Cider Crate Tasting Notes:

Smell: Medium, sweet and clean apple juice smell with no fermentation notes
Initial Taste: Slight tingle from carbonation. Smooth. Sweet, bright tasting single-variety apple flavour.
After Taste: Remains a smooth apple flavour and sensation. Clean taste and finish. Some tangy notes.
On ice: Carbonation and flavour only mildly cut on ice.

Additional Notes: Reinhart’s Red Apple Cider is as promised: a light apple cider that is very easy to drink, clean tasting from start to finish and very sweet. It is very refreshing and does not have any malty or bitter notes from the fermentation process. It is a simple, classic cider offering – only slightly more complex than straight apple juice.
