DRINK REVIEW

Trendy alcohol option underwhelms in taste

THIS NEW ANGRY ORCHARD CIDER FLAVOR IS inspired by rosé.

After seeing multiple Facebook news articles raving about Angry Orchard’s new Rosé Cider, I really wanted to try it. Five days later, I finally got the chance; a friend of mine purchased a variety pack of ciders, and lo and behold, the newly acclaimed Rosé was in the pack.

First off, the color of the beverage itself is a pretty pink, typical of a rosé drink. I took my first sip with excitement, only to be a tad underwhelmed. It reminds me of a champagne and not so much an Angry Orchard Cider. Made from a variety of apples, including rare ones from France, I was expecting an exotic apple taste, but failed to find it. It’s worth saying I tried it, as it has been hyped up tremendously, but I think I’ll stick with the classic crisp apple flavor next time.
