This interesting style blend between a Belgian Wit and a hard cider pours a cloudy orange color. Carbonation is moderate, but the head is thin and short-lived. The prominent aroma is Belgian-style spice, with coriander in the forefront. Citrus fruit and apple aromas linger in the background. The flavor is, as expected, somewhat unique. The taste is slightly tart, reminiscent of sour apple, with orange and grape notes as well. The spices in the nose carry over to the flavor; coriander and white pepper are notable. The finish is dry with a lingering yeast funk and fruit blend.
This new release from Woodchuck Cidery blurs the line between beer and cider. And it does so in a winning fashion. Whether you are a fan of ciders, or Belgian beers, or both, seek this out and give it a try. I don't think you'll be disappointed.
