New Beer (Cider) Blog Woodchuck Local Nectar Made With 100% Michigan Apples


In this beer (cider) blog, we are going to get into a special cider from Woodchuck Hard Cider.  It is Local Nectar.  If you read my earlier cider blog posts on their ciders, you know the history of this East Coast Cider Makers.  If you have not, please, read them to get to know Woodchuck.  Let us get into this Cider.

It has a clear off yellow color. It is almost a white yellow color like a Belgian White Ale color. The smell has a sweet hard cider apple notes.  The taste has a sweet to slight dry apple notes. The aftertaste is sweet apple tart finish. It is pretty drinkable cider. It is perfect throughout the summer months.

Here is a description from their website (www.woodchuck.com):

Core Ciders | Available Year Round | Woodchuck Hard Cider

Woodchuck® was born and raised in Vermont and our roots remain firmly entrenched in our home state. This cider was handcrafted using apples solely from our orchard partners in Vermont. It is light and crisp, semi-dry, and a pure reflection of the fantastic apple crop Vermont is known for.
*Local Nectar is also now available in Michigan.

Closing, I always love to see craft breweries and cider makers try something different.  I am kind of new to the cider world.  I am always trying to open my mind to other things asides beer.  Everyone knows that I love my craft beer.  I have to say between Woodchuck and Blake’s. They are making respect the cider more.  I respected them in the past and I was not really a fan of cider.  They say every ten years your taste buds change.  I believe my taste buds might be changing.  I like it.  I might buy it again but the price is higher for a normal dry cider.  It makes it special because it is made with Michigan apples to us that live in Michigan.  I recommend it.  Go get some!  Drink it!  Enjoy it!  Metal it!  \m/
