We answer your questions about the “bRosé”

If you’re a lover of local ciders, you may have run into the bRosé at your local wine and liquor shop. A member of the cider selections by Citizen Cider – a New England-based cider company – the bottle is named after wine, looks like wine, but is found in the cider section. We’re sure you have plenty of questions before buying the bottle and giving it a go, so we’ve given the bRosé a test run and have the answers you need!

Is it wine or cider? Or some combination of both?

Despite it’s pink hue and its wine-y name, the bRosé is distinctly a cider. But even beyond its color, the cider does share unique characteristics of the wine, such as subtle fruit undertones and a smooth, somewhat bubbly texture on the palate. It’s a perfect drink for those chilly months leading up to summer, when you’re not ready to pop open your favorite bottle of pink wine but still want something light and gently sweet to drink.

Is the drink just for ‘bros’?

We can’t say for sure what the intention was behind the name – but according to Citizen Cider’s website, the pink cider was named for the three “bros” who teamed up to create it. That said, perhaps they used the name to attract drinkers who may not traditionally see themselves as rosé lovers – the cidery reminds drinkers that “dudes can drink pink” too!

Should I drink it when I’m craving cider or rosé?

The tasting experience is different for everyone, but we’d say the beverage leans toward its natural origin: apples and blueberries. It’s definitely a lighter, fruitier taste than some ciders, but if you’re specifically craving wine, you’re better off keeping it simple.

That said, now is the perfect time to give the drink a go – it’s perfect in the fall or spring, as the seasons start to change!
