Cider Crate Tasting Notes:

Smell: Medium candied berry smells – raspberry most obvious. Slightly acidic.
Initial Taste: Smooth with little bite, bitterly sweet with some acidity. Artificial strawberry and raspberry flavours quickly distinguishable.
After Taste: Remains very sweet, with an almost syrupy taste. Blueberry flavours more prominent. Almost combines to taste like rhubarb. Very little apple flavour.  After taste does not stay on the palate.
On ice: Less carbonation and flavour. A smoother flavour profile with less bitterness and acidity. Still very sweet in taste.

Additional Notes: A refreshing summer drink but more on the commercial, artificial side of beverages. Has very little cider taste to it and could almost be taken as a vodka style mixed drink.  If you are not a fan of the apple side – but like a cooler – this would be a great introduction; though we wouldn’t necessarily call it a “cider” in traditional terms.
