Cider Crate Tasting Notes:



Smell:
Medium, extra sweet ripe Bartlett pear, some elements of spices
Initial Taste:  light bite from carbonation, followed by sweet juicy Bartlett pear. Clear and crisp with a bit of tanginess.
After Taste: becomes almost sweeter in the aftertaste with a light film of pear. Quite long-lingering, with some smokey elements.
On ice: Carbonation is cut, little less sweet pear.

Additional Notes:  A very pear forward sweet offering, the non-alcoholic version from Spirit Tree is crisp and clean with a bit of smokiness.  Easy to drink but a bit sugary with some tanginess.  Stays with you for quite a while.  Sweeter then their alcoholic Perry.
