Carlsberg Group - Somersby and 1664 Blanc!

Somersby Pear Cider, 4.5% vol. ($16.50 for 4s, 330ml)
Kronenbourg 1664, 5% vol. ($24.90 for 6s, 330ml)

We didn't know both of these popular brands are from the Carlsberg Group. This is such great success. Between the 2 however, we prefer the wheat beer to sweet cider.

The UK Cider promotes healthiness with composition of mainly pear juice, with no artificial flavors or sweeteners. A pretty drink like sparkling champagne with sweetness, bubbles and fruitiness. Fairy tales too.

But for seasoned ladies drinkers, we like the 1664 French wheat beer. Less of sweet fantasy, more on soothe bitterness with sensible aromas of citrus, lemon and coriander spices.

This will be my favorite beer for celebratory occasion, like today.
