Cider Crate Tasting Notes:

Smell: Medium sweet elderflower, with little apple
Initial Taste:  Minimal bite, smooth but strong elderflower flavour.  Some carbonation fizz in initial taste.
After Taste:  Sweet, semi-long lingering aftertaste, with hints of sweet apples.  Honey finish.
On ice:  Reduced carbonation, reduced apple flavour. Elderflower tastes almost like a juice.

Additional Notes:  A very floral drink, Strongbow Elderflower offers a summer time option that has a very light sweet apple flavour.  With no real fermentation notes, it has a noticable apple juice base.  Commercial, but not excessively sweet.
