Cider Crate Tasting Notes:

Smell: Strong aroma. Sweet and juicy candied peach.
Initial Taste: Minimal bite but semi-tingly.  Strong smooth and creamy peach. A lot of peach pulp. Slight sweet apple.
After Taste: Remains peach focused. Quick aftertaste that does not linger long, except a few peach pit elements.
On ice: Much flatter and even more juice like without the carbonation.

Additional Notes:  Cowbell Brewing’s Peach Cider would be familiar to Ontario drinkers as its a very similar peach juice drink (with hints of apple) you probably had as a child. Semi-sweet and very peach forward, it has a hint of dessert apples and does not linger overly long.  Very little alcoholic notes in this 5% cider, and very juice forward.
