Zeffer Hopped up Pippin
5.8%ABV. Cider. Tapped out an effervescent pale gold. 2ºSRM. Nose is sour, cidery and dry. There is perfume-like baby powder dimension to the nose. Raw fruit either pear or Apple is also in the nose and gives you the impression of a small crate of unwashed fresh-picked fruit. Mouthfeel is juice and carbonated. Sweet with the flavor of apples. Sour comes in at the end of the palate and brief and barely tart. Medium dry finish with a faint tanin-like stickiness on the palate.

Zeffer Zesty Citrus Infused Cider
500 ml bottle from Old Town; split three ways. Aroma: Bittersweet apple juice nearly balanced by orange juice notes; light grass/hay notes otherwise. Very pale; filtered yellow body with a stream of bubbly carbonation holding up a scant white ring of head. Flavor: Orange notes predominantly up front with more bittersweet apple thereafter; the finish is dry and has maybe a little hay. Palate: Light body, slick texture, lively carbonation, abrupt finish. Overall: An interesting mix of orange and apple impressions; not surprisingly, this rather grew on me as it warmed. A really nice blending.

12 oz. draft at Gralehaus. Aroma: Lighter bittersweet juice with bright tropical fruit hop character; India Pale Cider, anyone? Appearance: Pale gold colour with softer carbonation holding up a patchy white head. Flavour: Subdued bittersweet juice up front, followed by a crescendo of tropical fruit hops and lesser bittersweet juice; the finish is dry, abrupt and barely bitter. Palate: Light body, sticky texture, soft carbonation, abrupt finish. Overall: My second hopped cider, and an eye opener with regards to the possibilities here. A real treat!

i love cider but not hopped ciders, the bitterness is always out of place, and this follows that .. . gold, light .. . low foam .. . sweet apple, skin, bold bitters in the back .. pretty crushable but just a bit too bitter .. . . No, it’s not that, I just don’t like this frog. I’m giving him a squeeze

Zeffer Hopped up Pippin
Bottle from World Beer Market. Zeffer Hopped up Pippin Cider 5.8% I’ve been looking to try a cider that has been dry hopped. It pours a deep clear shining gold. The aroma is a herbal, spicy almost sweet tart like hippy aroma that pretty much overpowers the apple. Very seltzer like carbonation on a light body. The taste is tart, sweet, a bit candyish with a mild fruity hop bite. It’s interesting and quite good but I feel this particular blend of hops & cider clash more than complement each other. Alright.

interesting cider. the addition of new zealand/australian hops brings a nice fruitiness. just a nice extra layer of flavor to an otherwise solid cider.

This is a real looker.(OMGIsocan’tbelieveyoujudgethingsbytheirappearancethat’ssexistandshallowandyou’resuchabastard) It really is a pretty blush of pink with crisp apple skin aromas. The flavour is bright and fresh with good attenuation. A new favourite for Mrs Jimthechap.

(draft @ Avenue Pub - New Orleans, LA) Hazy gold with a fizzy white head. Fresh apples and a nice flowery hop balance in the aroma. Flavor starts off with a smooth and sweet apple flavor with a very floral and fresh hop backbone. Finishes with a nice blend of the two. Not overpowering either way. Quite nice.

Zeffer Apple Cider


330 ml bottle as "Zeffer Crisp Apple Cider" bought at foodGARDEN in D2 Place, Lai Chi Kok.

Clear very pale golden yellow colour; Razor thin head and residual soapy white foam which fades in 5 seconds; Very small lacing with active, very small carbonation; Aroma of apple wine, with apple peels, strong yoghurt tartness, light wood and strong tannic; Very light sweet taste of apple wine, with very strong yoghurt tartness, moderate carbo, light earth, light wood, light alcohol and fairly light tannic; Light body. Thin and fairly dry palate; Mouth feel is close to a dry cider but not quite - almost devoid of sweetness and strong tart impression, yet it still have some wetness and not at all boozy. Light touch of earth and barrel, but tannin isn’t strong at all. Okay… Fairly dry after taste. Tart and easy to mouth.

Comments: Not as exciting as the fresh-tasting Red Apple Cider, this one’s forte is tartness, near-zero sweetness and fair dryness. East to go down with fair amount of feel good factor here. Fair enough.

Zeffer Red Apple


330 ml bottle bought at foodGARDEN in D2 Place, Lai Chi Kok.

Clear, very pale rose red colour; Very thin head and residual soapy white foam which fades in 10 seconds; Moderate lacing with active small carbonation; Aroma of apple wine, with red apple peels and flesh, yoghurt, light alcohol and light tannic; Close to light sweet taste of apple wine, with strong yoghurt tartness, strong carbo, light wood, very light alcohol and moderate tannic; Light body. Thin palate; Mouth feel is mid-to-low sweet cider with pretty flashy red apple characters, peels and fresh wise. Pretty strong tartness as in Hop up Peppin, good carbo and light barrel taste to boot. Quite exciting to drink. Nice!... Slightly dry after taste. Tart and refreshing to mouth.

Comments: The Hop up Pippin suggested a good base for Zeffer’s ciders, and this one does not disappoint: light but nice fruity and tart red apple aroma and taste, light and neat sweetness, carbo, booze and tannic to enjoy a nice lazy Sunday afternoon. An easygoing keeper!

Cider with a bit more depth in flavour is a great idea. This is light in carbonation (how we like cider) apple wine, pineapple and grass. Loved it.

AR: Beautifully floral apples that remind me of a good sour, which might be a bit from the hops. AP: Lightest white wine color with no lacing or collar. Not a big head at all. T: I actually get no real hop flavor in here, just a pretty damn good cider. P: Nice soft level of carbonation. O: Delicious stuff but no real hop flavor to speak of.
