Cider Crate Tasting Notes:
Smell: Medium aroma. Fresh, crushed berries with some wine and sweet apples.
Initial Taste: Light bite from carbonation. Light mixed berries (strawberry, raspberry, and some blueberry) with a smooth, dessert apple. Slight alcoholic taste that balances with sweet notes. Very sweet.
After Taste: Dissipates very quick. Reduction in berry flavours and finishes with a light, sweet, juicy apple flavour that is slightly sweet with a little film in the mouth.
On ice: Carbonation is cut. Less alcoholic taste.
Additional Notes: The Mixed Berry by No Boats On Sunday – although not listing berries in the ingredients – is a balance between the apple and berry aspects but not balanced when it comes to the sweet factor, it’s pretty high. Dessert apple forward, it’s sweet and clean with some red fruit flavours. A mild alcohol taste but it’s easy to drink for the average consumer. Sweeter than the rest of the product line with less apple flavour.
