Cider Crate Tasting Notes:

Smell: Medium aroma. Sweet, creamy, slightly acidic and crisp apples. Hints of maple sugar.
Initial Taste: Light bite. Quick apple flavour that’s very sweet and smooth. Juicy medley of apple flavours. Sweet maple notes.
After Taste: Apple flavour becomes a bit more peel focused. Sweet, quick tangy finish. Mostly clean.
On ice: Less acidity, slightly reduced flavour. Less maple flavour.

Additional Notes:  The Sweet Nation’Spiked by Domaine Cléroux is a very apple forward juice that features hints of smooth, sweet maple syrup. Juicy with some peel notes, it has a strong blend of dessert apple flavours. A naturally sweet cider well done, its strong apple flavour and depth could even draw dry cider fans.
