Angry Orchard Crisp Apple Cider has a bright, crisp apple flavor, just like biting into a fresh apple. It is a perfect balance of sweetness and bright acidity from culinary apples and dryness of traditional cider making apples, resulting in a complex, yet refreshing, hard cider.View all products by Angry Orchard
Angry Orchard Crisp Apple Cider is a highly satisfying hard cider made by the great cider making minds of the Hudson Valley in New York. Developed to be the perfect balance of sweetness and dry acidity, it's a wonderful blended cider for the tenured cider geek or a freshman in the subject. It's a gluten free product made completely through the fermentation of apple juice and serves as a testament to the incredible fruit that comes right off the tree on farms across the country, hand selected by the cider makers.
Like with a great beer or wine, it's always recommended to pour cider into a glass. This allows the aroma to open up and also gives us a chance to see the clear, golden color of the beverage. Made with four different types of dessert apples and five different varieties of French bittersweet cider apples, the nose is more complex than one might imagine. That luxurious smell of fresh crushed apples is what stands at the forefront, but when pondered further the subtleties of the various styles can be picked out one at a time. Apple skins, caramel, the tartness of a green cider apple. All of it is there and it carries through on the flavor which is sweet and fruity, but balanced with a subtle acidity.
Angry Orchard Crisp Apple Cider can be enjoyed in a more modern take on apple pie by pairing it with a grilled burger topped with a thick slice of sharp cheddar cheese, or get wild and try it alongside a spicy Thai curry dish for a bit of zesty fruit character alongside the spice and coconut. Enjoy a cold bottle of Angry Orchard while doing a bit of fruit tree gardening of your own or share a pint with a friend as you binge on your favorite TV show.
