Angry Orchard Walden Hollow is the latest big bottle “Cider House Series” release. A new hard cider that features all New York state apples.
When you are brewing a cider, apples are everything. New York is known for their apple crop, prompting a release focusing on a few of the state’s popular varieties.
Three apples make up Angry Orchard Walden Hollow – Golden Russett, Newtown Pippin, and Northern Spy. Apparently, the Northern Spy apple is used frequently in brandy production.
What you’ll taste in this hard cider… a more tart and dry cider then some of the mainstream sweet ciders that you will find. You’ll find Walden Hollow be a little more musty, with a touch farmhouse notes found in Brettanomyces heavy wild ales. Love ciders and a nice buzz? Hollow is bit higher than average – clocking in a 8% alcohol by volume.
Angry Orchard Walden Hollow is a 750 milliliter corked and caged bottle release, year-round – named for the Angry Orchard in Walden, New York.
