Cider Crate Tasting Notes:

Smell: Strong aroma. Sweet pulpy apple with candied, floral notes.
Initial Taste: Light bite from carbonation. Quickly sweet and syrupy. Light and dessert like. Medium-level floral notes.
After Taste: Becomes slightly less sweet, fades quickly.  Some wine elements remain in the aftertaste.
On ice: Less carbonation, smoother flavour.

Additional Notes:  Growers Rosé cider is light and sweet and rather candied tasting overall.  It almost reminds us of a soda or an artificially-flavoured fruit wine then a cider.  Heavy on the dessert apples and not long lingering, it is a simple, commercial take on a rose cider. Would appeal to cooler drinkers.
