Cider Crate Tasting Notes:

Smell: Very minimal. Sweet and tart apple aromas
Initial Taste: Medium bite from carbonation. A single semi-dry apple flavour that becomes very prevalent. Some fermentation notes
After Taste: Carbonation and flavour dissipate quickly. Some elements of tangyness and earthiness.  Sugary residue is that lingers.  Very short aftertaste.
On ice: Less flavour and carbonation.

Additional Notes:  Rock Creek Dry Apple Cider is one of the most crisp ciders we have come across.  It’s a single apple flavour, that dissipates extra quick. A more minimalist cider that would also refresh when in need of hydration.
