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.

Dark brass colored body with a thin white colored head. The aroma is largely cheap apple juice with some woody character. The taste has some apple cores and wood. There is also a taste like eating raw leaves. The finish is what one gets after eating raw sugar. That same type of feeling in the mouth after drinking fresh pressed cider. Good, but a little too sweet.

This was a truly great cider. Pours a golden amber. Yeast and apples on the nose. Flavor is of fresh apples with a nice dry woody finish where the oak really shines through. Very drinkable. Awesome cider, very unique and definitely worth a try

Bottle from Capone’s. Pours golden straw with 1-finger off-white head. Nose is champagny yeast, mild oaky and earthy apples. Tastes dry, apply, with champagny yeasty and chardonnay notes and a subtle oaky quality.

Copper colored, with aroma of apples and some red wine. I do taste the oak barrel flavor somewhat, and I like this cider.

More going on in the flavor with this cider. Its deep flavor of apples, vanilla, and earthyness mix for a wonderful cider. I wish the finish lasted longer but its still good.

UPDATED: SEP 18, 2008 Apparently this is now called Woodchuck Draft Cider, Oak Aged. Pours amber/orange, with a small head. Aroma apples and vanilla. Flavor is apples, vanilla, and a bit of oak. Rather sweet, but has a some dryness at the end. Decent stuff.

Haven’t seen this around in years, but it was the best product by woodchuck. Once the pear cider came about this one was gone. It was a great cider, not too tart or too sweet with a wonderful vanilla flavor from the oak aging.

Anglofile (138) - Piti, GUAM - JAN 3, 2008
Tasted like apple cider with alcohol in it. I don’t consider this to be beer but it is nice to drink and goes well with chicken pot pie.

tiggmtl (4548) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - DEC 18, 2005
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.
