So, why am I reviewing a Cider? We're here because Woodchuck Cidery, apparently that's the technical term for where Cider is made, put up a badge on Untappd. Last year they had this distinctive squirrel badge, which had clearly stuck in my mind. While I was in Sydney I was buying beer and Lizzie was browsing and came up with a 6-pack of this. I then saw there was a badge for this year, and here we are...
Now normally I base my appearance on what the style should look that. I'm not particularly well versed in what craft ciders should look like, obviously I know what a Magner's or 5 Seeds looks like but that would be like comparing Guinness to what Heineken looks like. With this in mind, it pours a very clear light yellow colour. There was initially a white bubbly head, as you can just aboutmake out in the picture, but it had almost no retention and left no sign of ever being there.
The taste is similar with sweetish apples dominating the flavour. It's lightly acidic which provides a nice tartness to the cider. It tastes like the very expensive super-market apple juices, with some carbonation and a bit of alcohol. I quite like it even though I can't quite explain the flavours I'm drinking.
I'm not sure I could drink this regularly, but once in a while this could hit the spot. It's got good apple flavour without being too sweet. The bit of tartness is what really makes this cider. I clearly have no idea what I'm talking about when it comes to cider though, so for now I'm going to stick to reviewing beers. Hopefully I'll get something up for you all soon.
Remember it's always Beer O'Clock somewhere in the world!
