Pours a slightly auburn-golden yellow-orange. Aroma is sweet and spicy. Flavor is fantastic. Bright and flavorful with lots of spice. Cinnamon, nutmeg, clove, etc. Probably my favorite Woodchuck.

Tried this on tap at the Flying Saucer in Houston, TX. Spicy bouquet with cinnamon and nutmeg flavors, not normally a cider guy but this was tasty.

Bottle. Poured copper with heavy carbonation. Nose was apples, spicy nutmeg and cinnamon. Tastes of apple, spices, with a decent richness and complexity. This is a good cider, and I appreciated the fall spices.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
I donít usually go out of my way for cider but I donít pass it up when available; this was offered as a sample at Total Wine (Gilbert AZ) 9/20/12 at its fall beer tasting, the very last one. Nice way to end it. Color is pale straw as expected, clear with no head. Strong apple aroma; taste is the same, sweet apple with some caramel. I was in the right mood for this one; I donít think I could drink more than one. Itís tasty but sweet for me.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Hypersweet, bubblegum-apple aroma. Squat, brown, potato-masher 12oz bottle, OK label. Clear, pinky gold cider, no head. Mild vinegar, a little spice, fruit. Itís like someone put a jigger of pickled peach juice in apple juice. Slickkety mouthfeel, medium body, slightly astringent apple peel finish. Interesting. Marinade potential. Market Square Liquors, Timberlane.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Aggressive pour leads to a weak head that fades quickly to light carbonation. Very attractive dark brown with hints of amber in the glass. Aroma is pleasant and spicy at first, but I canít shake the impression of bubblegum here. The first sip is a baffling mix of spices that fades to a lingering bubblegum taste once again... it reminds me of biting into a crisp candied apple with a fresh stick of bubblegum in my mouth. I would have enjoyed it much more if the spices were toned down a bit.

Aroma is cinnamon and apples. Pours a a clear golden color. The taste is primarily cinnamon…with hints of apple. Overall, not my favorite hard cider.

2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Draft - pours pale yellowish amber with no head. Nose is bubble gum. Flavor adds ginger and spices. Wow, itís like a holiday candle dripped into my mouth. Not going to try this ever again. Interesting, but overboard on the spices. Mmm cloves.

Pours a nice clear orange color with a small white head. Really rich nutmeg and cinnamon aromas. Apple sweetness and apple juice with a touch of sugar. Maybe a bit of vanilla, too. The flavor has an apple pie flavor to it. Really great spice of cinnamon and nutmeg. Lots of apples and fruit sweetness. I really liked this.
