  1. Patty

    Wasn’t sure what to expect, but this was amazing! I will definitely buy this again.

  2. Coquine

    Light apple flavor, dry to perfection, sparkling like champagne but lighter in alcohol. Wonderful with savory crepes and dessert or by itself. I loved it. Please, Trader Joe’s, bring it back soon!!

  3. John DeModena

    Wow, i picked up a couple of these on the recommendation of a staff member, and when i saw it was from Brittany, i had excited hopes. i was not disappointed…it was like the cidre we used to drink in Brittany. it is the real deal, the best cider i have had here. not too sweet and flavorful.

    unfortunately, i have not seen it since. if it comes back, i’m buying a case!

    This was the best cider I have ever tasted and I’ve tried many. They were always too sweet, too much apple flavor, too much of an alcohol flavor, and cloying. This cider had none of those issues, plus it was light, refreshing, and so enjoyable to drink. Trader Joe’s, please bring this brand back, maybe year round instead of just during the holidays.

    Excellent clean, dry cider with no fake sweetness like the mass produced US ciders and less expensive than comparable craft ciders. Could also serve as a nice mixer for Mimosas in place of sparkling wine.

    I was raised on Normandy cider, which has been hard to find in these parts until recently. This is the real deal, wonderfully dry yet tasty and refreshing, with a glorious gold color. Hopefully American cider producers will learn a trick or two from the masters of France. Bought 6 bottles, but will return for more ASAP.

    I tried this when TJ first stated carrying it and rejected it outright. I actually poured the bottle down the drain. Maybe a year later I read a review on Reddit that I thought was utter nonsense, but upon later reflection I decided to try it again. All I can figure is I must have gotten a bad bottle on that first try, something that is certainly possible with a cider of this type. This is actually a very good example of a French cider. You may be surprised or even put off by the sulphur notes in it’s aroma, but try to put that aside and delve into the actual flavors. Very subtle and light and entirely delicious. The more of it I drink, the more I like it. It is without a doubt the least expensive French Cider you are ever going to find on this side of the pond so put down that Angry Orchard and that Woodchuck and learn how cider is supposed to taste. Yum.

    Seems to be a seasonal product, i buy several when i find this. Wonderful light apple flavor and effervescent without too much carbonation. Significantly better than any american hard ciders and a touch more sweet than the spanish cidras. Excellent and highly recommended!

  9. Bruce

    We’ve really enjoyed this in the past but our last two two bottles were badly oxidized and undrinkable.

  10. Lolo

    Excellent. The only cider in all the shops I go to that tastes like really cider and not like sweet apple juice. Please keep it on the shelves!!

    11/12/2020 – I was JUST TOLD the TJs has DISCONTINUED this product!!!!! This is the only CIder (Cidre) product I have found in the US that comes close to what my Uncle makes on his farm in NORMANDY! PLEASE RETHINK THIS DISCONTINUATION!!!! Come on! Not even for the HOLIDAYS???

  12. Will Smidt

    ARE YOU KIDDING ME??? DISCONTINUED????
    Incredibly good product.
    I think Bruce mishandled his storage to get oxidation…since it was discontinued in April 2020 according to my local TJs. Can not be stored in sun or heat. Just like wine.
    Who is in charge of this DEPT. that made such a bone-headed decision???
    Someone should be fired!

  13. Gail

    Ecellent. Please, bring it back to Trader Joes.

    Please bring Dan armor pear cider back. I love this product.

    Everytime I find something I like, Trader Joe’s discontinues it. With the loss of this awesome pear cider I no longer have any reason to shop here anymore.

  23. Nick

    Coming from Brittany, it is an amazing cider (the apple one, less of a fan of the pear cider) and for an absolutely unbeatable price in the US. But my TJ’s (Larchmont, NY) is continually out of stock which is the frustrating part…
