Woodchuck Spring Cider: delicate sweetness with a hint of smoke
I’m not a big fan of hard cider because it is usually too sweet. If I wanted an alcoholic juice I would just use apple juice as a mixer. That being said, I’m very impressed with a recent addition to our beer case. Imagine the taste and aroma of fresh maple syrup and brown sugar...now think of a clean and crisp apple cider. Woodchuck Spring, their aptly named spring seasonal, will make you think you're sitting in a warm sugarhouse in the Vermont countryside. This handcrafted cider has a delicate sweetness that does not overpower the palate, a smokiness that is reminiscent of yummy bacon (side note, everything should taste a little of bacon), and an effervescence that makes it very easy to drink, even for breakfast. And at $8.99 a six-pack, it is a steal. Enjoy!
