Raspberry?[edit]

Brkmyr, where have you seen Woodchuck Raspberry? I've never heard of it, and the company website doesn't list it. - Jeffhos 06:26, 10 Nov 2004 (UTC)

Your edit to Woodchuck Draft Cider[edit]

Your edits to Woodchuck Draft Cider ([1] [2]) constitute vandalism. Please do not persist in these edits, or you may be blocked. Sarcasticidealist 05:14, 16 November 2007 (UTC)Reply[reply]

If this is a shared IP address, and you didn't make the edit, consider creating an account for yourself so you can avoid further irrelevant notices.
Well, the onus is on the editor wishing to see information included, so by all means start a discussion on the talk page as to why there should be a "False advertising" heading in the article. As for your most recent changes, I'm deleting them for now (which I'm entitled to do because they're unreferenced); please explain on the talk page why you think it is somehow notable that the product uses artificial colouring when the same is true of virtually any similar product.

I'm including it just for the heck of it. Go to the grocery store and read the ingredients label if you don't believe me. What other references could there be? 71.63.88.166 (talk) 01:43, 18 November 2007 (UTC)Reply[reply]
I think you misunderstand me. My complaint with it isn't that it was unreferenced (that was just the basis on which I was entitled to remove it without discussion). My complaint is that the information doesn't belong there. It fails WP:NPOV, and really isn't a notable fact about the cider in question.
If you disagree with me, feel free to say and explain your reasoning. If I haven't heard anything from you after a couple of days, I'll delete the material again (I'm leaving it for now as a show of good faith). If you do have some arguments for why it belongs, what say we make use of WP:THIRD to resolve this dispute? Sarcasticidealist (talk) 00:27, 19 November 2007 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Sarcasticidealist is right. In addition to WP:NPOV, statements posted in articles here also must be verifiable and can't be original research. Your claim that you saw this on a label qualifies as the latter. Although none of this touches on the matter of truth - it also turns out that the statement about artificial color is false - the coloring used is caramel, which is not an artificial coloring. The statement in question has been deleted - please don't foul your own nest by adding it back. Merenta (talk) 04:31, 19 November 2007 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Suggestions for changes to this article[edit]

As an employee of Woodchuck Hard Cider I would like to suggest some changes as there are more products available than those listed in the current article and some of the facts about the ciders can be expanded upon. As an employee I obviously can't make these changes myself, but I thought I'd share what I know and some articles verifying the information. Under Core Varieties: Woodchuck Crisp should be added. Articles verifying this: http://www.pitchengine.com/woodchuckcider/woodchuck-hard-cider-announces-new-core-product http://www.beerpulse.com/2011/11/woodchuck-crisp-gets-its-own-6-pack/

I would also suggest that in regards to Woodchuck Amber, it is available in 12 pack cans.

Articles verifying this: 12 pack cans: http://www.beerpulse.com/2012/04/woodchuck-amber-coming-to-cans/ http://beerstreetjournal.com/woodchuck-now-shipping-amber-cider-in-cans/


Under limited releases: Summer is made by adding blueberry juice to the cider. Article verifying this: http://ma.worldclassbeer.com/beerspy/product/woodchuck-limited-edition-summer-cider/7713/

Under Private Reserves: First off, The Oak Aged is not a private reserve. It was a limited release cider that was renamed "Winter." The Colonial was also never a Private Reserve. It was a core variety that was discontinued.

There are three Private reserves at this point that it could probably be a bulleted list. Aside from Pumpkin and Barrel Select, there is also now Woodchuck Hard Cider Private Reserve Belgian White. Articles with information on this product: http://www.ratebeer.com/beer/woodchuck-private-reserve-belgian-white/166975/ http://www.beerpulse.com/2012/02/woodchuck-belgian-white-joins-private-reserve-series/ http://www.brewbound.com/news/woodchuck-cider-announces-belgian-white-a-private-reserve-cider

In addition to the sections already in the article I would also suggest adding a section for Farmhouse Select

I tried to pull this information from places other than the website to back up the suggestions I've made.

Thanks for posting this here, Devin. I'm going to try to work up some changes to the article based on your information this afternoon. A fluffernutter is a sandwich! (talk) 16:52, 8 May 2012 (UTC)Reply[reply]
