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. I’m glad I did. It’s 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, it’s a tasty cider that I could see being good in cool weather.

3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
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 it’s plenty nice as a singleton.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
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. I’m 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, it’s a bit of a dare for a mass-marketed cider.
