As the fall comes to a close and the air becomes colder and colder the winter beer styles start to flood into M&R (the liquor store where I work). However the brew I tried today wasn’t a brew, but a hard cider from the wonderful people at Woodchuck. This past summer I discovered their summer cider, which was very tasty and now I have discovered their winter cider.
Woodchuck’s winter cider gives the combination of both french and american oak. The winter cider is aged in oak to give it a spectacular taste. Pours with an amber color and gives off a sweet apple aroma that geared me up. The flavor is of a fresh tart apple that leaves your mouth-watering for more. The smoke flavor is subtle and found on the finish. The oak taste does tend to linger for a few minutes in your mouth, but nothing to cry about. I was expecting to taste a lot of oak with a hint of apple, but it was the other way around making this a nice drink. Check this one out for sure if you like a good hard cider.
