COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

16.9 oz bottle, thanks brenn79. Aroma is super stinky--3 week old gym socks sitting in vinegar is what I’m smelling. Pours hazy piss yellow with minimal foam. Taste is rancid and sour, vegetal, barely detectable smoke. Average carbonation, slick mouthfeel. Well, I thought it was going to be a drainpour, but maybe I can finish it with a little willpower.

Poured from a 500ml bottle. The aroma comes across as sweaty sock. Lactic like, soft smoke, rotten vegetable, earthy. The flavor is much more pleasant, apple, firm tartness, earthy, very light smoke, woody. This would be so much better if the aroma was pleasant. Footbalmed.

Pale yellow not much head. Light pumpkin, smoke, sweet, andntart. Easy palate, no smoke, tart, sour, crisp and refreshing.

500 ml bottle- Pours hazy straw golden with a thin crackly head. Aroma is lacking in the smoke department, overripe apples, a little farmhouse funk is nice, the pumpkins add more of a basic vegetal aroma. The taste is similar, apples, fruity, some funk, smooth, but i was really hoping for more from this. Still not bad.

IrishBoy (3905) - Bakersfield, California, USA - OCT 19, 2014
500 ml bottle from Imbibe Wine. Nose is sweet apples and a light smokiness with a very light hint of cinnamon. Lightly hazy yellow with a short lived yellow tinged head. Flavor is sweet apples with a tiny bit of tartness. The apples hide any pumpkin present. Not what I was expecting for the price paid.

J_man (750) - Tustin, California, USA - OCT 2, 2014
Oh oh. Starts off with a rotten pumpkin smell (not good). Hazy, insipid yellow color with almost no head. Fortunately, the taste is actually like smoked pumpkin and sugar and it’s quite good. Not much aftertaste, but that rotten pumpkin kind of sneaks in again. Kind of strange, but not bad.

nealblind (966) - Seattle, Alabama, USA - AUG 28, 2014
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

michaelinwa (623) - Bothell, Washington, USA - AUG 8, 2014
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.
