Stassen Over Ice Apple 
Posted: 21 August 2015  Beer Republic 6.0 
Stassen Over Ice Apple from Belgium There's nothing inherently wrong with Stassen Over Ice Apple.  But Belgian made or not, this isn't exceptional cider.  It's not the kind of taste you'd journey 50 km out of your way for if it were only sold along some local country road stall.      
Avg price/liter: USD 7.37   ABV %: 5.4  Type: Cider  Belgium 
       


Former independent-cum-Heineken lapdog Stassen from Belgium comes to the table with its core cider offering, the Over Ice Apple, with 5.4% ABV.             

These Over Ice ciders are supposed to be delicious when served with ice cubes.  That's a difficult trick to pull off if the cider isn't exceptional without ice.     

There's nothing inherently wrong with Stassen Over Ice Apple.  On a hot day, hanging out by by the barn with the chickens and the cows down on the farm, a bottle of these would make anyone smile.  But Belgian made or not, this isn't exceptional cider.  It's not the kind of taste you'd journey 50 km out of your way for if it were only sold along some local country road stall        

If the price were right,  I wouldn't shy away from it at the bar if it were a choice between this, a Strongbow, or a Magners.     

But is that saying a whole lot really?
