COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A handcrafted treasure, the ultra-limited edition Private Reserve Belgian White, is crafted with a classic Belgian beer yeast. Cloudy, with a rich golden hue, it presents a delicate aroma and taste, with coriander and orange notes. It pares excellently with seafood fare, mixed greens or sharp cheeses. Join the select few who get an exclusive taste of the fruits of our labor.

(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.

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. Iím glad I didnít get a whole 6-pack but Iíll enjoy this one.

madvike (2696) - Middleton, Wisconsin, USA - MAY 25, 2012
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.

Butters (3747) - Richmond, Virginia, USA - MAY 23, 2012
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. Didnít look bottle conditioned. I do rather like the nose, itís 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 doesní t seem backsweetened. I donít think my palate is refined enough to quite pick up on the íbelgian yeastí i suppose. Still, I enjoyed this more than the average cider

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

dmschefke (568) - Macomb, Michigan, USA - MAY 6, 2012
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.

marcus (6438) - Sacramento, California, USA - MAY 5, 2012
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.
