Review: Original Dry by Bad Seed

Sweetness: Dry

ABV: 6.90%

Cider Maker’s Description

Our flagship Dry Hard Cider is extremely dry and incredibly strong. Fermented with a sauvignon blanc yeast and then conditioned in this very can, we've crafted a dry cider that is similar to an apple champagne. We don't add any back-sweetener or extra sugar. All that's in this can is a full pound of pressed apples. Nothing else. We hope you enjoy drinking it as much as we enjoyed making it.


  • crystal clear, bright, light yellow


  • light to moderate carbonation


  • musty, yeasty, Sauvignon Blanc


  • table apples, Sauvignon Blanc, melon and citrus similar to a Pinot Grigio


  • light acidity, light body


  • quick and clean

Tasting Notes / General Impression

sort of nondescript, maybe a good cooking cider, it's a good cider - just not amazing in my opinion

Though he prefers sweets in solid forms, he does enjoy semi-sweet to sweet ciders responsibly when the mood strikes. Learn more about our Chief Cider Curator here.
