Cider Crate Tasting Notes:

Smell: Mild aroma. Sweet dessert apple. Crisp, juicy.
Initial Taste: Medium bite from carbonation and acidity. Semi-sweet apples with a slight tanginess becomes present.
After Taste: Becomes tangier in the aftertaste and a bit more sour.  Apple flavour dissipates. Light and clean, and very natural. Almost has pear-like elements.
On ice: Carbonation is cut. Slightly smoother

Additional Notes:  Semi-sweet and crisp, Fielding Craft Cider’s Premium Dry Hard Cider is a lighter offering, with some dessert apple flavours upfront.  It becomes a bit more tangy and sour in the aftertaste.  Very little elements from the fermentation process are noticeable, and it is not as dry as the name suggests.  Some honey and/or pear like elements with mild tropical undertones.
