The name ‘Adam & Eva Cider’ might imply that the brand is owned by a guy named Adam and a lady named Eva, but it’s not the case here. Two school friends Andreas and Jürgen, who grew up on the German side of Lake Constance (Bodensee in German) were wondering what to do with all these apples growing in this heavenly area. An apple jam? An apple pie? Cider, of course! Already in 2015 the first batch of Adam & Eva was bottled and hit the shelves a bit later. Today Adam & Eva Cider has a line up of two ciders, Adam and Eva. Let’s start with the Adam first. Company: Adam & Eva GbR
Place of Origin: Munich, Bavaria, German
Apples: apples from gardens around Lake Constance
Package type: 330ml clear bottle with crown cork
Recommended type of glass: wine glass or chalice glass
Appearance: pours a clear pale golden with a white fizz that slowly dissipates. Low to medium carbonation. Body is medium.
Aroma/Nose: it smells lightly sweet of pears, red and yellow apples with a woody touch of stems.
Taste: it begins moderately sweet with very low acidity of lemon. A taste of pear, light astringent taste with vanilla, yellow and green apples with a fresh apple juice note on the mid-palate. Very short taste leaving a light buttery aftertaste.
Overall: the Adam is just a very average offering made from eaters and cookers. It tastes clear of eating apples and its taste disappears very fast, doesn’t linger on. Also, a tiny bit higher acidity would round up the taste. I couldn’t detect any off-notes (apart from the buttery flavour in the aftertaste) or anything that I could call much disturbing but the Adam simply doesn’t stand out from the crowd in any way. I’m sorry to say that I didn’t enjoy having Adam and therefore I wouldn’t buy it again. 2.5/6
Price: Adam from Adam & Eva was a sample provided by Ciderei.
