Cider Crate Tasting Notes:
Smell: Strong aroma of juicy fresh strawberries. A sweet, slightly earthy apple base.
Initial Taste: Medium bite from acidity, mild carbonation. Quick burst of sweet, juicy strawberries with some tangy apples, slightly caramelized in nature. Some earthiness. Banana, lemon and honey notes.
After Taste: Strawberry remains strong but apple flavour becomes more present. Mild acidity and mustiness. Sweet, refreshing finish.
On ice: Carbonation cut. Smoother with a bit less flavour.
Additional Notes: A juicy offering, the Eden’s Apple Strawberry adds a fresh strawberry flavour to their original Eden’s Apple semi-sweet cider but it is not sugary or gritty. Rather creamy, it almost melts in the mouth. Defined by a tangy, thicker, and fresh, almost milky mouth feel, you could easily find yourself having it in place of strawberry shortcake. Very full bodied and full flavoured.
