Cider Crate Tasting Notes:

Smell: Faint sweat raspberry and apple
Initial Taste: Smooth, crisp apple that quickly fade with tangy notes
After Taste:  Raspberry comes through with a sweet, semi-sugary finish but does not linger long. More of a candy raspberry then a true apple.
On ice: Tangy and carbonation cut dramatically, quite a flat and semi-flavourless finish. Smoother and reduces sweetness.

Additional Notes:  A smooth, candied raspberry taste, the Woodchuck Raspberry offers a light summer cider at 4%.  With elements like a sweet raspberry pop, the apple base is similar to that of the standard Woodchuck Hard Cider.
