Woodchuck Hard Cider – Celler Series – Smoked Apple – 5 out of 7

Woodchuck Hard Cider Smoked AppleWoodchuck Hard Cider – Celler Series – Smoked Apple Purchased at The Hobbit Cafe in Houston TX Richmond Ave. Love that place.

I’m not really a cider guy, I’m a smoke guy. So, it didn’t matter if this was a good cider or not, and how would I know anyway? The fact of the matter is that this is smoked, and I drank it. Speaking of facts, as I transcribe these hand written notes, it appears to be a fact that this cider beer was not the first one I had that night. The following is the original review, verbatim:

Overall Happiness : 5 of 7, one point deduction for not being beer. Sausage, maybe not sausage, but the crispy, blackened, burnt edges of sausage. Beautiful autumn red/brown 3 4 of 7. One of my favorite “beers” drinks is a snakebite, where I’ve had a different kind in almost every place I’ve gotten one. Some with Harp, some Guinness, some with Grenadine, casis liquor, some not. 

Campfire? 5 of 7

Nose? 2 of 7

My wife said “this is disgusting.”
