Cider Crate Tasting Notes:

Smell: Strong, sweet orange pop-like and passion fruit notes.
Initial Taste: light bite from carbonation, sweet syrupy passion-fruit and candied orange taste.
After Taste: Reduces quickly, becomes more sweet and pop-like.  Little apple flavour. Some syrup elements to finish, though light overall.
On ice: Carbonation is reduced, little else changes.

Additional Notes:  Part of a long line of Danish Ciders, the Tempt Dirty Passion is their sweet and sugary commercial take on a passion fruit cider.  It’s very pop-like in nature, close to an orange crush or c-plus, though maybe even sweeter with a little less carbonation.  Made with Apple wine, it’s light, candied and far from traditional.
