Cider Crate Tasting Notes:

Smell: Strong, candied watermelon  with sweet apple
Initial Taste: Minimal bite, strong quick candied watermelon followed by a sweet apple juice.
After Taste: Becomes sweeter and has a long lingering aftertaste, similar to have just eaten a watermelon flavoured sugared soft gummy candy.
On ice: Thickness and carbonation is reduced, leaving a thinner consistency.  More candied on ice.

Additional Notes: Somersby Watermelon will have a familiar taste to regular Somersby drinkers.  This time, its infused with a sweet, soft gummy candied watermelon taste that is quite strong.  It stays on the palate for a long time, is very sugar forward but still quite a light offering.
