COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Itís a small batch of Woodchuck goodness with a little extra zip as it takes everything great about hard cider and kicks it up a notch with a sweet, refreshing, raspberry finish.

355ml. Almost comically water-like appearance. Smell is mostly sweet raspberry with some chlorine and apple backing. Flavor is very tangy raspberry, sweet and apple juicy. Not a good cider.

This isnít as bad as I expected but it is still not good. For starters, it is nearly completely clear. It is a shade darker than water at best. I expected pink but this is even worse. It basically tastes and smells like some kind of raspberry soda pop but it is not quite so terribly sweet as actual soda and thereís a bit of tartness and apple skin astringent character to help balance. It goes down pretty easy and doesnít have any off flavors, I will give it that, but this has little appeal beyond sweetness and alcohol.

Short, 12oz bottle. Pours clear white. Color of pear meat. Odd, I expected it to be bright red/pink. Smells of medicine. Strong raspberry extract aroma. Sweet flavor, crisp apple, and raspberry extract. Finishes with a simple apple flavor. (4316)

Bottle to half-pint glass (shared with the Mrs.). Looks decent; a transparent light gold with thin white lacing that quickly dissipates entirely. The nose is a nice balance of raspberry and soft apple sweetness. Tastes like it smells with a bit of a tart, spritzy mouthfeel. A little artificial tasting (which is why I dinged it slightly overall), but it exceeded my expectations.

Bulk_Carrier (2227) - Juneau, Alaska, USA - AUG 25, 2014
Reviewed from notes. This was poured into a pint glass. The appearance was a hazy golden yellow color with a decent transparency about it to allow a light carbonation to be seen rising. There was no head. The smell had a blend of sweet and tart raspberries with apples, not bad at all. The taste was basically the same and giving a slight sour edge to it. On the palate, it sits about a light on the body with a fairly harsh edge to it. Actually, this one gets a little vinous and sour. Overall, not really digging this one. Itís got an okay smell but the taste and palate fall off a bit for me.

Bottle at a work event. From notes. Sweet and tart apples, with a nice raspberry kool-aid kick. Not too shabby.

A little weak on flavor. You can taste the raspberry, and you can definatley smell it, which may be why you expect a strong flavor from it. Its also a little stronger than the other woodchucks ive tried (pear and crisp) which raises the rating on this a little.

Kind of a weak flavor in my opinion. Nothing too special. Id rather buy the tradition style as opposed to this.

It does taste like raspberry. Ill give it that. Pours clear like water with a reisling tint. Hardly any bubbles and no head... take note. The raspberry flavor is decent because its not too sweet. I canít wait for the admins to delete this rating.

12oz bottle. Who hasnít had these? Golden pour. Sweet apple aroma with artificial sweet raspberry. Sweet apple juice flavor with a solid hit of fake raspberry flavoring. Super sweet, can be a panty dropper for the youngins.
