Bottle. Usually love pumpkin stuff. With this one. ...not so much. The color was gold. Aroma had the spice but not pumpkin pie. The taste is hard to define. It was spicy but not at all pumpkin. Apple was strong and then a kind of old sock in the background.

Though it has a pumpkin on it, this is kind of like a bottle of apple pie flavored soda pop. If that sounds like a novelty at best, that’s because it is. This is a yellow orange cider and naturally quite headless. It has sort of a phenolic clove character and maybe some cinnamon or something. I think I do get a vegetal pumpkin thing but that might be the label pulling tricks on my nose. It smells OK, kinda funny, kinda strange and the taste is in the same wheelhouse. It is nice and tart which would ordinarily be good but it sort of clashes w/ the spices here. It finishes w/ some lingering sweetness and spice. I don’t know if this one is worth trying even for the novelty factor. It is just not good, even for a soda-pop cider.

Apple and cinnamon nose. Hazy golden. Apple, rice, very light cinnamon and pumpkin flavor. Light body. Mulled cider at first glance, but the pumpkin presence is evident upon reflection. Tasty.

Rusty, clear gold. Big bubbles, thin carpeting foam. Tawny apple aroma -- sweet and sour. Sweet, a little tart, mild spices, slightly vinegraic. Medium body, earthy tones at the end, sweetness starts to stick. On tap, Whole Foods, Tallahassee.

Saled at eabls. Clear ligjt golden. Ok, I smell both appke and pumpkin. Somehow an after shave nose, too with nutmeg. Appkes are tasted and they are sweet apples. Yellow ones? Some spice. No pumpkin is tasted yet. A decent mass market kind of cider.
