Cider Crate Tasting Notes:

Smell: Strong aroma of extra sweet dessert-like apples.  Mild pear-like elements
Initial Taste: Light bite from carbonation. Sweet and strong dessert apples. Some tonic elements with mild bubble-gum notes.
After Taste: Dissipates quickly, sweetness reduces and tonic elements remain.  Stays sweet throughout.
On ice: less carbonation, slightly less sweet.

Additional Notes:  A very sweet, juicy apple, the Lonetree Authentic Dry Cider is apple forward with a bit of a bubble-gum feel and taste.  Tastes almost alcohol free, it has some tonic elements but does not linger long.  Approachable and an easy entry for new cider drinkers.
