Cider Review: Woodchuck Hard Cider Private Reserve Pink

Woodchuck Hard Cider Private Reserve Pink and its bright pink packaging not only visually promote the battle against breast cancer, sales of the beverage also support a Vermont-based nonprofit. A $50,00 donation to Dragonheart’s Cancer Surviorshop NOW lends funding to programs to help cancer survivors live well after recovery.

It’s all a good cause, to be sure, but how does it taste? Private Reserve Pink has a delicate body and a balanced full apple flavor. At 5.5% ABV, it’s light, fizzy, and not too boozy, making it a perfect warm-weather bottle — think beach picnic or backyard BBQ.

Pink has a similar carbonation and mouthfeel as Woodchuck Crisp, but continues with a little something more. The grape skin extract gives the cider its a pink hue, but also adds a somewhat floral and perfumy nose, and underlying texture.

Private Reserve Pink is available nationwide. The bright pink six-pack may bring to mind a Zima-like marketing scheme or blatant bid for women customers, but it’s actually a commendable project. Never been easier to fight cancer and support your drinking habit at the same time.
