I recently bought this because the guy at the liquor wholesale store told me it was new and rather good....
Has anyone heard of it?
Tried it?
What do you think?

Angry Orchard is the cider side of Boston Beer Co./Sam Adams. This is their artisanal line of products (as opposed to their 6-packs), of which they have two varieties, both oak aged if I remember.

It was not bad and I think they produce another one in a very similar model but they were out of it at the liquor wholesale store then I went to

Good to know. I'm a Sam Adams guy. Didn't know Angry Orchard was them as well...

Angry Orchard Crisp, Angry Orchard Original Dry, and Angry Orchard Ginger are the ones I know and enjoy. I will have to give their Strawman a shot too.

Angry Orchard® Iceman (10.0% ABV; $14.99 per bottle)

· Inspired by the traditional ice ciders of Quebec, Angry Orchard Iceman combines crisp apples with notes of caramel and toffee for a cider that’s sweet but not syrupy or cloying. Aging the cider on oak adds a smooth, vanilla character.
· Iceman is medium-bodied, leaving a smooth finish with rich flavor and lingering sweetness on the palate.
· Pairing suggestion: This well-balanced cider pairs best with the sweet flavors in pork and enhances the tender, delicate flavors in foie gras. Its earthy finish compliments sharp cheeses while its caramel and toffee notes enhance sweet, savory and buttery desserts.


Angry Orchard® Strawman (10.0% ABV; $14.99 per bottle)

· Angry Orchard Strawman’s ripe apple, vanilla and honeysuckle flavors impart an earthy character complimented by a distinct aroma of ripe apples, wood, dark fruits and sweet citrus.
· Inspired by centuries-old farmhouse cider making techniques traditionally found along the English and French countryside, Strawman balances a distinct blend of culinary and bittersweet apples juices which are then aged on oak.
· Strawman’s wine-like characteristics leave a smooth, fruity and effervescent finish with lingering notes of wood and apple that are crisp off the palate, refreshing and flavorful.
· Pairing suggestion: Notes of caramel, toffee and vanilla give Angry Orchard Strawman a unique sweetness that matches up well to rich meats like pork and desserts like cheesecake. Its smooth, crisp taste also makes it an exceptional seafood pairing.

They sound very different, I'm bummed out that a wholesale place was out of the Iceman and only had the Strawman or I would've bought them both

I had the Iceman about a month ago and it was very good.
