Cider Crate Tasting Notes:

Smell: Minimal candied cherry and banana aromas
Initial Taste: Slightly sour with a mild bite. Natural cherry flavour (with notes of the cherry pits).
After Taste: Smooth and clean apple finish. Some mild sour notes remain on the palate. Not a long lingering taste.
On ice: Carbonation remains about the same on ice. The cider is less sour but the apple flavours are slightly reduced, so the cherry flavours become more prevalent.

Additional Notes: Collective Arts Cherry & Apple Cider is true-to-its-name with exactly those flavours tasted and no others detected. This cider strongly features the flavours and feels of the juices put into the cider, without a lot of the natural cider fermentation flavours obvious. It is slightly sour, very refreshing and it is one of the most genuine cherry tastes we’ve had in a cider thus far.
