Opinion: If you like pineapple, this cider is for you! Its the only pineapple cider I’ve seen. It is quite sweet though, and tastes obviously back sweetened (juice added after fermentation). It tastes a bit too much like juice to me, although many folks may like that. I’m surprised how low calorie it is for how sweet it is (175, where most sweet ciders top 200). Refreshing and simple. I do love pineapple though. Ace offers a number of other ciders, from their dry Joker to a similar cider to the Pineapple one, except Berry, to their 21st anniversary Chardonnay barrel aged Blackjack 21 cider, and even a Pumpkin variety. Overall I don’t find their ciders too impressive though (this is my favorite by far). If you like sweet ciders and pineapple, you may like this cider.
