    pretty nice cider, but DEFINITELY overrated as a 99/95 on this site. The oak comes through the bittersweet apple juuust wnough to notice. Nice fruity aroma and lasting finish.

    Nice suff poured a clear medium amber the oak came through in the aroma. The flavor was bolder than some other ciders which helped it hold up to food really well. It went well with cheddar and with almonds

    first to get in H-TON, thanks Richard, you were one of the cool ones, cheers!.. .. . Pours a dark tan colour .. pretty fine head, medium to big for an american cider .. . musky wet wood, oak, and apple juice in the nostrils .. . you fancy a crisp gecko? .. . Refreshing as it should be expected, some woodiness in the mouth, to go with the apple sweetness and the slight brass of the oak ... .i liked it, but honestly it makes you think to much, and in an american mass cider, maybe not the best choice, that or it was just not good enough .. . similiar to the 802 in the mouth, but seems a aftertaste compared valium clean life insect ??

    .. .. needs to be fuller and more oak, you know sell it in 22oz bomders with the abv bumped up to 10%, maybe throw it in a calvados cask???

    I grabbed a six pack of this seasonal delight. I was surprised. The oak aging had me anticipating a heavy smoky aroma with the hint of sweet apple. To the other end the aroma was apple with a hint of oak. The flavor is of a fresh tart apple that leaves your mouth watering for more. The smoke flavor is sublte and found on the backside. It is a delicate smoke flavor with a dominat forward apple. Nice drink.

    For my 200th review here, I wanted to make it something special. So when I saw the Woodchuck Oak Aged Draft Cider in the Beers of the World store (Rochester, NY) today, I decided to pick up a 6-pack. I was intrigued by the idea of a cider being aged in an oak barrel. Oak-aged seems to be a hot way of aging beer nowadays, but how would it relate to ciders?

    Poured into the glass, this cider is a little darker than the typical Woodchuck ciders. It is crystal clear, has a rich amber color to it, no head, but some amazingly large bubbles that float up to the top. I was shocked, but my nose picked right up on the oakieness in the aroma. It's almost like sniffing bourbon, except not as alcoholic or strong in aroma. This blended fabulously with the apple flavors.

    The taste picks right up where the aroma leaves off, where you get a pleasantly, lightly tart apple flavor on the front, but a hearty dose of the oak wood on the back end. So much so, the oak flavor lingers in your mouth for a good minute after you sip it. The carbonation level is just right and makes for a very smooth drink.

    Bottom line, I've been drinking Woodchuck products for many years dating back to my college years in Vermont. Just when you thought they served hard apple cider as many ways as possible, they come out with this one. Absolutely great!

    12 oz green stubby bottle with a twist off cap. Nice apply aroma, very attractive without being overwhelming. Looks like a pale lager. Yummy initial taste bud sensations. but I like ciders so becareful how you interpret this rating. Can't really taste any oak aging in there. Comes on like any other good woodchuck cider, fun and delicious. Very like-able. Good tingly carbonation. Could easily drink a sixer of these in a session. Goes down way too easy. Lovely fermented bubbly drink. Finish is a tad dry and I like that, does not appear to fruity. Overall a good pleasant brew. s8L2F3T9O18
