An Apple a Day Keeps the Doctor Away

Stella Cidre

 

 

An apple a day keeps the doctor away.

 

It’s usually implied that this saying refers to eating an apple but I like to think that a glass of hard apple cider is relatively similar. With cider growing drastically in popularity and more styles available it isn’t hard to have an apple a day in fermented liquid form.

 

For a change from the sweeter, American-style hard ciders there is Stella Cidre. Stella Cidre is an award-winning European-style cider that I like to consider the younger, half-sister of Stella Artois. Just as committed to good taste and refreshment, this cider is a crisp offering with a dry finish.

 

An effervescent body lends a champagne-like quality to this cider that is full of red apple flavor, accented by hints of peach, apricot and orange. The finish is smooth and dry, with a warming wood finish. The delicious, light sweetness of ciders is found in Stella Cidre but the focus in more on the crisp apple flavor rather than any residual sweetness. Stella Cidre is 4.5% ABV and naturally gluten free.

 

This refreshing change from the norm is much appreciated, as is shown by the accolades already showered on Stella Cidre in the past year or so. Named the 2012 Alcoholic Brand of the Year by Grocer Magazine this cider came home with gold at the 2013 North American Beer Awards. In fact, Bon Appetit Magazine called Stella Cidre “a ringing endorsement for the future of cider-making in the States.”
