In this cider blog, we are going into a new everyday cider from Blake’s Hard Cider. It is their former summer seasonal, which is called Wakes Fire Cider. If you read my earlier cider blog posts on their ciders, you know the history of this Michigan’s biggest cider makers. If you have not, please, read them to get to know this Michigan base cider makers. Let us get into this cider.
This cider has a clear golden color without a head on it. The aroma has a orange and slight cherry notes. The taste has a sweet cherry with a hint of orange notes. The aftertaste has an apple juice finish. It is pretty drinkable cider.
Here is a description from their website (www.blakeshardcider.com):
It’s impossible to replicate a Michigan summer. Recreating a northern night under the stars would be a futile endeavor. So, we’ve done the next best thing – we’ve crafted summer’s perfect ally. Experience WakeFire, a comforting blend of Michigan-grown cherries, orange peel and our famous Blake’s apples.

Tabbing out, as many of you know, I am not a cider fan at all. This group of cider makers are making me a fan at least with their brands. I was pretty excited to learn that they were putting their Wake Fire in cans and then make it all year long. This cider has Michigan grown cherries and orange. It is well balanced and a perfect cider for any season. I love it. One of my favorite ciders from this cider makers. I highly recommend this cider. Go get some! Drink it! Enjoy it! Metal it! \m/
