Bottle. Sweet commercial apple juice and light pear aroma. Clear gold, no head per usual for cider. Sweet and slightly tart apple and distinctive perfumey elderflower flavor. Light body, lively carbonation, and slightly dry finish.

Thoroughly ok. Tart, sweet, and not too floral. Before woodchuck reformulated their spring cider, it was way to floral. This had the floral note reigned in so it complements rather than takes charge.

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.

Among one of the better ones from the very sweet line of Angry Orchard ciders. The floral notes in the nose and flavor were pleasing and provided something else to take your mind off the overpowering sugary apple sweetness.

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.

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

12oz bottle poured into a shaker. Pours a clear pale gold with no head. Aroma of apples and citrus. Taste is light sweet. Mostly apples with a little tropical junk in the aftertaste. Light bodied with a slightly aticky texture. Fizzy carbonation and a decently long finish. Overall, not bad. Not one of my favorites though.

Ehh... Nothing to rave about here. Of course it tastes like tart apples. Not so much lychee (but it is there). It probably would have stood out more if the presence of elderflower in the aroma and taste. The finish was nice though, like crisp apple peel and flower petals.

12oz twist-off bottle, white label. Yellow color. Tastes of apple juice with a touch of floral, cranberry essence. Smells of flowers. Very thin. It’s better than Angry Orchard Crisp Apple. (3681)
