Cider Crate Tasting Notes:
Smell: Light aroma. Bright, sweet and crisp honeycrisp apple.
Initial Taste: Minimal bite. Crisp, very authentic and natural honeycrisp apple flavour. Mild honey aspects. Mild fermentation notes.
After Taste: Juicy honey crisp apple continues the same. Mild Earthy hints. Mostly dry finish. Average mouthfeel length.
On ice: Slightly watered down. Mildly less sweet.
Additional Notes: Clafeld’s Honeycrisp Cider is a very authentic single varietal cider that tastes like the apple itself but less sweet and with noticeable fermentation notes (but the sugar is now mostly alcohol and it shows). A very juicy and crisp cider, it also has a mostly single flavour journey that ends mostly dry. Apple is bright and clean. A very straightforward but satisfying cider done well for its intention.
