Cider Crate Tasting Notes:
Smell: Sweet apple with floral and honey tones. Has hints of sour apples
Initial Taste: Minimal bite and very smooth. Crisp, fleshy-apple flavour. Sweet and slightly musty. Honey undertones.
After Taste: Strong apple finish. Pineapple and floral notes. Mustiness slightly remains.
On ice: Carbonation bubbles weaken and become smaller. Flavour weakens on ice. Remains a sweet, musty apple flavour.
Additional Notes: Ardiel Dry Cider is a light, easy drinking, crisp cider that would be quite refreshing on a humid day. It has many traditional apple cider elements with unique pineapple, floral and honey notes. Has characteristics of a white wine – probably due to similar techniques being used at the winery it is made at.
