3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Poured from a 750 ml bottle into a Spiegelau tulip. I really want to be able to appreciate cider....
A: I get straight sweet, green apples.
A: Clear gold pour with a bubbly and thin white head.
T: The nose, dead on.
P: Medium bodied with almost no carbonation.
O: Ciders scare me. They are so sweet and delicious that I feel like I could drink a million of them, but at 7%, that is probably a bad idea.

3.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
One whiff and you are in love: the mustiness of stored apples, made subtly sweet by their numbers. This is the very essence of fall. I consider this to be another example of a cider somewhere in between sweet and dry, perhaps quite similar to Crispin Honey Crisp. A delicious cider that leaves one wanting more.

3.8 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Clean solid profile with clear golden liquid white foam. Just off dry. lots of apple aroma. Not much in the way of tannic or bacterial complexity. No discernible barrel contributions. Very drinkable.

3.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle. Clear, white wine color, soft carbonation and a very subtle apple aroma. Flavor is sweet but not overly so, with a background of tart apples, and hints of peaches and lemons. Leans sweet, but I like it, and it has a decent amount of complexity to it. Finishes with a balance of both sweet and tart apples.

3.8 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Nice and crisp. Not overtly sweet. Serious grow up taste, not like an apple wine cooler. Weird initial aroma but don’t let that distract you the taste is amazing. Light apple flavor with a slight sweetness. Serious beverage. They recommend drinking in a schooner with cheese or pork.

1.1 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 3/20
This was probably the worst Woodchuck product I have ever had. Watery pale amber pour. Aromas of watery apple wine. Flavor is much the same with absolutely no carbonation to speak of. Weak, boring, and bland. This was very disappointing.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
6/1/13. 750mL bottle from Grassroots Natural Market. Golden amber pour with a small off-white head. Sweet apples and a touch of musty yeastiness in the aroma and flavor. I don’t know why I was expecting more out of this... fancy labeling, bottling, and a promise to dig up their roots... still disappointing.

2.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
It poured out much clearer than I expected. Some lacing around the glass, but no head. Aroma of apples and dough. Sugary sweet initial flavor with a sour finish. Tastes most similar to a granny smith apple, but not nearly as sour. It’s also a bit watery with a noticeable alcohol flavor. Thin palate and not very carbonated. I think I prefer standard woodchuck over this select cider.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle poured a very light white wine color with a light bit of sediment floating around. Aroma has green apples, sweet pear, light farmhouse, and light sulfur. Mouth feel is light and crisp and the carbonation is medium low. Flavor has lots of apple but it is watery, white grape skins, pear sweetness, light yeasty dust, and a finish that tries to dry out. Far better than the regular bottled stuff!
