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.

Bottled. Brown as an unfiltered apple cider. A bit more apple juice in the nose than the Granny Smith I just had. Iím smelling the spices too, but they kind of have the ring of "natural flavor." I started this before checking the label closely and could easily notice the cinnamon spices. So it more or less fits in with the current flood of pumpkin pie spice beverages. Even so, itís a bit of a dare for a mass-marketed cider.

Dark clear copper. Crisp. Cinnamon and nutmeg work very well. Refreshing and warming, but not hot. Complex apple combination. I canít quite place which apples are used. Thanks Meagan.

A decent spices cider, a bit too sweet however, probably has added sugar and not just fructose from the apples, too bad

On the edge of "too sweet" on account of the cinnamon and vanilla, but the smell is excellent, woody and memorable.
Drank from the bottle but design is nice.
Good apple taste hinting towards caramel.

Itís a long story... I bought a 6 of Sierra Nevada Celebration ale, thinking it would be great, but it was too bitter for my tastes by far. So, I thought I could save the remaining 5 by mixing it with hard cider. My only experience with ciders was years ago, when we used to mix Guinness and Woodpecker cider, a great combo. Well, I got Woodchuck Granny Smith to mix with the Celebration, and that was pretty palatable, the cider being a bit thin, but decent. However, the last bottle in the sixer was not Granny Smith, but this spicy Fall cider. Yuck! Apple pie in a glass. No thanks.

Bottle pour. Translucent copper with lots of bubbles. Aroma has a heavy wood and caramel presence. Apple is there, too, of course, but that wood andvanilla really come through strong.

smells like bubblegum with a touch of cinnamon, which isnít necessarily bad...taste hits you much more with cinnamon and spice...but not overly so...not too sweet...right on the edge though...quite good strong flavor...very good for one, but perhaps a bit heavy and sweet for more than that
