Angry Orchard Summer Honey

Posted: July 27, 2015 in Boston Beer Company, Cider, Reviews

I opened this cider for the other half. She wasn’t a big fan of it and I think she ended up drain pouring it at the end of the night. She let me take a picture and a few sips for research purposes. This is one of their seasonal ciders that’s available from March through August. She picked it up as a single, and I’m glad that we didn’t commit to more than that.

ABV: 5%

Style: Cider

Trivia: According to the brewery website, “Our Summer Honey cider is a light and refreshing cider with subtle notes of wildflower honey, perfect for those warmer months.”

Random: I still haven’t tried all of their regular offerings. They’re widely available, so no real excuse here.

This cider poured with a one finger, light white head that dissipated quickly. There was no lacing left on the glass. The body was a clear, very light yellow color with moderate carbonation visible. The nose was subtle with apples and floral notes with some sweetness. The taste was way too light. There was some honey and apple with very minor floral notes, but the cider itself was really under flavored. It was like drinking diluted cider. The body was also light and carbonation was moderate. It had a quick finish with very little flavor. This cider was $2.29 for the single bottle, which broke down to $.19 per ounce. Even if it was cheaper, I wouldn’t have this again. It was the most under flavored cider I’ve ever had. At least they have many other offerings that I enjoy.

Untappd Rating: 2.5/5.0

    I too wasn’t at all impressed with this cider, but haven’t been with any Angry Orchard cider. Every honey cider I’ve had was either not flavorful enough or was syrup sweet.
