COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Woodchuck Fall Cider is the perfect combination of complexity and elegance, giving the cider a unique taste and special aroma not found in any other hard cider. Crafted using a centuries old technique, Woodchuck Fall Cider begins with an attractive cinnamon, nutmeg, spicy bouquet, and balances out the taste with a hint of American white oak. The appealing lingering aftertaste makes Woodchuck Fall Cider the perfect beverage for a crisp, autumn day. Woodchuck Fall Cider will be available in limited markets during Autumn 2009.

This was poured into a pint glass and a wine glass. This oneís got the same size head in both glasses (about a finger and a halfís worth of bubbly and subtle foaminess here and there). With a clear amber to hazed over yellow/orange color, thereís still a decent transparency allowing a ton of bubbles to surface gracefully. The smell had a unique blend that Iím not used to smelling for most ciders Iíve had. It goes a little something like this: a little cinnamon, nutmeg, and a light ginger give it a slight spiciness. The woodiness that slightly comes through seemed to be just a tad leaning towards the smoky side. The taste takes those previously mentioned flavors and basically just coats the apple flavoring already in it. On the palate, this one sat just a tad heavier than most ciders Iíve had, but not too much as its within the light to medium range just mostly closer to the medium side. This fairly sessionable cider had a decent harshness that ends up becoming slightly tame (did I just say that? tame carbonation in a cider, no hell has not frozen). This mouthfeel just shows that not all ciders do not pummel my tongue into submission. Overall, its about freaking time I find a cider I like. Best one Iíve ever had, quite possibly.

Hands down one of my favorite ciders. Hints of cinnamon, nutmeg, vanilla, and maple. Tastes great on a nippy day by the fire. Reminds me of all the wonderful things about fall. Not to sweet. Love this cider.

Pours amber. Smell is vanilla and apples and is quite sweet. Taste is sweet apples and vanilla. Some spices like cinnaman nutmeg, etc... mixed in but slightly behind the stronger vanilla flavor. Medium body and crisp and bubbly. Taste is good, but a strong flavor and not something I want a ton of.

This cider has a nice aroma of cinnamon and vanilla aroma too it. The taste follows the aroma with a strong apple taste added too it. The color is a dark golden shade and was very good.

Couple year old bottle. Pours thin, clear amber. Lots of spice on the nose. Taste is cinnamon apple. But not overly sweet. Only tried chilled, but seems like this would be great warm.

I love Woodchuck Cider. I love their amber cider and decided to give this one a try. Iím glad I did. Itís a sweet tasting cider, the maple syrup is the most noticeable. The overall taste is like a caramel apple. I enjoyed it.

This cider smells like ripe apples and cinnamon. The flavor is very sweet and the cinnamon obvious. Light to medium bodied, itís a tasty cider that I could see being good in cool weather.

EithCubes (4834) - New Jersey, USA - FEB 24, 2014
Bottle, not fresh by date but still smells new. Nose is cinnamon, light nutmeg, medium wood (oak rather than pine), sticky maple syrup and vanilla, love this, extremely autumnal and captures well the spirit of many foods and drinks of that time. Clear dark golden with medium carb and and ephemeral beige head. Taste is sweet, sticky medium body, no bitterness, and spices rule the day, principally cinnamon with only a swatch of nutmeg. Oak is calming and smooth. Would absolutely not want more than one of these a season, but itís plenty nice as a singleton.

onceblind (4014) - Denver, Colorado, USA - FEB 3, 2014
Clear dark golden with a maple-y nose of sticky sugar and a wee bit of pecan, and sweet fleshy apple, dipped in a maple cinnamon sauce. Flavor is candy sweet with cinnamon and caramel, loads of candy sweet apple, with a backing of maple and pecan. A bit cloy sweet but very dessert like.

Bottle. Straight from the bottle. The aroma is apples and cinnamon. The taste is apple juice, cinnamon, and dry spices.
