Thought I'd try something outside the norm for me, so I spent the Holidays enjoying hard ciders and Apple ales.
I've had Woodchuck Hard Cider before, but this is the first time I've had their Winter seasonal.
In short, it has a great flavor and, like the regular brand, it is crisp but that being overly sweet.The mild 5% alcohol content does not contribute any bitterness or alcohol taste. It has a little more depth of flavor than their regular drink. The label says there is a hint of vanilla -- I am not sure I agree with that, but there's definitely a dry after taste that is pleasing.
As a light alternative to beer, I would recommend this any time.
My score: 7.5 out of 10
