Woodchuck Private Reserve Belgian White hard cider is available and in stores now. Here are five reasons why this should excite you.
1. A cider all can enjoy
Looking to convert a friend into a fan of hard cider? Slide one of these down the bar. Woodchuck Belgian White is styled after a Belgian Wit or Wheat beer, with a rich golden hue, and notes of orange and coriander throughout. It’s fermented with a Belgian brewer yeast, which offers a bite of spice that balances perfectly against the smooth character of the apple. Just delicious.
Don’t believe us? Check out what the man behind the cider, John Matson, had to say about it in his Cidermaker’s Notebook.
Woodchuck Hard Cider Private Reserve Belgian White is one of my personal favorites in our family of cider. My love of thirst quenching summer wit and wheat craft beer, inspired me to experiment in bringing the style to hard cider. I explored these styles as well as a few others including hefeweizen. It gave me the opportunity to work with various yeast strains and draw from my experience as a beer brewer. I’m excited to share how we made the cider!
