Imagine what happens when you take a nuanced cider filled with tannins and acid; smoke it over apple wood – the same wood that produced the apples – which gives it a light sweetness. Infuse that smoked cider with the earthiness of pumpkin. The apple juice steps back, allowing the smoke to be your first experience, followed by the earthiness of the pumpkin and finishes with the acid of the cider.

Clear pour. Aroma of white grape, rotten pumpkin (could be from smoke). Tastes strong fresh, vegetables, pumpkin, smoke, perfumey apple, some sulfur. tastes like a non beverage, a whole scene instead. Needs some associated spice of some sort

Bottle. Cloudy golden pour, lightest aroma. Flavor is balanced, not sweet. Minor complexity. No smoke or pumpkin, so it is a miss as far as that goes. Not one I need to have again.

(bottle - 500 ml) Cloudy orange with almost no head. Smokey aroma with some sweet apples and light pumpkin pie spice under it. Flavor starts off with sweet apple juice, then immediately goes to smoke with a sour pumpkin and spice flavor underneath it, then more apple juice. Too many odd flavors in one mouthful.

Bottle from Capitol Beer in Sacramento, CA. Pours translucent gold with some white bubbles. Mild smoky aroma. Near med body. Flavor is fairly light smoke with some cider. Comes across as smoky/mildly earthy/a little tart/some sweetness. Smoke is lightly coating my mouth. Drinkable, but probably not for anyone except smoked beer fans.

Blairgus (2607) - California, USA - NOV 9, 2013
9 nov 2013, bottle light orange, hazy with floating sediment. Nose is pumpkin and unpasteurized apple cider. Thin body and mildly fizzy. Tastes very earthy, smoky notes are unappealing. It is pumpkin, not pumpkin pie spice. Has a smoked sausage flavor and finish. Not a fan. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Oh gawd! This was just horribleness in a glass. Awful, awful, awful! I couldn’t even imagine why this is made and who it is made for.

Yellow pour with a white head. The aroma has some sweet apple notes as well as a little bit of nutmeg and cinnamon. The flavor is quite a bit different. I get a lot of smoked notes as well as some pumpkin, light nutmeg and sweet apple. Fairly ashy tasting, with the smoke notes overpowering everything else. Not a good cider.

there are some things that sound great in theory, but end up terrible in execution. this is one of those things. i really wanted to like this, but smoke, pumpkin and cider to not a good combination make. couple possibly make a good bbq sauce out of it. but these 3 divergent flavors pull your tongue in weird directions that never meld. will never drink again.

Cloudy golden orange. I’ll tell you this it tastes a lot better after it warms up. there’s too much smoke involved in it taste kind of fake. It would have been better if they just made a pumpkin cider without the smoke. The nose is smoke apricot apple and pumpkin. The smoke is kind of meaty. Not too good.
