Cider Crate Tasting Notes:

Smell: Medium aroma. Fleshy, bitter-sharp apple with wild raspberry notes. Some earthy elements
Initial Taste: Medium bite from carbonation. Semi-tart and fresh raspberries undertone with semi-sweet apple base
After Taste: Flavours slightly intensifies and becomes more pronounced. Some dryness and more earthy, elements present.  Finishes like a raspberry fruit wine.
On ice: Reduced carbonation and apple elements. Thinner body.

Additional Notes:  The award winning (2019 Craft Beer & Cider Awards at the Royal Winter Fair) Raspberry Cider (carbonated) by Kings Mill is a lighter cider offering – though its ABV 9% – with earthy and fresh natural raspberries.  Not overly juice forward, it is light, clean with some wine-like finishing elements. Tastes infused and not juiced. Becomes more defined as it warms, so feel free to let it get closer to room temperature.
