Rekorderlig copy - tastes exactly the same! Strawberry and Lime - £1.49 @ Aldi

Not really cheap but cheaper than the equivalent from the big 4 and pubs.

Eminently quaffable in the sun - LOL

For those who would prefer their weak booze to actually taste nice and pay for it. Instead of the 40p a can Carling, Fosters, Carlseberg brigade.

Which tastes like a used jock strap....

So I have tasted!

I prefer something that tastes nice and not like a used boys teenager's jock strap.

I guess that's where we differ?

internet hero alert.

thanks for the post will check it out !

ha ha, love your reference of choice.

Not really partial to used Jockstraps but do like my cider and will be sure to pick some up next time i'm in Aldi.

Great share!

Been drinking these for a while now. Like the ginger & lemon. Unfortunately no Aldi in NI so will have to still pay £5 for 3 (Winemark). Heat for price.

That sounds nice. Didn't see in my local but will keep an eye out.

The Strawberry Lime just tastes like the Rekorderlig to me but Mrs says more "limey".

and carpet burn ... lol

if you can find it - try the passionfruit one.... lubbely jubbely

mixed berry ones nice too :-)

Thanks for the heads up.I quite enjoy Rekorderlig.

How do they get away with calling this stuff cider?!?!?

Cider is made from apples. Perry is made from pears.

This stuff is alcopops ....

Cheap price though. Not my cup of fruit based alcoholic drink, but heat nonetheless.

I made my own ‘fruit based alcoholic drink’ before Christmas (still have some left). Apple, mango and passionfruit (tasted like A&M J20), some tender care and attention, quite a bit of wastage (due to the amount of fruit sediment extracted), 5 to 6% ish, 80p a pint (after wastage). Very quaffable also

On the subject of Rekorderlig, I bought some Winter apple and Vanilla in B&M today - 99p a bottle, needless to say I cleared the shelf but left the orange and ginger one

I wonder the same thing.

Not sure how you get cider from strawberrys and lime.

as you say cider is from apples, perry is from pears, anything else is from chemicals

may taste nice tho

I'm no expert, but I'm pretty sure strawberries and limes are things called fruit

The strawberry and lime rekorderlig/kopparberg is just so sickeningly sweet (and I have a sweet tooth!)... Pear one isnt too bad

And almost any alcoholic (and non-alcoholic) drink is cheaper in shops than the pubs! The cheaper than 'big 4' comment is fair enough though

Agreed, the passion fruit Rekorderlig is my favourite cider! Love it.

They (Alska) market it, and others, as a 'fruit cider' seen here, sounds a fair definition to me, especially when there is a low percentage of ciders which meet the Campaign for Real Ales' definition of a cider - at least 90% fresh apple juice with no added flavourings or colourings.



Edited by: "andynicol" 8th May 2014

Is this alska Swedish stuff too?

Voted HOT - I like strawberry and lime cider, and I'm a CAMRA member :-)

But nearest Aldi to Putney is 5 1/2 miles away :-(

HEAT ADDED because you can't find anything similar for cheaper, but the whole 'cider' market is awful stuff.
They're basically alcopops, but fruit-juice 'based' instead of vodka based for which a higher duty is charged. Barely any apple juice in them really, hence CAMRA's 'strict' definitions as opposed to HMRC:

At least 35 per cent apple or pear juice must be included in any mixture … At least 35 per cent apple or pear juice must be included in any mixture from which fermentation takes place.


from the legal definition of cider here.

Obviously this definition seems slightly unfair as this can be concentrate (and always is for most ciders), but bear in mind your artificial, sweetened, totally fake Crabbie's ginger 'beer', Jeremiah Weed and all that crap is also technically a cider for Her Majesty's purposes because it's charged at a much lower duty. WKD and the like have fallen out of favour due to higher duty on vodka based drinks.

It astounds me that beer is not only more expensive to produce, and also taxed more, yet is cheaper to buy than these 'premium' ciders! Producers and retailers are laughing all the way to the bank selling people this sort of crap for the price they do! This stuff is basically sugar solution with the legal minimum quantity of apple juice added, fermented, flavoured and sold for a huge premium. Sort of analogous to the 'malt liquor' found in the USA.

So props to Aldi for giving an inflated, but more realistic, approach to pricing. I've nothing against these drinks apart from the 'premium' aspect they're marketed on. They're just boozy Robinson's-R!

If you read the label (from a kopparberg):

"The juice of strawberries and lime are added to our apple cider..."

Why not neck a can of Tenants while you're at it. Sat in your pants, in your council flat.
Rekorderlig IS a cider, as is Koppaberg. Fruit infused cider was drunk by Viking marauders. Which is more than can be said for manly British lager.

I used to only drink cider until about a year ago. Now, I love lager…and some lagers out there are better than some ciders out there. Whilst I think Carling is quite nasty, I think Carlsberg is a bit nicer.
Would I say they’re better than Rekorderlig? Probably not…but I’d put a lot of ciders above that which are a lot better in terms of their origins, taste and depth rather than tasting of posh cordial…and I’d probably put other lagers I like above it too…but I won’t knock you for liking what you like!

You reminded me of an old peter kay joke about foreign chocolate fingeress "they taste exactly the same"

Love this deal but not as good as your prawn sandwich deal :-)

(Pssst, my list tops with Changs, San Miguel and 1664).

If I dropped a bottle of vinegar on my soiled boxer shorts, it would taste exactly the same as this cider...cold!

Looks worth a try but I could find none in my local aldi. Will have a try in the bigger ones thanks op

Good find. Wife loves Rekorderlig and I like a few of the largers Aldi do. Looks like were doing some shopping tommorrow. http://www.gamerkitten.com/images/smilies/thumbsup.gif

Thanks for the 7 deals you have posted, and the non homoerotic pic of a footballer, definitely don't want to guess your inclinations towards doing it.

The drink you may be referring to is called a Cheeky Vimto. Ice, Port and a bottle of blue WKD - the drink of a pure connoisseur, unlike Carling, Fosters, Carlseberg etc at 50p a can.

Favoured by the Yates / Walkabout / teenagers who enjoy pretending to be drunk / going to the bog a lot to check out other guys maggots.

Pretty sure the "pretty boys" with ridiculous haircuts, piercings, vests, elasticated jeans and meaningless tattoos drink this knat's pee.

I'd rather not surmise which group you belong to. They all look anything but manly. They all look pretty damn happy and gay, in the happy sense - not sure why...

If you're gonna drink lager - rule no 1 of being a man - don't admit and defend drinking stuff that is 4%!!!

LOL

It is cider since it is made out of a pear cider base, it is only flavored with Strawberry & Lime!
