Brew Review: Loon Juice
When summer hits, I find my tastes gravitating towards sweeter offerings like cider, wine and margaritas. I’m also partial to anything brewed here in the great state of Minnesota, so I couldn’t pass up when I saw this bottle on the shelves.
I mean, for one, it’s called Loon Juice! A clever name is sometimes half the battle when it comes to getting people’s attention and this logo jumped off the shelf at me. Whoever designed this did a great job. Very eye catching.
Loon Juice is put out by Four Daughters Vineyard & Winery in Spring Valley, MN. I grabbed the solo bottle, but from what I saw on their Facebook page, it should be available at some retailers in cans. Perfect for the lakes.
Comparing this to Angry Orchard (a cider I find most people have tried), Loon Juice is not as sweet, which is a plus for me. Some ciders are too sweet for my taste. I found Loon Juice to be crisp and a little dry. So if you find some of the other ciders on the market are just too sweet for you, give this Minnesota cider a try!
