Perronelle’s Blush by Aspall is an English Cider with blackberry juice and is being evaluated as a cider with other fruit (2015 BJCP Style Guidelines category C2B). For this style, the apple and added fruit should have harmony; neither should dominate the cider.

The cider pours as a reddish amber, clear, with no head. The aroma is prominent but nondescript berry with bright apple beneath the berry. The flavor is moderately of berries with lighter bittersweet apple. A touch of carbonation, a light tartness, and a slight, pleasant astringency balance the light sweetness from the fruits. This cider finishes with a crisp, clean finish with a light lingering tartness balanced by semi-sweet berry. Complex, flavorful and refreshing. The only regret is that the blackberry character was a generic berry flavor.
