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.

12 ounce bottle. Pours a somewhat cloudy reddish gold with hardly a head. Aroma of apples and spice. Taste is apples, spice, and a touch of wood. Pretty good.

Decent winter cider. Smells funky but all cider does to me. A little earthy compared to normal cider. Not fruity. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

12oz bottle pours a clear yellow golden color with a fizzy white head that fades and leaves no lacing. Smells of apples and oak. Tastes of the same things in the smell with a hint of vanilla in the finish. Mouthfeel is watery ans creamy with decent carbonation and a dry finish. Great cider, I like the use of oak ageing. It made it more unique than most of the other ciders I’ve had. Would definitely this again.

UPDATED: NOV 3, 2013 Bottle. This is the Winter Cider...not sure why the name is wrong here. Mostly typical cider notes for this, but less sweet than many from this brewer. Nicely balanced. Only very subtle hints of barrel notes, but I suspect the barrel aging mellowed it. Overall, I like this, and think it’s one of their better ones, and now a favorite of mine. I will buy this again.

12oz bottle. Pours amber with spare white head. Smoky amber aroma. Touch of vanilla to go with the apple flavor. I enjoyed this.

Bottle pour during football season. Of the seasonals with this cider - this is my least favorite. Billed as Winter Hard Cider.
