Today, I'm sharing my review of Angry Orchard's Walden Hollow... I like how bready, yeasty, and apply this cider smells. What makes it striking isn't the individual notes but how each of those things distinctly. I don't know if I have ever smelled cider that reminds me of fresh bread dough. There's just a little sourness in the array of smells. Overall these aromas are excellent. This can be accurately described as a semi-dry cider, and I appreciate the accuracy of the official descriptions thus far.
As apple season comes to an end, Angry Orchard is offering a terrific opportunity to get into an orchard and enjoy some outdoor music and tasty new ciders. The cidery is throwing its first annual Harvest Fest on Saturday, October 15, from 2–9 p.m. at their orchard in Walden, New York, with headlining talent Matisyahu.
We are officially out of summer and have entered the fall season! Yay to all the people like me who love this deliciously chilly weather. A popular drink for the fall to get everyone in the crisp and sweater kind of mood is hard cider, and one company that has a great variety available at your disposal is Angry Orchard!
Angry Orchard has unveiled its specialty Cider House Collection of small batch artisanal hard ciders, available now through the holiday season. A delicious alternative to Champagne during your celebrations, The Muse is inspired by sparking wine, bright and sweet. Festive flavors of vanilla and clove come through when sipping the cider, as well… Strawman uses a blend of different apple juices (from nine different apples, in fact), which have been aged in oak.
Hard cider was once America’s top drink, a favorite of Revolutionary War soldiers, not to mention Johnny Appleseed’s real reason for wanting to get all those trees planted… Last fall, Angry Orchard opened its Innovation Cider House on a historic orchard in Walden.
Walden Hollow is our first cider made exclusively with apple varieties from New York State, including apples from last year’s harvest at our 60-acre orchard in Walden, NY, and heirloom apples from other local orchards here in the Hudson Valley.
