Cider Crate Tasting Notes:
Smell: Light aroma. Crisp, bright apples. Slight floral notes
Initial Taste: Light bite and thin apple. Bright and light dessert apples. Mild sour green apple notes. A touch floral.
After Taste: Clears out quickly, leaving a mild hibiscus aftertaste that’s more prominent than the apple. Clean finish.
On ice: Slightly watered down flavour including less apple.
Additional Notes: The Roselle by Sarah Cole is a very light, 3% offering that’s smooth and with a thin mouthfeel. Little elements of alcohol, its dessert apple forward with some hibiscus and floral notes in the aftertaste. Very clean, light bodied and light flavour overall.
