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.

Mildly tart aroma offers notes of green apples and lemons. Clear brown body. Apple flavour is quite sweet up front with some tart citrus in the back end but wood aging is unfortunately not apparent. Light body is fairly simple. Sampled on the PA trip 2005.

Copper color. Very sweet. Has a vinagar taste. I am not really a cider guy but its not bad. I couldn’t drink a lot of these but one every now and then is okay.

UPDATED: DEC 17, 2004 Before I started with beer, there was only cider. How did I not rate all the woodchuck. This is nowhere near the best cider out there, but its drinkable. Perhaps too sweet though.

muzzlehatch (4424) - Burlington, Vermont, USA - JUL 2, 2004
12 oz bottle. Dark amber, looks like unfiltered juice or dark cream soda, you know the kind with caramel color. Fresh juicy flavor, but a bit cheap-tasting, sweet and simple, with a hint of citrusy tang in the finish, decent body. Well above average for a commercial cider, though I’m not really missing this now-retired alcoholic soda. Thanks so much to Flipbrewer for his cross-country trade of this rarity back to its home state!

A truly unique cider. You can taste the oak and vanilla. Dark colour, complex flavour.

CapFlu (4482) - Victoria, British Columbia, CANADA - MAR 17, 2004
UPDATED: APR 19, 2004 (12oz bottle) I cannot find this on the Woodchuck website so I am guessing that they no longer make this? Pours the darkest cider I've every laid my eyes on - a beautiful bronze. Every so slight carbonation. Nose is of a port mixed with apples; its rather euphoric. The flavour does consist of a red wine tang. Slight cheap, flat cola finish. Very good and complex of the ciders I'm sampled...

I did not taste the vanilla at all when I had this. Very clean and crisp, very sweet.
