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.

This is not your typical Angry Orchard offering. It lacks the crisp bite that you expect as well as the carbonation. The color is a light gold and the flavor is of green apples with a herbal floral hint. A pleasant beverage that should be served ice cold.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Tastes like the standard angry orchard but with floral aromas and flavors. The sweetness with background of herbal flowers is a nice complement.

Bottle in a mix pack from Nugget in Woodland, CA. Pours light perry color. Aroma is rather fruity - but not apple. Med minus body. Flavor is sort of pear, canned pear. With something like a perfume aspect. Then it goes almost berry. Flavorful. Different.
