Cider Crate Tasting Notes:

Initial Taste: Light to medium bite, light apple taste
After Taste: Slightly tart, with earthy tones and a bit of filmy finish.  Ends with a strong wheat beer aftertaste and little to apple flavour.
On ice: A little smoother. carbonation reduced.

Additional Notes:  A wheat beer that holds a hint of apple.  Much more on the beer side then other beers which could come off as a cider.  Sweet and refreshing.
