Day 24 – Tropical
The last day of my Lilley’s Cider advent calendar has revealed a Tropical cider, lightly sparkled and 4%. The picture on the bottle looks like pineapple, pink grapefruit, passion fruit and mango, but the back lists lime instead of passion fruit. There’s quite a bit of sediment, so this one will need a bit of a shake first. If I’m honest, I’m a bit disappointed that it’s another fruit one to finish off this little exploration, but I will go in open minded.
You can definitely taste the pineapple, pink grapefruit and mango, they all come through clearly. I can’t really taste lime, which is a shame, because for me this was way too sweet and some citrus might have helped cut through it a bit. If you like Lilt then I imagine you’d really love this cider.
Too fruity and sweet for my palate – 2/5.
I’m writing this on Christmas eve, but it will go out tomorrow morning like all these advent calendar posts have. I hope you have a great Christmas day, however you’re spending it.
