Cider Crate Tasting Notes:
Smell: Medium aroma. Sweet, creamy strawberries. Some natural earthy notes with underlying rhubarb.
Initial Taste: Medium bite from carbonation. Rhubarb start, with noticeable fresh field strawberries. Some dessert apple-like notes. Clean with some tangy and tart notes.
After Taste: Rhubarb dissipates a bit with slightly more strawberry notes coming in. Lingers a long time and becomes slightly drier to finish.
On ice: Carbonation reduced dramatically. Smoother, more apple forward with less overall flavour
Additional Notes: The Strawberry Rhubarb by Kings Mill is a well balanced, flavourful, fun and light cider, even at 9%. Extra clean, it starts slightly more rhubarb followed by fresh, creamy strawberries and a smooth apple base. Mild tartness from fruits. A sweeter cider but not sugary or cloying. Sparkly but light mouthfeel makes for a whimsical experience.
