Cider Crate Tasting Notes:
Smell: Strong aroma. Sweet dessert apples blended evenly with muddled strawberries.
Initial Taste: Slight bite from acidity, rather smooth and creamy apple with some tangy and acetic strawberry. Has some floral hibiscus notes but not overpowering.
After Taste: Apple flavour reduces and becomes more of a fresh and creamy strawberry. Become drier, and does not linger too long on the palate.
On ice: Reduced carbonation, tanginess and less juicy.
Additional Notes: The Strawberry Hibiscus by Reinhart’s is an interesting blend of dessert apples with some acetic and muddled Strawberries to start. It finishes cleaner than it starts, and has almost a strawberry tart element to it. Fresh but not over-ripe strawberries with minimal hibiscus, it has a lot of forward flavour.
