Tap. Light golden yellow pour with no head. Syrup, chewing gum, apple. Nice aroma. Like a lighter dry dessert wine. Body is lighter than expected. Overall nice but wanted more apple

I was not expecting a breakfast cider, but that’s what I got. Pours very light in color. Aroma is fresh maple syrup, honey, pancakes. Taste is maple, brown sugar, honey, with some crisp apple tart to complement. One is enough, but this would make for an interesting pairing with pancakes.

Wow this was a strange one. Poured a hazy darker yellow with a white head. Aroma was of caramel, maple, and faint apples. Flavor was the same but worse, big maple extract, light apple and caramel. Just weird and overly sweet.

12 oz. bottle. Pours a clear, light, yellow-green color, with a fairly large, bubbly, white head. Red delicious is dominant, with some notes of vanilla, and butter toffee. Very sweet, with a surprisingly acidic, dry finish. Light body, bubbly, acidic, and crisp. Overall, this is a nice, relatively complex cider.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. Sweet nose out of the bottle is of apple with an at first overpowering musk of maple syrup, I mean ripe for the pancakes, but that lessens with time. Pours very pale clear yellow with light carbonation and a blink-and-you’ll-miss-it off-white head. Taste is sweet and sticky, the maple syrup overtones are again strong, and the stickiness helps the profile match, but there’s also some caramelizing brown sugar and memories of cinnamon -- this would have been a much better choice for an autumn seasonal! The apples are fresh and the body is clean, tart light-medium body with no bitterness but a modest tendency toward the dry. This is surely my favorite from Woodchuck.

3.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle. Pours a white wine color, with a typical sweet cider aroma of apples, and a significant background of maple syrup. Flavor matches the aroma well, with a semi-sweet cider taste and a solid presence of maple syrup. Pretty substantial on the palate, with a nice lingering finish. You have to be ok with sweeter ciders, which I am. I would come back to this again for sure.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 14/20
Clear straw with a breakfasty note of toast crust, gentle maple, vanilla, and clean ripe apple. Taste has a bit of apple on the start, crisp and yellowish, but it quickly melds into a French toast flavor mixture of eggy toast, cinnamon-maple, sweet toast crust, and a bit of canned apple bits. Sweet apple-y finish with a touch of tartness.

2.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle. Very strong maple scent. Maple caramel apple flavor. A little too much maple and sugar to have more than one. A different cider but I have had much better.

Pale golden out of a bottle. Sweet and crisp with taste if apples, maple syrup and caramel. Surprisingly light. Not bad to down two on a summer night.

Sample at the Pint Room on 4/27/13. Pours clear blanc with a medium white head. Aroma of crisp apple with a touch of sweetness. Sweet apple flavor with a mild tartness before a crisp, sweet finish.
