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.

Pours dark gold, no head. Aroma of cinnamon and apples. Taste shows off the oak really well, way more noticeable than I thought it would, nice apple flavor not real bland as I expected but certainly no complexity.

12 oz bottle. Pours a clear old gold color with no head, just a ring of white bubbles. Aroma is apples. What a surprise? Things that might be there, but might just be my imagination: wood, cinnamon...The wood definitely comes through in the taste. The oak imparts a little vanilla. The carbonation is average, body medium to near-thin. This is definitely the best Woodchuck I’ve had. I tried rating the Summer one but they wouldn’t let me! Too alcopopish I guess...

Bottle. Smokey smell and vanilla. Taste is sweet and syrupy. Not bad. Was expecting it to taste like every other woodchuck

scooterbub (815) - Lander, Wyoming, USA - DEC 31, 2011
12 ounce bottle. Pours a nice deep golden with a very thin white head that fades quick. Taste is of tart apples, wood and vanilla. Apple and wood aroma. Has a nice light sweetness to it. The body is nice and full. The finish is tart and dry. Easy to drink, enjoyable and worth picking up again.

madvike (2671) - Middleton, Wisconsin, USA - DEC 31, 2011
Bottle - Pours brown amber, clear with a very thin off-white head. Mild sweet apples on the nose, with a touch of tartness and some mild baking spice. Taste is spiced cider, mild apple juice, and light cinnamon and nutmeg notes. Finishes with a crisp, tart twang that reminds me of champagne. Not very bold, and a bit boring.

Bottle; poured a clear amber gold with a whitish head. Aroma of apples, vanilla, and oak. Alot of vanilla in the flavor; some wine type notes. A mild apple undertone. Quite impressed.

Stampion (143) - Washington, Washington DC, USA - DEC 11, 2011
Tastes like winter without tasting like Christmas. Not too much oak with just a hint of vanilla at the end. A good overall cold weather cider.

12oz bottle from Pick’s poured into a shaker. Pours a clear dark gold with no head. Aroma is apple. Apple cider and I may smell some oak but it could just be wishful thinking. Taste is light sour. Mostly sour green apple with a good hint of vanilla. Light bodied with a sticky texture. Lively carbonation and a decently long, sour finish. Overall, not bad. Their barrel select is better but this probably has to be second best.

On draft at Coffee District. I walked in looking for a big stout but all of a sudden got winded and became really thirsty and ordered something thirst quenching. What could have been better! Great apple flavor and incredibly easy to drink.

Pours clear apple amber with almost no head. The aroma is lightly sweet and nice apple notes. The flavor starts out like sweet, pleasant apples, and then with the flick of a switch drops off and becomes dry instantly. It is uncanny, I’m sure the barrel aging had something to do with it.
