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.

This one is better than the regular Angry Orchard, I like the floral like flavor that isn’t too present, but a nice touch in the background.

Bottle. Light golden color. Taste and aroma is a pleasant slight floral one. Actually one of the better major ciders out there.

12floz/355ml bottle into a weizen glass. Served cold. Aroma: Apple, yes, but drier than the crisp apple that AO puts out. I don’t know how to describe the other, more prominent aroma, so I’ll attribute it to the elderflower. It smells dry, mildly flowery, and a teeny bit soapy. Appearance: Crystal clear pale yellow body with no head. Taste: Oh wow, there is a definite lychee flavor at first and a little citrus at the end. Subtle dry apple throughout. Pleasant balance between sweet and dry. Palate: Light body. A little sticky. Short, acidic, citrus-forward finish. Overall: Pretty typical cider all around, except for that lychee flavor which was quite nice and refreshing.

Last of the sampler (finally). Another headless pour but this time it is a much lighter yellow. Smells like really cheap wine. Odd smell of berries or grapes with apple juice mixed in. Actually tastes better than it smells. A bit too sweet and still has that berry kind of character to it. Little citrus towards the end but overall just not all that great. OK no more hard cider for me. It is just not my style. Back to ales.

12oz bottle. Mostly clear, lighter yellow color. Minimal white head, couple bits of lace. Smooth, crisp lighter carbonation. Medium body. Lightly sticky texture. Good apple and floral flavor. Little honey. Moderate sweet taste, light citrus zest. Pretty tasty cider. Elderflower is a nice twist that complements the apple well.

Golden color. Light fizz. Smells sweet, of apple and pears. Mustard after taste. Odd, but still good. Would not turn it down if offered, but would not seek out either.

Pours a light, clear golden with light carbonation and no head. Mild aroma of pear, tart apples and box-o-wine chardonnay. Taste is stronger, starting with crisp apple sweetness. Finishes dry and tart. Light and easy drinking, this is made for a summer day. Too light of a cider to be one of the better ones, but very far from offensive.

The aroma of this cider is subtle overall but with some hints of apple and a general flower scent, and the appearance is a clear, very light yellow with no head. The taste is quite sweet and mildly sour, and the palate combines a light body, flat carbonation, thin and slick texture, and a sour finish.

Brief write-up. Pours a chill-hazed straw color. Beyond the typical note of sweet apple on the aroma, there’s a slight herbal component as well - one that not only interests me, but balances a touch of the sweetness. The flavor profile is much the same way: yes it has a lot of sweet apple, but there are some notes of herbs, apricot, and tropical fruit that actually create a modicum of interest here. The feel is typical, though - very sweet on the finish. Having said that, this isn’t bad at all.

Bottle. Aroma shows faint apple but taste is sweeter than the dry cider. A good different.
