Bottle. Cloudy light orange color with no head. Apple aroma with slight spice notes. Very light carbonation which makes this quite smooth. Balanced good cider taste.

Delicious. Smells a bit sour, a bit bready. Taste is sour apples, with a lot of yeasty, breadiness. Semi-dry. Really nice. Recommended.

This is kind of interesting and not entirely terrible. I am not sure if they used artificial flavors or actual corriander and citrus zest of what but the tartness of the apples w/ the citrus smell of the nose makes this stuff taste exactly like Sweet Tarts--well, sweet tarts w/ a little apple to them. So, like all Woodchuck, this tastes quite a lot like drinking candy but at least this is a definite and distinct twist on that formula. Oddly, my bottle of this stuff is kind of flat whereas these ciders are normally carbonated to the gills. I am not sure if that is a mistake or what but it does make this go down just a little bit smoother. This definitely gets a bit heavy and sweet as you work your way through the glass but I could drink like three of these and not die so I guess that isnít the end of the world.

I was so excited to try this, but immediately regretted my entire life after my first sip. This tastes EXACTLY like a condom smells. Let me type that again. IT TASTES EXACTLY LIKE A CONDOM SMELLS. Yes, Iím being completely serious. Yuck.

This is the most beer like cider iíve had. Aroma is very yeasty and doughy. Itís a fairly standard golden yellow with a surprisingly thick head for a cider. Taste is slightly yeast, transitioning into sweet apple, giving a flavor reminiscent of an apple fritter, almost. Body is heavier than most ciders thank to the yeastyness, but it drinks pretty smooth so itís not too bad. Overall itís good, but it doesnít warrant the 12 dollars for a six pack.

"Pretty unique spice profile for a cider, and a touch more complexity than one is accustomed too as well. Not a favorite - while I liked it, nothing wowed me - but a solid entry nonetheless."

Smell is apple and light belgian yeast esters. Kind of play dough and bubble gum like. Taste is apples and mixed fruit, slightly tart, a bit sweet, and some esters. Medium body, medium carbonation. Pretty good.

Surprise bottle from Wegmanís. Pours turbid straw with no head. Looks like apple juice. Nose is apples, honey, molasses. Tastes of apple, not sweet with some tartness, mild hney, earthy notes, white peppery spice, and yeasty malt. Decent.
