Bottle. Pours a cloudy yellowish orange with medium white head, minimal lacing. Aroma obvious of apple, but undertones of vanilla, yeast, grass, cinnamon, and bubblegum. Flavor matches well and makes for a surprisingly well rounded and intense cider. Not overly sweet like most ciders and altogether one hell of a drink.

Straw color with a bright white head. Interesting scents of berries, candies, and blue cheese. Sweet flavors with the berries and light cheese culture in the background. Finish has some pear and apple peel flavors. The sweetness is still a bit too much. 3/11

I don’t know what makes it a Belgian White. It tastes like a normal cider. Decent balance between dry and sweet.

Pours hazy golden with no fizz. Smells sweet, apple, light fruity. Taste is sweet, fruity, little Belgian flavor. Light-bodied with a slick texture and fizzy mouth-carbonation, Woodchuck Private Reserve Belgian White finishes with a lingering sweetness.

bottle. Pours a slightly cloudy golden color with average carbonation. Standard aroma of fermented apple. Yeast flavor is pretty subtle here, flavor is mostly sweet apple up front with just a touch of orange peel. Light bodied and drinkable. Nothing amazing here, but worth trying.

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 isn’t 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, I’m being completely serious. Yuck.

This is the most beer like cider i’ve had. Aroma is very yeasty and doughy. It’s 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 it’s not too bad. Overall it’s good, but it doesn’t 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."

335ml btl. Wtf are these ratings? Sweet and blue moony with a sweet and shitty cider backing.
