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.

Bottle. Poured clear amber color with a minimal white head that diminished slowly with little lacing. Moderate aroma of tart green apple and vanilla wood. Medium body with a dry texture and soft carbonation. Medium sweet apple flavor with a medium vanilla sweet apple finish of moderate duration. My expectations were met.

Reviewed from notes. I poured this into a pint glass and a wine glass. The appearance was actually the same in both: yellow to hazy orange color with a one finger white bubbly head that died pretty quickly. There wasn’t any lacing. The smell had some sweet and tart apple notes, and honestly, there’s a decent oakiness in there as well. I even got a light vanilla in there. The taste took those previously mentioned flavors and gave it the sweet and the tart and a light woodiness. On the palate, well, the harshness is there, but I expected that, still it seemed as it warmed, the harshness dissipated a bit and became a bit softer. Overall, hey, number two cider from Woodchuck I could do again.

Of the apple flavored soda pop ciders I’ve tried this is certainly one of the better ones. It has a little bit more to it than just sweet and tart apple notes. Specifically, it has a great deal of oak character. It pours slightly darker than apple juice in the glass w/ no head. It nose is sweet apple cider w/ a hint of spices. The oak character begins to take over once you taste it. It is sweet and apply to be sure but there it is punctiated by a bit woodiness and a ton of vanilla. The flavor combination works well and while it is perhaps not the most subtle use of oak, it does at least add something to seperate this out from a million other things in the same vein.

Bottle at home. Aroma of tart apples and faint whiskey oaky notes. The flavor is sweet - tart with ample oak and vanilla. Finishes tart and perfumey. Undercarbonated.
