Cider Crate Tasting Notes:

Smell: Sour apples with hints of lemon.
Initial Taste: Medium bite, First taste of some apples followed by lemons.  carbonation is tart.
After Taste: Lemons linger, fermentation process is strong and somewhat overwhelming in the aftertaste.
On ice: On ice looses a bit of taste and most of the bite and tartness.

Additional Notes:  A slightly tart medium cider with a lot of carbonation and fermentation tastes, this lemon infused Quebec apple cider is pretty unique.  You can tell it is a Quebec cider, splash of lemon peel, it  finishes with a strong fermentation taste, almost like club soda.  It’s a cider base, but not much cider taste to it.
