In this summer cider blog, we are going to sample Woodchuck Summer Cider. If you read my earlier blog posts on Woodchuck’s ciders, you know the history of this Cider Legend. If you have not, please, read them to get to know Woodchuck. Let us get into this Hard Cider.
It has a clear yellow to light golden color without a head on this cider. The aroma has hint of blueberry and apple notes. The taste has blueberry notes with some apple notes. The aftertaste has blueberry finish that hangs around for a bit. It is extremely drinkable cider.
Here is a description from the bottle:
Summer Cider is a the perfect refreshment on a warm, summer’s day. Exhibiting a slight tartness, this cider begins with a full robust flavor followed by a rich taste reminiscent of New England blueberries. All crafted in Woodchuck tradition… Indepented to the core.

In the end, as many of you know, I have been slowly getting into ciders. The huge growth of ciders is making me open my eyes to these beverages. Ciders are growing faster than Craft Beers. I love the blueberry notes, which is not strong, with the apple hard cider in it. The tartness is what makes this cider along with the blueberries. It is extremely easy to drink while being refreshing. I highly recommend this cider. Go get some! Drink it! Enjoy it! Metal it! \m/
