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.

I have a difficult time rating ciders. They all taste very similar to me. Plus, "hard" ciders are not really very "hard". 5% alcohol is the same as most beers. I’d love to see 10 or even 20% ciders. This has an average looking pour (for cider) yellow with almost no head. Smells like a Pop Tart. Tastes like a Pop Tart. Delightful apple and cinnamon flavor. This tastes good cold, room temperature, or warm. So far it’s the best cider I’ve ever had. But it’s wayyyyyyyyyyyyy over priced.

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

This is easily the best cider I’ve had to dat. It isn’t nearly as sweet as the majority of ciders. The flavor is a bit thicker and chewier but still great. This is first cider I would consider buying again.

Picked this up at DeReuze Imports this Christmas. This was a very nice additon to the Woodchuck line. It has a hint of vanilla and the huskiness of oak aging. Very good for a mass produced cider

12 oz. "Winter" aliased version. Typical cider look, but with a small lasting film of creamy bubbles. Nose of spicy-sweet apples drizzled with sugary vanilla icing. Flavor doesn’t show the sweetness, vanilla, or oak very much to my taste buds, but still a decent cider flavor with just a touch of tart and bitter pith. Seems a nice hint of oak shows up after a while in the long aftertaste. Light body has medium carbonation and is about as balanced as a cider can be.

As far as ciders go, Woodchuck is the best and this is their most satisfying. Excelent flavor w/ a pleasant aftertaste. Excellent choice for a hot summer barbeque.

This is a great tasting ’beer’. A 6 pack of this goes down quick and effective. I wish it were cheaper!

A pretty good sweet cider. Couldn’t find the hint of vanilla or oak barrel taste its supposed to have, but worth a try. A little on the sweet side and far from the dry side.

’’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’’

Bottle from Cavie. Very light aroma with a hint of sour apple. The taste was rather strong, almost bitter. It was very carbonated, almost like a sparkling cider.
