Cider Crate Tasting Notes:

Smell: Strong sweet peach aroma –  with some blackberry and sweet apple.
Initial Taste: Mild sensation and bite from carbonation and acidity.  Sweet apples, with peach overtaking and becoming most dominant.  Blackberry is noticeable, but more of an undertone here.
After Taste:  Slight tartness from blackberry, which the flavour is much more present in the aftertaste.  Lingers a long time, leaves a slight sugar residue in the mouth.
On ice: Thinner, but similar flavour.

Additional Notes:  A very juicy and fruit forward cider, the Country Blackberry and peach starts off sweet and peachy, and finishes more with the blackberry flavour.  It’s sweet – more so than other County offerings – and very full flavoured/full bodied. Perfect to quench a thirst under the rays of the blaring sun.
