COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This cider has tropical notes from the elderflower balanced by a fresh, bright, fruity flavor reminiscent of lychee, pears, and citrus. This flower compliments the crisp apple flavor resulting in a balanced sweetness that brings the fruit and flower together.

12 oz. Pours clear and pale gold with a head that immediately sizzles away. Aroma is spicy pollen, sweet berry and apple. Tastes of spicy vanilla flower, apple-berry mix, and pleasant notes of peppery zest and woody pith. Light body is sweet but has a light astringency and a tart, zesty dryness on the finish. I like elderberry, and I like how they meshed it with the apple to create a totally different fruit flavor.

Among one of the better ones from the very sweet line of Angry Orchard ciders. The floral notes in the nose and flavor were pleasing and provided something else to take your mind off the overpowering sugary apple sweetness.

This might be a nice change of pace for folks who are fans of the alcoholic apple juice type of ciders but it really doesn’t work for me. It is clear yellow and headless. The nose is mild w/ a floral note being most evident, presumably from the elderflower. This is pretty sweet but at least not cloyingly so but not really tart enough to give it a crisp snap. The floral note combines w/ some apple juice character and the end result is something that reminds me quite a bit of Smarties candies. This is medium bodied w/ relatively mild carbonation and the end result both in flavor and texture is a sort of flat, boring cider that isn’t alltogether bad but also isnt particularly flavorful or good either.

Sample at Hopfest 2014. Comes a pale gold with a small white head. Aroma of fruit and floral. Taste is apple, fruit, and floral. Decent enough hot day drink.
