Cider Crate Tasting Notes:

Smell: Medium aroma. Sweet, musty, slightly earthy. Mild sulphur notes.
Initial Taste: Medium bite from acidity, mild carbonation. Quick burst of sweet, tangy apples (slightly caramelized). Some earthiness. Banana, lemon and honey notes.
After Taste: Caramelized apple flavour continues. Mild acidity and mustiness. Semi-sweet, yeast-based finish.
On ice: Carbonation cut. Smoother with a bit less flavour. More citrus notes.

Additional Notes:  Eden’s Apple is indeed a semi-sweet cider but it is not sugary on the palate whatsoever. Rather creamy, it almost melts in the mouth. Defined by a tangy, thicker, caramelized apple flavour, it ends on a noticeable yeast-like flavour and sensation. Has a lot of unique character notes like banana and lemon. Very full bodied and full flavoured.
