The modern Hillbilly is a true bohemian, not restricted by the mainstream and living by the rules of the land. Our hillbillification began when we moved to Bilpin in the Blue Mountains. A simpler life called for a simpler drink: 100% whole crushed mountain apples. No added sugar or concentrates, just crisp and refreshing. The natural bohemian cider.

330ml bottle from Leura Cellars. Very pale yellow colour, white foam head that quickly dissipates away and aroma of juicy apple. Taste is apple, fruity, slightly woody, bittersweet with light tannins. Spritzy mouthfeel, light bodied, high carbonation, dry tannic finish. Quite drinkable.

330ml bottle. A clear, effervescent, pale lemon yellow with no head. Aromas of red and green apples with a delicate sweetness. Light-bodied and fresh with good balance between the crunchy acidity and sweeter edges. Medium to full carbonation and a short length of apple juice and pith. Refreshing, easy-going and crisp.

Tap @ the apple bar. Clear, pale straw. Simple, crisp, refreshing apple flavours. Not too sweet.

Draught. Pours a clear straw yellow. The aroma is straightforward sweet apple, with a touch of lemon and a little tartness. Mild apple skin tartness leads into a mild lemon flavour. Medium dry apple in the mid-palate gives way to a fruity finish. Itís a commercial cider, but not a bad one.

The Bilpin apple orchard region of the Blue Mountains is suddenly home to two ciderys. Hillbilly came second and to my mind is the lesser of the two producers based on their first efforts, but not by much. Itís interesting just how similar the two ciders are when the apples are sourced from the same terroir. This is an honest, clean sparkling cider with no additives. Itís probably the palest Iíve come across - almost watery in appearance but is that necessarily a flaw? Busy champagne-like body. Ultra-clean aroma, by no means sweet. Soft apple acids and some creamy notes. Fizzy palate. Very simple and clean with no obvious flaws but not offering much excitement, either. (330ml bottle from Carrington Cellars.)
