with a meal. I would definitely have it again.
