Cider Crate Tasting Notes:
Smell: Light apple smell, slightly musky. Tannins provide a smell that is astringent and like a wine.
Initial Taste: Bitter and sour floral tastes. Musty and earthy, with slight hints of raspberry.
Aftertaste: Turns more tart than sour. Dry flavour with apple flavours emerging. Hints of malt flavours.
On Ice: Adds some carbonation, bigger bubbles. Big difference for flavour, ice weakens the bitterness and is less sour. Becomes sweeter with more fruity flavours.
Additional Notes: A more upscale wine-type of cider that would pair well with a romantic meal. You can tell it has been aged in a barrel for a long period, because of the earthy, musty flavour.
