Woodchuck June & Juice has joined the cider maker’s Out on a Limb Series. Each cider in the series is a one-off experiment, featuring everything from hops to hot peppers.
Woodchuck June & Juice welcomes the hot weather with a cider featuring juniper berries. If you have had gin or a gin cocktail before, you’ve tasted juniper. The berries have a piney flavor and hints of citrus.
The Cider Makers filled our custom extraction tank with juniper berries, rose petals, and orange peels, yielding a fresh botanical aroma. June & Juice has a refreshing semi-sweet apple taste with notes of juniper and citrus, a perfect alternative to your Friday night G&T!
Woodchuck June & Juice is a 12 ounce bottle offering, for a limited time. The Out on a Limb Series 6 pack holder is the same all year, so check the next of the bottle
Woodchuck Lazy Hazy Crazy Lemon joins the cidery’s Out on a Limb Series this week. The series is a rotating six pack of one-off and experimental ciders.
Woodchuck Lazy Hazy Crazy Lemon is actually a hybrid of a hard cider and a shandy. Woodchuck uses McIntosh, Empire, and Cortland apples infused with fresh lemon juice and lemongrass.
The light body, combined with hints of lemongrass and citrus aroma, make this semi-dry cider a perfectly refreshing summer beverage.
Woodchuck Lazy Hazy Crazy Lemon is available in 12oz bottles. While the label changes, the six pack does not.
Woodchuck Cheeky Cherry is the lastest release to join the cider’s Out on a Limb Series. Out on a Limb is a rotating six-pack that features some of Woodchuck’s most creative cider varieties. Cheeky Cherry features tart cherries, giving the cider a puckering finish.
Cheeky Cherry is created using a mix of culinary and bittersweet apples. Michigan Tart Cherries are added following fermentation to provide a deep red color and a tart, sweet finish.
The packaging for the Out on a Limb Series doesn’t change, but the bottle art does. Woodchuck Cheeky Cherry is available in 12oz bottles for a limited time.

Woodchuck Hard Cider (Middlebury, VT) is introducing a new rotating six pack, Out on a Limb.
The package art will remain the same through the year, but the liquid will change every couple of months. The first release is Woodchuck Chocolate Raspberry, a cider infused with cacao nibs and raspberries that offset the apple notes.
“As the leading craft cider in the country we take pride in pushing the boundaries of what is being done in the category and living ‘out on a limb’,” said Woodchuck Communications Manager, Nate Formalarie. “Truly unique ciders are crafted at Woodchuck’s cidery each day. All of these ciders are handcrafted with creative artistry. Out on a Limb represents those that we think the world is ready for.”
Woodchuck Out on a Limb six packs will have an estimated retail price of $10.99. Look for them to launch in October, 2014.
