Cider Crate Tasting Notes:
Smell: Medium aroma. Mostly dry apples with hints of floral and must.
Initial Taste: Light bite from carbonation. Quickly followed by a semi-sweet apple base that is slightly tangy and acidic. Mild honey and floral hints. Effervescent.
After Taste: Acidity and tanginess grow, lingers a long time. Very clean finish, sweeter as time goes on but no grittiness.
On ice: Smoother on ice, less tangy, less crisp and thinner.
Additional Notes: Arrested Development by Kings Mill Cider is a clean, crisp and slightly acidic cider. Made with heritage apples, its mostly dry with a hint of sweetness, making it an off-dry selection. A traditional, easy to drink cider, you would almost think it’s a “light cider offering, but it’s 10% and it will sneak up on you. It gets tangier as the bottle warms with a long lasting aftertaste. A very good traditional cider that refreshes.
