This is our bottled cider which is medium and slightly sparkling. It’s made with a blend of vintage cider and new juice which produces an intense flavour.
Hallets Real Cider is produced by hand at Blaengawney Farm using a blend of Welsh cider apples.
It is made using both the traditional fermentation method, with the addition of juice which is fermented using a rarely applied method called Keeving. The result produces a sweet, rich juice and unique Welsh cider which has its own subtle texture and unique taste.
Once blended, it is matured, bottled and stored for a minimum of 3 months, allowing a natural conditioning to occur.

In short: tart finishing cider.
Pours quite clear golden-hay, with little white head. Apple nose, starts fruity , apples, some sweet, and then turns bitter, quite dry finish. Enjoyable.

MichaelAwesome (6146) - Wanne-Eickel, North Rhine-Westphalia, GERMANY - JUL 3, 2014
Classy and superb Cider with some apple and apple juice in the back, Starting off easy with less sweet background as expected and then hitting you with that forgotten sweetness you have missed. Good one with a bit of pineapples as an extra.

McTapps (6194) - Ruhrcity, GERMANY - JUL 3, 2014
Bottle from my Summer Santa - many thanks! The cider pours out in a beautiful deep yellow-golden colour with smooth body. Nice aroma of mild ripe apples and light sugar. Taste of red rippe apples, some unripe greens, leaves and flowers. Mild, medium-sweet finish. Very refreshing and quaffable with being complex and gentle in taste. Great cider.

caesar (6129) - Bunnik/Utrecht, NETHERLANDS - APR 26, 2014
Bottled @ café derat, large sample. Clear yellow color, tiny bubbles, leaves teardrops along the glass like dessert wine. Aroma of dry apple, slight hint of wood, dust, cellar. Bit dry in taste, bit sweet. Quite clean. Very decent cider, could use a bit more complexity, but nicely balanced.

Poured luminous orange with no head. Aroma of woody apple. Medium body, average carbonation, flavour as the aroma. Quite refreshingly astringent.
