COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This cider has tropical notes from the elderflower balanced by a fresh, bright, fruity flavor reminiscent of lychee, pears, and citrus. This flower compliments the crisp apple flavor resulting in a balanced sweetness that brings the fruit and flower together.

Bottle shared with the wife. Pours a lightly hazed vitamin pee yellow. Second one tonight. What’s with these ciders looking like vitamin piss? This one even has a bit of white bubbles around the edge. Smells decidedly floral, overwhelmingly so even. Flowers and bubble gum. Medium bodied, tastes of flowers and soda, a little bit of apple and honey. A bit sweet I think, but for some reason I like it. Finishes up a bit sweet, lingering floral notes. Flowers in a glass. Interesting at least.

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.

Heathen (1500) - Wilmington, Delaware, USA - OCT 22, 2014
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. It’s 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, I’d 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. It’s 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 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.
