Looks like I'm about to review some kind of soda pop or kid's drink, judging by the pic, doesn't it dear reader?

Well, unlike those folks recently in the news who let their little child smoke packs of ciggies, don't be giving Junior this one cause it packs a mighty wallop at 7% alcohol!

This is the first in a series of more Summery type libations to celebrate the turn of warmer season (unless you live in the Southern Hemisphere; if this is the case, then...oops?) here on Matt's Beer We Go!, and this berrylicious cider is perfect for bbq's, patio parties, or whatever the hell you're looking to do whilst swatting flies the size of small birds or sizzling under deadly UV rays.*

*DISCLAIMER: I do not recommend tanning of any kind nor do I want you to be bitten by bugs the size of small birds.

To the cider!

Made from some delightful combination of apple and pear wines (*snicker* there appears to be no berries whatsoever in this, despite the rasp, blue, and straw varieties on the front of the can! CAVEAT EMPTOR!), this cider pours a very light and "AHH" pink hue (at least it looks like a berry colour).

Nice and carbonated as well (i.e. fresh and fizzy), it has a sweet nose of berries, bordering on berry candies or even cream soda.

In the glorious realm of taste, this one is a little tart (not unlike a Tiger Wood's mistress), dryish, and once more, keeping with the berry theme, does indeed resemble a taste in this regard. The aftertaste does trend on the sweet side.

Despite no berry it seems having come within a hundred miles of this Swedish delight, it is indeed, a delight! Easy to drink, fresh and tasty, it is indeed perfect for the warmer climes - whatever hemisphere you reside in!
