Short 12oz bottle, light blue label. Pours hazy orange color, very thin white head. Aroma of fine cheese and juice. Tart apple flavor, some flavor of apple skin.

A hazy light yellow pour with a white head. Great aroma of yeast, spice, tangerine and lots of tart apples. Flavor is sweet and yeasty, just enough tartness to balance. Nice spice. Damn good!

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
(bottle - 12 oz) Hazy white pour with a fizzy white head. Sweet apple aroma with a very light hint of sour coming up at the end. Not as sweet as other Woodchuck ciders with a nice little bit of sour near the end of it. Rather tasty.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
12oz bottle poured into a shaker. Pours a hazy gold with minimal head. Aroma of woody musty green apples with a little candied orange peel. Also a little plum skin aroma. Taste is light sweet and light sour. Belgian sugar, green apple and plum skin. Light bodied with a sticky texture. Flat carbonation and a long finish. Overall, not bad. I’m glad I didn’t get a whole 6-pack but I’ll enjoy this one.

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
