1. Fox Barrel - Hard Apple Cider. 6.0% alcohol They claim...
Using freshly pressed juice and a passion for quality,our ciders are refreshing and enjoyable, equally comfortable on the beach or at a dinner party.I had the 22oz variety and I agree. I claim...
Sweet dang. That is delicious. I do feel refreshed. Thank you sir, may I have another. I'd even drink it if I didn't have celiac disease. It is kind of them to have a large "Gluten Free" under the nutrition facts. It is a tad pricey.
2a. Woodchuck Draft Cider - Amber. 5.0% alcohol. The original flavor. Amber/golden honey color and good aftertaste. Non-celiacs will approve of the flavor also.
2b. Woodchuck Draft Cider - 802. The name comes from the area code in Vermont that the cider is made. They "use caramelized sugar instead of white sugar to tone down the sweetness" (their words). I think it tasted pretty sweet (of the..."that sounds pretty sweet to me" variety). I would definitely have it again. Different than the amber, not better or worse.
4. Woodchuck Draft Cider - Spring Cider. 5.0% alcohol. Yellow label with spring meadow scene. Granny smith with a hint of honey. Grand improvement over plain Granny Smith. Mellow smooth tones in your mouth and a friendly aftertaste.
5. Woodchuck Draft Cider - Granny Smith. 5.0% alcohol. Makes your mouth pucker like you are drinking a sour apple jolly rancher or some fancy less than butch apple-tini. Apple taste is so strong it seems healthy. A unique way to get your daily serving of fruits. I am not too enamored with this.
7. (tie) Woodchuck Draft Cider - Fall Cider (limited release). 5.0% alcohol. Back before my celiac disease was diagnosed, I'd drink beer. This is the "Sierra Nevada Pale Ale" of ciders. It is not very pleasant initially, but given a chance repeatedly (over more than a few weeks), it began to grow on me a little. I think this has the potential to be a cult classic. You may love or hate it, but try it 6 times before you totally write it off. I still think it tastes like pine tree urine with a hint of apple. Has an autumnal label (sorry no pic).
7. (tie)Woodchuck Draft Cider - Raspberry. 4.0% alcohol. In an obscure reference to tombstone (val kilmer's doc holiday)...Raspberry is my huckleberry. I just did not really like it. Too much of the raspberry, would be fine as a dessert cider, but more than one is too many. I may be too harsh.
Woodchuck Draft Cider - Pear - 4.0% alcohol. I have not tried yet.
There are other ciders out there that I have not tried or forget...looks like I need to get out there and try some. Also, is it just me...or is cider a strange word. Look at it on its own. cider CIDER strange.
