3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle - Light amber with a thin bubbly ring of white head. Sour apple, light cinnamon, herbal notes, and a light yeastiness. Subdued and a bit odd. Taste is sweet--Smarties, with overripe apples and notes of cinnamon. A bit of syrupy apple juice on the finish, with a lingering sourness. Medium-bodied, with minimal carbonation. Not seeing a ton of difference between this and regular Woodchuck, other than a little more complexity and spicing. Okay.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Based on the description, I expected a cloudy pour, however, this came out quite a clear very pale near water color. No real head to speak of. Didn’t look bottle conditioned. I do rather like the nose, it’s similar to a pleasantly sweet clean apple, but with a very faint odor of farmy funk and lilacs. Quite nice. Flavor is good, hints of grapefruit, but mainly just a normal cider. I really like how it doesn’ t seem backsweetened. I don’t think my palate is refined enough to quite pick up on the ’belgian yeast’ i suppose. Still, I enjoyed this more than the average cider

Draft. Golden cloudy color. Tastye is sweet but not overly. I’m not a huge cider fan but this probably one of the best sweet ones I’ve had in a while. Decent

Bottle. Pours a cloudy yellowish orange with medium white head, minimal lacing. Aroma obvious of apple, but undertones of vanilla, yeast, grass, cinnamon, and bubblegum. Flavor matches well and makes for a surprisingly well rounded and intense cider. Not overly sweet like most ciders and altogether one hell of a drink.

Bottle from Total Wine, Sacramento. Pours murky amber with a thin off-white head and a golden delicious apple aroma. There is an apple and citrus flavor that is very subtle. A pleasant sipping cider.

3.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle from Total Wine in Sacramento, CA. Pours hazy amber with a transient bubbly/frothy white head. Aroma of cooked apples and light citrus. About med body. Flavor is very pleasant. Apple, wood, mild citrus. Finishes a bit less than dry. It’s even a little astringent. It drinks quite easily. One of the better Woodchucks IMHO.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
pale golden and slightly hazy. tiny white ring for a head but active carbonation.
aromas of odd spices on top...along with musty apple, bubble gum, white grape, some woodiness and sulfury yeast.
the flavor is the same....kinda alsatian white with the yeast and grape. apple and bubble gum in the aftertaste with a moderately tart finish.
medium body, quite acidic. interesting at least....6/3/6/3/14
