Cider Crate Tasting Notes:

Smell: Medium smell. Musty apple aromas with hints of white wine.
Initial Taste: Minimal bite. Smooth, sweet apple flavours with some sour and musty notes. Noticeable malty tones. Acidity that reminds us of lemons.
After Taste: Sweet apple flavour continues. Honey makes a mild appearance. Tangy, dry, white wine-like finish.
On ice: Becomes more smooth. Apple flavour is cut.

Additional Notes: Oh Beehave is a crisp and dry apple cider that features apple flavours first; with the honey flavours secondary. This cider has a rustic, countryside appeal.
