Blood Orange Tangerine by Common Cider Company is a 6.5% ABV Hard Cider made with Blood Oranges and Tangerines.
Obtained this one from the local Bevmo shop but also saw this one at Total Wine. Trying things that are not beer sometimes can be pretty damn amazing. Craft ciders are really stepping their game up and going into the craft beer realm with different ingredients and flavors. So When I saw this cider made with Blood Orange and Tangerine, I really couldn’t help but be really tempted to try it. So here is my review for the first Cider I try from Common Cider Company. Cheers!

A very good cider that really focuses more on the citrus side of things. It works really well with the whole aspect of being a cider. Meaning, even though this is an apple cider, the Orange and Tangerine goodness take over to showcase their flavors as being more a cider made with the oranges and tangerines more than they are of the apples. Very good cider and I would recommend it to those that love ciders.
This original character was used to complement the color of oranges, tangerines and blood oranges. Blood oranges in the sense that when I think of blood I think of evil or devious. So it works with the character looking like a little devil but the cuteness is the sweetness. The strength in the sword represents the bolder citrus flavor that really carries this cider through and through.
