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.

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!

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Tap at Iron Horse Taproom. Hazier, flattish pour. Nose is sweet orange and yellow pear. Taste is tangy, sour pear juice. Lots of green apple juice. Quite tart actually. Wayyy to sweet. Not bad- but super pear heavy. Sugary with sharp sour tanginess in the back end. Mildly refreshing. No cloying heaviness.
