After sampling the Perry Polosuchý and the Original Polosuchý, both from the Czech cider maker Redbrook I’m giving their Red Fruit a try. Red fruit is a mix of fermented apple juice and red fruit juice. Company: Redbrook Cider
Place of Origin: Dřínov, Central Bohemian Region, Czech Republic
Ingredients: fermented apple juice and red fruit juice
Sweetness as per label: semi-dry
Package type: 330ml amber glass bottle with crown cap
Recommended type of glass: white wine glass or chalice glass
Appearance: pours a deep ruby red with a violet hue and a quickly dissipating foam. Medium artificial carbonation. Body is low to medium.
Aroma/Nose: smells fruity and slightly acidic of blackcurrant, chokeberry and blackcurrant juice.
Taste: it starts only slightly sweet with a low to medium acidity. Blackcurrant, chokeberry, light to medium astringent taste on the mid-palate. It finishes dry with a nice lingering acidity and a flavour of red fruits.
Overall: briefly, Redbrook’s Red Fruit tastes like a blackcurrant juice mixed with some chokeberry juice. Interestingly, it’s extremely drinkable. A really delicious and good tasting red fruit juice. Actually, I would have bought it again if it was available as a regular juice as it’s not so sweet as usually juices are. But it’s hard to consider this creation a cider or wine. Sorry, guys. 3/6
Price: Red Fruit Polosuchý was a sample provided by Redbrook Cider.
