Cider Crate Tasting Notes:

Smell: Sweet natural apple cider smell with brown sugar and cinnamon aromas
Initial Taste: Quite sweet with a minimum carbonation bite. Pulpy and juicy apple flavour. Slightly acidic.
After Taste: Cinnamon flavour strongly develops and shines. Spicy notes linger long on the palate.
On ice: Less carbonation but the cinnamon flavour is stronger.
Heated: Becomes astringent and tangy. Less sweet and it cuts a lot of the cinnamon flavour.

Additional Notes: This drink reminds us of the apple ciders you’d have around a fire or on a sleigh ride with family. Even as a cold beverage, it tastes like a warm, comforting apple pie. However, we do not recommend heating the cider as per the bottle’s suggestion, as it strongly impacts the cider’s sweetness and the cinnamon flavours, which we feel are the best features.
