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.

Bottle from Muzzlehatch. Oh wait, he can’t get this in Vermont. Eh, It’s a toss-up as to who comes out better in the end. Pours a nice, slightly syrupy golden orange with a semi-lively body. Aroma is sugary white grape with hints of soft melon. Flavor is flat apple with woodchunks in the finish. Average mouthfeel for a slightly better-than-average cider.

Aurelius (4229) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - NOV 20, 2008
White grape juice aroma, with some rotten chemical/floral tones. Green bottle, twistoff. Clear, the color of tawny port. Sweet, very little apple astringency. Cooked apple and floral flavors. Pretty tasty, but disappointing as a hard cider. Glassy mouthfeel, only breaks effervescent at the very end. This would make a great poultry or pork infusion/marinade.
Earlier Rating: 9/9/2002 Total Score: 3
Acetic nose and flavor. Moderately sweet. Good non-lingering palate and mouthfeel. Dings on appearance for the green bottle and the twist-off.

blipp (6148) - Newark, New Jersey, USA - NOV 20, 2008
Bottle. Pours amber with a white head. Sweet apple aroma with a touch of a woody quality. The flavor is tart/sweet granny smith with a bit of woody depth. I’m not gonna lie, I laughed when I saw this on the shelf, but it’s actually quite good.

Courtesy of fishingnet. Once in a while, a good cider come across a tasting, bringing some freshness, away from the grains, etc. This one follows the growing trend of oak aging and it does it well. Aroma of subtle oak barrel , taste and aroma have lots of nice sugary apple with the nice addition of oak. Finish is dry and crisp. Good drinkable cider. It’s a cider, not much else to debate here.

Wow. It says oak aged. It has a syrupy sweet aroma with a lot of apple and sugar in it. The flavor is sweet, mellow yellow apple. The flavor gives way to the finish, which wears its heart on its sleeve and leaves the same apple-syrup and sugar.

The aroma is sweet with apples and some oak. The appearance is deep gold with an amber hue and no head. The flavor is like the aroma and quite good. The palate is thin but OK for the style. Overall it’s a good cider.

joet (2188) - Santa Rosa, California, USA - NOV 17, 2008
Simple cider with little character as evidenced in any tannic, mineral, or wood flavors or aromas. Clear color. Medium high effervescence. As McCartney said of his father, very clean.

Butters (3787) - Richmond, Virginia, USA - NOV 17, 2008
Sampled in a side-by-side with the 802. Clear applejuice pour with nearly no head. Nose is sweet and tart and slightly musty. Flavor had some vanilla and is fuller and has less of a sweet tart finish. Not as easy drinking as the 802. It kinda made me feel like vomiting, but not because of bad flavors or anything. Weird.

cheap (4105) - Beaver Valley, Beaver County, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 16, 2008
’’12 oz green stubby bottle with a twist off cap. Nice apply aroma, very attractive without being overwhelming. Looks like a pale lager. Yummy initial taste bud sensations. but I like ciders so becareful how you interpret this rating. Can’t really taste any oak aging in there. Comes on like any other good woodchuck cider, fun and delicious. Very like-able. Good tingly carbonation. Could easily drink a sixer of these in a session. Goes down way too easy. Lovely fermented bubbly drink. Finish is a tad dry and I like that, does not appear to fruity. Overall a good pleasant brew. s8L2F3T9O18’’
