COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Woodchuck Draft Cider® Oak Aged is a perfect culmination of Premium French and Traditional American Oak, giving the cider great complexity and broad characteristics that neither style could produce on its own. Handcrafted using a centuries old technique, this cider has tremendous depth; offering a unique taste and special aroma not found in any other American hard cider. Starting with an attractive oak taste and finishing with a touch of vanilla, Woodchuck Oak Aged pairs effortlessly with holiday dishes.

Arayaga2 (1796) - portland, Oregon, USA - DEC 11, 2008
Headless and clear - coppery in color. Aroma is only a little cider, with a weird decaying banana undertone, with slight sourness.Very sweet with nice oaky vanilla notes up front. Not bad, but too sweet for regular drinking. $2/12oz

dpjuart (1068) - Indiana, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 9, 2008
Bottle shared by Naka. Pours apple juice orange/yellow with little head and some effervescence. Nose of apples, apple cider vinegar and baby diaper. Apple juice sweetness with slight oak and sugary finish. Doesnt balance well with the sweetness. Dry it out and repeat. Will be tasty then.

Light apple aroma. Clear dark golden color with a small and quickly fading white head. Initially apple taste with a slight bitterness in the middle and a sweet finish. Mild amount of wood taste in the end.

scraff (2121) - Baltimore, Maryland, USA - DEC 6, 2008
Bottle - Perfect Pour. Clear dark gold, thin white head. Soft granny smith apple nose rides a touch of caramel oak. Semi-sweet dried apple flavor balances on hints of vanilla wood. Light bodied,soft carbonation, apple oak finish. Nicely done. Quite drinkable to say the least...

Ibrew2or3 (6985) - Tempe, Arizona, USA - DEC 3, 2008
Courtesy of fishingnet. Pours gold with thin white head that vanished pretty quickly. The aroma is of apples, booze and vanilla. The taste is both smooth and refreshing bringing up notes of apples, smooth mild oak wood notes and vanilla. It ends dry and with a thin body.

hopscotch (9214) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - DEC 1, 2008
Bottle… Clear amber cider with a small, fizzy, quickly dissipating head. Woodsy, apply nose - suggestions of sour mash and apple butter. Medium-bodied with fizzy carbonation. Sweet and woodsy with just a whisper of sour mash. Basically, a middle-of-the-road cider with fizz. Lengthy, sweet, mildly bourbony finish that dries out a touch in the end.

afterglow (1047) - Florida, USA - NOV 30, 2008
Bottle. Pours a clear golden with no head. Aroma of oak and tart apples. Taste is sweet apples and a touch of oak with a tart apple finish. Medium mouthfeel with a mild to moderate amount of acidity. Good.

vyvvy (4025) - Florissant, Missouri, USA - NOV 27, 2008
Pours clear copper with a small patchy white head. The aroma has the typical apple, but there is a dryness from the oak balancing the sweetness with just a hint of tartness. Medium / light body that is silky with only a bit of carbonation. The taste has semi-sweet apple, bits of oak and a lushness to the flavor. The finish is fairly dry and oaky. This is quite enjoyable for a mass produced cider.

Naka (707) - Indiana, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 21, 2008
Pours a clear relatively thin looking pale amber color with a little bubbling, but no real head. A sweet sort of vinegary apple cider aroma with just a hint of oak thrown in there for good measure. Hmmm... very very sweet. Pretty much like regular Woodchuck... aged in oak... which is pretty much what this is. Apples and oak chips with a little bit of a chardonnay quality. If they let this dry out a little bit, I think I would really enjoy it. Right now, the 1 bottle split 3 ways is plenty.
