The cider makers at Boston Beer Co.'s Angry Orchard have crafted a new fall and winter seasonal cider, Angry Orchard Cinnful Apple.
Angry Orchard Cinnful Apple imparts a sweet, slightly tart apple flavor, balanced with the aroma of cinnamon spice, the company says. This seasonal cider is designed to be refreshing and smooth yet warming and complement the colder months ahead.
According to the company, Cinnful Apple was born of many years of experimentation. The cider makers at Angry Orchard have experimented with apple varieties from Europe, looking for the best fit for each cider. Cider recipes within its Core Collection and Cider House Collection blend apples from European orchards—where apples ideal for cider have been cultivated for centuries or bred unique to cider making.
Cinnful Apple, a limited seasonal release, is Angry Orchard’s first cider made with American culinary apples. Certain regions within the United States, such as the Pacific Northwest and foothills of the Northeast, share characteristics with the apple growing regions of France and Italy in their rich soil and ample sunshine. The cider makers at Angry Orchard found that the sweet, juicy profile of apples from Washington state complemented the spicy heat of cinnamon, to create a balanced flavor profile for Cinnful Apple. The offering is has an ABV of 5 percent and is available in 6-packs for a suggested retail price of $7.99 to $9.99. It's also available in variety 12-packs with three other Angry Orchard styles, Crisp Apple, Traditional Dry and Apple Ginger, for a suggested retail price of $14.99 to $17.99.
