COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Woodchuck Spring Cider displays notes of maple syrup and brown sugar blended with fresh apple character. This handcrafted cider has a delicate sweetness that does not overpower the palate and makes it very easy to drink and is true to our tradition....independent to the core.

Reviewed from notes. This was poured into a wine glass. The appearance was a somewhat clear yellow color with a fast rising carbonation trying to fill a rapidly dieing bubbly head. There wasnít any lacing. The smell started off with some granny Smith apple and then there was some light sugary notes (Iím guessing maple syrup) but honestly it doesnít smell like maple syrup, itís just sugary. The taste was actually more balanced than I thought with a sly dose of bitter from the granny Smith apples and still a sweetness from the maple syrup. On the palate, this one sat about a light on the body with a decent sessionability about it. The carbonation does hit fairly hard but I think Iím just starting to understand that most ciders are meant to be like this. Overall, well hot damn, a balanced cider? One I could possibly do again? Well, how about that. Iím thinking the next time I get this, Iíll put it with some food just to see how it does.

Draft at SB. Pours a clear pale gold with a fizzy white head that fizzes away pretty much right away. Sticky sweet white sugar nose, definitely smells back-sweetened. Fizzy light body. Some green apple notes there, smells pretty synthetic, with that white sugar note again from the maple flavoring. Cloying synthetic finish.

Wasnít expecting much out of this at all, but its pretty good! Not really something to drink lots of with it having maple syrup and brown sugar and all, but if your able to get a six-pack of different ciders/beers i recommend snagging this one.

Weak cider flavor overpowered by maple syrup/ fake sweet brown sugar. Very dissapointing.

Bottle- This cider was much too sweet for me. The over powering maple flavor made it seem as if I was drinking a pancake. I actually split a bottle with my wife and the 8oz that I drank was almost to much for me. I love Woodchuck, but I will not be getting the Spring Cider again.

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 thatís 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.

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-youíll-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 thereís 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.
