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.

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!

FROTHINGSLOSH (5095) - GREENSBURG, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 15, 2012
Sampled from a 12 oz brown bottle this cider poured a slightly cloudy yellow-tan color with a minimal foamy white head that left no lacing. The aroma was sweet, tart and tangy apple with a touch of must and a strong yeasty presence. The flavor was very tart and tangy apple with a strong yeasty presence and a berry undertone. The finish was very long tart apple and yeast. Medium body.

zach8270 (3585) - Henrietta, New York, USA - JUN 3, 2012
(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 (2907) - 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 (3860) - 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
