Angry Orchard Knotty Pear is joining the new “Orchard’s Edge” cider series.
Angry Orchard Knotty Pear is a blend of domestic culinary pears, including Bartlett, Doyenne de Comice, Bosc, and D’Anjou, plus U.S. grown apples.
The cider leads with ripe apple, baked pear aromas and spicy, herbal hints from the cardamom. The pears also give the cider a subtle spiced essence along with notes of citrus and mint. Aged on American oak, this cider has a pleasant, dry finish.
The Orchard’s Edge Series will feature more complex ciders, aimed at the advancing tastebuds of fans of the category. Each of the ciders are aged in American oak, and will include non-apple fruits like oranges and pears.
Angry Orchard Knotty Pear is a year-round release.
