Beer Review #47: Woodchuck Pear Cider

13 Jun

Style: Cider

Menu description: Sweet, lightly carbonated.

ABV: 4%

Tasting notes: This has an extremely light flavor and a very light, crisp feel. You can taste the pear, but it’s faint. I can’t even say that this is terribly sweet. Compare it to Angry Orchard’s standard Apple Cider and you’d think the Woodchuck people are entirely unfamiliar with sugar. I actually don’t mind the lack of sugar or sweetness or even think it’s necessarily a bad thing, except for two problems. First, there’s almost no other flavor other than the hint of pear. If the pear was stronger, it would be fine. Second, the Woodchuck website claims that this is a very sweet cider and that has not been my experience any of the half dozen times I’ve tried it. All that said, it’s not really bad. It’s good for novice drinkers or anyone else who doesn’t want anything strong or heavy.

Rating: 3/5
