Cider Crate Tasting Notes:
Smell: Medium aroma. Fermented pineapple with black pepper hints. Some dessert apples.
Initial Taste: Mild bite from carbonation. Smooth, creamy pineapple. Pineapple fermentation notes are minimal. Clean green apple flavour without the sour notes. Some apple tannins.
After Taste: Pineapple continues, becomes sweeter. Vanilla hints. Ends creamy, off-dry. Mild spice notes.
On ice: Carbonation reduced. Pineapple punch is weakened. More apple notes come through.
Additional Notes: Slabtown’s Pineapple Mimosa is a very pineapple focused offering, with mild apple notes, that remind us of green apple varieties. With a champagne yeast added, it adds a light sparkle and taste but its not heavy like a true sparkling wine. Ends quite creamy. Light body, easy drinking. Of the two bottles we had, one was smooth (2021) the other had more pineapple fermentation notes which had some bitterness (2020).
