Cider Crate Tasting Notes:

Smell: Medium-strong sour and astringent apples, syrupy and sweet with some spices.
Initial Taste: Smooth with no bite, a slight acidic apple followed quickly by baking spices.
After Taste: Becomes sweeter and more pie like.  Lingers a long time as if you just had a baked caramel apple pie.
On ice: N/A

Additional Notes:  Archibald’s – Spiced Winter Apple Wine is like an extra smooth ice cider, along with a blended apple pie.  It’s sweet but not too sugary, thick and has some spices that linger a long time.  A very unique take on an alcoholic apple product, worth a trip to pick one up.  An easy replacement for desert.
