Today’s selection is a cider from Woodchuck that Val picked out. I love chamomile tea, but I haven’t had much experience with it in beer or cider. I guess there is a first time for everything?
Trivia: According to the brewery website, “You ever screw something up? Oops. We all have. Bring on the stress mixed anxiety. Our advice? Take a moment, breathe deep and sip a Woodchuck Oopsy Daisy. This crisp cider is infused with the actual chamomile flowers after fermentation imparting the calming essence of Chamomile with notes of honey throughout. Sit back, sip, relax, and let the calm wash that stress away.”
Random: I had taquitos for breakfast today. There is a food truck at this site that comes every morning and the food is amazing.
The cider poured with a half a finger of white head. It dissipated quickly and left no lacing on the glass, but left a small, white crown. The body was clear and orange with high carbonation. The nose had a lot of floral and tea notes, like an air freshener. There was some dry apple juice as well. The taste was incredibly floral as well, bordering on perfume-like. There was the same light, dry, apple note, but the dominant flavor was chamomile. The body was on the thin side with light carbonation. It had a quick finish with chamomile. A single bottle was $2, which came to $.17 per ounce. I didn’t like this cider at all and wished that there was a honey note to it. I appreciate that they were trying something different, but it just wasn’t successful.
