Thanks for the replies.
Bobthekelpie I love sweet alcoholic drinks (such a lolly water drinker) so I am sure they would slide right down;)

Wild Berry flavour is lush.
And you can never go wrong with Pear.

They're delicious! Especially the strawberry and lime one... yum!

Reading the replies I am sooo tempted to pop down to Dan Murphys to buy a bottle...........might just do that!!

I am not a cider drinker so i am a bit meh about it...
DP however loves them... especially the strawberry and lime...

OK this might be a dumb question, byt here goes. I drink Strongbow is it like that just a lot sweeter??

I love the Mango and raspberry, and good old pear.
But my favourite has to be the winter cider....Apple, cinnamon and Vanilla and best of all it can be drunk hot, sooooo good on a cold night

My thoughts on the flavours:
Pear: Has a milder flavour then some of the others. I am quite a fan
Strawberry and Lime: Very sweet - I personally can't get through a full bottle
Apple and Blackcurrent: Tastes exactly like apple and blackcurrent juice. I like it but don'typically buy it as I prefer others
Winterberry: Is basically a spiced apple flavour to me it tastes like mulled apple juice. I'm a fan but i think it is either a like or don't like type flavour.
Mango and Raspberry: Not as sweet as Strawberry and Lime and I find very tasty. It is my personal favourite
Apple: I haven't actually tried this buy I would expect it is like most apple ciders. I haven't brought this as my theory is if I want an apple cider I will buy a cheaper brand.
Hope that helps.

I tried it for the first time last night. The mango-raspberry one is heaven in a bottle.

I like the pear one, with lots of ice.

I love the Strawberry and Lime, and the Winter cider. Both are lovely and sweet.
Posted 14 November 2012 - 12:24 PM
Strawberry and lime with heaps of ice on a hot day is awesome!

I find rekorderlig waaaay too sweet, I feel like my pancreas is seizing after half a bottle.
The boysencider as mentioned by BTK is a favourite of mine. It's quite tart but has a wonderful aftertaste. James Squire have just released a cider that tastes exactly like cloudy apple juice, but it's a bit hard to find.

Hmmm, interesting to read others opinions. I am not much of alcohol drinker and definitely like sweet over dry. I enjoy a nice sweet cider but I tried one of these a few months ago (can't remember which flavour though) and found it to be so sickly sweet. It was like drinking undiluted cordial with alcohol added!
Posted 14 November 2012 - 12:41 PM
I only discovered the existence of Rekorderlig a few weeks ago. So far I think I have tried every flavour and love them all. Strawberry and Lime would have to be my favourite though.

Funnily enough the junk mail arrived and not in one but THREE catalogues there was this cider on special! I think this was giving me a sign, so of course I went to my local Woolies and bought 3 bottles: Pear, Strawberry and Lime and Wild Berry am looking forward to trying one tonight and then will report back what I think. From the opinions on here of them being very sweet I think I will enjoy them as I like asti champanges and west coast wine coolers and moscato so these sound right up my alley. They didn't have the mango one but will keep en eye out for it if I like them. Thanks again for all the replies!

I know this might not bother some, but I am pretty sure there's no actual fruit in these - I.e. just flavourings and such. To me, it's like wine not made from grapes. A bit unnatural IYKWIM.
I LOVE cider, but I always look for ones made with real fruit.
But I appreciate for most people this wouldn't be a consideration!
Posted 14 November 2012 - 08:41 PM
I don't mind it. I like the mango one and the pear one.
LOL google how Rekorderling is pronounced !
