Cider Crate Tasting Notes:
Smell: Strong candied peach. Sweet with some fleshy smell.
Initial Taste: Light bite from carbonation, quickly taken over by sweet and sugary peach juice. Mild apple.
After Taste: Strong candied peach lingers a long time. Sugary residue left in the mouth. No apple flavours detecable. Sweet, semi-dry, wine-like finish.
On ice: Looses some carbonation and becomes a little smoother.
Additional Notes: A cloyingly sweet peach cider, Magnotta’s full-flavoured cider is very summer-oriented. Landing somewhere between a Tim Hortons Peach Drink and an Orange Crush pop, it is extra sweet – almost like you are drinking a fuzzy peach in cider form. This cider could appeal to commercially-based ciders, or anyone with a sweet tooth.
