Light sweet floral scent, pours an almost champagne like pale yellow color with minimal to no head. Initial flavor is slightly sour, which opens up to a sweet savory finish. Light body, soft carbonation, thin texture. Finish matures from an apple sweetness to a pleasantly bitter floral note from the elderflower.
This is my favorite of Angry Orchard’s seasonal ciders. Very sessionable and satisfying on a hot summer day.

This is hands down one of my favorite seasonal ciders. Not too sweet, not syrupy. Refreshing and exotic. A little floral, but doesn’t have that perfume flavor that a lot of florals do. The aftertaste is the best part about this cider. Delicious.

I don’t usually like ciders but, you must try this seasonal cider. My wife loves it. Great summer cider.

Bottle thanks to Everett. Pours a clear gold with small frothy white head that diminishes to nothing. The aroma is citrus, floral and apple skin. Thin mouthfeel with flat apple and metallic finish. Meh

Pale, champagne colored, bubbly. Standard longneck - it’s hard to tell the variants apart. The Pufnstuf trees are different without distinction. Sweet aroma, with an odd florality - I pick up some fresh peppercorn volatiles in there as well. Sweet, very sweet. Oddly fruity, and I get some peppercorn notes in the flavor profile as well. Light body, finish gets a little clingy. Ok, but not going for seconds. ABC, Bull Run.

Tallahassee, Fl - Publix Supermarket - Blairstone - 12 oz bottle. Sparkling medium golden pour, no discernible head. Aroma has some tropical fruit accents, a touch of apple juice. Crisp flavor, nice mellow apple fruitness, a touch of pear sweetness, just a hint of some unknown spice - must be elderflower. Nice crisp mouthfeel. Very refreshing.

Weak aroma. Strong metallic flavor that lingers after the swish. Pour is a crystal clear yellow with no head.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
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.

Bottle from Bishop Cider. Light pour. Aroma is light and floral. Taste is definitely showcasing the elderflower, sweet, and apple. Floral finish.
