Tonight enjoying a bottle of Green Apple from Angry Orchard Hard Cider.
Taste study for my cider judge certification.
Green Apple and tropical on the nose, crisp, sweet to sharp Green Apple on the palate, with medium – high acidity. Pleasantly tart with balanced sweetness.
Very light carbonation.
Apple varieties Granny Smith, Fuji, Gala, Pink Lady, and Braeburn.
Angry Orchard Hard Cider – Walden N.Y.
A pleasant drinking cider which lives up to it’s green apple name.
In judging this cider I would grade favorably with minimal deductions for aroma, balance, and complexity.
WineryEscapades scores as Silver Medal worthy.
