3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
The cider pours like apple juice, with a spritzing head that fizzles away to just a ring. My glass is full of carbonation bubbles, and a steady stream works its way to the top of the glass. The ciderís body is properly clear with a slight haze, and the cider leaves a light wet ring of lacing around the glass. On the nose, the cider smells like yeasty apples with hints of pear, what must be elderflower, and a very sour apple tint. On the tongue, the cider tastes tart and sweet with a touch of bitterness. The flavors begin as tart green apples which work their way into yeasty bread flavors with sweet fuji apple and elderflower (I thinkÖ) tastes. The finish is quick with sweet fruity apple with a touch of acidic green apple. The aftertaste is sweet and tart, much like a candied green apple. On the mouth, the cider feels spritzy with carbonation, slightly to the point of fierceness. The ciderís body is just on the upper side of light, and the mouth is left pretty clean with just a touch of tingle in the tongue from the fierce carbonation, and some saliva in the sides of the mouth. Overall, this is decent cider that I could sip on a cool summerís day. Itís a little too sweet for me to drink regularly, but it has some nice complexity and variance in apple flavors. Iím not an expert on tasting ciders, but Iíd this one is pretty good, especially for its price point. Try it.

I wasnít entirely sure what I was tasting here. Apples, certainly; but following the pomaceous fruit flavor, was this peculiar numbing blossomy chemical tanginess resembling body fragrance and stale tea. Was not a fan. Iíd drink again, however, but only if pressed.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. Pours a very pale straw yellow with a minimal fizzy white head that faded completely. The nose is really pretty nice, the elderflower really comes out well, giving it a floral and fruity character. Thereís not much apple in the nose actually. The flavor is the best of the three Angry Orchards Iíve had thus far. The floral notes really dominate this and cover up all the sweet apple juice sweetness really well. Very fruity and drinkable, the combo of the flower and the apple make for a blueberry like flavor thatís really pleasant. Light bodied and only lightly clingy with fizzy carbonation. Pretty decent cider.

This one is better than the regular Angry Orchard, I like the floral like flavor that isnít too present, but a nice touch in the background.
