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.

Bottle. Pours a clear yellowish gold with a white head that dissipates nearly completely and quickly. Aroma has notes of pear and sweet apple with some light spice underlying. Flavor has lots of sweet pear with some sweet apple with a bit of light spice underlying.

THOUGHTS: Nice. Refreshing Definitely more than just apples going on here.
TECHNICAL: Drank 5/4/2013. Bottle. Poured an ever-so-slightly hazy, light yellow with virtually no head. The aroma was weak but pleasant. It had grape, apple, pear, light pineapple, white wine, slight lemon, floral notes and other tropical fruits. The initial flavor was moderately sweet and lightly acidic; while the finish was lightly sweet, moderately acidic and slightly sour with an average duration. There was apple, lighter fruits, pear, white grapes, white wine, lemon and pineapple. The light to medium body was dry with a lightly soft but tingly carbonation.

Very flowery taste, like biting into a flower. Great aroma to it. A good change of pace for cider drinkers.

This stuff is weird more than anything. Itís very floral, like "oh my god did I just eat a flower" floral. The best way I can describe it is as though herbal tea and cider had a baby. If you like that sort of thing, Iíd say go for it.

Tap in NYC. Flowery, fruity, perfumy nose,apple, cherries, fllowers. Sweet and fruity, definitely too sweet, but somehow I kinda like it. Low carbonation helps. Interesting, ok.

bottle - This cider smells of apples and some mild florals. The flavor is sweet without being overpoweringly so and has a pleasant floral character in the background. Itís nice and refreshing.

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 Orchardís 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 doesnít have that perfume flavor that a lot of florals do. The aftertaste is the best part about this cider. Delicious.
